What I’m Watching: Four Weddings and a Funeral

Four Weddings and a Funeral: Season 1, Episode 8 “Game Night” (B-)

This show is getting sappier, and it’s also including some pretty absurd developments. Ainsley isn’t terribly perceptive, but it’s still a stretch to think to believe that she would somehow perceive that Maya had a crush on Marcus, her colleague who she so clearly hates and who hates her back just as much. The game night was a silly excuse to bring everyone together, with Marcus, Andrew, and Bryce all showing up because they were invited by someone because of their feelings about another that had yet to be properly expressed. It seemed like Tony was just being a jerk to Andrew, and the revelation that he doesn’t have his papers and his potential boyfriend is sponsoring a bill that might get him kicked out of the country helps to explain some of his hesitation in that department. I like that Bryce shut the door when Ainsley came to deliver a big speech largely comprised of insults, and something tells me he won’t give up. Kash and Maya have gotten very close recently, and knowing that she had to show up at the wedding is a good sign for their relationship and a bad sign for the future fury that Ainsley will evidently express if her reaction to her even going to his show was any indication. It’s a wonder Kash held onto his job this long, and hopefully his father can accept his new choices in life. Marrying Maya down the road will certainly help. Zara’s Nosecrets board game was indeed a flop, but it’s nice that she and Craig will soon be welcoming a baby into the world – a plot twist not spoiled by this show’s title!
