What I'm Watching: Carpoolers

Carpoolers: Season 1, Episode 9 "The Handsomest Man" (D)

I find it truly difficult to believe that Cindy, who does everything with her husband, would not be there for Dougie when his beloved cast together. I guess for some reason Allison Munn was not available for this episode, but Dougie's plotline should have been scrapped and saved for Cindy's return. Not all four of these guys need to have something going on every episode: point in fact, Gracen this episode. Why Marmaduke gets more screentime than a good portion of the foursome eludes me yet this episode he finally gets something fun to do (his best plotline yet, by far). The handsomest man gimmick gets a bit old but it is entertaining for a minute or two. This is where the similarity to "Cavemen" kicks in - some of this stuff might be funny as a commercial or a short but in full series form it is not so great.
