Part 2 of this episode bothers me...
4 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...mainly because it has gone from Jo and her professor being in love to him just basically dumping his kid on her. Okay, it was realistic to show that this professor has a young son, but it should have made him realize that he cannot afford to take his relationship with Jo further, and that he did not want her to sacrifice her youth to play "mother" to his son. But, instead, he decides to make young Jo a virtual stepmother. Therefore, she is expected to forgo her duties and her friends just to chaperon this young bowl-haired tyke. She is even forced to step out of attending a lecture at school so she could attend parent's night at the brat's school (and this kid is a brat) then she gets a call from Sam saying he can't make it because of some meeting he can't get out of, so Jo has to stay behind and watch after the kid. Then, a day later, as Jo is about to have fun with her friends, Sam drops by and tells her that his son and his friends need someone to play cars with them, and almost makes her skip out on her plans once again. Then, at the end of the episode, he asks her to marry him, then she says she can't. He seems understanding, even though throughout the episode he's basically dumping his kid on her. So, this was the only "FOL" episode that bothers me to this day. Starting out as a great episode that is very realistic, then it becomes unrealistic. And, I'm sorry, I cannot stand that kid!
