I can't stand Jasmine. They could show her eating Saltines and I'd have a negative impression of it. Nothing she does makes me dislike her any less let alone ever like her more.
Interesting about Jabar and ballet. I like how Adam explained it to Crosby. Very mature and very realistic IMO.
Joel and Julia? They've both contributed to where they are. It's not as if they had a super solid foundation before Victor even came into the picture. Joel's whole attitude toward Victor has been problematic to me from the start... it just seems like Joel sees it the way he wants it to be instead of the way it actually is.
Zeke and Camille were just adorable in this episode. I love seeing Camille come into her own - it's not easy for women of her generation and I'm proud of the decisions she's making for herself and HER "third act".
Amber and Ryan have been doomed from the start. I've always felt Amber is just too emotionally stunted to have a real and true, healthy relationship and she keeps proving it to me. She's another one who sees things how she wishes them to be instead of how they actually are. I guess I blame Sarah for that because she's such a flake and not the best role model. I forget which character recently told Sarah that of course her family doesn't take her seriously because she's so flakey and has had how many jobs? Bartender, Writer, Photographer's assistant, Photographer, Superintendent, etc etc etc. As much as I love Jason Ritter's character I don't want him back with Sarah... he just deserves so much better. Don't get me wrong, I like Sarah (despite all the faults I find with her) but I want Mark to have someone more stable instead of someone's he's having to take care of so-to-speak.
Joel's boss "Pete"... Sonya Walger is such a well known actress and right now they're squandering her. This leads me to believe there's much more of a future there with her and Joel otherwise they could've cast a complete unknown if it was gonna be a throwaway role.
