Trivia

When Lindsey, Nick and Daniel go to get fake id's, Tobey calls Daniel, who's wearing a black stocking cap, 'McMurphy', as a reference to Jack Nicholson's character in One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. It's the same style of cap that Nicholson wore in the film. See more »

Goofs

Mr. Rosso is seen playing a Yamaha DX-7 digital synthesizer, which was first released in 1984. As often seen in early 1980s MTV music videos, the manufacturer's name has been painted over, to avoid copyright infringement. See more »

New kid in town
24 October 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

People like Maureen don't come along every day (never). Pretty, down- to-earth and willing to hang with the geeks. Suddenly, Sam, Neil and Bill have an air of legitimacy in the halls of McKinley, and just as sudden is the profound need to hold onto something precious before the cool kids get ahold of her.

It's that sincerity that lends 'Carded and Discarded' its lasting sweetness, but this also has plenty of understated humor. Not to mention the excellent guest cast and customarily superb soundtrack. This is up there with the best of 'em.

9/10
