    I’ve seen most of the episodes…I think.  This is one I tend to binge watch.  It’s fun watching as they’re growing up.  Family dynamics are great.  Kind of ironic that I’ve been talking about overprotective parents and on the show JJ’s Mom is struggling with stepping back as he’s gaining more independence.

      That’s what I like most about this season. As JJ is getting closer to college and becoming more self-sufficient, his Mom is struggling to let go because so much of her identity is being his Mom and caregiver. I like how the writers are exploring this dynamic. I really enjoyed the episode when JJ goes to a Halloween party, and Zach Anner reprises his role as the cool, older guy in a wheelchair.
