Why It Rocks
- The show mocks its Chinese rip-off, Miracle Star.
- The Wattersons and their doppelgängers are very entertaining in this episode.
- The song, "Be Your Own You" is very memorable.
- Excellent character and story-development.
- Many hilarious moments, such as how the Wattersons do very risky things to make their doppelgängers stop copying them.
- It gives us a great moral about being original, not copying others and acting as yourself.
- The ending and Miracle Star getting cancelled are both satisfying for fans of TAWOG.
- The animation is seemingly at its best in this episode, especially during the speeding truck scene.
