When we last left Kim and Ron at the end of Kim Possible: So the Drama
(the second full-length movie in the series and also the season three finale, which was originally
intended to be the series finale), the pair of crime-fighting heroes, who'd been best friends since preschool, kiss on the dance floor of their junior prom.
Yup, true love realized at last, and in the one place they hadn't ever anticipated-- right in front of their noses.
Now bring on season four with Kim and Ron as boyfriend and girlfriend! And Disney Channel does so in style by debuting the first four episodes of the "second series" in a marathon.Ill-Suited:
Kim and Ron are still glowing from their first (non-emotion-chip-caused) kiss. Dr. Dementor devises a plan to turn Kim's new super-suit from So the Drama
against her. At the same time Ron, freaking out about a Bonnie comment regarding "trading up" and thinking he hears Kim say she's gonna dump him, also
wants the super-suit, so he can be the star quarterback of the Mad Dogs, impress Kim and not lose her.
Such a cute episode! Poor insecure Ron almost killing himself to impress his new girlfriend has a bit of a Fox and the Hound
Tod/Vixey vibe to it which I liked (or maybe it's more of an Aladdin/Jasmine thing). Dementor always cracks me the heck up, too, and you gotta love those little collectibles throwing plates at Kim and Ron with deadly velocity.The Big Job:
The return of the surprisingly effective team of the (always effective) Shego and the (otherwise inept) Señor Senior, Junior, as Junior wants to pull off a big heist to impress his father for his birthday. Ron again almost kills himself trying to impress Kim, this time by attempting to get a job.
Gotta love the return of the Spinning Tops of Doom, and the parallel with the first Junior/Shego team-up episode: Kim and Shego fighting as the main fight, while Ron and Junior fight in hilarious fashion (last time with the hair remarks, this time with the parking). Ron tackling Junior and then quickly trying to stick a quarter in the parking meter was gold.Trading Faces:
The tweebs, by way of an advanced placement program, are moved up several grades to freshman year, causing no end of headaches for senior Kim. And they get all the cool stuff, just like the class of '04 got in my high school just as soon as I graduated in '00.
Meanwhile, Paris Hilton wannabe (and new villain) Camille Leone, who's become a shapeshifter due to all the experimental plastic surgery she's gotten, goes around committing crimes in the guise of other famous people to frame them.
Nice episode, even if the Kim-learns-to-appreciate-her-brothers storyline has been done before.The Cupid Effect:
One of the rare instances in which we see Wade outside his room, he falls hard for Monique and (at Ron's accidental suggestion) creates a device to make her fall in love with him. Though it's in more of a creepy "I'm gonna get my sweet boy an ice-cream cone" than a "kissing" way, and it's only for a few minutes at a time.
Meanwhile Ron deals with having a girlfriend on Valentine's Day for the first time ever, and Junior steals the plans to Wade's machine, wanting to use it for evil.
Pretty cool to see a Wade-centric episode.
Anyway, KP is back, baby! Wooooo!
