Episode Summary

The Natural

On the first day of school, Tia sets her sights on the new boy at school and changes her entire schedule to be in his classes - including auto repair and wood shop - before discovering he already has a girlfriend. Meanwhile, Tamera joins the school's softball team, but unwanted coaching from an overzealous Ray makes her want to escape the pressure by quitting.

  • Typical "overbearing parent" episode.

    This is the typical "overbearing parent" episode that has been common in family sitcoms since the beginning of the genre. Ray lives vicariously through his daughter Tamera by having her fulfill one of his childhood dreams of being on a softball team. The expectedly over-the-top parental involvement makes this episode rather predictable. Thankfully, it is this predictability that makes themes such as this one so enjoyable. Tamera's response to Ray's behavior is also rather expected, but the emotional expression is done well enough to appear in synch with the script.

    Anna Slotky (Denise) also has a few lines in this episode, so I believe she should be included in the guess roster.moreless
  • Pretty good!

    Tia sees a cute boy and transfers into all his classes. Tamera joins the softball team when offered to by the coach. Ray is excited for Tamera and starts pushing her to do better. He even goes onto the field during a game to give her lessons. Tamera quits because of it. Terrence invited his boss to play Bridge with him and Lisa, but he and Lisa don't know how to play. He was hoping to get a promotion. He does get one for stinking so badly! Ray backs off and Tamera joins again. Tia finds out that the boy already has a girlfriend.

    I did like this episode! It was okay, but a little boring maybe. I give it an 8.0!moreless
  • Never put too much pressure on someone.

    Tamera joins the school softball team, and she is really enjoying herself. Well, then Ray gets in the way of her enjoyment. He starts putting way too much pressure on her, and he embarrasses her during practice. This upsets her, and she quits the team. Ray realises what he did to upset her, and he finally comes to his senses. Being on a sports team is supposed to be fun, and there should never be pressure. The only time you lose is when you really want to win and you overwork yourself. That's what Ray was doing to Tamera, but when he backed off, she won!moreless
