Jim bob doubts his heritage
14 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best acted of all and the plot is so familiar to us all. This story enhances the character traits of each actor and character. It bonds the viewer to Jim Bob forever. The story has modern day analysis to teasing and bullying especially by siblings. Please watch this episode, it will touch your heart and bring tears to dry eyes. We see the soft side of Grandma throughout, the quality and character of neighbors who honor their friends by minding their own business. What a lesson for today! James Robert does a tremendous job of acting and it is the first time we see Jim Bob evolve from boy to teenager. This is a great episode. I highly recommend to all.
