What I’m Watching: And Just Like That

And Just Like That: Season 1, Episode 4 “Some of My Best Friends…” (B+)

I did enjoy the irony that Charlotte panicked about having Lisa and her husband be the only Black people at their dinner party and then she and Harry ended up being the only white people when they went there instead, resulting in Harry sweating through his suit because he was trying so hard to impress everyone. I would have liked to see Deirdre and her husband Geoff interacting with Charlotte after hse brought that on herself, but I guess that might have to wait for another time. All told, Charlotte did okay under the circumstances. After her son was able to smell how much she reeked of weed, Miranda had a very enlightening and open dinner with her professor who made a reservation at the San Francisco location of the restaurant, and now they’ve gotten very close in a way that’s going to endure far beyond the classroom. It’s sad that this is the last we’ll see of Willie Garson’s Stanford, who has been written out of the show following the actor’s death, and I do wonder whether Anthony is going to move on right away or if his romantic life won’t be in the spotlight. After Carrie’s impulsive decision to sell the apartment, she now has a new friend in the form of realtor Seema Patel, played by Sarita Choudhury, who I recognized right away from her role on “Homeland.” Though she wasn’t as sympathetic as Carrie wanted her to be when she broke the frame, she did call Carrie out on the hurtful comment she had made earlier, which should lead to an honest relationship that might be good for Carrie.
