A Nice Twist At The End Saves The Episode
13 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Eddie comes home from school dejected because the other kids had taunted him for being so slow of foot. "Leadfoot" is their description of him. So, dear old dad is going to coach him, starting tomorrow, and turn him into a track star. At least, that's his intention.

You know Herman can't do much right. In fact, in this case, the longer he coaches Eddie, the worse the little guy gets. Enter Grandpa with a familiar solution: a magic pill.....to make Eddie a track star.

There is an interesting twist at the end of this story regarding those pills and Herman's track coaching. Overall, there aren't a lot of laughs in this one, but it's pleasant enough with a nice, feel-good ending.
