What I’m Watching: Brockmire

Brockmire: Season 1, Episode 7 “Old Timers Day” (B+)

This was a fun episode, and I had no idea that there’s just one half-hour left this season. Fortunately, this show was renewed for a second season on the day that it first premiered, so it will be back. It seems like Brockmire never liked Joe very much at all, yet even after making a sexual joke about his dead mother and then only making it worse upon learning that she was deceased, Joe was still ready to give him a hug. Brockmire was all about the attention that he got, and despite Jules shaking her head to dissuade him from his crude finale, he still got roaring applause from the crowd, so much so that he didn’t even hear Jules shouting at him. She was so excited about the Cubs game and about the opportunity to talk baseball with giants, but she was relegated to events where women were allowed and mistaken for a prostitute when she did start a good conversation. Charles, on the other hand, took full advantage of being left by himself, bringing a Tinder date to indulge in beer served in the most disgusting form possible: ranch dressing containers that weren’t completely washed. Asking for tips and getting them after some poor sexual performance led him to bravely request a return of services, which might have been nice had a guy not shown up to torch the field while it was happening. Now we have yet another problem for Jules to fix which likely has something to do with Brockmire and his inability and lack of desire to censor himself.
