  • A very touching episode

    This is a sweet episode. A little sad, but still good. Really makes you think about getting older, and how scary it might be. So in a way it is kind of a "social issue" episode, but it's definitely not as preachy as some of the others in the series. It's touching, but not really funny... which is ok once and awhile. I love the scene at the end where Sophia is "visited" by Sal. As a couple, they had good chemistry. Actually the only complaint I have about the episode is the one flashback that Dorothy has, with young Sophia and Sal. That actress was nowhere near good enough to play Sophia, and didn't look much like her either. Overall it was kind of a dumb scene. They really should've left it out and put something else in its place. But it's still a great episode. It's too sad to be one you'd really watch a lot, and not funny enough, but it was definitely very well done and deserves credit for that.
