EPISODE ONE (9/19/15)

SUMMARY:  The scrappy but terrible debate team led by Mr. Westerburg has a new hope for their upcoming debate with the snooty prep school kids - wealthy new student Kevin. As they prepare for the debate, the kids are distracted by their personal problems. Allison is getting hot 'n' heavy with hunky Isaac, but he insists they keep their relationship a secret. Bethany has come out as gay, but is upset that everybody's so understanding; she wanted to become an outsider and gain catharsis from getting them to accept her how she is. And Mark has a stutter he's dealing with in his own improbable way. But when Kevin deserts the team to transfer to the snooty prep school, all their lack-of-preparation may be for naught.
