My Thoughts

I like that Crosby is still slipping up sometimes and that he's learnt that kids are not a part time job, also that he is getting along with his potentioal mother-in-law Renee. I get the feeling she wants Crosby and Jasmine to get married or something. I also like that he's asking for help or advice from Adam and Gaby.

Finally more of Joel and Zeek, nice scene in the garage/shed, good thing he dropped the magic trick and went for something he knows about. Why does Zeek get all the best line "light your own fart" LOL

Good on Haddie for winning and for her asking Kristina for help, also nice to see Amber in a scene with her, we need more of that.

Poor Drew taking his mothers advice, I hope after the mistake we get more of April, I mean Holly in future episodes. Drew bringing the dad issue up again with his mom, liked how Sarah opened up to him with the story and they made up. Also on Drew find his phone... why not use another phone to call it and just follow the ringing?

Sarah kissing Mike was sweet and then him asking her out, just a pity the date didn't go to plan with Adam and Kristina crashing the party, shame we didn't get more of that, there was another scene in the sides but it was cut. I hope we get a follow up of that next week.

Not much from Max this week but I'm thinking those sticker are turning into bribery system, I guess what ever works?

At the end it was nice to see Jasmine return home, for good and another dinner party but seriously would they be allowed to set off a rocket in a suburban back yard like that? And then it landing where Adam and Kristine snuck off to.

Another good episode, probably the best of the season so far.
