Amanda Seyfried is a television and movie actress. She was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Les Miserables in 2013.
Doug (Thomas Sadoski) comes out of a bedroom in his underwear. Looking around he puts on a zip front sweat shirt on. You can tell he doesn’t live in this very neat apartment.
Beth (Amanda Seyfield) comes out of the bedroom with Doug’s T shirt on.
They had a night of lovemaking, drunk in the process. The couple met in church the night before when their parents renewed their wedding vows. Doug’s father was still married to his mother when he met Beth’s mother. They married and become a new family.
Doug tells Beth that he was struck by her looks since 7th grade.
Both knew they had an attraction for each other. But since they were family they did nothing about it. When the family would have a get-together neither would go. Their feelings for each other effected their relations with others.
Beth roommate Kim is a neat freak. She always brings up the fact that all the things in the apartment are hers.
This is a good show. It gets better when you find out why they are acting the way they do. You get a better understanding why their reactions are the way they are. Great finale scenes.
Thomas is getting better each time I see him. He is an incredible actor.
