  • This is a great story, showing the everyday turmoil of high school.

    The first day of school! No one more excited than Kyle, however the principle is trying to put a damper on Kyle being enrolled at Beachwood. Kyle still searches for his place in the world. At lunch Kyle makes his first friend, Deichman, who shares Kyle's passion for drawing. At home, the Trager's plan for a romantic rendezvous is disrupted by the appearance of Tom Foss. With the guidance from Deichman to the library to learn more for his placement test, Kyle is able to pass the test with colors. Josh is attacked Toby, who has a grudge with Josh for calling him stupid. As Toby is throwing the first punch Kyle comes to save the day. When everyone is turning in for the night, the audience finds out that Tom has installed surveillance cameras in all the rooms of the Trager's house.

    I meticulously enjoyed this episode; it resembled high school suitably, from the trouble with the teacher, cafeteria argument, to school fight. I really adore how Kyle behaved in the fight, being defensive and not offensive, protecting Josh and himself also not lifting a hand in retaliation. Too bad most fights do not go that way. Now, I know Tom defiantly knows something about Kyle, about who Kyle really is.
