What I’m Watching: And Just Like That

And Just Like That: Season 1, Episode 8 “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered” (B+)

Since I didn’t watch much of the original show, I don’t know all the intricacies of the marriages that do still exist with the main characters, though a lot of time has also passed, so maybe I’m not as out of the loop as I think I am. Che was rightfully angry to learn that Miranda hadn’t ever clarified that she and Steve did not have an open marriage and that she was just cheating on him, and it’s a good thing Miranda finally spoke to Steve about how she was feeling. He seemed completely blindsided by it and even made jokes about what ended up being the real topic of conversation, but he did express that he didn’t have the fight in him to rally for them as a couple once again. Flying to Cleveland to go update Che on the situation doesn’t sound like a spectacular idea. I enjoyed how shocked Carrie and Miranda were to learn the reason for Charlotte’s bathroom mishap and her defense of her moderately active sex life with Harry. It was a struggle at first, but Charlotte did decently well relating to her daughter after that incident and the discovery of her Finsta. Carrie struggling to deal with her very loud new neighbors was a challenge, and she did come off exactly as she was told she might when she called Jackie for advice. Being greeted by her neighbor’s towel-wearing (at least at first) boyfriend added some liveliness to an episode that had already featured some full-frontal nudity.
