Happy Hump Everyone, Angela Bowen here, the host of She's A Small Wonder: A Small Wonder Podcast. Today I'm covering S1E4: The Suitor, which aired on September 28, 1985. In this episode when Jamie's classmate Warren stops by the house, he becomes smitten with Vicky. But when Jamie tries to interfere in the relationship by programming Vicky with insults, Warren's feelings are hurt. This episode was an interesting take on a topic kids today face, bullying. This episode covers nerd and fat shaming. I know it was the 80’s but good grief. My heart goes out to you Warren. You will find love one day and be appreciated for your intelligence. I’m really growing to despise Jamie as a character and we’re only four episodes deep into the series. Join me next time on the podcast for S1E5: Sibling Rivalry, which aired on October 5, 1985. In this episode feeling neglected due to his parents' preoccupation with Vicky, Jamie decides to run away. But when he uses Vicky to avoid contact with his parents, the family gets a scare. Have a great week everyone!
