Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 8: “Less Is More”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2  episode 8, I realized that change is never easy to accept.  Whether you are looking to start a new chapter in your life or saying goodbye to your past, there is always a moment where everything feels uncertain.  It’s up to us to keep moving forward, but some days are easier than others.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Sex Makes It Less Formal,” Bridgette throws Rafi a bachelor party.  Meanwhile, Nelson’s mother comes to visit and Tutu discovers an important letter.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 8 are:

5

“I used Ally’s credit card.”

In the beginning of the episode, Bridgette is at a sex store, shopping for props for Rafi’s bachelor party.  I immediately started to wonder where she got the money for all of this, but things started to make a lot more sense when she mentioned using Ally’s credit card.  Bridgette realizes that she needs to return this and that perhaps this is becoming a problem.  Either way, Bridgette is ready to pull out all the stops for Rafi, including ordering a stripper for him named Ember, who ends up being Bridgette’s old friend, Jill.  After all, Rafi apparently loves strippers and we even learn that his mom was one.  Maybe this wasn’t the best idea?

4

“You look just like me!”

Nelson is feeling stressed out about her mother’s visit.  Nelson’s mother is played by the amazing Melanie Griffith, who puts quite a bit of pressure on Nelson.  After looking at Nelson’s beautiful apartment, she comments that sometimes “less is more,” which reveals that her mother may be a lot to handle.  After her mother over shares about her orgasms, Nelson decides to try on her wedding gown, but has a panic attack when she can’t get the dress off of her, causing her to soak away her troubles in the bathtub, with her wedding dress still on.  Are these normal wedding day jitters or is there something else behind Nelson’s anxiety?  We’ll have to wait and find out, but I’m hoping this gets resolved before the end of the series.

3

“Make your next chapter all for you.”

Tutu is having a tough time dealing with life after Joe, as she tells her sister that she is not moving.  Tutu begins surrounding herself with depressing things and even looks up different ways that she could potentially die.  Later on, her sister discovers a letter from Joe in their suitcase and Tutu gets the chance to hear some last thoughts from Joe, which gives her a sense of closure and comfort.  I thought that this was a really important and touching moment for Tutu, as Joe clearly wants her to find her way, but promises that he will always be looking out for her.

2

“Maybe we need a warm up act.”

After finding the receipt for Nelson’s diamond ring, Bridgette is beyond upset, as she could use the money he spent on that for Larry’s preschool.  Bridgette has been drinking quite a bit at the bachelor party and decides to give everyone a show before the stripper arrives.  Bridgette starts out having fun, but confronts Rafi about it, revealing how hurt she is by this.  Maybe it wasn’t the best idea to throw a bachelor party for your ex-boyfriend though?

1

“We’ve seen each other at our worst.”

The most significant moment of the episode for me was when Bridgette tells Rafi that they have seen each other at their worst and never gave up on one another.  She also tells Rafi that he is a great Dad, which clearly means a lot to him.  Later on, Rafi tells Bridgette that he wants to her to go to their wedding, which is a step in the right direction.  However, Bridgette recognizes that this is where she needs to say goodbye to Rafi and move on, which is not easy for her to do.  I am still ultimately shipping Bridgette and Rafi, but I’m not sure if we will get this wrapped up within the last two episodes.  Fingers crossed!  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 7: “You’re My Girl”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2  episode 7, I realized that true friendship is when you no longer consider that person your friend and instead, they become family.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Smile More If Lying Fails,” Bridgette and Larry get their hair done and are invited to Eliza’s party.  Meanwhile, Rafi and Nelson share their happy news and Bridgette shows up for her date two weeks late.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 7 are:

5

“Do you like your hair?  No.”

In the beginning of the episode, the waitress leaves Bridgette a note saying that she does hair, in case she wants to take Larry.  Bridgette asks Larry if he likes his hair and he hilariously says, “No.”  Straight and to the point, Larry!  Larry is scared when he is getting his hair done so Bridgette decides to get her hair done too.  However, I’m not sure that identical cornrows was the right decision.

4

“Larry we gotta go get some weed.”

Eliza is stressing out at her party and calls Bridgette up in a panic to come over and get her some weed.  Bridgette hilariously announces this to Larry, as they head over to Tutu’s together.  It’s always fun seeing what Tutu and her sister are up to, but Bridgette tries to stick to the mission as much as possible with Larry by her side.

3

“A magical Puerto Rican wedding…I can’t wait.”

Rafi and Nelson announce that they are getting married and Bridgette seems genuinely happy for them.  However, she quickly discovers that Larry is invited to the wedding, but she is not, which makes Bridgette feel some type of way.  I felt really bad for Bridgette in this moment, as she realizes that her relationship with Rafi has certainly changed, now learning that he changed her name in his phone to just “Bridgette Bird.”  Is there any hope for these two?  I’m still hoping so!

2

“I’m here for our date…you’re two weeks late.”

Bridgette is still feeling upset about Rafi’s announcement and decides to call up the tattoo artist she stood up.  He seems eager to see her and immediately skips dinner to initiate sex, but Bridgette is less than enthused about his over-aggressive approach.  Bridgette hilariously begins texting Eliza during the act, saying that the sex is so bad, only she sends it to her date by mistake.  Bridgette leaves after an awkward goodbye, realizing that perhaps this was not what she needed after all.

1

“You’re my girl.”

At the end of the episode, Bridgette meets up with Eliza and confides in her about her date and about Rafi’s announcement.  Eliza proves to be Bridgette’s real friend, as she has her back and tells her that she is her cousin.  I love the friendship between these two, which is far from perfect, but they both support each other, which is important.  I was so disappointed to hear that SMILF has been canceled, but I’m looking forward to the remaining episodes of the series.  Let’s just hope it doesn’t end on a major cliffhanger!  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and comments on SMILF below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 6: “Free Money, Free Money, Free Money!”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2 episode 6, I realized that sometimes we just need one person to truly believe in us.  That person may not always be right, but just knowing that he or she is in your corner can make a world of difference.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Should Mothers Incur Loss Financially?” Bridgette tries to get a job, as the bills begin to pile up all around her.  Meanwhile, Tutu is in for a shocking discovery and Rafi and Nelson have an argument.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 6 are:

5

“I want a pony.  Me too.”

In the beginning of the episode, we get to witness Bridgette’s long list of bills, as she desperately tries to find full time employment.  Bridgette even goes on an interview and seems to hit it off with the potential employer, but it doesn’t end up working out after she notices that Bridgette has a child.  Bridgette is prepared to sacrifice time with Larry to support him and even asks him what he would like to buy with their money in the future.  Larry responds with the only logical answer:  a pony!

4

“What are you, a welfare queen?”

After Bridgette applies for SNAP benefits, she is excited to try out her food stamps at the grocery store, only she learns that it does not apply to many of the purchases she actually needs.  Tutu is upset that Bridgette went this route and hilariously asks her if she is a welfare queen, which transitions us into a hilarious clip of Bridgette being the ultimate welfare queen in one of her daydreams.  I have to say that I loved the costume!  Bridgette then gets into an argument with Tutu after she refuses to give her the money to pay for the groceries, as Bridgette tells her that she is a terrible mother and storms out.

3

“I’m just dropping off the keys…”

Rafi drives Bridgette to Ally’s house to drop off the keys, but Bridgette discovers that no one is home and takes this opportunity to go on her own shopping spree in Ally’s house.  She takes groceries and a watch, among other things.  Bridgette realizes that it is wrong to steal from Ally, even though she probably won’t notice that any of the stuff is missing, but this scene was extremely comical to watch.

2

“I’ll wash your hair tonight if you want.”

We witness an argument between Rafi and Nelson, as Nelson begins to get frustrated since she is paying for all of their bills.  Nelson supports Rafi and believes in him, but she gets angry when he doesn’t wait for the plumber.  After Rafi confides in Bridgette, she gives him some really great advice and reminds him that he and Nelson are great together and that she is there for him every step of the way.  In a sweet moment, Rafi brings jugs of water home and offers to wash Nelson’s hair.  He then proposes to her and it looks like these two might have a happily ever after.  However, I am still leaning toward Rafi and Bridgette in the end.

1

“How about we make a bet?”

At the end of the episode, Bridgette and Tutu come together, as they both have a lot going on.  Tutu suggests that they make a bet and says that Bridgette will find her dream job within a year and will take any job she can get in the meantime.  Bridgette tells Tutu that she will find her own house to buy since Joe’s son is insisting on selling the house she has grown to love over the years.  Even though Bridgette and Tutu often argue, they love each other and this bet proves that they will continue to support one another as much as they can.  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 5: “Single Mom in Love Forever”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2 episode 5, I realized that preparing for parenthood is never easy and things don’t always go according to plan.  But it’s all worth it in the end.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Single Mom in Love Forever,” we travel back to 2014, as Bridgette and Rafi prepare for parenthood.  Meanwhile, we finally understand where Tutu’s nickname comes from and also discover Bridgette’s inspiration for her son’s name.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 5 are:

5

“You cannot have a baby with that idiot.”

In the beginning of the episode, Tutu makes her feelings known right away, as she reacts to the news that Bridgette is pregnant.  Even though Tutu is not Rafi’s biggest fan, she wants to support her daughter and do right by her.  Rafi tries to bond with Tutu in several moments, but Tutu is still disappointed in some of her daughter’s decisions.  That doesn’t mean that she will not be there for them, however.

4

“We’re not naming our kid after Hitler.”

One of the funniest moments of the episode is when Rafi suggests that they name their son, Adolfo.  Bridgette explains that adding an “o” to a name doesn’t really help and uses the example, “Hitlero,” to further her argument.  At this point, they haven’t decided on a name just yet, but Bridgette clearly wants it to mean something special.

3

“I know how much you love me.”

Rafi proposes to Bridgette when he finds out that she is pregnant and they have plans to get married.  However, they are not without issues, as we learn that Rafi kisses someone else, which rubs Bridgette the wrong way.  Bridgette knows how much Rafi loves her and Rafi is extremely excited to be a father, but she ends up telling him that she can’t marry him while in labor.  However, I still see some sparks between these two in present day, so maybe they are finally ready to give it another try?  We’ll have to wait and see.

2

“You’re in labor right here in a park.”

Bridgette has been preparing for a home birth, but Tutu reminds her that there are no life saving devices at home and tries to get her to go to the hospital.  Bridgette is extremely determined to have a home birth, which is painful to watch.  While I understand her wanting to follow through with her plan, I think that maybe it would have been a good idea to go to the hospital after all, but at least everything worked out in the end.

1

“See someone was giving away Larry Bird T-Shirts.”

After walking around while in labor, Bridgette comes across a Larry Bird T-Shirt.  She initially tries to steal it, but the woman selling it ultimately tells her she can have it.  This inspires Larry’s name, as she gives birth to her son in this very shirt.  Bridgette, Rafi, and Tutu’s reaction to Larry’s arrival is sweet and heartwarming.  Tutu requests to be called “Tutu” because it is Hawaiian for Grandma and she always thought of herself as Hawaiian.  I guess that’s as good a reason as any.  Either way, this episode gave us the chance to see Bridgette’s past, which was important and revealing.  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts on SMILF below in the comments section.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

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.

4

“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

3

“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.

1

“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 “SMILF” season 2 episode 3: “Birthday twins!”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2  episode 3, I was reminded that one night can have a ripple effect on so many others, only you don’t always realize it.  After Bridgette’s fiasco last week, we actually get to learn how her night impacted other characters on the show, which was clever and fun.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Surrogate Mothers Inspire Loving Families,” which is a play on SMILF, Bridgette takes the statue of Mary home and tries to recover from her crazy adventure.  Meanwhile, the episode is split up into three parts, allowing us to see how that same day impacted:  Ida, Ally & Mindy, and Elsie.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 3 are:

5

“Everybody always misses my birthday.”

In the beginning of the episode, we flash back to “earlier that day” and Ally starts talking about how everyone always misses her birthday.  Ally is clearly in a rut because of Mr. Daddy’s infidelity, but she desperately tries to put a bright spin on everything.  Only we quickly learn that this big day for Ally actually impacts a lot of the people around her as well.

4

“Come dance with me.”

The first perspective of the episode belongs to Ida, who works very hard for Ally.  We learn that Ally’s daughter, Chloe, actually has a very close bond with Ida.  Ida even helps her “roll” out her fat so that she feels confident for her date.  After the date, Chloe is upset and feels rejected, but Ida keeps her staying positive, as the two of them dance away their worries, which is heartwarming and special.  Even though Ally is Chloe’s mother, I’m not sure that Chloe feels comfortable talking to her about her problems, but it’s nice to see that she has another woman under her roof who is there for her.

3

“I hate Judge Judy.”

During the “Ally & Mindy” portion of the episode, Ally gets a call from her son and has to pick him up from school because he is not feeling well.  Ally tries to bond with her son and suggests that they can curl up on the couch and watch television together, but her son hilariously reminds her, “I hate Judge Judy and it’s so predictable.”  Later on, Ally wants to go into a store and tries to get her son to behave and says he can buy whatever he wants at Target and that “he can shoot guns all night” as long as he remains quiet, which is not the phrase that Ally opted for.  It doesn’t look like the bonding is going anywhere, however.

2

“Thank you Miss Ally and your cheating ass husband.”

The third part of the episode is from Elsie’s perspective and she is beyond excited to go to a concert later on.  After Ally decides to replace her own refrigerator simply because it doesn’t go with the rest of the decor, she agrees to let Elsie have the discarded refrigerator, which frees up some money so that Elsie can go get her hair done in style.  Unfortunately, Elsie misses out on the concert when she gets the call from Ally to babysit Larry while Ally and Bridgette go out for her birthday, but she ends up making the most of it by dancing the night away with Mindy, while keeping a watchful eye over Larry of course.

1

“Birthday twins!”

During the Ally & Mindy portion of the episode, Mindy helps Ally in the store she works at.  Ally has been desperately trying to obtain a rare Birkin bag, which costs $23,000 and is tired of being put on the waiting list.  After discovering that Ally and Mindy share the same birthday, Mindy decides to help out Ally after being snubbed by another customer who was waiting for the bag.  Ally isn’t the kindest to Mindy either, but Mindy is still sweet to her and ends up watching Larry with Elsie when they are unable to go to the concert together.  It seems like Ally doesn’t really know how to hold on to a friend, but perhaps she should take a further look at the women around her who are always there for her.  Birthdays are a time for celebration, but we also tend to take a good hard look in the mirror at ourselves and determine where we are in our lives.  Ally may still need some time to recover over Mr. Daddy, but I think that she should take a cue from Ida, Elsie, and Mindy, who seem to make the best of their situations no matter what.  At least Ally got that Birkin bag though.  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts on SMILF below in the comments section.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “SMILF” season 2 episode 2: “Well Change Hurts”

Greetings TV viewers!  After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2  episode 2 last night, I was reminded that Third Eye Blind’s song, “How’s It Going to Be,” can really get you through a lot.  It may not solve your issues overnight, but I have to agree with Tutu’s choice of soundtrack here.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Sorry Mary, I’m Losing Faith,” Bridgette gets asked out on a date, but realizes that she may not be ready for such a big step.  Meanwhile, Tutu tries to deal with her own grief, and Ally tries to pick up the pieces of her marriage.  My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 2 are:

5

“Well change hurts.”

In the beginning of the episode, Bridgette decides to get her basketball tattoo covered up because it reminds her of her father.  The tattoo artist reminds her that “change hurts,” but sometimes change can be just what we need, as he spontaneously asks Bridgette out on a date.  Bridgette says yes and seems genuinely excited about it, but now she needs to find someone to watch Larry.

4

“You planned a scavenger hunt?”

When Bridgette drops off Larry to Rafi, he explains that he cannot watch him during her date because he has his own romantic evening planned for his girlfriend, which involves a scavenger hunt around the city leading to a nice dinner.  The idea is actually pretty clever, but Bridgette is not amused, as she starts to realize that her own potential romantic evening may now be put on hold.

3

“You’re fired.”

After finding a sitter for Larry, thanks to Ally, Bridgette agrees to go out with Ally before her date, but Ally is an emotional mess right now after finding out that her husband has a mistress.  Ally surprisingly fires Bridgette because she can’t have another woman around the house anymore, but still wants to be friends.  Bridgette seems open to the idea, but will Ally have a change of heart?  After all, it seems like Bridgette does make a difference with her kids.

2

“I’m Team Ally.”

Well sure, Bridgette, maybe you are Team Ally, but I’m not sure that following her advice about taking a Xanax is necessarily the best idea before your big date.  Bridgette is definitely more relaxed now, but ends up bailing on her date, realizing that she is not ready for this big step in her life just yet.

1

“I’m really worried about the future for my kid and my future too I guess.”

At the end of the episode, Bridgette ends up walking into a church and helping herself to some church wine, as she has a heart-to-heart talk with the statue of Mary.  Bridgette opens up about some of her fears and doubts, but ends up stealing the statue to set her free.  While I’m not sure this is the wisest decision, luckily Rafi ends up picking Bridgette up and helping her.  I don’t know if these two are meant to end up together or not, but it’s nice to see that Rafi is trying to be there for Bridgette and Larry.  Although I’m not really sure what Bridgette is going to do with the statue of Mary now?  Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.
