What I’m Watching: B Positive

B Positive: Season 2, Episode 14 “Osteoporosis, Benihana and a Slinky” (B)

It’s interesting to see this show evolve and add new elements to its preexisting characters and the new direction of the plot. In this case, that involves giving Norma something to do other than make wisecracks, introducing her even more irritable sister, Irene, played by Rondi Reed, who I last saw as Mrs. Yost in season two of “Why Women Kill.” She’s definitely unpleasant, and echoed Norma when talking to Gina when they both told her not to make their rivalry about her, but I’m not sure how long it’s going to last before it becomes just as grating as Irene is. Asking for better pillows and giving Gina money to go buy them for her is going to require more attention than any other resident, and hopefully Gina won’t be too nice to just endure it. Spencer’s big night with Bette went pretty well, and aside from a brief visit from Gideon when he accidentally pressed the emergency call button, they seem headed in a good direction. Harry setting Drew up with his great-niece was a disaster from the very start, but he managed to escape that nightmare without much trouble. I was glad that Drew just came out with it and expressed his love for Gina as a fact that he was pretty sure she already knew – and reciprocated. But, for whatever reason, she wasn’t ready to say it back, and he responded in a rather annoyed fashion. She’ll surely try, but she won’t be able to hide from this newly awkward relationship forever.
