My Boys 4.9: "My Men"

TV: My Boys

Season finale time! And this one felt very . . . final, so I think they're at least setting themselves up for the possibility that the show won't come back. And honestly? I'm not that sad. More after the jump.

Mike marries Marcia, Brendan buys Crowley's, Kenny decides to go to London with Steph, PJ decides her friends are more important than her career . . . and I don't care that much about any of it. Sad. I don't know what the issue was, but this season just never grabbed me. The obvious difference was the lack of Andy, but I was never a huge Andy fan, so I don't think that's it. I think I wanted more of PJ and Bobby and less of everyone else. I don't know. Meh. If it comes back, I'll keep watching, but I'm just not that into it anymore.

I was a little irritated by how obvious it was that ONE of them had to buy Crowley's, and how that needed a "big reveal" at the end of the episode. I was glad Mike and Marcia got married (hey! Brady Bunch names!), although a little frustrated at the way their decisiveness emphasized the uncertainty about whether the others' relationships are *actually* with their forever people, since that's never yet been outright stated but seems plausible, at least for PJ and Bobby. Although, I guess, maybe those characters are still figuring that out for themselves. Continuing with the "My Boys creepily parallels my life" theme, a lot of PJ's work/life balance issues really resonated with me (you know, since I'm in grad school for a JD & MBA with the hopes of setting myself up for some sort of hard-charging, high-powered career).

Oh, and best quote (at first I thought it was from this episode, but now I think it's from the last) would be the interchange between Mike and Crowley, roughly:
Crowley: You threw up in my wife's purse.
Mike: How did you know it was me?
Crowley: You told me, "I'm going to throw up in your wife's purse." I took you at your word as a gentleman.
