coffeekaling asked: yessss omg I agree completely I never liked Ray Romano either but I love him in this role and the way he connects with max and he and Sarah together is so good in my opinion like do you remember their date and how cute they were!?? I hate that they ended their relationship right when it was starting bc I think it was a good fit for Sarah but apparently Jason Ritter (mark) is coming back for some episodes so I'm reaaaally looking forward to that
YES YES YES Hank was (and I think still is) good for Sarah and Max especially. I like how they introduced Hank. He doesn’t have everything together - much like Sarah - but he still needs to care and provide for his family, but he still struggles (much like how we saw Sarah struggle when Drew and Amber were still in high school).
YES THEIR DATE. Ugh, so freaking adorable. I’m sad that we didn’t get to see more of how they were together. Like their actual moments of happiness on a lazy Sunday afternoon. They both kind of folded. I think that they maybe rushed things (another thing they both have in common) because Hank was moving but I also think it means a lot that he stayed in town!
Maybe the show is going down the path that Hank was good for Sarah during that particular moment of her life and Hank did get her through something. Hank just understands Sarah. They balance each other out even though they are very similar. They’ve both been through divorces. They both have kids. Hank has been there for Sarah (and the Bravermans) and Sarah has been there for Hank (when dealing with his daughter and his possible Asperger’s). And when Mark left I was devastated because I loved them together. And when Hank was introduced I wasn’t sure I was completely on board but when he started bonding with Max I knew I was done for. And when Sarah had to make a choice between Mark and Hank I was wanting her to stay with Hank, which is something I never thought I would have wanted for Sarah because Jason Ritter is a fucking heartthrob and I love his face!
Hank fit in so well with the Bravermans with all of his awkwardness and everything. I’m sorry, is it apparent that I love Hank??
I’m also really looking forward to Mark’s return!!! Sarah completely broke his heart and yes they were in love but they weren’t quite on the same level. Although it might be different now because Drew and Amber aren’t in school anymore. The kids having to see their young and future step-father really put a toll on Sarah’s and Mark’s relationship. Sidenote: I remember during the Christmas episode before they broke up, the family was skeptical about Mark being in the photos and Sarah was all like, no we’re forever, or something like that and I felt dread.
