Alone Together - Fertility - Advance Preview



Fertility opens with the classic scenario; taking your best friend with you to a gynecologist appointment to enquire about freezing eggs where you overshare about absolutely everything in your life.

Benji and Esther are mistaken as a couple once again, which I think is going to be a running gag throughout this season (and possibly the show as a whole), and a scheme lands her in the path of a guest-starring Denise Richards of all people.

The one-liners and jokes are actually landing better now, and maybe that's just that the writers are settling in with Benji and Esther the characters (as opposed to the people), or maybe I'm coming round to the show a bit more, but this episode seems to be their best effort yet. If the characters rubbed you the wrong way in the first two episodes however, then it may not be the time to give this show another chance yet, as Benji and Esther still have that downtrodden millenial 'charm' about them that they had before, in that they're infuriatingly self-absorbed and genuinely terrible people yet think they're amazing and hard done by.

If that's your thing and you can relate, then power to you, but at the moment there just seems to be something slightly irredeemable about them to me. On the whole, Fertility explores Esther's impulsive decision making, and new bonds the two leads make.

Alone Together airs tomorrow at 8.30 on Freeform. What do you think of Esther and Benji as protagonists? Let me know in the comments.


 
About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
