  • More Filler, and it's a Brenda episode so brace yourself.

    So Brenda is getting sick of not doing anything. All Kelly and Donna want to do is shop. Brenda thought about cheerleading, but she can't stand the cheerleaders. She decides to join the teen hotline with Andrea. Andrea brilliantly questions Brenda, and correctly points out that it's something that you can't just do half-ass. Well a girl is being date raped, and calls in after hours and Brenda is there to take the phone while waiting for Kelly to pick her up. Brenda ends up helping her out and ultimately the culprits are arrested on the spot while doing the dirty deed. Your typical Season 1 episode, as the characters were still being develped. This episode offers nothing as far as historical significance, but one of those "lesson episodes" about date rape I guess. Brandon thinking the older woman likes him is just filler within the filler. MVC: I guess Brenda (4).
