What I’m Watching: The Bisexual (Season Finale)

The Bisexual: Season 1, Episode 6 (B+)

It doesn’t appear that this show has been renewed for a second season yet, which is a shame since I really would like to see more of it. A very nice morning with Sadie and Leila turned much more complicated when Sadie revealed that she was trying to get pregnant. Ultimately, it seems that having a baby with Sadie is something that she wants. Gabe searching for the identity of her donor was awfully easy, and I think Leila took her selection of an Iranian man as a compliment even if it hit her as a shock at first. Having Ruby get a call that her blog was bought by Vice in the middle of their launch party was pretty obnoxious timing, and now Sadie and Leila are going to have to do just as much professional rebuilding as they do in their personal relationship. Gabe proposing to Francisca when she was packing up because her visa was expiring was far from romantic, as was her “sure” reply. He got so mad at his sister and reamed her out for trying to set him up with other women, but then Francisca shrugged off his concerns to remind him that it’s not a real marriage and they didn’t even have to tell anyone, which was obviously not what he had planned. Leila gave Gabe a hard time by joking that his struggle was exactly like that of a Middle Eastern lesbian, but then they had a truly sentimental moment at the end with him putting his head in her lap. Their dynamic is just as compelling as Leila and Sadie are. Bring on more of this show!

Season grade: B+
Season MVP: Desiree Akhavan as Leila
