Emmy Catch-Up: Schitt’s Creek

Every year, I watch the six submitted episodes of every series I don’t regularly watch that’s up for one of the Emmy series prizes. This year, I’m getting a jump start to check out the entire season of some of most high-profile shows I didn’t watch when they originally aired.

Schitt’s Creek: Season 6, Episode 6 “The Wingman” (B)

The buzz really is increasing for Moira’s movie, and she actually presented herself decently during the television interview, even showing up her daughter by commenting how no one could hear what she was saying since she wasn’t wearing a microphone. Even though her mother is inarguably a handful, Alexis is doing a decent job of turning what’s evidently a terrible movie into a potential success. Her brief conversations with Ted haven’t exactly been substantive, and she’s sort of laughed off the lack of sophistication and luxury that defines his current existence up to this point. He was correct to point out that she would absolutely hate it there, but I think him coming up with the idea felt like him saying he didn’t want her there even though it was an easy out since she was considering the same end result given the trajectory of her career. I enjoyed how both Patrick and David responded to Jake commenting on Patrick’s lips and David introducing Patrick as his boyfriend, and them running into Stevie at his place was confrontational and entertaining. Johnny had a chance to loosen up for a bit in his lackluster attempt to get Bob to forget about his relationship and give Ronnie a break from hosting him, and all that ended up happening was riling up another bar patron and unintentionally setting Roland up for multiple quips about his unsuccessful romantic past. It’s good to see him in action for a change, embracing more of his life-learned wisdom.
