I was disappointed in Greg this week. He was doing so well, and then he had to act like that.

I was ashamed of Zach for mocking Randi, crying about missing her family. That was a side of him we hadn't seen yet.

I felt bad that they didn't win the challenge. It was a hard one and they came so close!

I liked the idea of switching things up a little, but I didn't like the way they did it. I think there will be a whole new council next week after the elections.

It's only been, what, 28 days? Greg wasn't doing well. He just wasn't showing his stripes. Doing well would imply that he kept his tongue and didn't act like a spoiled rotten bully brat for an extended period of time. Something tells me he gets everything he wants at home.

True enough. He showed that if he wants to he can keep it together. The fact that he is able to and doesn't says a lot about his character. Hopefully he will learn something from watching his actions on the show. I do believe he has potential.

Although I feel Anjay has said some really dumb things during the show (often speaking before thinking), I feel sorry for him. I try to picture myself at that age, trying to do this show. I would have been a wreck. I probably would have just kept my mouth shut the whole time. I was very shy and insecure, and I would have probably said some stupid things now and then too, just out of plain nervousness.

I did not think we would get four new council members. Not what I would have wanted.

The town was going downhill for most of the show imo.

I thought the challenge was a bit tough this week. The mail prize was really great!!!

The late night conversation was a no-no, but listening in was just as bad.

Greg Apologizing was great.

I think Laurel deserved the gold star.

I agree.

Even though Taylor deserved some consequences for not working, I think they did the right thing to let her have her letter from home. From the previews of next week's show, I'm not sure she lives up to her promise though.

I can't remember who (I think yellow/Blaine) put that the TV was invented first, but that was a little hard to believe! I realize all those things were invented before any of them were born, but surely they studied inventions in school.

It might have been DK. He was the last one to finish the challenge.

Another solid episode of Kid Nation.

I thought the idea of this weeks challenge was great.

Taylor though is tough to crack. It was great of the town council to finally force her to not get the prize if they won it.

With it getting down to the final few days in the town the Arcade was the best choice. If they had an extra week or so I would have gone for the books.

Really nice of Sophia to buy all the rest of the books and make her own makeshift library.

The arcade finally made Taylor do some big time work.

The town council was right on the locking up the Arcade until work it done.

Hunter deserved the reward and we are seeing more and more of him on the show now.

Taylor has been driving me nuts, I wonder what her parents think of her behavior?
I knew when they choose the archade they would have to lock it up for a certian amount of time,what kid would want work over playing games.
Can't wait to see what happens when Sophia is left in charge(the new sheriff) looking forward to next week.

It's beginning to seem implausible to me - even more so than some of the other "reality" shows I watch.

I really cannot believe that anyone as intelligent as Taylor seems to be would really say the idiotic things that she says, without being coached. I dunno, maybe she IS that horrible a kid.

And maybe Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton weren't coached and scripted to look as totally ridiculous as they did, too. Just hard to believe.

Taylor's idea of beauty really bothers me. It's okay to kill ugly chickens but not pretty ones? Make-up for animals? I believe the idea that someone or something that is outwardly beautiful is better than someone or something that isn't has been pounded into her head from a very early age. Now it's ugly chickens that should die. Later will it be people?

I think they gave in a little too quickly after Taylor did some work, but at least she did do some.
