What I’m Watching: I Love That For You

I Love That For You: Season 1, Episode 5 “Daddy’s Lil’ Cookies” (B+)

It’s not going to be easy for Joanna to keep this story going now that Patricia is letting her in to her life in a small way. Having her father come in to pose as her doctor wasn’t a terrible idea since he was able was speak from personal experience of having a daughter who had cancer and then got better, but he wasn’t happy with Joanna that she made him do that, because he had to relive all of the fear that he had then which he had kept hidden from her. Beth Ann snapping photos of the two of them won’t be a good thing since she’ll likely be able to dig into her past and realize that Joanna’s story doesn’t add up. When Patricia tried to reduce her to her cancer and said that’s all she would ever be, Joanna took that advice in a big way and went over to get things going with Jordan, which was certainly awkward and will surely change how things are at work. I was thrilled to see the always terrific Martha Kelly on yet another show following her appearances on “Hacks” and “Euphoria,” and I like that she knew the number, and then letter, that Joanna was thinking of to prove that she wasn’t actually a psychic. Jackie’s $25,000 tab is definitely a red flag of addictive behavior, and Darcy being so cruelly talked down to by Patricia when she took another thing away from him isn’t going to help his mental state.
