  • Didn't like this episode either

    Family based episodes featuring people we don't care about= Crappy episode- Im sorry

    I didn't like the Mum or the boyfriend in this episode and so I often found myself utterly bored in this episode. The dialogue isn't too funny for me and the story really is poor to say the best.
  • Will's mother shows off her boyfriend

    This was a good episode after the past two have been a bit on the serious side. Vy's boyfriend comes off as very likeable. I enjoyed seeing how Will got jealous. You see how Will values the relationship with women partly due to him not having many relationships with men. He even formed a bond with Robert's daughter. I know it's been a while but seeing the women (Raven) who played Robert's daughter it's amazing to see how much she has grown. I also like how Robert makes a good relationship with everyone and not just Will. My favorite part is at the ending when Vy tells Will he needs to trust Robert more.

    This episode featuring Will’s mother is very funny and Will jealous has some very amusing scenes, especially those with Claudia, Robert’s daughter, who is very smart for a child her age.

    Although Robert is first mentioned in the Christmas episode, this is the first time we see him and how serious the relationship between he and Vy is.

    Will running away is a little too cowardly for Will’s character, even in that situation and I don’t think that part of the episode is believable.

    Overall, the episode has it’s funny moments and its serious moments and while it may not be one of my favourite episodes, it is one worth reviewing and is one that is definitely worth watching.
