What I’m Watching: I’m Sorry

I’m Sorry: Season 2, Episode 6 “The Small of My Back” (B+)

Andrea was on fire in this episode, expressing plenty of passion in every conversation she had, whether it was chastising her father for having sex in the house when Amelia was sleeping over, telling Mike about the sex dream she had about Mr. Castellotti, or recounting both of those unfortunate happenings to her friend Brian, who was all too eager to both digest the information and then tell all the other parents about it. It could have been a lot worse than Amelia telling Andrea in front of Brian that she just wanted to “do it for fun” when she grew up, and it did seem that Andrea left things awfully unresolved when she failed to truly emphasize the adult nature of sex and that it probably wasn’t something she should reference on the playground. I was very excited to see Rose McIver’s name in the credits since I’m a huge fan of the “iZombie” star, whose show returns for its final season in May. I wish that she would have had a bigger role, but at least she got to play it completely straight with Andrea before she finally acted on the information she had all too subtly alluded to and then remained just as emotionless in her response after confirming the affair. In the way that this show has always resembled “Curb Your Enthusiasm” a bit, I enjoyed Martin’s eagerness to let the waiter go through his whole speech about what to order at the restaurant when he had indeed been there before and Andrea seemed totally ready to put in her order before he opened his mouth.
