What Did You Think of 2-6?

We want to know what you think of the introduction of two important DGL characters in "When Push Comes to Love," Monica Richter and Blanche Kopek. Along with your thoughts on those characters, let us know what your thought about the different things that went on in this show. Here's some questions to get you thinking!
  • What do you think of the character of Blanche Kopek?
  • What about Monica? Is she at her scheming best in this show?
  • Do you think Brooke is likeable and relatable in this episode?
  • Is Tiffany humorous in this show? Do you think she's meaner than she was in "The Cheater"?
  • In what ways is Justin and Lauren's reponse to Tiffany and to her teasing of Brooke commendable? In what ways is their reaction not good?
  • Who do you think it would be harder to show love to: Ms. Kopek or Tiffany Richter?
  • Does Haley and Timmy's side-story work well to show the theme of loving others as it relates to siblings?
  • Do you find Mrs. Morrison overly sentimental in this show, or is she just a realistic example of a caring mother?
  • Do you think Grace's applying the story of Cinderella to Brooke's situation is memorable or cheesy?
  • In the final scene of this episode, Mrs. Morrison mentions the "domino effect" that Brooke has on her younger siblings. Do you take enough care to be a good example to your siblings?

Questions About 2-5 "Whine Not"

We'd love to get your thoughts on this weekend's DGL episode, "Whine Not." Here's a few questions to aid in your reviewing!
  • What adjectives would you use to describe Haley's whiny attitude: realistic, funny, irritating?
  • What do you enjoy about the storyline with Brooke searching for a job?
  • Do you think that Grace's refusal to complain about her blindness is a good example to Haley, or do you think Haley learns her lesson by herself?

Enter SceneWhat? and Review "The Cheater"!

We're waiting for your entries into our latest SceneWhat? competition! Take a look at some of the season three episode descriptions if you need to, then submit your answer!
Next podcast we'll be discussing "The Cheater," an episode which introduces two new characters: Tiffany Richter and Freddy Falstaff. We'd love to hear your thoughts on these characters and the themes of the show.
  • Do you like the character of Tiffany in her debut episode?
  • Did the scenes with Freddy Falstaff make you laugh? Do you wish that Freddy had been in more episodes?
  • Cheating is a lesson which can be presented in a very trite manner. Do you think "The Cheater" managed to bring across the theme in a unique way? Have you ever been in a situation like either Mr. Morrison or Justin were in?
Please get your reviews to us by 2PM Monday!

And, for those of you who were just as confused as Tiffany was regarding Justin's report about Andrew Wyeth, Wyeth was a famous American realist painter in the 20th century, widely acknowledged as one of the best U.S. painters of his time. He received the Congressional Gold Medal in 1988 and the National Medal of Arts in 2007. He is most famous for his painting Christina's World, which depicts his neighbor Christina Olson (you'll remember that Justin mentions the Olson paintings, as he was going to be focusing on the relationship between Wyeth and the Olsons in his report).
