  • Ok ladies and gents. I don’t want to sound like a shallow Shelley here but . . .

    Ok ladies and gents. I don’t want to sound like a shallow Shelley here but . . . couldn’t they find an actress less ugly for Lynn? I mean I am SORRY but this lady is VERY ugly and she looks 10 years older than Jack! The way she looks she could be his young mother but NO way in Hell his childhood sweetheart! I have no problem with the storyline . . . I understand they need to create this drama thingy and all . . . but seriously this poor woman is NO competition to the blondie! They should have found someone at least his age. It is all a matter of taste I guess but I just cannot see how someone might think that this woman fits this part. It just grosses me out to see them kissing and stuff . . . it is a bit ewwwww! I mean apart from the “evil eyes” and the whole “Satan thing” she looks pretty much like my avatar! LOL Ok, go ahead and call me shallow now. It’s my opinion! ;)moreless
  • I feel so bad for poor Marin.

    When you'd think that Marin and Jack finally get together.. ohh man, are you wrong!! The love triangle.. the writers just couldnt resist the ideo of bringing Lynn back. But I dont mind, i cant wait to see what happens next. I do think that Marin should be worried about her relationship with Jack. Theresa decided that she wanted Ben back. And of course, she just has to clap her fingers, and they are back together. The whole ring thing was a little over the top, but at least she cares about it, which is always a good sign.

    Buzz had an aya surgery, Patrick wants to propose with a ring in the pie, and of course, Jane has her moments with Plowguy, too.

    Overall, it was a good episode.moreless
  • Just about everyone has a moment in this episode.

    Jane and plowguy – I think if I was him I would have left – but I’m glad he hung out until she came to her senses and realized she didn’t need to hide her back-country boytoy! I’m also happy to see it will most likely be cultivated into something more than a fling, which I think her wanting him at the party suggested!

    Patrick and Annie – they are both so delicate emotionally that they’re afraid to be hurt. But they are definitely meant to be together – even if they don’t realize it yet! The ring in the pie was very cute.

    Buzz and Mai – didn’t she surprise me! I know she loves him, but she really put on the dawg for him in this episode (even though she says she won’t give in to being a slave wife and get him a beer! Her statement to him that she didn’t want to change their relationship because she is so happy about the direction they are headed – awesome! If only every couple could be that comfortable together.

    Ben and Theresa – hmmm, I wonder. She seems a little silly about the whole thing. The ring? What was that about? It’s as if she thinks just because she has changed her mind about things that it’s just expected that he will too. This sort of change requires a lot of communication – not just making out and putting your ring back on. I hope Sara comes back – just to shake things up!

    And of course, Marin, Jack, Lynn. I have no idea why Marin is worried – Jack obviously loves her and declared as much on her voicemail – that doesn’t change just because an ex-girlfriend shows up pregnant. Why in the world would he decide to take her back and raise some other guy’s baby? I don’t think it will happen – but it will make for some interesting situations. Can’t wait to see what happens next.moreless
  • I am so glad this is back!

    I finally got to watch a whole episode i of this. I love the new time slot!!

    I didn't really get the whole Lynn thing. Why should her situation be a road block for Jack & Marin? Did not make a lot of sense to me, but should be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Buzz & his wife were an adorable side story! So cute!!

    Patrick & Annie broke my heart, but I have faith they will find their way back to each other. I am not sure how I feel about Ben & Theresa. She was really mean to him before & I really liked him with Sarah. But I wonder what it will be like When & if Sarah returns.

    I did want to tell Ben to shut up when he was talking to jack about why Lynn was back:)

    I noticed the show was Finally up in the ratings due to the new time slot. I kno we get a full season of this one,but I am praying for another season as well:)moreless
  • Interesting happenings in Elmo!

    I liked this episode, but in some ways I am concerned about it. The episode almost had the feel of an end of season cliff-hanger type episode. I really hope this is not the case, especially given the fact that we don't know if MIT will be renewed (one can only hope) or not.

    Patrick and Annie are destined to be together. This fight is a bump in the road that I believe adds some spice to the proceedings. I would like to see Annie go back to New York and have Patrick follow her, I think that would be a great story line.

    Marin and Jake, what can you say. I know in my heart they will end up together, but the path is going to be a rocky one.

    I just really like this show and look forward to the ongoing saga of Elmo!moreless
