What I’m Watching: Life in Pieces

Life in Pieces: Season 3, Episode 4 “Testosterone Martyr Baked Knife” (B)

Even if this show is far from perfect, it does still manage to be very entertaining. This Thanksgiving episode was fun because it went into further detail about the same scenes we had already seen with a focus on a new character in each vignette. Greg getting excited about his high testosterone report had humorous results, and it didn’t take long for his acne to flare up and deal a serious blow to his renewed self-confidence. Jen, not usually one to play along, was into the way that he was behaving and was even ready to get behind the acne because it played into a certain fantasy of hers, but that only lasted a short time. Jen didn’t invest much in the Thanksgiving cooking that she was doing with spiritual cook Clementine – smartly relegated to supervising ice only – and Heather, who was more interested in watching TV than actually doing much. Joan’s exploration of other Thanksgiving day activities was amusing, and naturally she’d up doing what she wanted to do in the first place. The last two segments were considerably sillier, with Samantha trying not to reveal that she was high when her parents were also, and Tim slicing his own thumb while trying to cut the turkey while high. Samantha getting up to deliver her inspired speech again without remembering that she had already done it and without realizing that there were much more serious things going on was a funny and fitting way to end an utterly ridiculous half-hour.
