*Alright! An interesting episode because it's about Jeremy and Zach graduating!
*Jeremy is telling Amy that he thinks he gets himself up in mornings, he never remembers Amy waking him up even though he knows she does. Amy thinks he's being stupid. I know what he means. People don't always remember the first thing that happens in the morning. Amy doesn't seem to get it.
*They're having dinner. Hey, we've seen this scene before! Not the same conversation, but the same dinner. It was when Molly got an F on a test and Jeremy spelled out "Senior" for Matt. This time they're talking about college. Matt says something about it. Jer says "Okay Mr. College"....then Jeremy says out loud that he crossed the line and that was way too much of a rebel... I think Jeremy has said worse things than that to Matt over history ;-)
*Amy explains that Jeremy will graduate, but they're not sure about Zach. Cue the forced plot for the next 28 minutes! Will Zach graduate????? Yes he does! The people with the show should realize that people will still watch without these forced fake plots.
*Zach says he doesn't want to go to University...by the sounds of his bad grades that's a smart decision, Zach :)
*Matt announces that he's considering renting a house near Ron and Peg and that will be for Jeremy and Zach to live, their bachelor pad. A couple of thoughts. We know that didn't happen, but since I consider myself in a "normal" situation financially for most people my age (a bit older than Jer and Zach) I can't relate, but hey, no wonder they're going to be rich. They're already rich and even in this situation that doesn't actually happen, Matt is basically going to pay for their living arrangements. You'd think they have so much money and they're 19 that they might start paying for themselves, but hey, what's another house to Matt Roloff? :)
*Molly is doing some serious snarking at Jeremy and Zach. She grins to the camera that there is no way she can see Jeremy and Zach living on their own. They wouldn't live. Haha. She says they are way too babied at home. It's probably true, but Molly needs to be careful, sure she seems more responsible and gets better grades, but she is spoiled too...don't get too holier than though there sister girl :)
* Amy gets back to talking about waking Jeremy and Zach up in the mornings. That seems to be a theme this week. They show Amy trying to get them up. As usual, they look like a couple of dead bodies placed on their beds. There is a leg sticking out from under the covers of Jeremy's bed. Zach usually has some kind of conversation with Amy during this stuff. Amy tells Zach it's astounding that she still needs to get them up at 19. Oh come on, we all can see that Amy loves her role.
*Amy remarks that she doesn't think the twins realize just how much she still does for them. That is probably true too, but who is to blame for that? Amy! What kid isn't going to choose to be lazy if Mom will do it for them?
*Amy is in a store buying stuff for the graduation party...the graduation party that we saw a week ago or two weeks ago....thanks TLC out of order programming and editing.
*Portland Community College, the Rockcreek campus! Thanks Spirits! How about we all give Spirits some props for having the scoop way back when :)
*Amy, Molly, Jer and Zach are at PCC to register. Jeremy and Zach are bored and look like they don't want to be there. Amy complains that they didn't come prepare. She gives them the usual lecture that we've seen many times about them forgetting their ID and stuff like that.
*They're filling out forms...this won't be pretty, I have a hunch! :) Hmm, Jeremy says "Social Ins number?...Unknown"....
*Zach doesn't know how to spell "Oregon"...Molly helps him. Wow this whole episode is sure throwing Jeremy and Zach to the wolves, isn't it? Could it make them look any worse? First the part about Amy waking them up. Then more about her waking them up at 19 and the speech about how much she does for them. Now showing them struggling to fill out forms...
*Back to snarky Molly! She is full of zingers tonight against Jer and Zach. She says it's funny that here they are enrolling in Community College and Amy is rushing around filling out their forms for them. Is Molly a poster on this or another LPBW board? She sounds like she's getting material from fan comments. j/k
*I heard Jeremy say the word "Engineering" to Amy when filling out the form. I guess that's what Jeremy is majoring in?
*They're still on the forms. Jer doesn't know what to write for a question about if he wants to earn a degree or his goal at PCC? He says he doesn't want to be at PCC forever, it's just..."Opps, I got lazy"....
*Okay, I know there is a great divide among people about me and my fellow reviewer Rap and it usually isn't friendly :). I have my fans and haters and Rap has her fans and haters, but I do have to point out that Rap was right about that one. I think that's exactly what Rap said when it was known that they were going to PCC and why. Who would have thought that Rap and Jeremy would agree?? haha.
*Zach blurts out that one of his teachers said she doesn't know if he will graduate. Yawn. Contrived plot. A week before graduation and he doesn't know yet? I don't believe it.
*They're talking to someone from PCC about their plans, surprising Jeremy defers to Zach and tells Zach to speak for him...Zach says something about wanting to eventually go to a 4 year university. Jeremy looks embarrassed. The PCC guy says that's fine because most of their credits are transferable to most 4 year colleges/universities. That makes the Roloffs happy.
*They go on a tour of PCC. Amy mentions maybe she'll take a photography class and wouldn't it be funny if she went to college with her boys....you know, I could SO see Amy doing that just to be around them! :) Jeremy says they would have probably been in the same class. So from what I take from this show, Jeremy is taking engineering and photography.
*Fashion note, I don't know much about the soccer team or the player, Jer's #19 Messi (no messy room jokes!) soccer jersey, but it's snazzy. I like it. Jeremy looked very bored or very laid back during this whole visit.
*Amy's parents are at the farm. Amy's mother Pat asks Zach about PCC. He says he likes it and says it was laid back and like a public school. She sings the praises of community colleges and says Zach will like it.
*Friends are arriving for the graduation party.
*Amy tells her friend Amy from Rob & Amy, that Molly has her college plans already planned. The other Amy can't believe she has planned 3 years ahead. Hm, no pressure on Molly...they're at Jer and Zach's grad party and Amy is talking about Molly being the family hope basically :)
*Amy is looking at old pictures of Jeremy and Zach as babies and threw the years. Cute pictures.
*Amy starts talking about how she's been thinking about what went wrong with Zach through the years because he's smart, but his grades are terrible and tanked.....no mention of the Elephant in the room....how about being a TV Star? Yahhoooo to Jeremy for not falling as far as Zach through the TV fame.
*They're preparing for the graduation party, still going on about how they don't know if Zach will graduate. Oh come on. Drop the fake plot. They know!
*I saw this one coming...as a graduation present, Amy arranged for a pro soccer team, the Portland Timbers to come to the party, so much for a modest watch or something. You just knew they were going to go all out for Jeremy and Zach's party to give them the biggest and best party and present ever. I don't really care, but being honest, this kind of stuff does kind of drive the point home how much the Roloffs have changed from the beginning of the show when they seemed just like real people. Now sports teams comes to their parties...oh yeah, I can relate to that...not. But getting over that part of it, the twins seemed to like it. Jer seems especially happy about it.
*They play a game against the Timbers, did anyone notice that even for a game against pro players or semi pro (they're in the league just below the MLS and will be moving up to the major league soon I hear) players, Jeremy is playing in bare feet? For a guy who has said he has so many shoes, he sure seems to go barefoot a lot.
*The Portland Timbers give Zach and Jeremy their own jerseys. They look really cool. I like that color of green.
*Amy goes to Faith Bible High School to find out if Zach will graduate. He got an F, but his GPA is still high enough to graduate.
*Amy also says that Jeremy made honors. Jeremy made honors? Considering Jeremy has made it no secret he doesn't prepare for school at all and his "Senior" answer to Matt about why he doesn't do homework...the honors thing seems really weird to me. They don't really make a big deal out of it so that adds to the weirdness of it...But hey, I like Jeremy, so I'll go back into rabid Jer fan mode and say "Congratulations Jeremy! We knew you could do it! :)
*Amy says she is so glad that Zach and Jeremy will graduate together because they've went to school together their whole lives and it would have been sad if Zach couldn't graduate.
*Matt gives a typical Matt Roloff - end of episode speech :) He says for most of high school they thought Zach was alright and thought Jeremy was the one to worry about, but in the end Zach was the one who was in a sticky situation, but when all was said and done, he buckled down and made the grade.
*There is a preview for next week, the actual graduation. OH NO! The horrible season theme is back. Amy says it's graduation and Matt is going to be late for the graduation. She's there and wonders if Matt is even going to see his sons graduate. I don't know if this is fake drama or not because I remember from the senior photographs that there were pictures of Amy with the photographer, but not Matt, but who knows.
End of episode. All in all, I really liked this episode! A lot to talk about. The way LPBW should be. About Jeremy and Zach, instead of the marriage stuff. It was kind of a hatchet job on Jer and Zach with the emphasis on Amy babying them the form filling out scene.
