  • brothers part two

    In continuation to the season premiere, what this episode felt as was "Brothers" Part Two, since it dealt with the same issue. This episode was a bit better, I felt as though it was more emotional, and it was just more enjoyable to watch in general, both episodes were good regardless.

    What definitely was fun to watch about this episode was the different style this episode had. In documentary format, Cory does a film for his class, and films Shawn, Eric, and Shawn living together. What's starts out as a fun video project turns out to be more serious than that, when Shawn & Jack have serious problems. Topanga sees it, but Cory can't since he's behind the camera. It turns out Shawn always wanted a brother and he always felt as though Jack was ashamed of him when he never answered any of his letters. When it turns out Jack never receive his letters, things are resolved in the end. The thing I love about this show, is that things can be so emotional and moving one moment, but then just make you laugh out loud the next. This episode was a perfect example of that.
