  • Coach Reeves gets it in the keester.

    Ohhh, where to begin? First of all, the plotline is very similar to the Season 1 episode, "Pregnant Pause". Replace Reese with Falahey, and Darlene with the white girl, and the two stories are almost interchangeable, except that Falahey finds out the baby isn't his.

    Second, this was a disastrous attempt to center an episode around one of the "new guys." Falahey's character is about as interesting as reading the dictionary. Heck, even Goldstein would have been more entertaining.

    And finally, the PLAYERS are supposed to learn the lessons, not Reeves. Reeves basically winds up with egg on his face at the end. Anybody would find it hard to sympathize with his plight (getting out of jury duty) in this one.

    Another clunker.
