Hell No We Won't Go: When Sitcoms Go Activist
In this episode, Pete and Mary Alice learn how it was in the sixties by way of TV shows from the 80s and 90s as they watch three episodes of classic TV in which characters decide to become activists! At the head of the class is, well Head of The Class, in which Dennis heeds Mr. Moore's call to do something about school lunches, rather than just complaining about them. In the process we get some actual good info about the role of school lunches in lower-income communities. Then, Phil and Vivian's old pal from their activist days inspires Will (or gets him all hype) to stand up to injustice when his school trip to see a Mapplethorpe exhibit (?!) gets a teacher fired. This episode is like an entertaining history lesson where the elder characters drop names like Cleveland Browns wide receivers drop passes. Bringing up the rear is Saved by the Bell, in which Jessie suddenly decides that stopping a delivery of styrofoam cups are is going to save the environment and it's all she can think about for one day. This episode has no redeeming qualities. You're not surprised! Head of the Class Season 2 Episode 4: "Child of the 60s" The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Season 2 Episode 2: "Those Were the Days" Saved by the Bell Season 3 Episodes 23: "Cut Day"

The Collar Pull: Episodes that Make Us Really Uncomfortable
Starring Pete and Mary Alice In this episode, Pete and Mary Alice really test their tolerance for humans being awful to humans in this edition in which we feature episodes that make us uncomfortable. We lead off with Full House, where Joey buys DJ a stolen car for her birthday and the gang get him out of trouble by mocking his superhuman level of childlike innocence. Then, on a poorly-lit episode of Saved by the Bell, the gang lead by Zack do the thing where you completely forget who your friends are because some fast-talking city slicker comes to town, only your friends are your principal and the fast-talking city slicker is your principal's brother. We conclude with the worst thing Will has ever done on an episode of Fresh Prince starring Ms. Kim Fields. Shift in your seat, try to back out of the room, and avoid eye contact by pretending to text someone! We're getting uncomfortable! Full House Season 6 Episode 20: "Grand Gift Auto" Saved by the Bell Season 2 Episodes 15: "The Fabulous Belding Brothers" The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Season 3 Episode 17: "Best Laid Plans"
