I'll Race To Feel the Wind On My Face
15 June 2006 | by SquirrelBot3000See all my reviews

Brandon's been stuck with the task of putting on the school musical of the renowned "Bye-Bye Greasy". Naturally, everyone wants in on the roles available. Except for McGuirk, that is... until Brendon tells him he can drive his car on-stage for his role-- which turns out to be one of the coach's unfulfilled fantasies-- to drive a car in a building. Through a batch of tryouts, some in the theater, one by bully Shannon who sneaks into Brandon's room to "convince" him he's perfect for the lead role, the cast is assembled. And that's when things go wrong. Shannon's suspended, Paula paints an out-of-season background, and Melissa's screaming for someone to stab her with her Epi-Pen to prevent kiwi poisoning. And that's just getting warmed up.

This episode, next to "The Birthday Party", probably contains Jon McGuirk's most genuine, soul-reaching moment-- performing "I'll Race", trapped behind his car's broken window that won't roll down. The pain of not being heard combined with the genuine gusto he exudes performing it makes for one of the shining moments of Season Four.

Just about every regular gets a moment or two in this episode, and provides an opportunity for a great ensemble chapter in the series.
