The Big Reunion (#1.15)
2 November 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a very sweet episode. I like the idea of Carl being worried about his weight when going to the reunion. Seems to be a real life problem when going to meet people that you haven't seen for that long. Although I guess us people with Facebook don't have to worry about that

It is also very funny. I really loved Carl in this episode. The scene of him being caught eating baby food was absolutely hilarious. So was him and the cupcakes and it was pretty sweet how he went on the scale asking everyone to look away.

Of course I wonder if it is episodes like this that make people feel as if healthy food and diets are gross. But of course it just had to be done this way to make it funnier
