Storyline

Lindsay volunteers to help Daniel pass a do-or-die algebra test; after he flakes out on the studying, he figures out how to get her to help him cheat.

Trivia

Linda Cardellini spitting when she bursts out laughing at the end was accidental. Creator Paul Feig says he likes to use those kind of moments because they're humanizing. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Neil, Bill and Sam are eating in the cafeteria, Neil asks if "anyone saw Dukes of Hazzard last night?" Dukes of Hazzard aired on Friday nights, so the next day would be Saturday and there would be no school. See more »

"Are we gonna go to Hell for this? I don't wanna go to Hell."
24 October 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

'Tests and Breasts' is stacked with character moments, whether it's Daniel cheating his way through a math test or the geeks watching a porno for sex ed. We've all been through that roller-coaster portion of health class, and Sam's increasing discomfort . . . well, who among us couldn't relate to that? It gives Tom Wilson room to shine as Coach Fredricks, a role that goes from jerk to thoughtful teacher in the space of an episode.

It's also a showcase for James Franco, bringing charm and confidence to a loser like Daniel. The rising tension in the counselor's office at episode's end yields one of the show's best moments. Backed against a wall, sometimes all you can do is just break into laughter.

8/10
