Family Business (#13.19)
29 May 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The story about the old guy with Alzheimer's who lost his son was extremely sad. Especially when I thought that he will have to find out that his child died whenever he asks as if it is a new event. Luke gave a different perspective to it, saying that he will not have to remember every day that his son died. I guess it is a very philosophical question which is worse. Robert Prosky is pretty good as confused father, and it was one of his last jobs.

I also felt bad for Sarah that Tony is not her father. I am pretty sure though her grandparents will let her live with him at the end. She was pretty much like his daughter anyways. One could tell right away where the test went though.

The scene of Armenian guys fighting was also pretty good and Ken Davitian is in it.
