Default The episode "A Stepping Stone"...

Not an episode I care to watch. I finally seen it last night since there was nothing else to watch. I don't care for this episode because it is boring and also because I really hate that character Ms. Pruitt. What a prude she was...really, she was a b*tch. What a waste of time having this storyline going on with this character.

I also remember Solomon saying how the Whitley character looked out of place being a stepper since her character was known to not be very good when it came to dancing or I should say "modern dancing".

Also, it dawned on me that the character Charisse (she was one of the steppers, she was light skinned with long hair) also appeared in the movie MASK with Cher. She played the girl who was a prostitute and Cher's character brought her home to her son. When that character spoke in ADW, her voice was so distinct, it caught my attention. I looked at the actress' name in the closing credits and she is Kelly Minter. She is very pretty and has a distinct list of credits:

The only part I liked was the ending, when the girls' danced.

Also, that football player Dwayne was tutoring looked TOO OLD to be a college football player. If he was just a college student, no problem, but it was hard for me to believe he was on the school's team.

What's odd is, he would have been the right age in real life to be a college student at that time. The guy who played "Meat" I believe he died in real life a few years ago.

I believe she was also in that movie "Summer School," with Mark Harmon and Kirstie Alley. She was the token black girl in the class and it was found out that she (her character) was dyslexic.

I don't care for Ms. Pruitt either, but I did like the step routine. Freddie trying hard but not getting the moves reminded me of myself in fifth grade, when I was trying to keep up on the middle school drill team. Whereas Freddie stuck with it and got the moves, I dropped out. I couldn't deal with the "we'll lose if she stays on the team!" comments anymore.
