That's So Weird
Seven friends discover a low-rated, silly TV network called So Weird TV that’s chock full of hilarious spoofs, commercials, and celebrity guests.
S01:E01 - Feetza
It’s a busy day at Weird when Alana and the gang have to come up with a commercial for the latest freaky Jamco product: ‘Feetza’ – a frozen pizza that also soothes tired feet. We also check in on Depressi High, witness a food-throwing frenzy and see just how weird the Cafeteria Ladies can get.
S01:E02 - Beef Whiz
A.J. is tapped to star in a commercial for Beef Whiz, a food that is spread-ible but not really edible. But A.J. doesn’t care – he’ll eat anything, even brussel sprouts. In other segments, a home is infested with some scurvy pirates, we talk ABBA with the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Hulk tries to manage his anger. Really, he does try.
S01:E03 - Scissors
The dangers of running with scissors are explored as only the So Weird TV team can as they make a public service announcement. We also get up close and personal at the Super Hero awards as we follow one nominee, a side kick named Fish Boy.
S01:E04 - Tacorea
Yo amigos! Join in the fun as Weird makes a commercial for Tacorea, a Mexican restaurant where the food isn’t great but hey – you can wrap your baby in a tortilla diaper! We also meet a doctor who reminds us of a certain American president, witness a severe case of Raptoritis (huh?!) and hang out with special guests Clique Girlz.
S01:E05 - Tried
When Joey and Alex start slinging food at one another, Alana gets her inspiration for an ad featuring the newest lame product from Jamco – a laundry detergent that tries but never gets the job done. Tag along as we swing by to see Lex Luthor in Really Smallville and visit the Sci-Fi Expo where we meet Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings), Brent Spiner (Star Trek), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) and Laura Vandervoort (Smallville).
S01:E06 - Pretty as a Picture
How do you achieve true beauty? According to Jamco, you get it by literally wearing a picture frame around your face. But don’t try this at home. Also on the So Weird TV network, zombies that sing, a chef that uses only a hammer and Uncle Fun Times cheers up a family in collapsed house. It’s good and weird.
S01:E07 - Hamicil
Can a pimple remedy also taste like pork? Lucky Hannah finds out on both counts. Also on the network, some serious Full Contact Hopscotch, Daniel Book gets a job, and a certain Man in The Yellow hat is brought in for questioning by the police.
S01:E08 - Shantz
“Shantz” become the latest fashion rage at the network. Whether you wear them as a shirt or pants, they are like nothing you have ever seen – or worn – before. Also on the network, Kayla meets the Toronto Rock Lacrosse team, Logan and Wilf talk snakes, and a romantic rock ballad goes all wrong at a camp lodge. Don’t they always?
S01:E09 - Greeting Card
The latest Jamco commercial is greeting cards for all occasions, including friends who stink. Stay tuned as we meet the not-so-hot pop group, The Bonus Brothers who play a mean recorder, and get a taste of a new breakfast cereal, Goat Meal. And James gets a once in a lifetime interview with our guest star, the lovely Eva Avila.
S01:E10 - Background Music
A shameless Alana uses her new background music machine to secretly manipulate her Weird colleagues. On Pop Trendz we meet the newly married Super Mario and Princess Peach and later, Joey fights a card board box. And loses. Big time.
S01:E11 - Drool Aid
A new beverage sensation hits Weird – Drool Aid, the fruity drink you make from your own spit. Yum! We visit the local mall food court where a giant seagull has taken up residence and Adam Ruggerio from YTV’s The Next Star is found wandering the halls of Depressi High.
S01:E12 - Chock Lick
The Weird team is taste testing Jamco chocolate that lasts forever – but can it really be chocolate? Logan and Wilf talk ospreys and Carlos Bustamente from YTV’s The Zone guest stars as himself, a decision he soon regrets.
S01:E13 - Leaky Roof
The roof at the network building is leaking but Kayla is the only one who realizes this Weird problem. We get a sneak peek at the next installment of Twilight and we try to find out what adults know about kid culture. That part is pretty short.
