What I’m Watching: B Positive

B Positive: Season 2, Episode 8 “A Dog, a Mousse and a Bat” (B-)

This show continues to be decently entertaining, but it’s getting harder and harder to take it seriously at all. Bette taunting Spencer with a racy photo of herself shows that romance isn’t dead and that those light plotlines are going to continue to be featured, while we get the more serious and heartwarming elements of a relationship that has lasted much longer. Harry and Meredith’s fifty-fifth anniversary celebration turned out to be very nice with the fancy French dinner, which Bert somehow managed to cook up despite the fact that he had a bar he regularly went to every morning at 8am. After Meredith gave Gina a family heirloom, she had to race off to try to be there for Norma after nearly letting her down, and unfortunately that meant she got arrested, a development that at the very least is going to bring Drew back from the trip that hasn’t gotten him very far. Driving just twelve miles wasn’t a surprise, but the fact that he thought anyone was going to be watching his Instagram Live is a bit more of a stretch. Meeting Hannah and hitting it off right away seemed too good to be true, and it was, since she stole his money before he woke up. This life on the road definitely isn’t for him, and it appears that he’s going to have turn around and be there for Gina to help her get back on track since she was likely intoxicated when she got pulled over or at least held responsible for the many unpaid tickets she has.
