  • A great message done in a unique way

    The dangers of smoking were discussed on other episodes, and it would have been very good if they'd just stuck to the same script. But, they managed to get original int he ways they tried to stop Epstein from smoking; the shock things was the funniest,w ith everyone but him getting shocked. And, thent here was Horshack throwing water on Juan. Kudos for not just making a very good message but doing it in a wayt hat sets this episode apart from tohers like it.moreless
