  • oops, I may have made an error in another review I wrote before seeing this Episode...

    1.3
    I saw a later show, before seeing this one.



    and I may have written a mistaken review for the later one, being remiss of the facts in this one.



    I may have to go back and change.

    It had to do with Cordelia's appropriateness



    Not that people should be branded with an "S" for having an affair, But I was surprised to learn After the fact that

    Cordelia & Taj were.



    Hope to learn more of the "whys" and "wherefores" before making any final opinions. This show is on shaky ground tho , it's just not

    very respectful to the vocation of counseling, IS it ?moreless

    so all the "important" people are invited to dinner at Taj's home. i thought it was amusing to see how bored everyone was...i'm not sure what james' intentions were with the young girl he was flinging the pea back and forth with. Mina figures out what's going on between her husband and Cordy. i almost fell off the couch when i saw how Taj actually tapped on his glass and treated his wife like a dog...he treats her like that and he cheats on her, and she stays. i think it's comical how all the therapists are having delusions of someone in their life, though it makes me rethink therapy lol. i'm glad Ann brought the eating disorder to attention, though "Happy Helperpants" probably doesn't always have to stick her nose in. i'm sure that can get quite annoying. i loved the storyline of the lesbian couple going through a divorce and a custody battle. i was a bit sad and disappointed at the end of the episode to find out they couldn't try to work things out in their relationship. However, at least they're still going to live in the same home so the child won't have to go through that whole painful ordeal, so that's a plus. at least she'll still have both or her mother's together in a sense.moreless
