  • Sharon's dad makes everyone rethink their positions in life.

    9.5
    Because Sharon's dad has a heart attack, Sharon stays over the Chase's until he gets better. This forced actions makes Angela think about her relationship with Sharon, but concludes that she just couldn't bring herself to comfort Sharon. Sharon's boyfriend is strangely very nonsupporting of her and she ends up taking comfort in Brian. Yay for Brian, about time he got some action.



    The older people have a strong roll in this ep. Angela's dad goes all weird and i'm left feeling annoyed with him... it's ok to be depressed but don't be a poo face about it. I thought it was weird that the Chase's were more upset over Sharon's father than Sharon and her mother were... but it later hit both of them i guess. I liked how Rayanne bonded a little with Sharon in this ep, if they just all became good friends, they would be come some formidable supergroup. And near the end of the episode Sharon gets angry at Angela for not seeing that Brian is in love with her, but she doesn't believe it. I felt bad for Brian, poor Bri. I can't really explain this episode coherently for some reason, it was just really good. It was great. except for Angela's dad, he was annoying.moreless

    • Angela: There are so many different ways to be connected to people. There are the people you feel this unspoken connection to, even though there's not even a word for it. There's the people who you've known forever who know you in this way that other people can't because they've seen you change. They've let you change.
