This episode
7 April 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is more like a screenplay than an episode and is one of the first episodes that probably helped solidfy the show. It was a more intense show and the fact that it has Matthew Perry (from Friends), makes the part actually believable.

This episode also setup the long ran storyline where Donna is having issues with her schooling, as the kids all get back their S.A.T. scores...

Brian Austin Green isn't actually in this episode, nor is Douglas Emerson.

Also, if you have an issue with suside and gun violence, this is a very graphic episode, it gets very close to the line.
