If I Had a Hammer (#7.11)
23 January 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The best part of this episode is David getting to deal with mental problems. It is great watch him in it. I think Brian Austin Green is one of the best actors on the show and he manages to make such stories perfectly. When his face lit up as his mother came was wonderful. Or when he talked to the doctor, he managed to do make it look natural, not over dramatic and fake. He is great and talented for sure. I also loved the scene of him and Donna getting back together. I liked him with all his women but it is nice to bring him and Donna back together.

Steve is really a moron. Who would ever hand in a paper that was handed in on the same campus???? This is insane, I kind of want him to be punished because being an idiot all the time and get away with it is not great.
