  • Not that having too many storylines is a bad thing, but I really liked it when they cramped it down to only two in the first season.

    The episode juggled a lot here; Alex's and Marissa's growing relationship; Ryan wanting to connect Lindsay with her father; Sandy looking for the daughter of his law school professor who he used to be engaged to; and Summer and Seth taking one step closer to becoming "friends". And surprisingly it didn't crash and burn like some other shows would when they would have so many things to handle on its plate. As always each of these scenarios were backed up by some incredible writing and witty and hilarious dialogue and the situations are getting more interesting by the minute. Marissa and Alex potentially dating? That relationship explains itself. And Summer and Seth, who I always thought was the best executed relationship in the show, is always keeping you on your feet. While the episode did a great job of trying to weave together these four storylines, the show should probably just stick with having only two per episode. It worked in season one and for the most part, just about every episode was excellent.
