    So was that it for this show? A Mother's Day episode and quietly fade away?


    I personally hope we get a couple more substantive episodes that give us a reason to await any possible return. It's a quirky little show but I'm not sure where they can go with it. I had little interest in Tessa's maternal angst thing and the surrogate angle seems like it was a one-episode joke that came to visit and wouldn't leave. Trying to turn George/Dallas into Ross/Rachel in the 'burbs won't keep people tuning in by the millions. Eden is a visual reminder that we've seen the whole Clueless-SquarePegs high school thing before.

    It was so obvious a couple of episodes back that it was going to be Lisa's tall jerky brother who was the adoptee. Now what? Lisa and Malik are the most appealing characters right now but you can't really hang the show from their shoulders like a macramé overcoat. Or can you?
