  • Excellent showcase of how the world perceives people

    Take two black kids and try to put them in a preppy white school. What do you get? Injustice and unfair tactics. Making the kids take a totally unfair test was a good way to show how they discriminate, with subtlety.

    It was great to see the school taken down a few notches and the headmaster embarassed.

    Definitely a lesson for everyone, even today in 2006.

    The only negative about this episode? Well, it was meant to be silly, but the outfits! It was painful to watch Drummond come down the stairs wearing that prep school uniform!

    I think Todd Bridges did a great job in this episode, showing why he was cast in the role of Willis.
