    Initially this show seemed to be a cliqued attempt at following in the shoes of front running teen-dramas, with the only new twist thrown into the mix was the creative humor and constant satire of popular culture. Finally taking a step away from the trite madness that is Sam McPherson and Brooke McQueen, since the start of the season the writers took a chance with the character that seemed to be the "blah" all-American football hero and introduced a storyline where he stars in the school musical. At first it seemed that this issue was left behind, however after several episodes they finally return to this concept in an episode that stands out as one of the best this series has to offer. While it seems overdone that Josh would have major issues stemming from his father's commanding role in his life, the final scene with these two characters seems sincere and hardly forced. From a TV show where very little is expected, this episode hits you with a BANG!moreless
