  • The sisters discover that their father wants to move 4 hours away with her new wife to Cape Cod.

    This episode was one part of a two hour season finale. Watching it I had a feel of bitter sweet excitement. The actors and storyline have finally fallen into a very comfortable place. I think that the girls are work extremely well off of eachother and it would be a shame to lose the show because of poor ratings. Related has so much potenial for a second season.
  • It's always nice to see the episodes focused on the family.

    I enjoyed this episode. I like it when the characters on a show go away somewhere. Not enough shows do that these days.

    I can't believe that Marjee even asked Anne if Jason could move in with them. It was crowded enough with just Anne and Marjee, add Jason, with whom she knows Anne doesn't like, and it's a nightmare. That said, Anne's answer of, "I guess so.", did seem like permission for him to move in.

    Rose should not have gone to Joel's party. She should have found some way to excuse herself from going. She put herself in the position to get drunk and kiss Joel. She should not have kissed him and she should have kept her distance. Although, it was very comical to watch Rose drunk. :)

    It was great that Ginnie and Bob got to get away and spend some time together. It is so incredibly hard to watch them being soo distant with one another.

    Patrick, Patrick, Patrick...he's been nothing but trouble to the girls. I understand why Joe wants to move. He wants to retire and relax now. However, I don't think moving would have come up if it weren't for Patrick. I guess I understand both of their sides, Patrick and the sisters. Doesn't make it any easier. ;)moreless
  • What can I say, it was funny and sad.

    I really enjoyed this episode. It had funny moments like when Rose gets drunk and keep doing very funny things. They all met up at the cape. Not much to say about this episode. I think it was a filler, which is sad but oh well, there was the series final right after it.
