  • To avoid having "the talk" about sex, Kevin and Jack build a treehouse which at first seems like a chore for them, but they start to bond. However, they have to face the subject sooner or later.

    This is one of my favorite episodes of the series. It's smart and funny. I like the father and son theme in this particular episode in how it deals with having or not having "the talk", and how some fathers and sons are insecure in talking about sex. It's unexpected what happens half way through, and a nice touch in writing. I like the outcome as well as using the song 'The Birds And The Bees' at the end. One of the great things about the series itself was the song selection from that period and how it fits with the scenes.
