The worst episode I've seen
7 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode was just cheesy and melodramatic for a topic that is not that interesting in the first place.

I rate all the episodes as 6-9, but this was laughingly bad....

I get Kevin is charmed but random girls and women as many adolescent boys are, but this was somewhat repeating the story lines of previous stories where he suddenly falls for a teacher or a new classmate. Relating go to the dentist to war was a stretch, and the story line was unrealistic for a story so simple. The dental assistant's character was not plausible.
