Be careful something can strike from the sky and bring cruel fate!
4 March 2019 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This "AS" episode 2 from season one of the "NBC" Sunday night hit called "The Main Attraction" was memorable funny and clever proving that in life you never know what can strike and change things! It's set in sunny L.A. and it involves a hunk and cocky snob like all state male high school kid named Brad Bender, all Brad has to do is score the Homecoming queen and be named king to make his high school years complete. However big changes come for this stud as he said it only god can stop him. As when a meteorite hits unexpected life is changed in a sticky and magnetic kind of way! It's a little silly yet still the episode is memorable and fun proving that fate and unexpected science can change the way of life for some.
