I am now officially back on the Go On bandwagon. There are a lot of great things to talk about so let’s get started. First off we have the main storyline which is Owen needing to get out of the house. Ryan and Owen start playing Halo together which is awesome because I am a huge fan of the franchise, but Owen’s mother has some very different feelings on the matter. In order to get Owen out of the house Ryan hired him as an intern to work at K-Ball. Being an intern mostly involved playing Halo and meeting Chris Bosh which was funny to me. However, Owen isn’t ready to get serious with his life and ends up quitting on his job. Ryan gets in trouble with Owen’s mom and realizes that there is a very specific role that he must fill. Owen is trying to get over the fact that his brother has been in a coma and is missing out on an older brother figure. After some sick pranks, Ryan starts to fill that role and we get to see a very nice relationship develop between the two which is something I have been looking forward to since the pilot. The other story taking place revolves around Yolanda who is played by Suzy Nakamura. The goal of the support group is to eventually graduate once you are truly over your loss and Yolanda is supposedly over the fact that she was left at the altar. However, Yolanda realizes at the last-minute that she is not ready and is too embarrassed to say otherwise to a very excited Lauren. We see the group attempt to aid Yolanda as friends, but things get tedious and we see Yolanda too stubborn to come back. Luckily the group comes to mend ties and we don’t lose one of our recurring characters.
Current Opinion of the Show:
I am very happy to see a well-rounded episode after the last two disappointed me. We get major serious development for two characters, a nice guest appearance by Chris Bosh who is one of my favorite basketball players, references to one of my favorite video game franchises, and some good comedy in both stories. I am back on the bandwagon and look forward to seeing the next episode.
