The second episode (probably actually the third, but the second one we caught) happened to be My Brother's Keeper, which seems to be widely accepted as one of the best Danny Phantom episodes ever, and we have a hard time disagreeing. I like seeing the relationship between Danny and Jazz. We had a really easy time relating with Danny, too, especially in exchanges like this:
Jazz: You're just not going to listen to me, are you?
Danny: Nope. *satisfied smile*
And so we definitely felt some tender mercies. I wonder if there might have been some subtle hinting, too, because the next episode they showed (yup! there was another one) was one of the ones where Danny remembers that he does, in fact, love his dad. But I'm still like, "Steve's not our dad. This doesn't apply." Athena suggests that it might apply to Mom, considering our current situation with the IRS, but then they should have shown Maternal Instincts, because Nickelodeon really cares about the two of us specifically. And now Athena's pointing out that Danny's mom doesn't mess things up like Jack does. Not that we think Mom's incompetent, just that we think it would be nice if she would help us fix the problem, since this time it really is her responsibility.
Anyway, after Danny Phantom, we turned to While You Were Out and it was an episode we had only seen half of, in which they were building one of the coolest tree houses of all time. And thus we spent most of our afternoon in front of the TV. And then we went to Enrichment, which mostly involved, in our case, supervising children as they decorated sugar cookies. It was actually pretty nice, but we came home tired. And despite that I've still typed up a fair-lengthed entry. But the continuation of the Steve saga will have to wait until tomorrow.
Tonight I'm thankful for Jasmine Fenton, mountains, peanut butter, Everwood (when it's being good), and kitties swallowing their medicine.
