What I’m Watching: B Positive (Season Premiere)

B Positive: Season 2, Episode 1 “Love, Taxes and a Kidney” (B)

It’s fun to have this show back, and nice to see that Drew going under to get his new kidney didn’t result in anything negative. He was, naturally, quite stressed, and had quite the entertaining nightmare about Dr. Baskin and Gina casually lobbing around the kidney and commenting on how much blood there was. Now that he’s not in dialysis, Drew is more awkward than ever, treating his new lease on life has something that has only happened to him and that no one else has been through before. Trying to sell back his burial plot was a humorous subplot, and I like how he stepped in to pretend that he was the funeral director so that he could pawn it off on two unsuspecting customers. Wanting to hang out with Eli and Jerry didn’t need to be uncomfortable, but what’s going to be a bit harder for everyone to digest is that he has finally realized his feelings for Gina. She’s typically oblivious but also doesn’t see him that way, so it’s going to be an adjustment. Gideon seems ready to help even if he wasn’t prepared for Drew to show up at his house with no warning having somehow known his address. Gina inheriting $24 million seems like a bit of a stretch, and I hope that won’t lead to any overly exaggerated storylines that come as a result of her newfound wealth. I feel like even a single million would have been enough to inspire her to do crazy things.
