Episode #2.3
13 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This wasn't a bad episode.

I must say I kind of agree with the author who was against Brian getting the award. Nothing that Brian did was all that hero like anyways. Helping a friend being beaten up is a normal thing to do. And yes, Brian is absolutely the kind of person that supports bad stereotypes about gays. And he did use Justin at least in the very beginning and made a life of a teenager even harder.

But I did like the actions of Brian at the end. I am glad that he went for Michael instead for this award, and supported their great friendship. Moments like this make me like Brian
