Great and underrated
23 January 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This was once again, a lovely episode rich of character development, friendship and hilarious dialog.

There were some of the funniest scenes of the show in this particular episode. One that cracks me up badly is when Sam burps during dinner and Harold naturally thinks that he's gonna blow up.

Sam's storyline in this episode was a little frustrating, I honestly never liked Sam much and didn't feel bad for him getting bullied by Karen.

Lindsay's bonding with Kim was far more interesting in my opinion. She got to meet her crazy family and see her get really p!ssed off after finding Karen sucking on Daniel's thumb. Once again, a hilarious scene with a nice and dry closing line 'She's p!ssed'.

Dinner at the Weir's place was awkward, especially once Kim and Daniel made up and end up making out in the kitchen. I loved their make up scene, she slapped him pretty hard in the face.

FOUR stars for this great and underrated episode.
