I think the last 2 eps "Stanley" and "Ababd" were much better than the previous eps. They had humor in them and were much closer to the typical 16year old life than the earlier eps. Getting in BIG trouble for taking the car w/o permission is something every guy has done, I did anyway. The class trip was also funny & something most kids can relarte to. Typical kids do not relate to a teenager being abandoned by his prostitute "mother" or by a girl geing kept doped up by her mom so she doesn't have to deal with the kid. The events in those 2 eps happen but not in most kids actual experiences. The last 2 eps have been more typical of real kids lives.
Hey how is it that Chris is suddenly NOT homeless anymore? They haven't explained that.
