  • The best episode so far

    I think people really need to give this show another try. Yes, it has its weak episodes but this one really stands out. We can finally see the characters farther from their stereotypes and start to show some depth, especially with Bryan. I thought this episode could just be about a silly gender war where the guys get into a fight on how to decorate the baby's room but when Ryan told his speech about being unable to relate with his dad and his fear about it happening again with the kid was really touching. Also, the ending where Goldie finds out what to do with her life was unexpected and I really loved it, much better from what it seemed she was being driven to. A lot of character development in this episode and can't wait to see what's going to happen next. Again, Nana's absence is truly appreciated.
