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 10 “Sunrise, Sunset” (B)

It’s clear that calling David a groomzilla would be a colossal understatement, and I assume that Patrick wasn’t present at the tasting because he wanted to leave it to the partner that he knew would care much more than he did. He would probably have realized that Johnny wasn’t too thrilled about the price tag of the extraordinary lavish menu he had selected, but his absence meant that Johnny could only look to Stevie for sympathy as he failed repeatedly to communicate just how over his budget it really was. His enthusiasm for the tenderloin didn’t help since that also prevented him from saying what he really wanted to. It’s nice that, after so much sarcasm and lack of interest from Stevie, she was the one who, after having read his book, suggested that they buy a whole bunch of motels so that they could actually make this enterprise profitable. It’s no surprise that Moira wouldn’t have put together that she was killed off her show in a series of truly humiliating ways, and that it took Alexis drowning in misery and binge-watching the terrible series to open her eyes to it. There were two very notable guest stars both known for plenty of roles, Saul Rubinek from “Hunters” and “Warehouse 13” and Victor Garber from “Legends of Tomorrow” and “Alias.” Both actors, who appeared on the Emmy ballot but didn't get nominated, were a bit over-the-top in their performances here, but it was nice to see familiar faces. Moira’s story of victory wasn’t quite as satisfying given that it didn’t end up happening, but at least she seemed pleased with how it went.
