  • In this episode they briefly bring out the stress over choosing careers at a young age.

    I thought this episode was pretty good, because it was the only one so far that addressed something serious. All of Slater's friends seemed to know what they wanted to do with their lives, besides him. You could tell that he was beginning to feel overwhelmed when the idea occurred to him that wrestling was the only thing he was really interested in.
    Mind you, they're only freshman in high school. Often, teachers and parents stress over their children choosing a career path for them when they finish college. It can be stressful to even address things like that, especially with a child. Even with Zack's foolish antics, Slater realizes that he's just a kid and that he has so much more time to figure out what he wants to do with his life, later on. I think everyone can take a small lesson from this episode.
