It's a real Throwback Thursday for the Short family this week.
"#TBT: House Destiny Introduction Retirement" looks back to when the characters where at there most memorable and happiest moments. From Jen and Greg faking an engagement to buy a house and then actually get engaged for real. They had to find the ring, thinking that it was fake, in the trash and Greg propose to Jen. We see how the Short family met Tim, and it was quick to love for John, but it ends up learning that Heather is pregnant.
Even the first time both Matt and Colleen had their first "so-called" date when he was waiting for his blind date (that was blind) and had Greg take over for him while he comforts Colleen from a breakup. And seeing John on his last trip as an airline pilot, but when his second pilot talked to him about final landing, John decides to stay up in the air for a while. Trying to talk him down, Joan tells him that she's with him all the way in this journey of retirement, but when he lands he is taken to his boss for what the hell happened in the air.
Hilarious, smart, well-performed performances from the cast, this is one of the best episodes of the show. It doesn't have to be that big, or that small compare to other shows on television. I just enjoyed watching these character's backstories of what led them to where they are at today from buying the house they live in now, to being married with a family, together and retirement. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
You can catch Life In Pieces Thursdays at 9:30/8:30c on CBS.
