  • Good idea but the way it was done good be better

    I think they come with amazing idea - showing the other side of those people of those reality shows.. and for that girl it was journey there and back.. she did it all to get a man but then it came out that everything she did, not worked.. and that those people who stand around her before, standed after this too but she also got into problem in meantime..

    So.. I am not sure.. The story was good but it did not worked out on screen.. I got what they wanted to say.. they got message trough but it was not episode you expect... it had something missing to make it a good one.moreless
  • It could have been better but I was pleased with what I got.

    This episode definetly showed a side to Danny that I loved. Being my favorite character I enjoyed seeing him a lot in this episode. His fashion sense still needs improving a lot still though. Good episode. I know men should never fear pink but what was with the shirt that Martin was wearing.
  • Interesting plot...not the greatest, but still worth watching.

    First, since I'm a huge SMarty fan...eeeee -- Martin is clearly smitten. You can totally see it when he watches Sam walk away after she brushes against him. AND Viv notices all...the all-knowing Viv. LOL. And OMG Jessie Spano from SBTB is still around...ELizabeth Berkley did a great job playing the made up American Goddess. It was a heartwarming story to show us that sometimes being absolutely beautiful isn't always the solution. If you change the outside without changing the inside, you will never be completely fulfilled. Without A Trace did a nice job bringing in some controversial issues, while still giving us viewers a good episode.moreless
