The Green Room was a very informative episode and a great way to introduce the character of Dylan McKay. We got a climpse of what Dylan\'s life was like, being a lonely, rich kid. It is during this episode that Brandon becomes friends with Dylan. Brandon also tries his hand at surfing with the help of Dylan, but decides surfing his not for him. Brandon was having trouble doing the writting assignment assigned to him by Andrea, but after hanging out with Dylan and his surfer wannabees, and along with his sister, Brenda having saved the life of Sarah, known to Dylan and her surfer buddies as Betty, nearly drowns surfing while drunk, does he find something to write about-being in The Green Room.
This episode, in my opinion, should have been the first episode not the second.
