Buddy Elder is an aspiring Olympic high-diving hopeful who has a devastating secret: alcoholism. The social effects of peer pressure are explored as Buddy frequently enjoys long drinking binges with his friends, as are the consequences. His rationale: "All the kids do it." Eventually, Buddy seems to have learned his lesson when he gets a painful reminder that may put a permanent end to his Olympic dreams. Written by Brian Rathjen <>

The Fonz can direct!
20 November 2002 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

One of the several ABC "After School Specials" that Scott Baio acted in is also interesting as it is the directoral debut of Henry (the Fonz) Winkler. This installment deals with peer pressure that all high scool age kids go thru, and Baio handles it well, though at 24 he's a bit old to play a part like this despite his youth ful looks. All of these afterschool specials gave new comers and under employed veteran character actors work, and they were well written, acted and produced.
