  • A party at Lindsey's house

    A nice second episode of this fabulous show, it sometimes felt to go on to slow but still managed to impress and to give a few laughs while developing the characters. Problem is, parties never make fantastic episodes. The party went on tooo long.

    The episode is about Lindsey’s parents going out and leaving the house behind. Lindsey tells her friends and they immediately want to have a party at her house, she’s afraid of not being accepted so she says yes.

    In the party plenty of characters develop or change a bit.
    Sam and his buds change the beer for fake beer that doesn’t have alcohol. it seems like Sam gets more confident through the episode and he even makes a joke around Cindy and her cousin and makes them laugh.

    Neal in this episode is also pretty confident and he tells Lindsey that he had a crush on her since 5th grade. He’s also the one who comforts her and helps her to get out of her nightmare party.

    Bill in this episode is the funniest, he watches Dallas and is the only one who truly gets drunk.

    the others all drink and most of them believe they are really drunk. Daniel sort of flirts with Lindsey on and off and she develops a crush on him but then she finds him kissing with Kim on her bed. That completely ruins everything for her and she goes outside where Nick holds her and tries to take off her bra which hurts her even more.

    The good thing about this episode is that it went deeper into the main characters even though the party storyline wasn’t that fantastic. The episode succeeded to continue the show and the main storylines.
