Hard to leave the glow of your love
15 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

Lying. Just don't do it. This episode is all about the consequences of hiding the truth.

Hayley liking Cheryl Crow only ages her, and Hayley already acts and looks more mature then the others. She is supposed to be in high school and like new bands who I've never heard over. Not someone who's been around forever.

The geek in me finds it humorous the references to internet speeds and how having DSL vs dial up is a luxury.

I'm still stuff on Lucas' hair colour being blonds, but neither of his parents are. Deb's hair is also blonde, and her sons isn't. Casting wise it makes more sense for Lucas and Nathan to swap. Try imagining Nathan and Lucas in opposite roles. I don't think I could love the James Lafferty version of Lucas the way I love the Chad Michael Murray version of Lucas.

Epic put down by by Brooke to that guy at the bar. Sucks to be him! Brooke is so cool though. I don't know why I love someone who is so mean, but she is so great.
