James Van Der Beek accepted a part without reading the script just so he could work with child star Kiernan Shipka, but it's a body swap and learning to be a pre-teen girl in his studly body proves extremely hard. he does however learn to appreciate fan adoration again. Chloe makes most of her yearly income during the annual half week UN general assembly opening. Yet she finds that too exhausting and wants an assistant like James's. To avoiding paying one, she takes a foster daughter, Molly, and tricks unsuspecting June to sign up as Lesbian co-guardian. Naively taking on the maternal role, June ruins her own PA employment, without even earning gratitude. Written by KGF Vissers

another great episode
15 February 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

Just like the only other reviewer says. I'm just glad it's not the only episode I have seen, because this series is a gem. Before ordering it, I thought it might be good, the intriguing title showed a zany approach to life, and, well, Krysten Ritter from VAMPS and a couple of movies in which she was not the female lead... Anyway, I didn't expect it to be THIS good. Granted, maybe right there in the beginning, things were really, really 100%, maybe here and there I've seen little bits that could have been slightly better, making me remember what other reviewers (on the main title) said... But that's just nit-picking. This show is a firm favorite.

I pity the TV-viewers of the original round. They got it out of sequence.

About this episode: Chloe adopts a child to have free child labor, Molly is her secretary. Chloe wrangled it so that she and June appears to be lesbian co-parents. The flashback where the woman comes to screen them, is just hilarious, with June duped into playing along, not understanding why Chloe is hanging onto her... And James is up for a FREAKY Friday/VICE VERSA body swop part, only this is Father & Daughter, the one Hollywood hasn't tackled yet... Guest starring Kiernan Shipke.

Not quite giving it the ten stars as the other reviewer did, but believe me, I share the sentiment.

Oh, this is precious! My guess is that few people actually saw it, because how come this is so little known?
