Storyline

While Dick and Sally are at Tommy's school to talk about Tommy not fitting in, the teacher asks Sally out for the school dance and a totally swooning Sally says yes. There is however one little problem: Sally can't dance. Meanwhile, the Solomons, lead by Dick and Tommy, are trying to find an ethnic group the Solomons could belong to.

Very Interesting Episode!
15 October 2019 | by gab-14712See all my reviews

"Dick Like Me" is a very interesting episode. It explores the themes of ethnicity, which of course is a very hot topic. I am not sure an episode like this gets made today, but I did think this was a really funny episode. The Solomons are called to Tommy's school to have a conference with Tommy's teacher, Mr. Randell (John D'Aquino) because he believes Tommy does not fit in. At this meeting, Mr. Randell asks Sally out to the school dance. But she does not know how to dance! Meanwhile, the family try to decide which ethnicity they belong in-and they have a hard time doing so.

I thought this episode was well-done considering some of the plotlines. Some quotes are a little risky, and that may be a bit kind. But I did have a fun time watching this episode. At least we learned that Mary Albright is Irish!

My Grade: A-
