Mikey: High School drop-out
23 June 2007 | by vex86birdSee all my reviews

A lot of later episodes focusing on Mikey kind of annoy me. Of all of the turbulent Mikey episodes this one isn't too bad. After dropping out of High School Mikey steps into a new world and has to decide if he belongs there or back in High School. The message is actually well displayed as you see life for Mikey on both ends. The episode moves a little slow though as you watch Mikey's progression into a life of a poor rocker. Parker's attempts at getting through to Mikey are pretty clever though and his attempt at getting advice from his parents ends brutally funny. If this episode moved a little quicker I'd probably rate it higher, but regardless it's not all that bad.
