My Thoughts

The Sarah/Seth/Mark situation is getting interesting, starting with Sarah patching Seth up again and lawing down the law, I thought it was a little easy how he came back to Sarah for help, and money. Even if he didn't ask for it, I thought he had money in the bank? I know Zeek was being protective but Sarah is doing this more for her kids than Seth and it was nice of Joel to step up and defend Sarah's choice to Zeek. Also nice he spoke up about adopting Zoe's unborn baby boy.

Mark has every right to feel uneasy with Seth back in Sarah's life, hope he has nothing to worry about, I'm sure he doesn't. But it wasn't fun for him to find another mans smokes in her bed, then finding out they spent the night together in the same bed. Honesty is always best but too many details can be worse and we all know how that ends in TV land.

Can Drew & Amy get any cuter, like how Amy was making the first move early on, in his room (gotta wonder how long before the grand parents take an interest in this relationship?) Also don't know if I would have ever gone to my sister for that advice about his kiss and girls. Its good they still have a relationship now Amber has moved out but Amber doesn't have much of a story right now, helping Max last week and now Drew, hope she gets more soon.

The Crosby & Adam stuff was great, like the link to them running a lemonade stand as kids. Also kinda strange Adam was the one wanting to push forward with Crosby being the cautious one for a change. Then Crosby snapping at him when things went wrong, the toast was a nice touch as was Crosby coming back to get Adam to help. Even the Cee Lo Green scenes were well placed and not over done but what happened to Mistah Ray?

Even the Haddie & Kristina stuff was nicely done with the college letter, Kristina tired running the house while Adam was out for a few days at the studio. Kristina going up to see Haddie's room with the puppet on her hand and then them in bed resting.

No Jabbar or Jasmine this week. And now ep next week... Also Zeek recording Nora coming home for the first time. Crosby teasing Adam about his music knowledge. The cross promotion with Cee Lo Green fresh from that other NBC show, The Voice. Kristina calling Adam at work and Adam falling asleep with the new baby.

If there was one scene that bugged me it was Sarah going to Julia for help and crying, but it kinda felt like we cut to the scene half way in and missed the start.
