The One With The Caller...
1 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this episode. It has a very powerful storyline involving rape and it really gets you thinking. By the end of it, you're just glad it wasn't based on a true story.

In this episode, Brenda goes to help Andrea at the volunteer help-line and ends up answering a call, when she shouldn't be. It's a young girl in crisis who has been raped and is very scared. The girl only trusts Brenda, which means Brenda has to talk to her after everyone at the help-line realizes that she answered a call without being properly prepared or given permission. By the end of the episode, Brenda finds the girl who has been attacked by several guys on the football team, and they get arrested.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
