    After Blair and Sue Ann are joking around about their weight, everyone in the dorm begins to focuss on dieting. even Mrs. Garret gets into the current trend. When Blair sets Sue Ann up with a boy from Bates Academy that has a high social status, Sue Ann starts looking at herself differently. Determined to look better in a swimsuit for their date, Sue Ann decided to go on a crash diet. Before long, a series of problems occurs, and Sue Ann colapses. This is very good episode of "The Facts of Life". i think it can really be influential.moreless

    ok, so the writing and acting is campy, but the plot is great. All of season one has amazing depth. I can't beleive that some of these shows were ever aired in the late 70's.



    This episode is about dieting and the teen fashion industry putting pressure on the children. Natalie (the chubby one) explains it all, she's always well beyond her years.



    Season 1 was so different then the rest of the seasons, and sometimes it is refreshing, but I am happy that the show was revamped, there were too many girls and I could never get too attached to any of them.moreless
