What I’m Watching: You, Me, Her

You, Me, Her: Season 4, Episode 5 “Santa Claus Rides Loch Ness Monster into Atlantis!” (B-)

I didn’t find this episode to be terribly worthwhile, mainly because this thurple commits plenty of poly fouls they’re capable of dealing with on their own. Attending this absurdly overpriced seminar with no refunds felt unnecessary, and it was just an opportunity for Jack to realize that Emma is right about some of the issues she always warns them about and for Izzy to panic even more about being an afterthought in their relationship. Being spoken to as someone who would want her own pairing since she could never truly be a part of theirs is a worrisome thought that no one has brought up for a while, and it’s just going to be another reason that she’s going to try to bolt. I enjoyed the opportunity for Carmen and Nina to spend some time together at the impromptu binge night, with Nina blaming Carmen for taking her best friend away as an extension of the suburbs. Lala is being rehabilitated in much the same way that Lori was when she was still a part of the show, and though she definitely talks during the show a lot more than she’s supposed to, she’s growing both on me and seemingly on the residents of the neighborhood as well. It was announced last week that this show will be ending with its fifth season, which to me is totally fine since it’s been on the air a while and is no longer quite as good as it used to be in season one.
