Yes, it is a recap show. The really nice thing that the producers did was indicate when new material was shown they had a Charm School shield with 'new material' written on it in the top right hand corner. All recap shows should do this.
Highlight of new material:
Brook peeing on the bus.
Showing how mean and vicious Larissa and Shay were toward Leilene. We saw some on the show itself but these woman especially Larissa was relentless. She was constantly calling Leilene a stripper and a ho in her face, throwing stuff everytime she was in the phone booth making calls to her family, and constantly going right up to Leilene's face and again calling her names. If you don't see it it sounds harmless, but Larissa was out of control and I give tons of kudos to Leilene for not losing it. Larissa came across as psychotic and very scary. If anyone had been killed in the house I would be pointing the finger at Larissa. She would stick a shive (prison made knife) in your back and think nothing of it and blame it all on you.
Brooke was also no friend to Leilene. Leilene does need a backbone and must learn to respect herself cause at the moment all these women think she is dumb as dirt and needs to be tromped on.
