Nice flashback!
27 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was an enjoyable episode. I just finished watching it. I love all the old afterschool specials. I never saw the really good ones because by the time I was 12, it was the 1990's and the series had gone down hill. The 1970's and the ones up to 1986 are the best. This one of course is about a movie star's daughter who tries to have a normal life. She gets mixed up with a bunch of snobs who only want her around because of her famous father. She doesn't realize this until the end of course, but she finally stands up for herself and gives those snobs the big shove. She realizes that her real friend is Jerri, played by Alexa Kenin, who stands out here.
