ON ABC'S "COMPLETE SAVAGES"
Mel Gibson Directed This Episode in Addition to the Pilot
"Tutoring" - It's progress report time at school, and while the Savage boys - with the exception of Sam - are far from straight A students, Nick can't ignore the fact that Chris is failing five classes this year. The greatest shock is that studious Sam is failing a class, and when the guys find out it's gym, he becomes the butt of everyone's humor in this jock-filled household.
