It Has to Be Now



I thought Ray Romano was done with the show, so imagine my surprise to see him pop up on the season premiere. Did he have another show that didn't get picked up for this season and he was suddenly without a job and decided to come back? Anyway, this episode was just okay. Amber almost made it the entire episode before she cried. Just one second left and she would done a 'cry-free episode'. I don't think she is going to be very happy because I don't see that relationship making it to the alter. I liked the look on Bob Little's face when he realized that Kristina was running for Mayor. Haha.

I had to double-check the episode order for this 5th and final season. Was pretty certain the order was cut down to 13 episodes. Looks like it's actually for a full 22 episode season.

(didn't watch it)

Really? You thought there is an Cry-free Amber episode. Oh hellll no.

I'm not really sure I'm going to pick this up this season.

All Aboard Who's Coming Aboard




We've talked about Adam's control issues a couple of times over the course of the series, but it wasn't until this episode where he just really p*ssed me off big time with regards to his attitude. I truly believe the character of Adam is "misogynistic" in a way toward Kristina. Yeah, I get that he really loves her, but if you look back at the entire series, there are a lot of things that just scream that his mindset is that the woman has no place other than the bedroom or the kitchen. Whenever Kristina wants to do something for herself, be it a treat or running for office, Adam never reacts well to this and starts to pout like an infant child. Why does he do this?  Because HIS world is being upended. She is focusing on something other than him and he doesn't react well at all. Just think back to all the times where she has to argue with him just do something for herself.

Why the f*ck can't he just for once just embrace something she wants to do 100% without fail? Why does he have to always question her motives? Why does he always have to say sh*t like "do you think it's the right time for this". It's passive aggressive behavior and his way of trying to keep her under his thumb. Am I wrong in this assessment? Am I the only one that sees this as his obvious negative trait?

Props to the addition of David Denman (The Office) and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (another Friday Night Lights alum) joining the cast. One last thing, I loved Crosby's meltdown at the restaurant after being asked by the manager to leave because his new baby girl was crying, annoying the other customers. I would have reacted the same way. On the flip side, I too would have been annoyed listening to a baby crying while trying to enjoy my dinner.

Still have not watched this... yet.

Well since your going there, I'm in the mindset, children do not belong in certain establishments. Certain restaurants, movie theaters, etc.
People pay good money to be entertained with fine food and movie experience. There is just zero reason a crying baby to be present in these establishments. Sure, parenting is tough, but that does not give you a right or excuse to bring said baby to destroy everyone else's good time. I just find that selfish when parents do this. You don't have to see the movie. You don't have to go to that restaurant. Stay in or get involved with company in your same predicament.

Dayum, maybe I'll have to watch it now. Crosby has always been on the fence for me. Most of the time I like what he does and says, but there's been plenty I don't agree with.

Oh, I'm totally on the side of the paying customer to be able to voice their displeasure (even though none of them had the balls to do it themselves and left it to the restaurant manager to be the messenger). I get irritated when I'm being subjected to a crying baby, especially indoors where the crying is more magnified. With that said, I stand by the fact that I would have reacted the same way as Crosby because he was more or less "banned" from eating at that particular time. All the manager had to so was politely suggest to Crosby and Jasmine to take the baby outside (away from paying customers) to stop the baby from crying. If they are able to do so, come back in a eat. If the baby persist in crying, then and only then would I have said "time to go". But they weren't even given that option and that's why I think Crosby reacted the way he did, as would I.

Ok, I get what the situation was now. Thanks for the details.

From that, any parent should have immediately gotten up and out themselves to deal with the nuisance. So did Crosby and Jasmine, do what? Wait? ride it out? What was going on from the time of the crying baby to being kicked out. Was it a snooty restaurant and they jumped on them in seconds or what?

Just seems to be respectable for the parents to immediately take care of the issue... if you know what I mean.

Oh forgot to mention, Jasmine was trying to breast feed the baby. Mind you it wasn't out in the open like a lot of mothers seem to do nowadays. This was discreet. Anyway, she was trying to get the kid to latch and Crosby was kind of oblivious to what was going on at first (and the reason why they didn't just get up and leave).

Nipple Confusion



Solid episode that tackles a couple of real world issues that every parent will have to face. Last week Camille suggests to Zeke that they sell their house so that they could travel and see the world. In this episode, of course Zeke spends the entire time avoiding having that conversation as we clearly see that he doesn't want to sell the house. It's not until the end of the episode does he lay it all out there as to why he doesn't. All his memories of their family life, their kids, profound and monumental moments of theirs occurred in and around the house. So, one would expect that Camille would soften and let go of the idea of selling. Nope. The line has been drawn and not sure where they are going to take this. Looks to me that they could end up splitting once and for all. But that would be a horrible way to end the series if this is in fact the final season.

Julia and Joel have to addressed whether or not to hold Victor back a grade due to his poor reading skills. You have Julia that is willing to pull the trigger and do just that and you have Joel wanting to stick it out and give Vic a chance to pull through and succeed. No final decision was made, but it looked like Julia is willing to give him time.

There were a couple of scenes that I thought were great. The first was Drew dealing with his College roommate more or less hijacking their room to bang girls. Sure, him running to Amber and Ryan wasn't the smartest move. Because Drew kept coming back to their loft to hang out, it was putting a serious crimp in Amber and Ryan's sex life. So, when Ryan barged in on the roommate....it was hella funny. On the surface, it may have appeared that he was helping Drew, but in fact it was more of a "selfish" move so that he and Amber would finally be able to have sex if Drew wasn't coming around any more. FYI, really not sure what they are doing with Drew's hair. Why is he suddenly going down the Emo road? Comb your f*cking hair!!

Best scene of the episode was when Crosby finally connected with his baby daughter and was able to finally feed her from a bottle. The way that baby was looking at Crosby was priceless.

In Dreams Begin Responsibilities



Zeke is awesome in the way that he could get Victor to agree to work on rebuilding his car with the stipulation that he Victor reads from the car manual to help him because he can't "see" as well. Sure, that may be somewhat true, but the objective here is to get him reading and to do it because there is an end game, an objective to meet on a personal basis. It's one thing to sit a kid down and force him to read for the sake of read. No kid wants to do that and many don't have the patience to do it if they are already struggle with it. But add in the idea that their reading will benefit them directly in the near future and you have motivation to get you through the hurdles. Zeke is awesome!

I really don't understand how Amber can be so naive and just brush aside that Ryan is hiding something from his past regarding his family. It's most likely that he was disowned. But the fact that she shuts Amber down every time when she tries to get him to open up is a huge red flag and one that should make her seriously question if getting married is the right thing to do. If he won't open up before getting married, what's telling her that he will later? What's telling her that things will get better with him? She's got blinders on and doesn't want to admit defeat.
