  • Great Thanksgiving episode.

    8.8
    This seems like a familiar Thanksgiving episode; one of the tween age kids (Vanessa) decides to become a vegetarian, and the father (Bernie) suffers through a meatless Thanksgiving dinner.



    There's the side story of Jordan trying to scare Bryana about the kids table during Thanksgiving. This was funny, even though it didn't get 'wrapped up' like most traditional story lines. That gave it the feel of being one of the many ongoing pranks between the kids.



    I think the best part is how this episode ties-in to the antagonistic Bernie-Vanessa relationship. Part of Bernie's distrust in Mr. Diggs (the vegetarian teacher Vanessa admires) is jealousy; Vanessa has a new male role model besides Bernie. Bernie takes steps toward accepting that she is no longer a little girl, but reminds her that she isn't a woman yet either. Funny overall episode.moreless
