What I’m Watching: Casual

Casual: Season 1, Episode 7 “Home” (B+)

It’s so interesting to see Alex in his current predicament since I’d imagine that, in any other case, he would be beyond thrilled to go hunting for another woman to partake in a threesome with him and his very attractive girlfriend. The problem is that he wants Emmy all to himself, and she’s not budging at all on her connection to Jake even though she knows how much it bothers him. I do love that Alex brought Emmy and their new friend to Leo’s house, giving him the night of his life while Alex found himself feeling useless as a fourth wheel. Valerie’s date with Michael actually went pretty well, though the news that Laura was the star of a sex tape sent her gunning for the clueless Emil, who was ultimately smart enough to figure out that Laura was the one who recorded it. Laura was so hung up on Michael and the fact that he wasn’t responding to her text that she couldn’t do anything else with her friends, and that was the unfortunate development that led to her ill-advised decision to go to Michael’s house and then walk in when he didn’t answer the door. Shouting at Michael that he was supposed to sleep with her instead was intense, and he responded exactly as he should have, though there were definitely indicators that he was behaving as he knew he probably shouldn’t be. It’s going to be very tough for Valerie and Laura to get back to a good place, and I suspect that Valerie is going to be more apologetic even though she couldn’t have known that Laura was interested in her teacher and wouldn’t have approved of it even if she had.
