A parent / student project seems innocent enough...
16 June 2007 | by vex86birdSee all my reviews

This episode really gets season 2 rolling. It's funny as the students all get a parent / student project to create a device that toasts bread using only the items provided. Everyone's true intentions shine as they're forced to deal with their parents. The outcomes are drastically different and the process to create these inventions brings some relationships closer while others are blown apart. The main conflict is between Mikey and his lack of parents to help him for his project. Mikey in my opinion isn't the most believable whenever he has his 'emotional' episodes and this is one of those episodes. So as for drawbacks that's probably the one for this episode as most all of the Mikey scenes are of him sulking. Things are likely to resolve though as the judging takes place at the end...
