  • Dust in the Wind

    That 70s Show crossover? I could tell the Carsey-Werner team really had fun with this episode what with Ashton Kutcher guest starring. Danny Masterson had already guest starred but they didn't make his appearance as special as this. We even got a water tower and Ashton Kutcher's character almost falling off of it. If you watch That 70s Show, I'm sure you appreciated the episode.

    Even though this episode had some crazy antics that included switching someone's ashes with coffee grinds, and dispersing them off a water tower, it still was quite sad. Scott had died young and the final scenes were heartbreaking.

    Lilly' story line was definitely a lighter side of things. So in the last episode she made out with Brad, and now she's making out with her cousin? And she has a boyfriend. Something is telling me things with Dean aren't going very smoothly. The whole blood-relation, then by marriage, and the cousin being married were all great tie-ins that I definitely enjoyed. Great penultimate episode.moreless
  • Cousin Scott is dead, now Sean must make the promise he once did to him.

    This episode is really cool, I think that this episode was really great beacause Sean and Claudia replace dead cousin Scott's ashes into the wind in order to honor the way that Scott grew himself up with adrenaline and just believing that everything is cool, like jumping from a tower, like rounding up in a bycicle full of flames, and other intense things that Sean was never able to do, so all the family goes to the funeral in order to honored his memory, but they have replace the ashes with coffee, so they must fake in the funeral that the ashes are in fact in there, and later when Walt finds out they get themselves into a big trouble, when Eddie finds the real ashes and they are unable to do it, as they think that they have not been able to do what their cousing ask them for, and later that causes Walt to grew angry on them. And then he is finally the one who throws the ashes from the water tower. While Lily kisses out with a married guy that turns out to be her cousin, and that makes her to puke and also to wash her kiss, and Henry is just to marveled by that.... this episode was really, really cool!moreless
