    A rather enjoyable episode of Grounded for Life tonight, not the best episode of the series, but memorable to say the least. We've got our typical "Lilly freaking out over nothing" storyline, and the family trying to work out the problem. This show uses this formula for years to come, but it never gets old with original plots and great writing.



    Sean & Claudia are definitely one of the best sitcom parents of all time, and it shows as early as season one. From Claudia urging Sean to get the guitar instead of the water heater to Claudia always getting turned on every time he plays, their just a hilarious TV couple, and they're definitely the reason this show ran on as long as it did.



    That and the unique way of telling a story which is done in just about every episode. Lilly needs money for a ski trip, but Sean & Claudia spend inheritance money on a guitar, Lilly ends up getting what she wants in the end. The story unfolded amazingly here, and Grounded for Life definitely did not disappoint.



    Good episode of Grounded for Life, will not forget this one.moreless
