Needs something more... I love where this is leading
30 December 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

"Don't be nervous!" "If my heart rate was any lower, I'd be dead." ~Brian and Lindsay

While this wasn't an incredible episode or anything, I nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed it, much more than the previous episode. This episode seemed all about laying down the foundation for something bigger. I can't see Justin's career as a go-go dancer or the relationship that he has with his boss being very productive. I fell in love with Brian all over again during the scene between him and Lindsay at the school. There was such irony to the result of them going together that it was actually quite hilarious. I also LOVED the actor who plays Divina, as I immediately recognized his from The Producers. The actor has incredible comedic timing and a really nice voice. That entire subplot where Michael finds out who his father really is was completely unexpected and yet easily likable. Great episode, but I have a feeling the next one will be even better.
