  • While this may not have been the best installment to date, great tension between characters, and racial tension give this episode a dramatic boost.

    The Powderpuff Girls Game, ridiculous comments from an assistant coach, tension between schoolmates, relationship issues, racist explosions between students, and a field walkoff deliver a good episode in this fantastic under-viewed series. Julie and Matt are having troubles, after Matt was in a photo with some girls, and Matt doesn't make it any worse when he chooses Julie third for his Powderpuff Girls Football Team. Even though, Julie, being the football coach's daughter, knows her stuff. Which later leads to a somewhat heartwarming scene between father and daughter when Coach Taylor and Julie play some football in the street. There's anger between Lyla and Tyra, which has been seen before in this show. However, with the addition of the possible relationship between Lyla and Tyra's parents, the conflict between these two hasn't gotten old yet. The racial blowup brought on by an assistant coach adds a new sense of drama and frustration to the show, in a good way. The racial issue outlines the characters inner thoughts towards each other, on and off the field, and their thoughts on their coaches, and teachers. Some people want the issue to go away, so everyone can hang out with everyone, some people want the issue to go even farther, adding a new interesting level to the show. A good episode.
