April Is the Cruelest Month (#1.18)
26 October 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is a bit different than all the others. It has this mystery part to it where Brandon thinks the tennis star of his school wants to kill his father and tries to investigate it. It is kind of fun to watch and they used some elements from horror movies in the dream that Brandon has. I especially liked to see Matthew Perry in his pre Friends years, he doesn't seem as good as he was later, but it is very entertaining. And there is another very familiar face, Nicolas Coaster, who was at that time a major character in Santa Barbara.

Besides that they get their SATs back and now Donna has her first big problem. But turns out that she has a learning disability. Not very realistic I must say, they would have noticed it before SATs, she sure has written some tests before that
