Synopsis:

Spoiler:
After Jim's Black Sidekick is mistaken as a hero for thwarting a robbery that Jim was responsible for stopping, tempers flare between the two friends when Black Sidekick thinks Jim is jealous of the attention he's receiving, and Jim feels that Black Sidekick is taking credit for something he didn't do and hogging the limelight. Meanwhile, Stephanie and Katie find themselves at odds over personal matters, Chaka discovers a weakness in his powers, and Daphne's suspicions over Katie's boyfriend intensify.


Episode 10 of 22

Last episode of the year. Returns in 3 weeks on January 4th.

I had a little fun with the original synopsis. Let's just say it's exagerrated.

That description is not sensitive to minorities and is therefore offensive.

I demand you change "sidekick" to "Hero-Assisted-Crime-Fighting-American" before I complain to the Mods!

I liked this episode. I was disappointed that they already offed Reggie Lee but it was a fun episode overall. And I liked the discussion with the dad regarding the son's "kryptonite".

So wait...the son's kryptonite is getting horny?

I have been sticking with this show but I hate to say if this show suddenly went off the air without notice I don't think I would care too much. I kind of like the over all story line but the wife's character annoys me (she slams the son's dreams of playing football and uses her powers to cheat at bowling? She's always been a huge hypocrite and this episode is no exception) and I really don't think the writing has been strong enough to make me really care for any of the characters so far.

I liked the episode, too. I'm glad they're moving the larger story arc forward. ( at Chaka being able to bowl just because he knows where the ball should hit, though).

If that was my "kryptonite" I'd be dead by now (or a dark shade of green).

Katie gets walked all over by her "boyfriend" and takes it. Katie = dumbshit.

Man, don't get me started on Katie. They obviously wrote the character to pander to comic book fanboys watching this show. The fact that there's no girl that hot that is so geeky and can't get anywhere with men in the world aside, they drop geeky cultural references so much in nearly every scene she is in that's it's become heavy handed.

I really hate how her character is written as well.

Are we all aware that "Chaka" also played Young Jim Kirk in the latest Star Trek movie? Holy Crap!

This x1000. I have nothing else to offer, as you have summed it up perfectly.
