What I’m Watching: High Fidelity

High Fidelity: Season 1, Episode 6 “Weird…But Warm” (B+)

I’m definitely pushing for a Rob-Clyde romance, and it was great to see him come in to the store and pretend that he already had each of the records on display. Cherise and Simon eagerly referring to him by the type of pants he was wearing was entertaining, and I’m glad to see they’re on board too. Rob spent most of this episode investing in a different man, so excited to see Liam during his recording session and then to get to go to one of his shows. She was the one who pointed out that he was a rock star and didn’t need to treat whatever was going on between them as a relationship, but he seemed genuinely interested in her. Inviting her to come with him to Mexico was a big deal, and for her to say yes was even more unusual. Telling her that it wasn’t happening anymore at least felt sincere, but it’s going to serve as an important warning for her not to get too attached. After Cherise continued obsessing over the band she wants to form, she gave good chase to the record-snatchers, and she wasn’t happy at all with Rob’s decision to let them borrow what they took. Deciding to leave the show together after Cherise got completely ignored was a good step forward for the two of them, and having them make conversation by suggesting a top five list was perfect. Simon still seems to be interested in the barista, and I suspect he’ll make a move sometime soon.
