Growing Pains Season 3, Episode 11, “Broadway Bound”

Growing Pains Season 3, Episode 11, “Broadway Bound”

Mike is having Ben film him acting, so Mike can take notes from it and make sure to nail his audition for Dewey High’s production of “Picnic.” Monica is also coming over, so they can work on it. Ben asks Mike about this girl and what he should do. She’s the only one in his class that wears a bra. Mike advises Ben to kiss her and not “slug” her as Ben puts it. Ben leaves and Monica shows up. She shows Mike an article from Variety about how a Broadway production of “Our Town” is being done. That was the play they both did together a few episodes ago. Mike suggests they should just forget “Picnic” and try out for “Our Town” on Broadway. read more

We open at a senior class meeting to decide the style of class rings the students should order this year. Mr. Belding gets the eerie feeling that someone’s missing. Yes, Mr. Belding, Jessie and Kelly are missing! Why aren’t you doing anything to find them! Jessie’s the class president for Christ’s sake! She would be involved in a meeting like this!

But, no, it’s Zack Morris and Tori he’s talking about because they were off consummating the love the writers forgot about the last few weeks. read more

Dan de Fleurette. Episode 3×04

Dan de Fleurette. Episode 3×04

Georgina knows a secret! What will she do with it? Chuck bought a hotel and rented out the penthouse so he and Blair could colour together, and Scott nearly outed himself as the Secret Love Child! Oh, and we’re still dealing with Serena dropping out of Brown before starting.

And in an episode called “Dan de Fleurette”, I’m guessing we’re going to see flower power judging. I hope there is no threesome involved. We still have that coming up. Will this be the episode?

Oh. Great. A Jenny episode. And one where she establishes herself as “Queen” of Constance which Blair left to her. “Nervous subjects ‘twitter’ and ‘tweet’” according to Gossip Girl. Are they trying to be meta again? read more

The New Class Season 3, Episode 20: “R.J.’s Handicap”

The New Class Season 3, Episode 20: “R.J.’s Handicap”

Still no resolution to the Ryan-Lindsay break-up? No? Okay, just checking. Usually when I see the words “To Be Continued,” I expect to have a continuation of the story in a timely matter, but this is The New Class so it’s my fault for expecting them to make sense.

No, instead, we’re starting an arc of episodes on board a boat because if there’s anything that says Saved by the Bell to me, it’s a boat.

Our gang’s on a boat for two months for a “semester at seas.” They claim the boat is the S.S. Morning Starr, but I’ll be referring to it as the S.S. Suspension of Disbelief. Although does this mean that Suite Life on Deck copied off The New Class? If so, that’s just sad. read more

When Maggie and Jason are talking to the doctor, Ben tries to get free and “use the bathroom.”

Yeah, “bathroom.”

The doctor stops him in time and Ben heads into surgery. read more
