Recap: Kim Possible S 1 E 15 All The News

Ron starts writing for the school newspaper, looking for a big scoop. He gets one when "extreme" daredevil Adrena Lynn has a stunt go wrong; when Kim comes to the rescue, she discovers that the stunt was faked with a dummy. The now-disgraced star doesn't take her fall from grace very well, and comes looking for revenge.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Amusement Park of Doom: Adrena Lynn's death trap is set in one of these.
  • Do Not Adjust Your Set: Adrena Lynn uses some equipment from her former show to broadcast her message.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Adrena Lynn had an impressive reputation for fearlessly performing dangerous stunts, until it was revealed that she was faking them.
  • Sadistic Choice: Ron and Brick Flagg are both stuck in Lynn's death trap in the expectation that Kim will only be able to save one of them. Kim easily rescues them both.
  • School Newspaper Newshound: Ron assiduously searches for a big story after joining the school newspaper. After a few false starts, he gets his big break when he witnesses Kim rescuing what turns out to be a dummy dressed as Adrena Lynn from an apparent stunt mishap.
  • Shoo Out the New Guy: Adrena Lynn was originally intended to be a recurring villain, but unenthusiastic audience reaction limited her to this one-shot appearance (she did appear for a moment in the background of the Grand Finale stinger).
