Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Raising Hope Was Simply Hilarious! In Tonight’s Episode, The Chance’s Go To A Couple’s Retreat. Sabrina And Jimmy Learn That They May Not Be Compatible. Ultimately, Jimmy And Sabrina End Up Lost In The Woods, Trapped In A Tree, With A Bear Below. Jimmy And Sabrina Are Ultimately Rescued, And They Learn That SInce They Survived A Bear Attack, They Truly Are Compatible. I’ve Been A Fan Of Raising Hope Since The Show’s Humble Beginnings, Nearly 3 Years Ago. Raising Hope  Is A Simple Comedy, That Draws Me In Every Time. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Raising Hope. Watch Raising Hope Live: Tuesday’s At 8/7C. On FOX.

Tonight’s Episode Of Raising Hope Was Hilarious! In Tonight’s Episode, A Social Worker Arrives At The Chance House. The Social Worker Says That Someone Filed A Complaint. The Chances’ Soon Learn That The Complaint Was Filed 20 Years Ago, And It Was Regarding The Safety Of Jimmy, As He Was 5 Years Old, And Crowd Surfing At A Concert. The Social Worker Dismisses This Complaint, But Soon Notices That The Chances’ Have A Dead Bolt Lock, On Maw-Maw’s Bedroom Door. The Social Worker Also Notices That The Chances’ Have Eccentric Methods, To Keep Maw-Maw “Safe”. The Social Worker Claims That This Is Physical Abuse. The Social Worker Gives The Chances A Week To Clean Up, Before She Comes Back. The Social Worker Comes Back, And Commends The Chances’ On Their Efforts. The Social Worker Soon Learns That The Chances’ Used Frightening Exaggerations To Get Maw-Maw To Cooperate. The Social Worker Claims That This Is Mental Abuse. Ultimately, The Social Worker Takes Maw-Maw Into State Custody, And Removes Her From The House. I’ve Been A Fan Of Raising Hope Since The Very Start Of The Show. The Show Is Simple, Yet Highly Hilarious And Entertaining. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Raising Hope. Watch Raising Hope Live: Tuesday’s At 8/7C. On FOX.

Aaron:

I got you covered on The Voice eliminations and if you don’t mind me ranting about it follow me on twitter.

Ok.. I got to rant just a little. Christina letting Jesse.. wft! He was one of my favorites and picks to win it all. Also Lindsey Pavao who I generally disliked all of her performances, sound the exact opposite on her studio recordings, no wonder why she’s still in the show! Check them out on iTunes and compare for yourself.
