For all those that have yet to watch last Tuesday’s episode of Trophy Wife, entitled ‘The Big 5-0’, then now would be the perfect time to do that. This is not a spoiler free blog. THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! You’ve been warned.
This episode revolved around Pete’s belief that celebrating his birthday, on his birthday, is cursed, and Kate goes to try and set that straight. A lot of crazy stuff happens, including some lobsters needing to be caught, and all in the name of good, sitcom-y fun.
This series is definitely an enjoyable show to watch. It’s all very exaggerated humour that would be unbelievable if it were to happen to anyone, but it’s all in the name of good fun. While I do find shows like Friends, How I Met Your Mother, and even The Crazy Ones have their moments where they step back, pull the curtain back, and give you a sense of genuine comedy, this is not one of those shows. Like I said, it’s all very exaggerated fun that shouldn’t be taken seriously. That makes this an easy show to sit through and laugh, and that’s definitely something I can use from time to time.
All in all, this episode fit right along the rest of this series outrageous sitcom circumstances. Probably my favourite parts to this episode involved the kids and having to catch the lobsters. I also liked when Hillary and Warren had to break it to Bert that he’s eaten everything he’s ever worn on pajamas. Basically, this show is just good fun.
My rating 7 out of 10.
“Ah, you’re almost out of eggs. You’re out of eggs.” – Meg says to Kate as she goes shopping in her kitchen.
“You’ve gotta think like a lobster. (Pause) Bingo.” – Warren explains, as he waddles along on the floor.
“Don’t you know that old expression: that you catch more flies with honey than by being a bitch?” – Jackie gives her take on the expression to Diane.
“Are you having my mid-life crisis?” – Pete asks Kate.
Okay, now I really am going to go review last week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Stay tuned.
