Daniel Desario is shown sitting down and listening to the Black Flag song "Rise Above," and although it was originally recorded earlier to appear on a single, the song was not actually released until December of 1981 on the album "Damaged." Since the single season of the show takes place over the course of the 1980-1981 school year, this album would not have been released until halfway through the next year of school. See more »
This show can be so funny and so touching at the same time
Another excellent episode that turned out better than I remembered. This show can be so funny and so touching at the same time. This episode however was leaning more towards the drama.
We continue Neal's storyline, he gets a dummy to impress girls but is having a big mouth at school and to people in general. He is mad at his dad for cheating on his mom. This episode introduces (sadly for only one episode) Barry. He is Neal's brother, a very nice guy who has a history with Lindsay. They would make a cute couple. Neal insults his dad at the party and tells his mom about the cheating, which turns out that Neal was the last to know of the whole family.
The freaks storyline appeals more to me, it has Daniel breaking up with Kim and posing as a punker dude. Is it weird to completely love the music and his hair/clothing style? Franco is one handsome guy. Of course, the realized that it is not for him and crawls back to Kim crying. I thought it was a cute scene.
All around another strong episode with a very cute ending. I can't believe it's only three more episodes.
