Episode #2.13
18 April 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My favorite part is about Lindsay and Melanie trying to get their kid into the school. Was pretty funny to see Brian and Lindsay as a heterosexual couple and the result of it was even funnier. Didn't expect that.

The story of Debbie meeting her ex boyfriend from high school and Michael finding out who his real farther is was very interesting, I just have a feeling there could be more there. I just have trouble to point at what it is.

And Justin being a dancer can lead to some interesting episodes.
