Highly contrived...but entertaining. I hated the last episode. It was over the top. That kid was annoying and rude. His parents should be smacked. Gideon missing the bus, totally predictable and obviously staged. The new waitress fighting with the bitchy bartender was annoying. Could we find more of a reason to show off her butt in a bathing suit? That phone call business at the end was confusing and stupid.
