I thought that this show was great and had an excellent cast - the storyline was very realistic. Besides, you can't judge a show on one episode! Look at Heroes - in the beginning it was great and now ??? who even watches it?!

An imperfect storm of storylines. Too much for one episode. Everything that could go wrong does. Unfortunately the outcomes are very predictable. I bet it wasn't Amber's weed. It was the good clean cousin's weed. And everyone will be shocked and Sarah will appologize to her daughter. Predictable. And the line about goggling sperm. Yeah! Like they provide names and let you store sperm at home. I was looking forward to a show by Ron Howard. I'll pass on this one.
