Wednesday Night Lights: Revenge is sweat
To no one’s surprise, the defending state champs are back in the playoffs. Can the Hoover Bucs win their umpteenth 6A championship, glory and free wings?
What cheerleader can’t spell or work a dictionary? Whose dad is a miserable camera-hogging drunk? And who really really really wants it more? These questions and more, on the next “Soap,” er, “Two-a-Days.”
Eyes front, mister! Alex goes to Hooters, but only for the articles.
Highlights from episode 6 of the MTV reality series …
Highlight reel: Whew, before the opening credits, Alex catches us up: Hoover won its last regular season games and is in the playoffs. He and Kristin are back together. The season is tearing up our fave players. And Repete’s big mouth earns the ire of the coaching staff. Oh, and the first round opponent is Tuscaloosa County, who humiliated the Bucs earlier in the season.
See what happens when you don’t get a full (TV) season? Too much drama in the first 60 seconds.
Humble pie: Coach Propst calls Repete into his office to warn him on too much trash talking. It seems the team comedian isn’t earning any laughs with his taunting of the losing teams or cheerleaders. Yes, Coach Egotrip is giving a lesson in humility.
What is this, Bizarro World? Ahem, Coach Propst, sir, it ain’t braggin’ if you can back it up.
The ol’ college try: During a completely casual and unstaged dinner, Alex’s parents ask if any colleges have sent by an armored truck to drop off piles of cash. Because, no pressure, they can’t afford to send him without a football (or possibly baseball) scholarship. Pass the guilt, please.
Go teem go: The cherleeders paynt sines in the lunchrom for the big gamme verses the Wildkats. But they arin’t sure how to spel “Revenje is swete.” But that’z y pensuls have erasurs, rite?
Shout outings: Max visits Healthsouth to make sure his ribs can withstand some more pounding. Repete visits his old hood to get real. And Alex goes to Hooters with his pals.
Repete and his dad “Pete.” One trash-talks, the other’s just trashed.
A dish best served cold: The Bucs destroy Tuscaloosa County in style. Alex makes a play. Repete makes a play. Ross pulls off a trick play. And Coach is happy. The final … 42-8.
During Repete’s TV interview, his dad Dwarn “Pete” Smith slips in to steal the spotlight. “I could smell the alcohol on the breath,” Repete says. Pete had the game ball, presumably because he thought it was filled with whiskey. Whiskey and a chance to bask in reflected glory.
“Two-a-Days” airs at 9:30 p.m. Wednesdays on MTV, repeating throughout the week and available for free online.
Next episode: What can Kristin be thankful for? Well, how about that two-timing turkey Alex …
