What I’m Watching: You, Me, Her (Season Premiere)

You, Me, Her: Season 4, Episode 1 “Triangular Peg, Meet Round Hole” (B+)

It’s always a treat when this show, one of my favorites and one I feel like almost no one knows exists, returns each year. I’m particularly excited to see where things go this year as Emma is extremely pregnant, Izzy is trying to adjust to the idea of the suburbs, and Jack is just trying not to mess things up with either of the women in his life. It’s better not to have Emma off gallivanting in another state while Jack and especially Izzy express just how angry they are with her, and they’re more than capable of getting into trouble together. I like how much Emma is trying to pressure them into not falling into typical truple tropes, and her constantly pointing those out is irritating her two partners greatly, in one case killing the mood when she told them to stay and have sex while she went out. Carmen is getting an increased focus now that Dave has apparently effortlessly achieved literary success on his first try while his wife continues to experience rejection at every turn, and while it’s nice to see her in the spotlight, this does not seem like a productive direction for their relationship. Seeing Nina and Shaun together is a strange sight indeed, though I guess there’s some comfort to be found in the fact that she doesn’t behave any differently towards him or anyone else even though she’s apparently professed affection publicly. Izzy’s rapport with her dad also seems to have gotten to a great place. Things are, it would seem, looking up right now.
