My Thoughts

Adam "Get it off, get it off!"

The Haddie story line was okay but yes the protective dad bit is getting old as is "You live under my roof..." we all knows what happens next, they end up moving out! But I did love the bit where Haddie took the bra off in front of her dad and Drew and then left to making-out with Steve on his bed. I'm not a big fan of Steve!

Finally Crosby and Jasmine had a date, then more. I guess since they have a kid they can skip the whole 3 day rule before sleeping together. Jabbar was cute not being able to go at Julia's.

Kristina was great at work but in the last 15 or 20 years things have moved on with the Tweets and such but she still knows her stuff, she just need to get more tech savvy and will do fine, I'm glade she's going to stick with it.

Julia trying to make a point, it might have been over the top but Sydney caved in the end.

Nice to see Drew again but why is it we got nothing of Zeek and Camille again? Okay back to Drew, I don't get it one episode they are bitting each others heads off and then the next Amber is helping Drew pick out clothes for the dance? Not a fan of the talking over each other, yes it's normal but hard to follow or understand what each is saying.

OMG the oldies dancing, poor Drew just wanted some help, I know he's closer to Adam but why not go to Joel or Crosby, being a 'party guy' I'm sure Crosby can show him some moves. BTW Love seeing Lauren dance. Also great girls talk again and this time it wasn't even dirty!

Jim, well what can I say, I'm a fan of Mike O'Malley, nice scenes with Sarah and Amber. Sarah is his muse, love that Amber worked out what Jim was on about in the poems and the talk before about meeting Drew (Remember in the Pilot in the kitchen.) I like the talk in the car and how she is still friends with Jim maybe not her soul mate but still nice. BTW you can tell that Nissan is a sponsor of the show, with them clearly showing the car badge before tilting up and focusing on Sarah and Amber. This after the road trip with Zeek and Adam last week. The kitchen scene was nice with Amber encouraging Sarah to go back to school.

Over all another great episode but with only 4 more to go the season seems way too short, good thing they are renewed and will have 22 from next fall.
