Episode Summary

EDIT
College Kid
Lena, Gina, Charmaine, Dorian and Terrell decide to rent a house together. While seeing the temperamental landlord about a plumbing problem, Gina, Charmaine and Terrell discover that he is Langston "Sweet Knuckles" Paige, a former major league baseball star. He is unsure about what to do with his life, so they encourage him to enroll in college. Langston accompanies Terrell to class to check out the Hillman campus. He finds that the professor is an old flame. Gina's abusive ex-boyfriend Dion violates his probation by contacting her. He finally shows up in person in an attempt to win her back. She repeatedly turns him down, and learns that Dion hasn't really changed at all. Langston steps in and manages to convince Dion to leave Gina alone.moreless

    This could have been a good spinoff with the new characters that were added during this season. It also made a good closure on what the new kids did with themselves before the series ended. Most likely this episode was probably supposed to air before the series finale.



    In this episode, none of the original characters appeared and provided a good chance for character development of all the new kids at Hillman with the use of Langston Paige.



    Unfortunately, NBC chose not to air this episode during the first run of the series along with several other good episdoes that were left to be seen only in syndication.moreless
