  • It's a very funny episode!

    T.J. gets a chance of a life time when he is accepted to go on the game show, "Knowledge College," where 3 students answer hard questions to win a large amount of money. At first, T.J. is happy he's going on the game show and is not nervous at all. But when he gets to school, everyone is talking about T.J. going on the game show and how they are all going to watch it. So, now with all this pressure on T.J., he is filled with anxiety. The night before he is going on the show he stays up all night long, drinking coffee, and studying.

    I think this episode is so funny and entertaining. I really enjoy watching this episode.moreless
