    The sixteenth episode of Secret Life's third season was a bit of a let down in my eyes but we got a few scenes that really salvaged the episode. I never really liked the Jack & Grace pairing, but they got the best scenes tonight, and I'm glad Megan Park is getting some actual legitimate story lines, unlike how it's been as of late.

    The Jack & Grace scenes I'm sure got us all nostalgic and reminded us of their relationship from earlier in the series, and by the looks of next week, things will be no different when Ben & Amy share some scenes together.

    So as predicted, Ricky doesn't have an STD, that was a bit predictable, his scenes with his mother really annoyed me though. I guess I just really don't like the actress who plays Nora, just can't help but roll my eyes when she's on my television screen. The same goes for Madison & Lauren who both got way too much screen time tonight.

    At least Amy, Madison, and Lauren are actually being civil toward each other. I'm not really buying this whole Grace & Grant relationship, so anything with them bugs me as well. I'm loving the new counselor and she got some really good scenes with Ashley tonight as well. Overall, solid installment, still needs to work out a few kinks though (like the sudden obsession Ben has of marrying the first girl he sees).moreless

    "Mirrors" was an interesting episode of The Secret Life. Adrian's father was the happiest person in town? My how things have changed on this show.

    It looks like we are in for months and months of Ricky and Amy and Ben and Adrian. Not that these pairings aren't good, but the show was built on those couples being swapped and I think that is when the show was truly at its best, with Ben and Amy and then Adrian and Ricky. I think the problem with tonight's episode for me is they tried to fit everyone in. Instead of good scenes we just had a cluster of nonsense and it was really hard to keep track of where everyone stood.moreless
