  • This show was so refreshing at first - good people, good story line - intense family relations - so much potential - but then . . . . TL

    I read about this show before it began and was eager for it to start - even telling my friends about - but to my dismay it is becoming a has-been - can't depend it to be on regularly and when it is - it is often a disappointment - I loved it so at first - it had so much going for it - it is as if the producers started something they didn't have the energy to hang in with - I will continue to follow it for awhile - as I believe it can still be revived - :(((

  • Not the best episode...

    I'm really not seeing the 'meant to be' part to the Sarah/Luc relationship. I actually find the storyline a bit stupid and am glad he got a green card and it's finally over. While Sarah was quite funny throughout it was pretty predictable that she wouldn't be pregnant just as Luc declared he wanted a family...I think they'll have to develop this relationship more before I jump on the 'ship'.

    Kevin was so moany and whiney in this episode...that kinda ruined their storyline really. Justin going back to war - haven't we seen stuff like this before?

    My favourite part of the episode was Nora's mother coming to town and being ill. It was funny but kind of sad at the same time. Well written.

    Otherwise I wasn't a huge fan of 'Where There's Smoke...' I enjoyed it but not as much as the past few episodes...moreless

Rachel thinks that she maybe pregnant and soon everyone finds out but it is only a false alarm. As the episode ends and we see her packing up al of Luc's things, we see that he has finally got his green card and will be staying. Kevin and Scotty wait to find out if Michelle is pregnant and are extremely happen when they learn that she is. Justin seems to be having doubts over his future and maybe thinking about going back to the Army. As the episode ends we see Robert going for that job again and accepting, but what job is it?moreless
