  • Did she or didn't she? Did he or didn't he? Will he or won't he? Will they or won't they? Asked and most are answered.

    Okay, so what are the answers? This is the second time in the series that Amy refers to an acid trip. The first time was when her ex-husband plans to marry his new girl friend. So, did Amy do acid? She denies it to Maxie, but...



    Did Jared die? Nope, he just flew back home.



    Will Vincent move to San Francisco with Carol? She says that she is the world's most dominating woman. She does not know Amy, does she? Makes you wonder if maybe that was one of the reasons that he left the show...I mean move to the other side of the country.



    Will Peter and Gillian take Ned back? Sure, Gillian needs a little encouragement, but Peter (Ned) wins out.



    What a great episode! Oh, there is a bit of fun. There is Nellie the cow....moreless
  • This is why I love Judging Amy so much...

    I feel in love with this series from the start, with the dynamic duo that Maxine and Amy make. They have such a, well, complicated realtionship that is almost seems unreal. Actually in every aspect they are just what a normal mother/daughter are. This series in whole are worth watching because they have a great tempo, always something happening. This episode it the very top of "something happening".



    Lots and lots of things we have here - Maxine/Jared relationship, Carol/Vincent too and Peter/Gillian. It's all about the love folks and it's done so prefectly and so realisticly that it had me in tears by the end of the episode. Dido and her "Thank you" only brought more emotions to the final minutes and I must say thank you to whomever chose that song.



    Wondeful, wonderful episode that makes us think about life and thank we are alive.moreless
