Brilliant episode
20 March 2007 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

This episode is brilliant. There has not been anything that didn't fit in this episode. It contains all: humor, romance, good music, ambiance, it's great!

And about the storyline.The tension of asking yourself if the private life is going to be revealed in the press is good to watch. But it keeps you waiting for a future episode to actually know what will be exposed in the media. It makes it exiting to watch. It has another reason: It makes it even better to see some progress between the two on the end of the episode, especially while hearing Sting's great music! Very good job getting him on the show, it resulted in a very good one.
