What I’m Watching: I’m Sorry

I’m Sorry: Season 1, Episode 7 “Divorce Fantasy” (B+)

I’m thrilled to open this review by confirming the terrific news that this show has been renewed for a second season by TruTV. I don’t imagine it as the time of show that’s being broadly watched simply because of the network it airs on, and so I’m excited that said network has decided to bring it back for another round since I do enjoy it a lot. Leave it to Andrea to have a divorce fantasy despite being happily married, and for her to picture the life of a divorcee as so glamorous and enthralling rather than prone to lead a waitress to being on the verge of tears while serving customers. Andrea is never one to let anything go, and as a result she just had to pry and ask the waitress if she was okay, despite her friend Jennifer’s insistence that she should just leave it be. This was a better showcase for Allison Tolman as Jennifer as she tried to wade slowly back into the dating pool while Andrea was trying to push her all the way in right away. Getting roofied the first night they went out was bad news, and of course Andrea would try to downplay the seriousness and miserable nature of the situation. Martin telling Andrea about his clubbing enthusiasm was a bit random, and he was quite a stickler for owning his idea despite Andrea’s attempts to throw a party for him that might speak to his eccentric new interests. Changing decades turned out to be a great and simple solution, one that made her eyes roll all the way back into her head as she actually got angry with someone and was on the right side of an argument for once.
