What You Need To Know:

“Bullying” is a troubling MR. IGLESIAS episode that promotes sexually aggressive behavior in adolescence. The episode follows a student named Lorenzo, who’s developed a paranoia of attending school because a girl he likes is a bully, and he doesn’t know how to talk to her. Lorenzo then goes to Gabe who gives him flirting advice after consulting with Paula and Carlos. Much to Carlos’s chagrin, Lorenzo begins to date the girl.

“Bullying” is an episode where bullying in school is addressed but not handled well by any means. The obvious promotion of female dominance over a male is problematic to say the least and something to demand caution for this episode. MOVIEGUIDE® would say this episode is excessive and not worth the viewer’s time.
