My Boys 4.2: "Gourmets and Confused"TV: My Boys
This second episode of the season was shown right after the first one, but it's really supposed to be a separate episode, so I'm treating it as such. Read on!
This was . . . I don't know. Okay. The tension between the couples and the single guys was believable, because having two thirds of the group paired up will certainly change the dynamic. And the fancy restaurant was a good vehicle for it - Stephanie and PJ were adorable when the got all excited about it, and actually seemed like best friends for once. And their boyfriends reacted well, and both Mike's jealousy and Brendan's complete indifference were hilarious and true to the characters. I liked that whole scene a lot.
The fancy restaurant scene was funny, too. Kenny's attempts at pushing people around were cute, and I really like when the show remembers, however fleetingly, that Bobby actually is ridiculously wealthy. I was a little less taken with the whole role reversal thing involving the magic brownies and Brendan and Mike going to the fancy bar. It wasn't awful, but it seemed more contrived than this show usually is.Posted by Kat at July 28, 2010 11:00 AM
