What I’m Watching: Council of Dads

Council of Dads: Season 1, Episode 8 “Dear Dad” (B)

Not much happens on this show to any one person without it affecting everyone else, though I guess Robin’s big romantic move hasn’t yet been shared with either the council or her children. She did hold out long enough, and even resisted his attempt at a platonic activity like bowling before eventually showing up at his house to tell him that she was finally in. Anthony’s news, however, didn’t stay secret for long, and Luly actually took it considerably better than expected. Meeting with her birth mother was a smart step, and writing a letter to Scott was also a good idea. Putting it up on her blog may not have been as forward-thinking thanks to its near-immediate publication by the Savannah Gazette, which will ensure that her siblings find out about it before she or Robin have a chance to tell them. Savannah and Las Vegas really aren’t very close to each other, but this group seems to travel that route with ease, which has apparently prompted Theo to consider getting his GED and moving there to go to cooking school. I’m glad that Larry is making some headway with his family, and he’s not the only one making a difficult connection. Oliver and Peter’s adoption situation seemed far too perfect to be true, and it turns out it was, since she was indeed wonderful but also sick with an untreatable, incurable disease. I think that will mean that she’ll want to be involved somehow in raising her child with Oliver and Peter, though it could also complicate her desire to give her child up to someone else.
