  • Paul is a disaster that makes me laugh!!

    8.5
    I love how pauls life is on the road of good intention with a sharp dead end at disaster.



    he always messes up. this particular episode involved kerry and bridget partying. when the parentals arrive to find a 'supervised' party that had to be broke up by the police that both kerry and bridget attends, paul sticks his foot in it by saying he would supervise the next party.



    bridget and kerry ofcourse are disgusted with this idea, and i may add i so would be too, seriously your dad at a party who would want that?



    ends up getting out of control - needless to say other parents are angry but paul is known as cool dad. i think he enjoys it but knows it aint right. if you are a cool dad, you aren't a good dad. it seems. personally i disagree. my dad is cool to an extent and he isn't a bad parent.



    anyway quite funny with other parents dishing on him for doing wrong. nice wake up call for paul with thinking thinks like that where easy. isn't he feeling sorry for tommy now?moreless
  • A good episode but its not my favorite.

    In this episode, Paul gives up his house for parties for Bridget and Kerry's friends. He falls asleep at his Ever so safe party and wakes up to find that things went a bit out of control. All the parents are mad at Paul, but all the kids suddenly think he's a "Cool parent." The thing i enjoyed most about this episode though was the thing with the "slipper dad." Basically, Paul was talking to the kids who were teasing Rory at school and the kids noticed he was wearing slippers and called him "Slipper dad". So thats what the whole Slipper dad thing was about, i loved the ending part when Rory dumped a box of slippers on him! Anyways, it was pretty good, but its not all time favorite episode.moreless
