My Thoughts

I wish they would lay off the know Max is different lets tease he themes. This week Kristina over reacts then steps in when she had enough. I'm just grateful Max didn't know what was happening and he seemed to be coping well with returning to a main stream school. The whole Justin Beaver hair-do and Adam's "abort abort!" were nice touches though.

Sarah grounding Drew over his report card then sneaking out to be with Amy, god only knows what she'll do if they go beyond second base. It is nice that Drew is still seeing Amber outside family gatherings, by the way why is she's still smoking? I don't think her advice was very good. It was nice to see Sarah talking to Mark about the situation and Camille speaking her mind on being used probably pushed her to go and talk to Drew. I'm sure they can work out a balance, as Drew said he is not Amber.

Rachel, we all knew she could be trouble for the Braverman guys. Flirting with Crosby and then kissing Adam, things looked awkward in the last scene. It was good that the studio is a success but I'm not sure what to think about the cross promotions, Cee Lo Green a few weeks ago and not the NBC green week with Arty Party laying down some green tracks.

Weird how we never heard about the Braverman Charade Night before this week, or have I forgot something? It was cute to see Drew and Amy sneaking out. But the biggest thing to come out of the night was Sydney not being a very good loser. And her parents teaching her some touch love. Also seems to be the theme with them they found a lighter side when finding her out cold on her bed room floor. As a side note is was fun how Zeek ran to their house in the morning only to ask Julia for a lift back home.

One last thing, when Mark talked to Sarah about Drew and it being their first fight.
