SBTB 03.24 - Home for Christmas: Part 2

I don't know about you, but I am offended - offended! - at the performance of "A Christmas Carol." That was the worst fake product placement I have ever seen. The story made absolutely no sense with it! Scrooge lauds Moody's store, and then doesn't know where his own dapper duds come from? And Slater's accent was atrocious. And was Mr. Moody really happy that his store was called the perfect place to shop for misers? It all just made little sense.
And here. Lisa kisses Screech in the last episode. Now she's undressing him. What is going on in this show?

We have to move on to the guest stars, because I could just harp on this episode for days.

Stephen Mendel
This must have been quite the catch for SBTB. Stephen Mendel plays Frank, the down-on-his-luck father who has no home. He had a lengthy role on "Night Heat" in which he played Lieutenant Freddie Carson. He brought some experience to this young cast. And then this episode happened and he floundered. His longest gig after this was as the voice of Splinter in one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons.

His daughter seems to have faired better.
Jennifer McComb
Laura is played by Jennifer McComb. Jennifer is the sister of Heather McComb and the two worked on the TV series "The Outsiders." The sisters also acted in different episodes of "Cracker: Mind Over Murder." Why do I mention these curiosities? Well, these are about the only things that make her stand out. She was a model in "Zoolander." She had parts in other movies, but nothing really giving her staying power.

Bummer. That's how this ends. Meh.
