That’s Don’t Trust the B—-, Leverage, New Girl, and Parenthood!
Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23
In this episode, Chloe decides to sublet James’s apartment when he goes to LA for Dancing with the Stars. June, who prides herself on being an honest Colburn, feels compelled tell James about Chloe’s plan. She first mentions it to her mother, who just happens to be in LA as well for James’s dancing debut.
Unfortunately, James was standing right behind her and is very upset with both Chloe and June. However, when June’s mother tries to cheer him up, she gives him some Chinese herbal tea that she got in Chinatown, and she ends up accidentally dosing him with psychedelics. James winds up making his first appearance on Dancing with the Stars stumbling and disoriented. June learns that is not always right to tell the truth when it can hurt the other person so much.
The cast was talking about how much fun they had making this episode, but I was a little bit skeptical at first about having a winery be the bad guy and using slave labor and bad practices. I just didn’t buy it right off, but after watching for a while, it was entertaining watching the crew have to make the owner of the vineyard believe that his two hundred year old bottle of Thomas Jefferson’s wine is actually a fake.
Parker and Eliot are on the inside getting to know the workers and getting to know some of the processes the vineyard uses to make their wine, particularly whether any of them are illegal, seeing as the client was actually a person’s whose father was killed working at the vineyard.
Parker pulls some hardcore Jackie Chan scaling a staircase railing moves and Eliot has to kick butt while his body runs low on oxygen. Again, hardcore. And, in the end, Nate and Sophie may just share that 200 year old bottle… or do they?
So, Jess still believes in Santa Claus and offers to be designated driver if everybody will go out to all the Christmas parties with her. But, while they’re out, she runs into Robby, the pediatrician, whom she was dating back during Halloween. She finds out that he actually was trying to win her back, and as predicted, she spends the rest of the evening trying to avoid him at all the holiday parties.
Meanwhile, Nick is dating a stripper, who is actually Olivia Munn, that pretty girl from The Newsroom, which is a challenge because she’s probably the prettiest girl he’s ever been with. Winston manages to get part of a cranberry lodged in his ear, so he’s talking really loudly and can’t hear very well. Schmidt is trying to pretend he’s not in love with Cece and pretend like everything is going along great between the two of them.
The whole group gets a little Christmas miracle when Jess gets pulled over by a guy who looks a little like a black Santa Claus. He believes her when she said she wasn’t drinking, she just had alcohol spilled on her–which was true. He says that sometimes people tell the truth, and lets them go without a ticket. They drive up the block with all the Christmas lights around, and there’s a nice moment.
This was them very difficult episode to watch: right off the bat Kristina (just discovered I’d been spelling that name wrong too–good grief) gets sick and she and Adam have to go to the hospital on Christmas Eve. Haddie is back east, trying to get a flight home, but it’s snowing there and she has to stay in town until the airport clears planes to start leaving again.
Crosby and Jasmine get the job of taking care of Max and Nora. Sarah and Hank finally get together which, again, we saw coming. He professes his love, and she is actually somewhat receptive to it. This should be fun watching her sleep with her boss, though. Because that’s always a good idea.
Amber and Ryan are having some problems. she loans him her car and freaks out when he doesn’t answer his phone to let her know that he’s not dead. They get into a big fight in her parking lot–this part is so very white trash–a weird moment for the show and he storms off. Later, he comes back and tell her that he wants to do better, but she decided they need to take some time apart because he needs to stand on his own feet first before they can actually try to move forward with their relationship.
Zeek tries to help Adam when he finds out that Kristina is sick–Adam’s staying with Kristina the hospital. Though at first, Adam sends him home, he comes back with clean clothes and Adam’s favorite sandwich to try to help in any way that he can. Adam finally realizes and appreciates this.
At the end of the show, Kristina starts getting better from the fever and cough and septic shock (I think that is what she had). And, the whole Braverman clan shows up at the hospital to wish her Merry Christmas. Victor, who spent the entire show telling the other Braverman children that Santa wasn’t real, gets a little Christmas spirit when Santa appears at the hospital and asks about his new tennis shoes. “How did you know?” Victor says, but the jolly old fellow is chuckling down the hall, out of sight. And, Haddie makes it home to kiss her mom on Christmas.
We have recaps from last week’s New Girl, as well as this week’s Happy Endings, Private Practice, American Horror Story, and Chicago Fire coming up. We have a full night on Thursday. I think we’re going with the 1 hour Up All Night rather than Last Resort. I think that’ll be a fun holiday episode to watch. Then, we are done with another week!
This is the second post I’ve done with my speech to text phone, and unfortunately, it needed a lot more editing than the first one. I may decide to post one of the speech to text posts directly just so you can compare how accurate it was. I thought it was more accurate the other day, but with so many weird names, I think my speech pattern and accent is throwing it off a little bit.
