My Thoughts

Love the teaser with Crosby falling out of Jasmines bedroom window, I know it's a tired cliché but still fun to see. Crosby trying to trick Jabbar into thinking he was sleepwalking, didn't work. Anyone else waiting for the moment Jabbar calls Crosby dad for the first time?

I never liked Steve, it always felt like he was just trying to get into Haddie's pants and tonight's episode shows that. Now he's sweet talking Amber and she's falling for him, with the whole father MS thing and saying he's a virgin. This is not going to end well!

Okay I love it when the 4 siblings get together, without any one else. The scene in the car was great and fighting over the front seat, classic sibling fight! And then the dinner with the parents, how awkward! Didn't think Zeek just leave but as Camille told Sarah it was more than just the money, hope we get to see more in the 3 remaining episodes of the season.

I liked the side store with Max and the 2 other families and how they got treated the same with the second one as they treated the other in the opening but it was nice for them to go back in the end. By the way there was a story about the guy wearing those bike shorts.

The pawn shop laptop thing was a nice surprise and good way to tie in the Zeek stuff and Sarah's computer class but really any computer found there is not going to run Photoshop needed for any computer class, the software would cost much more than the computer unless student discounts apply. Sorry for my geek bable, but really a pawn shop is the last place to by a PC if you don't know what you're looking for. Nice to see Drew again, even if it was just a few minutes. The collage was nice in the end, would be nice to hear from who every did that.

Amber working at the golf club thing was weird, not sure about the beer, anyone know the law in CA? And yes Mae looked so pretty this week, apart from the bun or whatever in the first scene.

Julia the soccer coach, (Did Couch/Craig T. Nelson give her tips?) Jabbar was good but yeah why was the goalie just standing there, did Racquel say something? I was hoping to see more there as well. Nice to see the family there, with Zeek now estranged from Camille it might be a while before we see that again.

And what of the missing scenes? First Sarah was mean to be seen in a computer class this week. Second there was meant to be more with Steve and Haddie on the golf course, with the blanket. Seriously how we get some of these scenes on the DVD.

Still another good ep that really needed to be longer to open up some of the scenes more.
