  • Broken hands everywhere.

    This episode is a fantastic one, with the karate and gossip plots both being terrific. Chris and Drew bonding at the end of the episode was a very good moment and while it definitely needed a comedic turn, it didn't end very strongly with Drew breaking Chris' hand, though it does bring up the whole issue of what goes around comes around.

    Tonya gossiping is also a hilarious storyline since it seems so innocent from a 10 year old, some great moments including telling them about the argument and the compromise that Rochelle comes to about gossiping in the hair salon.moreless
  • Some good character development between Drew & Chris

    Drew has always been sort of a background character. He has never had a very active role in this show and in this episode he still is more of a backdrop to Chris' antics, but we at least get a glimpse into what it's like to be Drew. Chris, of course, has always been jealous of his cooler, bigger, tougher older brother. Drew has never seemed to have much going on in his head whatsoever. We've never gotten a good sign of how he feels about Chris or about anything in particular. He's always been contenet to remain aloof to the world of praise that surrounds him. We finally find out, however, that he is just as adoring of Chris as Chris is jealous of him. It was a nice insight into an underused character, though I still wish they would give him a more proactive role in the show.moreless
