  • The Essay

    8.5
    This hour is a bit bland if the truth be told, but it does see the start of Matthew and Rosemary's relationship so I guess some good comes of it. The romance in question begins as Rosemary is helping John-boy put the finishing touches to an essay: and John-boy is none too thrilled.

    To be truthful, it's a bit of a rubbish love triangle. Surely for it to be a triangle the girl has to be interested in both the blokes? This is just a schoolboy crush. Still, John Ritter's smile is amazing. They should definitely enter him in a grinning contest.

    Ben gets a slightly creepy bodybuilding subplot. It's a little weird to see him flexing and posing at such a young age, but the writers do come back to the topic of him wanting to be bigger a few times so fair play. I laughed out loud when Erin clambered across the roof to try and spy on him.

    The acting is pretty tidy this week, although Richard does look a little embarrassed when John-boy confesses his schoolboy crush. I can understand that. Seriously, who the hell writes an essay about their teacher?moreless

    • Opening Narration: When I was growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in the Depression, many of the things we take for granted today, back then were luxuries—like going to school. Many boys my age had to quit school and find jobs to help support their families, but my father and mother were determined that each of their offspring would graduate from high school.

    • Closing Narration: I was to know many teachers, but none so dedicated and gifted as Miss Rosemary Hunter. Even today I can feel her influence, for like any good teacher she left an indelible mark on my work, and on my life.
