  • OK Episode.

    This episode is OK. It has funny moments (especially the "explode boy" scene). However, it is not one of the classic ones. It is boring in spots and is kind of a filler episode. I think even though the writers are trying to make a point, they went pretty extreme as it isn't THAT bad for girls gym. Overall a decent episode, but nothing spectacular.
  • Bobby Slam features Bobby and Conn Jr. competing for a spot on the school's athletic team and their parents trying to do the right thing in the meanwhile.

    Bobby Slam is an excellent episode in that both Bobby and Connie know what's wrong with all the adults responsible for them and they still roll with the punches. Bobby has finally gotten a spot on a real sporting team at his school (finally) and when he's finally gaining popularity with the guys on the team, Peggy-with-a-Y Hill butts-in and demands that girls get the equal opportunity to compete for a spot on the boys wrestling team. The coach gets overly upset at the idea a a female on the boys team, because he has a low opinion of women anyway, and he decides to boot-out Bobby Hill in retribution. Tune in to watch the sparks fly.
