David is delighted by the local scout troop's awe for his badges-attested skills when he joins despite the antiquated statutory ban on gays. Even Brian, who abhors the boyish 'hardships', is delighted by the welcoming atmosphere and camaraderie. Yet David is ratted out to the HQ and officially expelled. Written by KGF Vissers

A swing and a miss
26 June 2014 | by vikmar-37-52605See all my reviews

I do not agree with the policies of the Boy Scouts of America, but the writers of this show should have done 5 minutes of research before attempting to take them to task. Almost everything they showed regarding scouting is incorrect, in a large part because they have confused Boy Scouting with Cub Scouting. This episode used the wrong terminology, had them meeting way too often, and had them doing the wrong things.

A group of Cub Scouts is a Pack, not a Troop. Their leader is a Cubmaster, not a Scoutmaster. The group of boys that David joins is a Wolf Den, run by Den Leaders, not Scoutmasters. Wolf Dens are not allowed to go camping by themselves. Setting traps, building lean-tos, identifying edible plants, and starting fires without matches are not part of Cub Scouting. Cub Scouts do not earn badges for etymology or archery. Archery programs are not permitted at Den and Pack activities. The vehicle that David built in no way resembles a Pinewood Derby car (it's much too wide and the wheels don't move).

If you don't care enough about a topic to read a Wikipedia page, then why write a whole show about it?
