Storyline

Tom-Tom is expelled from college for failing to take makeup exams. Frustrated by the bureaucracy, during which we're given a prescient tech babble about flowcharts and computers, somebody was doing their homework, he quits school to head back home to Chicago. By this point in the series it was becoming apparent that Ted Bessell was stealing the show. Certainly, Glenn Corbett had all the classic leading man requisites, which he would display to good effect in the next decade, but Bessell was clearly the guy who could charm the camera. Dawn Wells shows up again, this time sans her paratrooper boyfriend and is working at the college registrar's office as a key punch operator (remember those) rather than the local newspaper. This one is a showcase for Bessell, who puts on a virtual one man show as he explores his life and we learn about his wealthy, disconnected family. He even does some rare breaking the fourth wall and talking directly to the camera. Again, this is a major departure ... Written by The Mystic Hedgehog
