New episode, new formula. This week Married sticks to its title, ie, Married. Indeed, we follow our main couple, Russ and Lina - for those who have forgotten their names, in a romantic getaway. They meet a younger version of them played by Krysta Rodriguez and I-Don't-Know-Who-The-Hell-He-Is. Then, we have a plot B with Jenny Slate and Paul Reiser.
The episode begins in the doctor's office for Russ' vasectomy. As already mentioned, Lina wants no more children. So, he will go through this procedure again so they can have sex (Russ is a baby machine). Lina feels a little bit sorry, and thanks to a coupon, they go on a romantic getaway, so they can relax - away from the children - and use for the very last time a condom.
Jess and Shep will take care of the children during this time. And this is where the plot B has taken over the main plot (even if, we don't have a single scene with the children... Where the Hell are they? Have they eaten an ice-cream ... or rocks?). I need answers!
I think it's great that the series has managed to develop so much its supporting characters that they can have the same amount of airtime. What's great is that it feels normal, not like a boring/uninteresting subplot.
During this part, we have Jess facing her problem. She got caught sexting her neighbor. And the neighbor's wife (Eileen O'Connell) is not happy. It's not funny to her - she's a real tight-ass. That's why she comes knocking to their home in search of her husband. He doesn't respond to her messages or her calls. She's worried, but think he would answer to Jess. This storyline confirms Jenny Slate's talent.
It gets interesting. Indeed, the husband of the neighbor responds, and his wife and Shep grab Jess' phone and sext him. The situation quickly becomes funny.
At the hotel, Lina and Russ are in bed, not having sex - it happens to the best of us, but hear their neighbor, having sex LOUDLY. I found the scene sweet and funny ("Do you think they can not hear us having sex?"). Judy Greer and Nat Faxon chemistry is undeniable, they have this little spark (please, marry them!).
Well... Let's get back to their storyline. They get acquainted with their neighbor, in whom they recognize themselves. As you can imagine, not everything will go as planned. Russ recommends to the husband to buy his dream car. He buys it, shows it to his wife, who gets worked up. She accuses Russ to be responsible of this crazy purchase. Crazy because it ruined their restaurant dream. But as Lina responded so well "My husband can not make anyone do anything". It was a beautiful scene, see these two incredible actors laugh at and having fun.
Note : 6.5/10 - Once again, Married proved us its originality, oddness and realistic approach.
Now, it's your turn! What did you think of the episode? Hit the comments!
