  • A step competition may lead to more bitterness between members of the same team than against the squad from a rival hall.

    8.9
    Whitley and Jaleesa are helping train the step team for their hall. It's a tough regimen, with moves coordinated to perfection. They're big on practice, though Whitley proves to be a tough case as a director, and Jaleesa urges her to slow it down. Freddie is an eager tryout but not quite up to standard. It's getting close to the deadline--feet are sore and nerves are worse.



    Then a very important guest arrives, a 92-year-old graduate of the college, who stayed in Whitley's same room when she was a student. And she won't let Whitley forget it. Gilbert had much admired the woman, but Ms. Pruitt is not so enamored of her company. It's a fragile peace as Whitley tries to leave a good impression.



    Elsewhere, Dwayne is tapped to help a football player boost his math skills in time for a big exam. It's not easy sailing for him, either.



    A witty show about courtesy, changing roles and functioning under pressure. Measures up to the usual high standards of the second season.moreless
