What I’m Watching: I’m Sorry

I’m Sorry: Season 2, Episode 5 “Extra Boobs” (B+)

It’s no surprise that Andrea is an extremely awkward patient, though her doctor wasn’t exactly being the epitome of professional when she kept laughing at her underarm situation. She tried to throw Mike under the bus when he made a humorous but definitely inappropriate comment after her recovery, but he wasn’t having any of it and refused to admit to what he had said. Mike is usually much more subdued than Andrea and less prone to make jokes that would be deemed overly colorful, but he got his chance while she was still coming back after the procedure to be the more profane one, which was entertaining. He also refused to let Sharon off the hook when Andrea was piling on about the present nature of her relationship, affirming that he too found it strange. As tends to be the case with looking into your ancestry, Andrea found out some things about her parents’ roots that didn’t make her feel all that great, starting with her father’s casual mention of the fact that he wasn’t actually Greek. His switch to making jokes about being Polish didn’t go over well with her, and that’s before her mom essentially confirmed that her family have been Nazis. Andrea always has big reactions to just about anything, and so the fact that both of her parents were so nonchalant about destroying everything she had always believed made the impact of that news all the more startling. Letting Amelia still present herself as Greek was probably the smart and safe choice.
