What I’m Watching: Grace and Frankie

Grace and Frankie: Season 4, Episode 2 “The Scavengender Hunt” (B+)

What a horribly impatient bunch unwilling to indulge these expectant parents in their little game. Only Coyote, and Saul to an extent, got excited about the clues, and then the fact that the cake didn’t actually indicate the gender of the baby disappointed everyone. We did see some productive developments for all of the characters throughout this episode on other fronts, however. Robert made the decision that he’s too old to be running around protesting things every night, and Saul made a similar discovery when he came home unable to move his back without extreme effort. Barry took a job working for Brianna’s sworn nemesis and failed to pick up on the fact that she didn’t want him to take it, but I suspect that, with her sarcasm and generally emotionless nature, it won’t end up being too problematic for them. I can’t say the same for Frankie and Jacob, who are sure to have a strain put on their relationship due to their geographical separation. While I do find Lisa Kudrow’s Sheree to be irritating, I’m glad that there’s most to the story and that she’s determined to get Frankie to like her since she’s not stupid and she has noticed her obvious disdain. I’m still a fan of a Coyote-Mallory relationship, and therefore having Mallory find a great use for the eggs that he couldn’t fit in his tiny refrigerator before accidentally driving forward into Mitch’s fancy car was helpful in bringing them closer with this little secret.
