Martin Starr did a fantastic job
11 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Just like the previous episode, this one handles more deeper and emotional issues.

The geeks storyline stars the amazing Martin Starr as Bill, having his mother dating yet 'another' man. From what we understand is that she used to be quite the lady back in the day, she was most likely an erotic dancer and drug/alcohol addict. In this episode she reveals to Bill that she is dating Coach Fredricks. Bill is unhappy with this and tries to scare him away, but Coach aka Ben reveals to Ben that he loves his mother. I love the ending of the episode where Bill gives him a chance while watching the telly. Martin Starr did a fantastic job, he showed that he doesn't only excel at comedy but also at drama.

The freaks storyline features Lidnsay and Kim running over Millie's dog. This results into Millie wanting to be one of the freaks and wanting to go to a 'The Who' concert. Millie got to finally shine in this episode, but she changed her mind after being told by Kim who was responsible for Goliath's aka Millie's dog's death. One of my favorite parts of the episode was Nick and his song 'Lady L'. I tend to hate his character, but that song was pure brilliance.

overall, this episode deserves four and a half stars. Or five.
