My Thoughts

I think it was a bit ironic how they were drinking while talking about Seth being a drunk. The girls night out didn't really work but it's nice to see Juila and Sarah spending time together, not sure how long the 'No dating' new years resolution will last with Sarah. Also I can understand Sarah being upset over the whole beer thing in the light of what we now know about Seth but did she really have to get that emotional over it with Zeek?

The bird thing was good and they explained it better than the sex talk but I wonder hasn't Sydney had any pets before? Finally a Drew story and more than a few words from him. I like how they acted in the car with Sarah giving them the talk.

Haddie hiding the truth from her parents and Alex... don't they know you can't tell a kid they can't do something because they will do it anyway! I can see Adam/Kristina's POV but I think they could handle it better.

The Jabbar messy room was boring at first but had a surprisingly good end, sometimes you have to be the bad guy Crosby.

What is miss was no mention of Camille during the episode, also nothing about Gordon or the company, more to come on that next week I'm sure.
