What I’m Watching: As We See It

As We See It: Season 1, Episode 4 “The Violetini”

Violet’s birthday party was a great opportunity for each of the three roommates to come out of their shells a bit with the assignment to bring a plus one. Harrison had an obvious choice to have AJ come, and it was incredibly heartwarming to see AJ not skip a beat and figure out an incredible way for Harrison to easily travel a great distance without freaking out. It’s really a shame that AJ being at the exercise class meant that one of the people there got concerned about him and Harrison and called the police, which now means that AJ can’t hang out with Harrison anymore. Jack had a much more successful date experience when, after a few rejections, he asked Ewatomi in a lackluster way to come. I love that she tried to feed him lines so that he would engage in conversation, and that she responded to him kissing her by kissing him back and just stressing that he should go for it. Violet was characteristically unappreciative of all of the people who did show up to her party, particularly Douglas and John, and it’s a shame that Selina had a very legitimate excuse not to be there, which prompted Van to lash out at her for not showing up. It’s likely true that Julian just is a flirt interested in sleeping with every woman who works at Arby’s, and hopefully that won’t lead to terrible heartbreak for Violet. At least Mandy has decided that she’s not leaving, and her confiding in Violet about the imperfection of her relationship was the only thing that made her happy.
