  • The gang set out for a camping/hiking weekend to explore the outdoors. One or two of the storylines were good while the Belding/Screech one was pathetic as usual. Its a shame too as their characters have really taken a nosedive for the worst recently.moreless

    The episode starts off with the gang all together on a camping/hiking trip in the woods. Katie and Nicky used to go out in past seasons but things cooled off until this episode. The chemistry bewteen the two came back into play but Katie ended up taking it the wrong way. She became possesive, paranoid, and way too overprotective of Nicky. She tries to play that "we need to hang out, dont hang out with anyone else" Fatal Attraction type crap and it got old quick. The icing on the cake was when Katie followed Nicky to a campsite where he accidently fell into a group of girls which led Katie to missinpertrate as him cheating on her. Nicky gives her an ulimatum that if they ever have a shot at working out again then she needs to chill out with the quickness with the whole jelousy thing. The other major storyline was the usual waste of time Belding/Screech story arc. Belding is trying to take a picture of a rare bird that will bring him money. Both of them barely miss catching it on various occasions until Screech comes up with the brilliant idea of having them wear the most hideous bird costumes imaginable. I almost spit the food i was eating out of my mouth when i saw those two rejects in those outfits. The plan, as usual, doesnt work out and they ended up getting attacked by wild animals. The episode ends with Nicky and Katie having a heart to heart about how Katie needs to get over the jelousy thing if she really wants another shot at a relationship with him. She agrees, they hug and the episode fades to black. Once again an interesting premise with seeing Katie, out of character, as the jealous type. The Belding/Screech storyline should be scrapped every week as they just keep getting worse and worse. I think it was Dennis Haskins who said during the SBTB E! THS that towards the end of The New Class tenure, the writers were insulting the actors intelligence with the immature and babyish storylines both he and Screech got week in and week out. I believe him as the proof is in the pudding.moreless
