Whose Appy Now? (#3.14), 23 December 2014
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This episode was lighter than many. Had lots of humor, especially when it comes to Mark being a player and dating three women at the same time and being caught. Was pretty funny, especially since his character is so different for this.

It was also great to have Carter operate on Benton. Also caused so many laughs with the music and all the pictures that were made, the two are a fun team.

There was one sad story that it seems isn't over yet. About a 17 year old who wants to get of respirator and die in control of his life but his mother can't let it happen. A great idea, very moving, one really feels for them all.

And Jeanie getting a kiss at the end was very positive. Definitely a great episode.
