Default Joanie's attacker

They aired Kiss Me Teach and I was wondering, can you see Frankie, the guy who attempted to assault Joanie still go after her after he gets scared off by the Fonz?

In retrospect, I really don't think that this episode has aged well. I mean, to put it in another way, I love how we have to know for sure that this kid is a bad guy because they have to play really, really ominous music whenever he's showing his interest in Joanie. And I really don't understand why Joanie can't become a teacher at Jefferson instead of that ghetto school (which seems to be straight out of every single cliched inspirational teacher movie, e.g. Stand and Deliver, To Sir w/ Love, The Blackboard Jungle, Dangerous Minds, Lean on Me, etc.). And how exactly did this guy find out where Joanie lived?

I pretty much hated this episode, and the other "School Dazed" episode where Joanie was trying to help out her drugged out student. Rape and drug abuse are not topics I want to see on "HAPPY Days" or other sitcoms. I understand the "All In the Family" attempt to be groundbreaking or something, but it just struck me as grasping for ideas and way too serious for a sitcom where we go to ESCAPE that sort of thing.

Default the show was just trying to grow up

a show runs for 11 years the did stories about just about everything so in keeping an intreats up they moved on to some more grown up topics. The people that watched that show from the start were not kids anymore so the show grew with the viewers nothing wrong with that.at least that show wasn't squeaky clean through and through like the brady bunch.What would you rather have SIT ON IT.The characters grew up and so did the stories.i applaud that.
