  • Great episode, just not as memorable as the others.

    In this episode, Nick's father tells him that unless he can maintain a C average in school, he'll have to join the army once he's eighteen. Nick doesn't want to join the army and dreams of being a professional drum player, and he and his band plan on joining a battle of the bands competition. However, they're not very good and Lindsey tells Nick later that they need more practice. Nick tries to force the band to practice until they sound good, which leads to Daniel and the others quitting. Sam, meanwhile, is having anxiety troubles in gym class when the coach tries to force him into taking a shower. Once he finally decides to do it, Alan and his friends begin bullying him and lock him out of the gym, naked. This was a pretty good episode. I couldn't find anything wrong with it. Lots of funny moments, awkwardness, and a few slightly sad moments as well. It just wasn't as memorable as all the episodes before it, but that doesn't mean it's forgettable, either.
