Very solid episode; best demonstration yet of character development
9 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Until now, I really thought that only character showing development was Susan but this episode changed all that. The writers did a great job pulling more out of both Trina and, particularly, Tom, but also (surprisingly) Janet. It's not often you see such progress made in such a short period of time (the first nine episodes of a series). The set up is there for Roger to evolve and, I half suspect, Bruce to devolve (especially after what happened at the end of this episode, but that remains to be seen). There is certainly the opportunity for character development as it relates to the relationship Laura and B.J. have with their parents, too.
