The One With The Surfing...
20 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoy this episode. It's not the best, but it is definitely not the worst. I do like the introduction to Dylan McKay, though.

In this episode, Brandon meets a new friend. Surfer Dylan McKay who is a mysterious loner, who lives in a fancy hotel suite, since his Dad is rich and all he does is basically hang out at the beach. He invites Brandon to go surfing with him, and Brandon takes him up on his offer. But when a girl gets drunk, goes surfing and almost drowns, Brandon must save her. Meanwhile, Brenda feels like she's poor after getting to know Kelly and Donna more. And Steve tries to befriend David after mistaking him, thinking he had a Dad who was a famous, wealthy TV show producer.

Overall, I give this episode a 6 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Good.
