Sometimes, I think Aliens in America is a real guilty pleasure. Something that ain't that funny, but keeps you glued to the screen anyway. It's lame, it never reeeeeally makes you laugh out loud, it's a series you wouldn't recommend to your friends. But you watch it anyway every week. This show was touching in the first episode, where Raja and Justin were emotionally trying to adapt to their new family, but it's now totally steered away in the wrong direction.
And this was certainly the case this episode. Justin finally becomes popular with all the unpopular kids when Raja picks Justin as the victim for the school's drunk-driving. Popular kids and unpopular kids forced to work together was one of those plotlines that again, were not that entertaining. Claire and Franny were certainly more amusing. With this whole deal about Franny lying to Claire about having a sex toy, and telling Claire she was in fact the proud owner of a potato masher. Mrs.Lockard indeed received what to her, seemed like a potato masher.
Justin's funeral at first was missing the geeks, the emos, the goths and the stoners, but the story ended with Justin going back to be a sober driver at the other one.
