    Every series has a clunker, and I think this was one of those times. Now this episode wasn't completely awful or unbearable to watch but it simply just did not feel like I was watching Grounded for Life. The story telling was weak, and there really wasn't much of a story to tell.



    Eddie and his sexual adventures was entertaining but not the funniest thing on television. Basically Claudia is talking about a breakup with a friend which results in them getting drunk and talking about sex, meanwhile the rest of the family stays in the living room recalling the time when Eddie faked his death. This episode also managed to toy with our emotions a bit, which I don't think is suitable for Grounded for Life. I wouldn't want this show to have any kind of emotion, maybe once in a blue moon, but it usually doesn't work with these very funny characters. Overall not the best episode of Grounded for Life, but it wasn't an awful episode either. It just felt... off, is all.moreless
