The first part of this episode was great...
4 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...because I loved how Jo's relationship with Sam Hall, her college professor, was dealt with. At first, it's bliss, then they are brought back to reality. There are consequences of falling for a teacher, such as ridicule from other students and it is techniacally against school rules. But, at first in the episode, we see Sam being almost fatherly to Jo, then the two gradually begin to fall in love. Later on, they both realize that their actions could cost them their reputations. Jo, always a strong and independent woman, stands her ground and wants to keep her relationship with Sam going strong. But, Sam becomes a father figure again and thinks it's too risky to still see one another. However, the second part of this otherwise fantastic episode is a bit bothersome.
