My Boys 4.8: "Extreme Mike-Over"

TV: My Boys

The use of the word "extreme" in the title implies that something exciting happens. It doesn't. More after the jump.

This was the second-to-last episode of the season, and it felt very transitional. In the supposed A plot, Mike has to come clean to Marcia about the house he's living in really being Andy's, so he has to clean and redecorate his gross apartment. Really, that's it. In the B plot, college kids start hanging out at Crowley's so the gang acts obnoxious for a while to drive them away. Meh. I think in a sitcom with a longer season, this wouldn't feel so plot-deficient, but for one of nine episodes? I was disappointed.

Okay, I liked the Crowley's sub-plot, and I thought a lot of the things they did to get rid of the kiddies were really funny. But overall I was disappointed in the A plot, that it was yet another "PJ and Steph team up to fix something about one of the guys." Really? It just seems lazy and diminishing. I thought by this point all of the characters were more actualized than that. I did have the thought, as I was watching, that what really keeps me watching is how realistic the dialogue is. I can see myself hanging out with any of these people. But then, I've already established how freakishly closely My Boys has begun to mirror my life (not in this episode, at least, thank goodness!).
