Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 4: “It Only Has To Work Once”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2, episode 4, I realized that “there’s something about Bridgette Bird.”  Sure, she may be a little quirky, but it’s important that she recognizes who she is and stays true to herself.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “So Maybe I Look Feminine,” Bridgette has a busy day planned, as she tries to tackle her to-do list.  Meanwhile, Nelson invites Bridgette to the salon, which leads to some temptation and fantasy along the way.  My top 5 moments from SMILF season 2 episode 4 are:

5

“You’re the one that should shush.”

In the beginning of the episode, Rafi and Nelson arrive at Bridgette’s apartment to pick Larry up for a fun weekend.  Bridgette is thrown off when Nelson shushes Larry while on the phone.  Bridgette is very protective of Larry and she wants him to feel loved wherever he goes, but she chooses not to confront Nelson in this very moment.  However, she does point out to herself that Nelson is the one that should really shush.

“Rollin with the homies…”

After trying to tackle her to-do list, Bridgette takes Nelson up on her offer and joins her and her friend at the salon.  After flipping through some hairstyle choices a la Britney Spears and Brittany Murphy, Nelson decides she will be going with the Brittany Murphy look and her and her friend break out into a tear-filled “rollin with the homies” to honor Brittany’s classic performance in one of my favorite films of all time, Clueless

“I think you should consider going blonde.”

While waiting for her stylist, Bridgette meets a bride to be, played by Ari Graynor, and the two bond over some eyeliner tips.  The woman suggests that Bridgette goes blonde, which allows us to see Bridgette’s fantasy world complete with an adorable polka dot ensemble, while watching a polo match.  Bridgette actually looks really fabulous with her blonde hair, but we quickly learn that it has somehow transformed her entire life, which I’m not sure is really possible, but sometimes we all need a change in our look here and there.

2

“Is that Kevin Bacon on a horse?”

I mean, Bridgette’s fantasy would not be complete without Kevin Bacon showing up on a horse.  After all, Hollow Man is her favorite film.  Later on, Bridgette crosses paths with Kevin Bacon, who offers to “finger bang” her.  However, he does not want to do this in front of his horse, Peggy, named after Pegasus.  After the act is complete, Kevin asks Bridgette to dinner, who is beyond thrilled to accept.

“I missed you today.”

After the encounter with Kevin, Bridgette confronts Nelson about shushing Larry and Ari Graynor’s character ends up getting brutally hit in the face with a polo ball.  There is blood everywhere and Bridgette repeatedly asks, “Will someone help her?”  Bridgette spots a mannequin dressed like her former self in a t-shirt and shorts with brown hair, reminding her who she really is.  This moment snaps Bridgette back to reality, as she is now staring in the mirror at her messy brown hair and makes the decision not to go to the salon.  Bridgette is beyond thrilled to see Larry return, reminding her what’s truly important to her.  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 9 episode 11: “The Hobo Games”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 9 episode 11, I realized that you may train and train for your moment in the spotlight, but you should never underestimate the power of social media.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “The Hobo Games,” Frank makes it into the final round of competition to become the Hobo Loco Man, but Ingrid tries to make him choose between the game and her.  Meanwhile, Fiona’s behavior does not improve, Carl gets promoted at work, and Debbie grows closer to Kelly.  My top 5 moments from Shameless season 9 episode 11 are:

5

“I’m pregnant.”

In this episode, Tami keeps Lip at a distance and even blows him off when she is supposed to take him and Xan to their meeting.  Lip finally tracks Tami down and she reveals that she is pregnant, which shocks Lip.  Lip has a lot of things going on in his life right now, but he would absolutely be there to support Tami.  But does she want his help?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but I’m really hoping that Tami doesn’t shut Lip out because these two are adorable together.

“Why is that my scrotum’s fault?”

An excellent question, Kev.  V wants Kev to get a vasectomy, especially since their two children are threatening any other kids that live in their home.  Kev is hesitant about this and even calls “bullshit on vasectomies,” but V means business.  After hearing another patient screaming, Kev decides to pretend that he had the surgery and ends up spending the day “masturbating” and “learning the dance in Fortnite,” while high on his pain medication.  V gets a call at work and finds out that Kev never had the surgery and she reminds him that he will be going back there to complete it.  I guess it was worth a shot, Kev.

“Girl’s day!”

Debbie begins to grow closer to Kelly and explores her desires further.  Carl is not pleased by this, as he is not looking to compete over his girlfriend with his sister.  Debbie and Kelly have a fun water fight outside that Carl’s new co-workers are impressed by, but Carl reminds Debbie that Kelly is not a lesbian.  Will she give up on her new crush?  We’ll have to wait and see, but the “girl’s day” was a blast to watch for sure.

2

“I’m not quitting this!”

Frank and Mikey O. make it to the last round of the Hobo Loco Man competition and Frank is ready to win his $50,000 grand prize.  After testing his blood alcohol content, he is told that his “blood is basically jet fuel,” but Frank has been training for this moment for quite some time.  In the end, Frank is slightly distracted when Ingrid tries to get him to leave and Mikey O. and him both miss jumping on the train.  Frank assumes that he will still get a prize, but we learn that the default winner is chosen by how many social media fans someone has and Gloria takes the top prize.  I mean, she did end up going topless for her fans, which shows dedication and commitment.  Ingrid also makes the decision to leave with Randy, so it looks like Frank is left with nothing.  Sorry Frank, my money was on you!

“I want you out of this f*cking house.”

In the beginning of the episode, Fiona wakes up in a random hotel room and stoops to a new low, when she steals some Oxy to make a few extra bucks.  We find out that Deb did pay her bail to get her out of jail, but Fiona still needs to pay her fair share.  Later in the episode, Fiona is caught off guard during an unannounced home check to determine if Xan can stay there.  Lip is upset and Fiona tries to track him down to make things right, but she ends up having a drink and talking about her problems with Lip’s sponsee, Jason.  Fiona pours him a drink, which causes Jason to call up his dealer, ending his 100 days of being sober.  Lip is beyond angry at Fiona.  Fiona tries to explain that she didn’t know, but Lip tells her that she simply didn’t care to and that he wants her out of the house.  Fiona is shocked and hurt by Lip’s words, but will it be enough to help her get back on track?  There are only three episodes left this season and I am still wondering how Fiona will leave the show.  I’m really hoping that Jimmy comes back to take her away and help her, so that we get a happy ending, similar to Ian being reunited with Mickey, but there are endless possibilities.  Stay tuned!
