What I’m Watching: B Positive

B Positive: Season 2, Episode 10 “S'mores, Elvis and a Cubano” (B+)

I do agree that, as both Drew and Norma have pointed out, it’s interesting that Gina keeps bringing up Hannah, and I like that it’s a supporting and recurring plot point that might end up being more significant down the road when Drew stops his traveling lifestyle. Harry turned out to be a predictably inflexible companion, someone who didn’t enjoy Drew’s humor as he had to pass by the slim space in the kitchen and was equally unenthusiastic about his desire to make stops. They rerouted from Florida to Wisconsin pretty quickly after Harry made his priorities clear, and it was nice to see Drew decide to show up there to support Harry even after he flew on his own to do it by himself. Harry’s openness to making a tourist stop on the way home was also a positive development, and I imagine he may have a somewhat more optimistic outlook when he returns home, even if he’s still in mourning over the loss of his longtime partner. Spencer asking Bette out again helped make that storyline decently appealing, and though it has many double entendres, it’s still rather PG-rated since it’s all innuendo. I was delighted to see Katie Finneran, who will soon be appearing in a much more dramatic role on “The Gilded Age,” as Gina’s sister Natalie, who expressed anger at Gina thinking that her vocal chords surgery was a scam but then revealed a miraculously healed singing voice when she came through the money and joined her onstage for a duet.
