What I’m Watching: I’m Sorry

I’m Sorry: Season 1, Episode 6 “Too Slow” (B+)

I’d never accuse Andrea of trying to be politically correct, but naturally she’d want to be appropriately polite to the only lesbian couple at Amelia’s school – the same way she’d be to any people regardless of their sexual orientation. I immediately recognized Lizzy Caplan as one half of the monster couple, who initially seemed like they might just be a bit more lax with their parenting style, but after they encouraged their son hitting, they completely destroyed a random employee just for doing his job, it was clear that they were terrible people. I love that Andrea was offended when they said that she and Mike were uptight, even though it got them out of having to hang out with them anymore. We hadn’t seen much of Nelson Franklin from “New Girl” and “Veep” as David previously, but he took on a more substantial role in this episode as Andrea told her mom that he was gay and then met with him, expecting him to officially come out to her. The news that he’s dating his roommate’s girlfriend is utterly inconsequential for this show as a whole, but I suspect that this isn’t the last we’ll see of him and hear of this. Andrea hitting the car in front of her because she got distracted trying to take a picture of the woman dressed in all pink was pretty ridiculous, and she’s never one to lose an argument willingly, as evidenced by her forcing Amelia to come sit around during the dance classes she didn’t want to go to after committing to them.
