ooh Willa Holland...!
RavenGlamDVDCollector13 December 2016
I've been a fan of Willa Holland from the moment she appeared on-screen, that is documented in reviews posted of previous episodes. Tonight's episode however, she hits the ball so way out of the park, you lot could simper on about Seth & Summer as much as you like, till the cows come home, but I just sit here and go d-uh! little missy is so scrumptious! She has a kind of magical charm that causes a guy like me to just there enraptured, sighing hopelessly and drooling pathetically. :) Oh, those eyes, the hair, okay, I'll shut up now...

Okay, as for the rest of the episode, at least it's an improvement on the previous two (see my reviews) but they don't change my opinion that the show has lost its vitality, and that the male lead, Ryan, is a bore. The about-turn with Julie who are now, at least at times, a good character, is kind of weird to take. I reflected on this especially while watching. She now even has soft appeal. Well, testimony to the beauty of Melinda Clark, but causing a whole lot of inconsistency for the believability of the series as a whole. Leopards do not change their spots. At the start of this season, she seemed to be going into Amanda-mode (only NIKITA fans will know what I am talking about) and tonight she was pussycat enough to have a chat with Summer. The hair and presentation changes with her mood. Understand what I mean about believability? I'm not complaining, though.

If you'd observe carefully, Autumn Reeser as Taylor Townsend is sliding down the ladder (no pun intended on two episodes back when she fell off one), she is of course real cute in a considerably coo-coo way, but there is less effort with her presentation for this episode, the camera-work doesn't favor her as in the others of this season.

The My Two Dads (#4.9)
ComedyFan201028 September 2014
Warning: Spoilers
Frank asks Sandy to let him meet Ryan. Sandy talks to Ryan and he says that he will, bit not yet. So Frank tells Kirsten and Julie that he is dying of cancer. They arrange him to meet Ryan but during the family dinner Sandy gets a call that Frank is healthy so they fight. And Summer and Seth both try to make the other one to break up the engagement.

I have a feeling that Sandy is so against Frank because he doesn't want to lose Ryan to his biological father. No worries Sandy, you will always be the dad! Actually I didn't expect Frank to be such a nice guy. Looks like Ryan's whole family is on self improvement. And him now hooking up with Julie might get interesting.

Lots of comedy from Summer and Seth trying to manipulate each other to not have the upper hand!
