Yeah TVCH posters said the TV episode was ultra sanitized, and ITA based on what I read.
I think one piece missing from most of the ranting I've read is how this situation is actually the fallout from bullying. Most research shows that bullied people often react with their own aggressive bullying. And Mark was right, in the DR, when he alluded to the idea that the bullying can only happen (and intensify) when the bystanders allow it.
I know that most people are saying there is bullying every summer, but with the possible exception of Evel Dick, not at this mob mentality level. Ugh.
It pisses me off that they're making me feel sympathetic towards Jody. :P
