Storyline

Constantly finding herself in the shadow of her brother, Shelley finds a new identity. The 'Dark Siders' were a group of kids that didn't fit the regular high-schooler mold as they dressed darkly, wreaked havoc, and were very mysterious in nature. The 'Dark Siders' are essentially everything Parker is not and therefore very appealing to Shelley. As much as Parker likes distancing himself from his sister the prospect of Shelley becoming a Dark Sider could be disastrous as she could very well get in over her head. Parker must decide to intervene to save his sister from possible self destruction. Written by Anonymous

Shelley tries to find her identity... With the Dark Siders.
16 June 2007 | by vex86birdSee all my reviews

Shelley's always living in her brother's shadow and strives for her own identity. Before the 'goth' movement there was the 'Dark Siders' presence in High School. Although not a popular group they are a tight knit rebel group. Parker then has to go against his normal tendencies to watch his sister fail as her future could be in jeopardy. The episode is a little bland, but the general story is believable and good. That and there's a funny side story as a new test given throughout the school found Kubiac to be the smartest kid in Santo Domingo. Throughout the episode Lemmer and Musso try to figure out how this result is possible. All in all I'd rate this episode pretty well.
