What I’m Watching: Franklin and Bash

Franklin and Bash: Season 2, Episode 7 “Summer Girls” (B+)

I’m glad to see that the summer associates aren’t fully taking over this show, but, instead, they’re filtering in slowly to either help or to stir up trouble. Damien was extremely awkward around Elisa the entire time, both when he was trying to hide the fact that they knew each other from her past job and when he was trying to hide the fact that he really liked her. Sleeping with her was a bad decision no matter where her career path takes her, but Damien really stepped in it when he ended up having to offer her a full-time job rather than fire her. It will be good for him to have a woman in his life, so long as he’s not breaking the rules by being with a summer associate in his own firm going forward. Jared and Peter’s exploits in military court weren’t nearly as comical as might be expected from this duo, and Hannah also played a productive role in assisting their defense. Forcing the captain into speaking up to reveal her actions and defend them was smart, and it’s hard to blame Jared or Peter for anything during that trial. Hannah deleting the file on her computer is big, and maybe that means that Jared and Peter won’t have to worry about being ousted after all. Pindar’s daytime drive to get the fancy knife he broke repaired was a hilarious subplot, due mainly to the fact that he got pulled over for going seven miles an hour and for having a license that had expired five years earlier, and also to Stanton’s serious defense that managed to annoy the judge into letting Pindar off.
