What I'm Watching: Samantha Who?

Samantha Who: Season 1, Episode 4 "The Virgin" (B+)

I am very fond of the flashback snippets which reveal what mean Sam was really like. The one in this episode with her making fun of the boyfriend is especially fun. Samantha seems a bit too naive when deciphering her virgin status, but at least it gives way to the line by Tim Russ which I have been anticipating since it first aired during promos - Sam: "I'm a virgin." Tim Russ: "Yes, ma'am, and I'm a pirate." Gotta love those parents and those friends. A truly stellar ensemble here makes this show better than it might have been. Christina Applegate does a fine job as the lead, but her supporting cast is just as great.
