The New Class Season 4, Episode 21: “The Fifth Wheel”

Oh, yippee, aren’t I just lucky that we get another Space Camp episode this week since the first one was so amazing! Why don’t we just move the setting of the show to Space Camp and do everything there! I mean, why the hell not? It’s not like this is a show about high school!

Well, we open with Ryan and Rachel getting so lovey dovey with each other that even Barney the Dinosaur would want to kick the shit out of them for being more fake sugary than a bowl full of Splenda. Ryan’s got Rachel’s breakfast and that’s the most amazing thing a boyfriend could ever do for his girl. Why do I get the idea the writers of The New Class were never touched by the opposite sex in high school? read more

The College Years Episode 11: “A Thanksgiving Story”

The College Years Episode 11: “A Thanksgiving Story”

I swear, it’s complete coincidence this is the episode for Black Friday. But, in any case, now that you’ve had a good Thanksgiving meal (at least if you’re reading this in America), let’s ruin it all with Thanksgiving, Saved by the Bell style.

In the cold opening, the boys are packing to drive home for Thanksgiving when Kelly rushes in, excited that Thanksgiving weather in LA is going to be in the nineties. Well, what the hell do you expect? Los Angeles isn’t exactly known for cold weather. You act like it’s the first time you’ve been there. Screech pontificates about being eighteen and just sounds like an idiot. read more

Season 4, Episode 10: “Mandingo”

This week on Growing Pains, A trip to Martha’s Vineyard goes wrong when Mike and Julie are the only ones who make the ferry, and they end up alone together for the night. Even though Julie was introduced last week via last week’s The Nanny, i’m surprised it took them this long to do this type of story with her and Mike.

Mike is trying to bang Tawny, who appeared in season 4, episode 5: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. According to IMDB, this is her last appearance. She sounded and looked like Carol too at the beginning. Mike does a card trick for Tawny and asks, “was your card The Ace of Spades.” Tawny replies, “no,” but Mike hands her a piece of paper saying just that meaning Mike “read” Tawny’s mind. What follows is a horribly lazy way for Mike to get Tawny to makeout with him. He says, “I can read your thoughts to. Shame on you.” Tawny replies, “shame on me.” Before she starts making out with Mike. In comes Julie, who Tawny has no idea who she is or why she’s folding Mike’s underwear. Julie tells Mike about how he knows he’s not suppose to have any girls in his room, which turns out to be a real dealbreaker for Tawny. She leaves after Julie heads back to the house, where Mike ends up going too. read more

The New Class Season 4, Episode 20: “Science Fair”

The New Class Season 4, Episode 20: “Science Fair”

We went nine years in this franchise without a science fair so why the hell not because science fairs are exciting and shit, right? Oh, god, why do I review this show? Oh, yeah, because there’s people on the internet who enjoy reading my pain.

And we’re off to a good start as Screech annoys Mr. Belding with his senior year science project: an automatic nose blower. Yeah, seriously, this is what almost caused Bayside to win the science fair one year because in the Saved by the Bell universe, science fairs are multi-school competitions since the writers of this show have no idea how high school actually works. What’s worse is it’s this incompetent project that’s supposed to be Screech’s crowning achievement despite the fact it never works and not the fact Screech invented artificial life. God, I hate this show. read more

Season 4, Episode 9: “The Nanny.”

When Maggie goes back to work after the birth of her baby, Jason hires a young, pretty co-ed to serve as a nanny. Only problem is, Maggie feels threatened and wants the girl fired. This week on Growing Pains. Just reading that, even before I watched the episode, gave me a headache.
I pretty much hated this episode. It represents why Maggie is probably the most annoying character on this show.

A main problem is that almost half of this episode could’ve been cut down considerably. The Seavers have made a schedule of when everyone takes care of the baby. For this day, Carol takes care the baby as soon as she gets home. If she can’t do it for some reason, Mike takes over. If Mike can’t do it, then Ben takes over. I guess Jason takes care of the baby until any of the kids get home, which makes sense. Maggie’s going back to work today. Problem is that it seems for Jason to have a such hard time when he’s trying to take care of Chris later when he has patients and the kids aren’t home. Doesn’t he have patients earlier when the kids aren’t home either? Maggie’s also having a trouble leaving the baby to go to work so there’s that. read more
