New Developments are completely Enthralling
28 December 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

"To Michael, beneath whose mild-mannered appearance beats the heart of a superhero." ~A note from Ben to Michael

This episode is one that makes me very happy that David's gone. If David hadn't been eliminated from the series, then the lovable character of Ben would never have surfaced. From the very second that he walks through the door of that comic book store, Ben has a certain beauty about him. He is played really well by Robert Gant, and I immediately found him more likable than the sometimes controlling character of David. Michael finally has the perfect match... until the shocking ending. I have to admit that while I didn't see that coming at all, I did think that it was a very cool direction to go with this character and could lead to some great future conflict and emotional levels. The developments with Justin and Brian in this episode were also absolutely fantastic. In the beginning of the episode, the viewer sees that Brian seems to finally be accepting that he is actually in a "relationship", however loose the terms of that word may be to him, and his friends start noticing it too. After Justin is shocked when he comes home to Brian with another one of his latest "tricks", Brian and Justin have to resolve problems in their relationship, which leads to a cute little speech from Justin and lots of simply fabulous moments. It was very interesting to see how well Michael's new job was flourishing in comparison to Ted's porn job. I loved how Emmett was basically the savior of everything, however unexpected it may have been. Overall a PERFECT episode, and re-introducing O'Tool was a hilarious move, even though he was only in a mere fraction of the episode's running time.
