What I’m Watching: Conversations with Friends

Conversations with Friends: Season 1, Episode 4 (B+)

Watching so many different shows, it’s sometimes hard to remember what each one is supposed to deliver. I keep expecting that Nick and Frances are going to get caught somewhere, especially since they’re falling asleep naked in bed in a shared space where Melissa or Bobbi could easily find them. But instead we got a serious conversation about how maybe love does have to be conditional and Nick showing up to her room after they texted so they could spend the night together. As Bobbi continues to make light of Frances’ crush and tease her, she’s not reacting well to Frances trying to pull away, suggesting that she wants to stay back and then telling Bobbi later that she should have just come with her. I was intrigued to see a brief exchange between Frances and Melissa, and I think it will be interesting to see if they’re able to find common ground and some way to connect that Bobbi won’t bother to try to investigate with Nick, who she still finds boring and not worthy of her time. Pushing a game where you have to kiss the person next to you didn’t land well with either Frances or Nick, and I’d love to see the other side of this from the perspective of both Bobbi and Melissa, and to see if part of the reason that they’re not noticing that something is going on in because they’re already engaged in their own romance that goes beyond just that kiss that Bobbi mentioned.
