What I’m Watching: Episodes

Episodes: Season 2, Episode 3 (B+)

This episode was entertaining because, unlike those that came before it, it was structured around one single event, which drew everyone’s attention and led to some rather hilarious side conversations. Jamie getting the news while in the middle of an untoward act with Matt was quite a way to start, though he made it considerably worse by positing that she continue doing what she had been doing before they got the call. Beverly and Sean’s assistant is truly amusing, and I’m surprised that she even managed to get something right amid all of her constant requests to leave for the day. Matt’s enthusiasm about getting in on whatever Beverly and Sean were doing for Merc resulted in some less than considerate comments about one charity that helps homeless people get tattoos removed and another that does something involving Canadian geese. Morning’s accidental remark to Beverly that she had been in Sean’s bedroom produced expected awkwardness, though Beverly seemed more upset by the notion of never being with Sean again than she did by the actual act. I’m glad that she found out about Matt’s infidelity as well since it’s always fun to hear him try to justify his adulterous actions. Though he initially seemed upset about his father’s passing, Merc is just the kind of man who would interrupt the rabbi at his funeral to make – not just take – a call about Matthew Broderick so that he can snatch him up before another network does, which may or may not jeopardize the future of “Pucks.”
