Synopsis: Jessica and Chester continue to have marital troubles; Jodie gets to see and fight for his daughter; Burt and Mary have to deal with the fallout of his alien abduction; and Eunice, Corinne, Dutch, Danny, and Billy each have their own relationship woes.

Reaction: This season starts using even more outlandish story lines than the possessed baby of last season. Some work, and others just get weird.

Personal Rating: 7/10
