I like Max fine, but Simon seems to be the sort of 'unattainable guy' of romance novels. So I'm not shocked the show is going with this story. For now. Also, Simon is extremely pleasant to look at, and I really enjoy his singing. So I'm glad he's around with something to do.
Now, neighbor boy, I'm glad that Zoey let him down, even if it was with a thud. And I am glad that David's foray into garage bands was apparently just a detour to get us to the point where we could see Andrew Leeds make those incredible faces. Bring on your Dad Band, David!
