One of the best episodes of the series. For those harping on Victor's homerun, anyone who has been involved in little league baseball will tell you there are often a lot of wild plays like that with several errors. I liked how they showed the family's reaction to Kristina's news without us hearing what was being said. However, I think the scene would have been even better if they had let it play out a little bit and shown the interaction between Kristina and the family after her news and they support that they obviously gave to her. The scene seemed to end a little too abruptly.
FANTASTIC episode. i love this show, makes me want to watch friday night lights. favorites are crosby, max, drew and amber. i like crosby less though the more responsible he becomes though
I am so in love with this show. The acting, the tugging of hearstrings, the laughs, the sense of family togetherness, how real everything is. I cry almost every epsiode. The direction of this episode was amazing. How they showed all of the family reacting to the news without actually hearing the words was just incredible. I can not agree with the reviewer(Carissa)more on not understanding why more people aren't enthralled by this series.
This is the best show on TV, sucks that the ratings don't show it. Sarah needs to learn she doesn't always need a guy. Adam and Kristina are great. Joel is my wife and daughter's favorite. Zeek is a great family patriarch.
@G who writes: even with Victor's unrealistic home run.
I loved the scene because it was hilariously realistic. Or what's next on tv.
Victor (who plays badly) was able to have a home run because the other kids were exactly at his level.
That made him part of the group, more than the home run, and on a plus side in one scene they show us that Victor (gorgeous kid, by the way) realizes that the others are family, someone who will fight for you, not just people. I thought it was brilliant story telling.
I loved it, too, even with Victor's unrealistic home run. I cried when Haddie walked in. The looks on everyone's faces even before Kristina shared the news were so effective to get across their confusion and concern (after initial excitement, of course).
Where was the Bravermans' new dog??
Love Amber and Ryan together. I think Sarah needs to ditch both her love interests and learn how to be alone!
I quit a job like Julia's recently for similar reasons. Best decision I ever made. I'm sure there will be challenges for her family, but they will work through them and it will be better than where they were for sure.
Agree with Carissa: Mark was because of the issues, then I too felt like it was imposed. I may be heartless, but the fuss about family picture IMO was absurd. Hank on the other side is magic. It is. It will still give us plenty to look at (not the easiest and natural kind of romance, but entertaining).
I don't know why every body MUST settle down (for the fans). I mean Amber.
There are so many relationships on this program it would be nice to dig into Amber's career possibilities instead of another boyfriend.
End scene: I wasn't a fan of the whole cancer plot, but if it's delivered this way: way to go!
As for Julia, finally! I mean, I hate to see a woman give up what she's worked for and hope to see her soon in a new work environment, but still, you had to ask yourself.. how could she always be around for the family while pursuing a career? Truth is, it's really really hard for men and women alike... just, for a woman, it's a little bit harder.^_Â°
The end was so fantastic they look on all there faces as soon as Haddie walked in was a mix of happiness and shock and then quickly went to sadness when Christina told them about her cancer.
I too thought it was a sweet moment when Victor got his home run, however I found it a little odd that the team they were playing was winning 4-1 and then when he hit the ball they could not catch or throw it. No new episode next week....BUMMER
This was another great episode!
Carissa: Mark still has his apartment 2 weeks ago they were at his place making a meal when she was first talking to Mark about Hank. Jason Ritter has said many time that he loves the show so I really hope that he stays. I do not want her and Hank to get together!
I too am not a Haddie fan but I knew she would come home as soon has she heard the news. I am just curious as to how she knew where they all were.
I knew Julia was going to quit as soon as she was making pancakes and Sydney was still super upset.
I really want Amber and Ryan to get together! I think they would make a great couple and I can see him being on the show a very long time! I hope he stays around.
Amber is so great with Max. Amber is one of my favorite's. I almost cried during the scene with her and Christina!
The end was so fantastic they look on all there faces as soon as Haddie walked in was a mix of happiness and shock and then quickly went to sadness when Christina was telling them about her cancer. The last moments were so fantastic!
While I too think it was great Victor got a home run was great it seemed a little odd that the team they were playing was winning 4-1 and then when Victor hit the ball the team could not catch or throw a ball. It was a sweet moment but it would have been a little better if he smacked it out of the ball park!
No episode next week....Bummer!
Such an underrated series! It ridiculous that not everyone watches this show. Best betrayal of a family's love and support through many tribulations!
Loved this episode. My favourite so far for the season!
