What I’m Watching: Casual

Casual: Season 2, Episode 6 “100 Cows” (B+)

I’m not sure what exactly Alex meant to do by sending Sarah 10,000 cows, but he sure managed to rile things up. While she stopped by to yell at him after ignoring him up until that point, the much bigger problem he created for himself was his newfound relationship with the receptionist. She was very into him and didn’t want to be ignored, but she’s also totally cray, putting $10,000 on his card when he asked her to buy chairs and then disclosing their relationship to human resources and anyone else who would listen after they slept together once. The worst part of all this is that he’s going to seem noncommittal or unenthusiastic when she’s far more into all this and moving things ahead at an unfathomable pace. Valerie had a nice time trying something new and rescuing a mediocre date, and apparently she wants to keep her options open and even double-booked when her would-be suitor didn’t call to put a night on the calendar. Kudos to Aubrey and Laura for compelling two guys who wanted to see girls kiss to kiss each other instead, and it seems that, even though Aubrey isn’t exactly exclusive, this budding relationship is heading in a good direction for the moment. Did anyone else notice that Laura was wearing a Hebrew Coca-Cola shirt throughout this episode? It didn’t have any relevance to the plot; it’s just an interesting unmentioned backdrop occurrence that I’d be curious to know if was intentional on the part of the writers or costume designers.
