Episode #2.9
25 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Michael is now back with Ben. I liked how they showed in this episode him chasing Ben to show how much he loves him. I expected it to take longer, but I am glad they didn't do it. It is better to just see their relationship develop

The story of Brian and his mother was very touching. I liked their scene in the church together when he decides not to tell her about the minister. I am glad he didn't, his selfish wish to destroy this men's life was a bit disgusting. But I loved how he didn't do it because religion is one thing that his mother feels comfort in and destroying it for her would be messing up a lot in her life

Ted and his Viagra story was a riot. Made me laugh so much, especially when he is all excited that the guy in the bar made him go soft.
