Just Smile



Dax Shepard


Courtney Ford


Max Burkholder & Peter Krause


Jason Ritter & Lauren Graham


This episode felt incredibly small by comparison to the entire series. Only one scene with Max, Haddie and Kristina. Nothing with Zeek and Camille. And even the few scenes with Julie and Joel were a bit on the light side. I guess when you boil it down, the entire episode was about Crosby and his whining. Ugh. Just when I think he has turned the corner and is going to grow up, he reverts back to a 5 year old throwing a temper tantrum. I get and can empathize why he is p*ssed and jealous. But come on dude! It's just one magazine cover. You have a hot cello player (Courtney Ford) eyeballing you and this is all you can fixate on? Potential love interest here. But how long before he phucks this one up and she is off the show?

So, it looks like Zoe has convinced her boyfriend to sign the adoption papers for Julie and Joel. I was sure they were going to drag this out a bit longer but I suspect there's something afoot here. Maybe she forged his signature and when they go to make the adoption legal, the boyfriend pops back up creating a messy situation? It just seemed to end a bit prematurely here. Eh? Also, I was 100% certain that this was the episode where Mark and Sarah would break up because she was pushing for the "having a baby" talk. To my surprise he seemed to be receptive to the idea of pursuing it which means he's gonna die or something. That's how it works on shows like this. Give 2 characters a shot at happiness and then snatch it away at the 11th hour. Bah!!

More likely scenario will be that Mark gets super pumped up at the idea of having a kid and being a father only to discover that Sarah can't have any more children and with him now wanting a kid he will most likely walk from the relationship and pursue a woman that can bare his children. That's my guess.

I do see a pattern with her now. She is very clingy. First with her Ex-Husband, and now with Mark. Watching her beat around the bush trying to broach the subject of a baby was uncomfortable to watch because it was like everything in her existence seems to hinge on what Mark had to say about it.

It Is What It Is



Courtney Ford & Dax Shepard


Joy Bryant


Skyler Day & Miles Heizer


Mae Whitman



Amber (Mae Whitman) has the 'disinterested' flirting down to a perfect science. Her "flirting" was painful to watch. I'm guessing that was flirting. Who can really tell with her at times. I've never seen anyone more bored than she was. Should Amber and the Congressman hook up, it's gonna be boring is my guess. And speaking of people that shouldn't be getting together, Jasmine (Joy Bryant). Please tell me you're not about to sabotage Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Lily (Courtney Ford's) budding romance just because you prefer to have your cake with Joe and keep Crosby in the corner because you don't want him to move on and would prefer that he die alone. Are you that petty? It's clear that relationship doesn't work. There is no need for the writers to keep doing this merry-go-round with this two. It's going to be pointless for the viewer since we already know how it's going to end every time.

Haddie. Poor Haddie. I feel for her. But I also feel for the parents that are going to have to foot the bill with money they clearly don't have. Adam needs to just man up and tell her he doesn't have the money. Him wanting to be the 'good Dad' could tear the family apart down the road when they are in financial ruin. Jr. College ftw!!!!! Bah!! The whole Drew (Miles Heizer) thing was uncomfortable to watch. Seeing him trying to distance himself from his mother because she was cramping his style and then having her kind of forcing herself into his new inner circle elevated it to another level that even had me squirming in my seat.

Yea, I don’t know what’s going on with Amber and the politician. That’s not going to go well. Boring, probably, but I see conflict. Where are these two folks from different sides of the tracks going to find common ground?

I think Jasmines thoughts are more about who is this other person, outside of her circle, impressing her son. How’s that feel Jasimine? Now you know how Crosby has felt through your callous it’s all about me treatment. That one little look by Joe told a whole lot about how he’s going to have a conversation with Jasmine as well. And speaking of looks, the looks on Julia’s face while she’s hugging Zoe for comfort displayed realization, this baby adoption is still very delicate and it’s not looking like it will go through.

Crosby is such a loose cannon with emotions, who know’s what direction he’ll end up taking. I would love to see he and Lily take off.

I was completely blown away by Adam’s breakdown with Haddie. Oh good gawd, this is so out of character for him. Why? Why did he do that? It doesn’t make sense. But, you know what, his action might be representative of what a lot of parents do today. Doing what they can for their baby’s even if it means bringing on a lot of pain for the rest of their lives. It doesn’t make sense.

Drew’s actions isn't new to me and it shouldn’t be to Sarah. It didn't work with Amber and it's not going to work with Drew. I see this all the time in real life and we see it repeated in dramas on TV. Sarah is once again is living this Utopian world, that she does not live in. Get a clue Sarah, let him make some decisions. You trying to control his world is like wrangling cats. Good luck with that.

I think the look on Joe's face was more about "it's over" than wanting to have a conversation with her. He doesn't strike me as the type that would willing put himself in the middle of a situation where he would have to beg and say "choose me". Every guy has experienced that 'look' where you just know the writing is on the wall. It's best to pull up anchor and move on instead of beating a dead horse and trying to make something work.

My guess is that after this plays out, Crosby and Lily will have nice thing going, she will bond with Jabbar and start to become more involved in both their lives and on the flip side, Jasmine will end up alone (once Joe bails) and she will start plotting to break up Crosby happy little life. Jealousy is a motherf*cker.

I think Joe and Amber should hook up. It would be more entertaining than what the writers are currently cooking up with the Congressman. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the Amber/Congressman thing doesn't work out. Duh. We both can see it coming. But I get the feeling they are going to set up something along the lines of a nasty fight or something that torpedoes his chances at running for Public Office. There's something about him that just rubs me the wrong way, like, "I'm a Congressman, why are you not kissing my ass and giving me what I want" kind of persona. What do you think Mac?

The Congressman is slime. Slick slime, but slime.

He puts on a great face, stereotype of what I think of politicians at least.

Politics

















The more that Jasmine keeps trying to make Crosby jealous, the more I detest her. Her narcissistic personality is such a turn off. I don't get why she feels the need to tell Crosby everything with the intent of fishing for a reaction. So, I was pleasently happy when he was like "okay" when she said that she was in fact moving in with Joe. Not the reaction she was expecting, which made it all the more better. And speaking of Joe, I guess he is the kind of person that would beg to keep someone around. Buying her a house? Sheesh. Man up dude!! We know how this is going to end. He is going to buy her a house and then realize that she is still in love with Crosby. What is it with dudes always buying her a house?

The Amber/Bob thing is a mistake. It's not going to end well now that her co-workers suspect the reason why she got the promotion is for personal, rather than professional reasons. I see this relationship crashing and burning when she gets jealous of him having to glad handle for voters and will be caught flirting with Rich Wives and he will give an excuse like "this is how it works, blah blah blah......" Mark my words.

The whole Zoey thing is playing out exactly how I envisioned it. I knew she would bail, leaving them to wonder and obsess on about whether they are getting the baby or not. It's time to send in Zeek to kick her ass!
