Blake's crapy column
~It’s a Critical Hit!~
Hey, guys! Welcome to a new column called “It’s a Critical Hit!” I’ll be your criticizer, Blake Megido. Today, we have a touchy subject on Total Drama -- development. Either it’s no development, too little development, actual development, or just plain derailment.
Entering no development, we have a debatable and sometimes controversial character, Zoey, The Indie Chick. Now, what makes her The Indie Chick? Absolutely nothing. Exactly why she has no development, because her stereotype is literally The Nothing Chick, because being indie is basically being nothing. It doesn’t fit into any group. Exactly the case with Zoey. She’s a very bland oddball. Now, let’s get to why instead of me using facts to try to entertain you, because we all know I will not.
Firstly, her whole plot revolves around Multiple Personality Mike, who I dislike greatly, and I know that a bunch of other people agree as well. I have no respect for you if you support how Fresh TV portrayed Mike’s DID, so let’s not get into that any further and continue with Zoey. There’s really nothing much to say about Zoey. Well, she risked her life...no...that was for Mike. She talked to Gwen...no...that was for advice about Mike. Yeah, I have nothing. Too little Zoey, and I am so glad that’s the case.
Now we go to derailment before we go to actual development, because I love to make you sick to your stomach before you get the good things.
Our first character is Gwen in Total Drama All-Stars. Gwen acted like a pregnant lady throughout the whole season, and she was in the whole season. All very bad thirteen episodes. She was so bipolar the whole season. One minute she was drooling over Courtney and feeling uncomfortable with Duncan, and the next minute she was drooling with Courtney and done with Duncan. The worst part still hasn’t been mentioned yet, but here it is.
She became friends with CAMERON. AND ZOEY. This just makes her even more bland. She’s hanging out with bland people. At least in World Tour she was enjoyable for the first half of the season. In Action, she took necessary measures for Gwent. I feel like she’s just gone downhill from her Island self, and I don’t think there’s enough time for her to get back to that glory point that was once finalist Gwen. Okay, I’m running out of things to say, so let’s just get on to the next character who was derailed.
Oh, look. It’s someone that’s close to Gwen. Courtney. I’m not going to be biased in this review, but Courtney is my favorite character, and I hated to watch the crap that was Sundae Muddy Sundae. The Courtney we know is organized and strong. Why would she make a list? And why would she let Mal find it? She wouldn’t let Mike near her things in his entire lifetime. All the development and likability Courtney had over the episodes of All-Stars was flushed down the toilet and down the rabbit hole.
Basically, the whole cast of All-Stars was dumbed down even further than they were already going to be to make Mal more interesting. Which he isn’t.
DEVELOPMENT TIME! LAND! I SEE LAND!
the process of developing or being developed.
So Total Drama, how are you doing with this? Let’s see…
Island - 10/10 would watch again. This season was absolutely amazing, and I fell in love with it once I saw the first episode. I could watch every single episode until I remembered everything, especially Dodgebrawl, I Triple Dog Dare You!, That’s Off the Chain!, Hook, Line, and Screamer, and No Pain, No Game.
Action - Action will always be a guilty pleasure. Some episodes I really love in this season. I loved them because Courtney was there half the season. The first half was kind of “meh” for me.
World Tour - Heather defines World Tour development, because she’s the only one that got any. Everyone else was just the same from what I’ve seen, except Cody became more confident…?
Revenge of the Island - Um...there’s...Dawn trying to sabotage Scott’s plan...and yeah, I have nothing.
All-Stars - NOTHING. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Alright, so that’s it for my criticism/review of development in Total Drama. I hope you liked the first entry of It’s a Critical Hit!, and we’ll see you next time with

XxSolarEclipse, an admin on our Total Drama Island Camps Wiki enquired to us about his expierence in the camp. "This was an enjoyable camp, because it was full of drama, backstabs and development, along with redemption and dethroning of well known characters, while providing heaps of entertainment. You never really knew what to expect, and it was always crazy." ~ Liam, 2014
Thanks for reading everyone, and next month I will be doing a first impressions on Big Family 12: Double Trouble! Stay tuned, and happy camping!
