Despite still feeling the emotional pain of the situation, Erica is trying to move on with her life after Adam breaking up with her. She is trying to make herself feel better by wearing pretty but somewhat provocative clothes. Her friends believe her outward appearance matches how she is feeling inside. Coincidentally, she runs into Ethan, who is also a recent dumpee, this time by yet another strong, risk taking woman, much in the same vein of Claire and Erica herself. Erica sees that Ethan is always falling for the wrong type of woman, one who wants different things in life than he does. Erica believes that Ethan needs a female version of himself - sweet, quiet and socially conservative, someone exactly like a friend of hers from graduate school. So Dr. Tom sends Erica back to her graduate school days to play matchmaker for Ethan. This experience shows Erica what Ethan really needs in his current life. Meanwhile, Brent and Julianne have to decide how best to move on from their ... Written by Huggo

the super hot episode

Back in the First Season, there is an episode with the reputation among fans as "The Super Gay Episode" (it's the one with Anna Silk) and inspired by that, I have dubbed this one "the super hot episode" as it follows in the wake of a long stream of episodes, a really, really long stream of episodes, I mean, we could go back a very, very long way... episodes that just didn't even remotely come even close to the standard I expect from my glam purchases. So, imagine my surprise when I zapped this one on, expecting just the usual fare, and got... well, the super hot episode.

(Which is exaggerating more than just a little bit BUT if you check out my recent tirades here on virtually all the recent episodes, you will see a pattern forming of one totally exasperated viewer thinking "I should have known not to trust a Canadian product made for the BBC" AND AT THE VERY LEAST this one kicked off very promising AND I felt "okay, let bygones be bygones" at least this one will help to make up)

The story opens with a twosome that turns into a threesome, which turns into a foursome. No, NOTHING LIKE THAT, it's just passionate body worship, nothing revealing, all, well, almost family fare, almost, BUT THEN... after it all turns out to have been a dream sequence, Erica goes for a walk to the office, in a pair of high heels (with the camera zooming in enticingly close) and a floral-print bright tropical (er, whatever) summer dress, and an executive type with attache case calls out to her "Hey, sexy!" and that sums up the episode AND THAT made it for me. After all my recent rants, ol' Erica, indeed, ol' Erin, did pull it off to make no less a luminary than The Raven eat his words.

Yeah, still hot, years later. You win, Erin. I'm glad.

And, yes, hooray, Adam's out on his ass!
