  • A great way to open up the show!

    It really was a great way to open up the school! They may have overdone the funny, but I don't mind!

    1) I liked how they opened it! And when I say that, I mean I liked how this episode opened up the series. It had a good plot dealing with many things that fathers would go through nowadays, teenage boys and their video game obbsession, girls and not feeling pretty, it was enjoyable!
    2) Through the roof funny! They over did the funny on this, but I don't mind!
    3) The problem with beginning a new show, comic strip, etc. is that the writers can write themselves into corners with character personality traits. But they established the characters perfectly well, they didn't run into any corners. If that makes sense to anyone else. XD

    Overall, fantastic opening episode!
