My Thoughts

Another nice episode.

The Crosby/Jasmine story was a little lacking, nice that Crosby went to Adam and talked about it, funny when he tried to talk to Jabbar's new friend about it. I just thought we'd get more about it but I guess they had a lot to get through again this week.

The Amber stuff was great, Sarah grounding here was understandable and then finding out Kelsey lied to her parents (Nice to see Kate again) The scenes with Sarah and Amber were some of their best, just a shame it's pushing Drew to the sideline. He hasn't has a real story since the screw up with Holly. Also nice to see Sarah talking to her parents about Amber and what to do.

I like that Joel is working but it kinda came out of no where, I know they have been talking about it but still and of course it was going to cause problems. I love how they have twisted the who working parent theme, but with the roles switched. Nice they worked things out in the end but why didn't they just ask Camille or Zeek to help in the first place?

It's weird how we all of a sudden meet more of the T&S staff, just as they are to be fired, I think Adam handled it well in the end. It was fun to see him practice is firing speech for Kristina and Haddie.

Haddie & Camille doing community service was a nice touch and the conflict with Alex was nice to watch, Kristina 'kick him where it counts' lol.

Gordon trying to woo Sarah and them being watched by Camille, Zeek and Amber was a nice touch. I think she's falling for him but as Adam bluntly said, I hope she is careful not to end up as another notch on his head board.

Adam snapping at Sarah was understandable and the whole knocking thing, I know people like that it's really annoying at the best of times. Oh what I don't get is if T&S is on a tight budget then what's with the coffee run, or is that paid for by the people wanting the coffee?

The ending with yet another family gathering and the announcement was great way to round off this weeks show.

Now we have a 2 week wait for the next one.
