A blow of fresh air
9 March 2010 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I already said before this season is quite gloomy and, despite his high quality, the irony lacks. This was a refreshing episode on this point of view, because it started in a very light mood, showing the best and most human side of JJ, one of the most underrated characters in the series but one of the most lovely. Then, suddenly, the atmosphere started to darken a little bit as the episode analyzed a sadly popular phenomenon in England nowadays, the teen moms (it was previously slightly touched in the last part of second season): who could ever imagine the punkish-pink-haired Lara was Albert's mother? By the way, nice choice for her role, I liked Georgia Henshaw. It is not the best episode of the series, but it was sweet and lighter, and there were some scenes just well written, such as the dialogue between JJ and the heart-broken Emily, which I particularly liked. The series is nearly completed now, but I feel next episode will give us some shivers!
