What I’m Watching: Episodes

Episodes: Season 4, Episode 8 (B)

With just one episode left to go, I sincerely hope that Showtime and its co-producer BBC opt to renew this show and bring it back for a fifth season. There’s obviously plenty of room for it to go places, even if it’s stalling a tiny bit right now. Helen has continued to devolve into a purely jealous person, not hiding her lack of affection for Beverly at any point. Carol, on the other hand, is doing her best to make sure that Helen won’t suspect that she is carrying on a friendship with Beverly, training her assistant not to announce her calls and meeting covertly behind a dumpster. That can’t last long, and it’s hard to see this whirlwind romance that has developed ending any way but poorly when Helen finds out that Carol has been lying to her. That will mean that either they’ll keep working together awkwardly or Helen will follow her predecessors and find her office once again unoccupied. Things are looking up in one sense or Merc, whose show is going to make it to air, but it comes with the crucial caveat of being hosted by his number one nemesis, the one and only Matt LeBlanc. Matt isn’t doing too well these days, and having to show his beach house to Stoke, who is doing incredibly well for himself, definitely hurt. It’s rare that Matt is the most aware and honest person in the room, and it’s quite telling of the fact that he knows he doesn’t have many options left to stay afloat.
