Episode 11, Once Upon a Blog, was a fantasy episode that stalled Jenna’s decision on the love triangle, but it had its amusing moments. For the record, Jenna’s do-over of the closet confrontation with Matty was perfect and totally what she should have done. “Sorry, I’m not sorry” is not as good as “you’re welcome,” but Jenna looked really pretty when she was “popular.” Episode grade: B-
What we really care about is the finale, The Other Shoe. Leeard didn’t like that Jenna picked Matty, but Ern did. Jenna pining for Jake at the end was unexpected. We thought she’d be pining for Matty after making a smarter choice (smarter on paper anyway). Ern likes the idea of Tamara and Jake together for a while. Not forever, but for a while. We’re pretty sure not many other people have that opinion. Leeard sure hates it. Leeard thought the first half of the finale was weird.
The tone of the episode was weird, and it was odd to not have Jenna in the middle of an awkward problem. For the record, if one of our kids wanted to stay home from Europe to be with her high school boyfriend, we would force her to go to Europe for her own good. It’s EUROPE. This was a good season. Not as good as season one, but it’s still a quality show, and we’re looking forward to season three. Episode grade: B+
Check out lead actress Ashley Rickards with blonde hair here. Ern kind of likes it and thinks it emphasizes how good looking Rickards really is. Ern isn't sure about the bangs though. Leeard does not approve of the color.
