These reviews are still way too long, so I’m going to try once again to keep them short and sweet. (HA, I crack myself up.)
So, I still love Max so much, although her hatred of hipsters has now reached a level of confusion. Perhaps that word does not mean what I think it means. One of the big plots this episode was Han putting in a big tv and karaoke machine. Can’t really say I blame Max for wiggin’ out about it (though I do love me some Journey.) Eventually it evolves into an open mic night. UGH. I think I’m so confused about the hipster thing on account of like, Max is queen hipster. This show is SO hipster. It’s theme song is totally hipster-y by a hipster band and the credits look like a freakin’ instagram photo! I digress… I really think the whole cast is starting to jell nicely. The diner scenes are a comic joy as each actor hits their mark and plays off the others in a way that makes me terrified for Season 2. (On account of Season 2 of a show usually sucks.)
The next big plotline in this episode is Caroline’s need of some of the things that she forgot to grab, mostly her bite guard. There’s a handful of things here that show the differences between Caroline & Max. Dentists, sushi, medical care… ironically that last one has Caroline more willing to see a questionable doctor than Max, and Max drags her out. After Oleg offering her the money for a fancy dentist in exchange for an unnamed, unknown, future sexual favor; Caroline realizes she and Max can just break into her old townhouse like when she was a teenager and get her own bite guard.
Words cannot describe Caroline’s closet… or bathroom. Even Max can only say “Oh Em Gee.” Caroline’s clothes have a home, and she has a Ferris Heels in her room, it’s a rotating rack of shoes obviously. It’s genius. Her bathroom has a MONSTER tub that Max falls so in love with. They decide to grab a bunch of things to take home to use or resell. Unfortunately Caroline doesn’t tell Max that “everyone” (rich people) wire their furs, so Max trips an alarm. At the end it turns out that they can’t sell any of it since the lawyers inventoried the house. Also they put it on tighter lock down so no more tub for Max!
Other favorites: Max & Chestnut still have a unique bond.
