First half was dreadful. The scene where Frank is playing Wii Rock Band whist singing to Julia, and anything to do with their stupid fucking son Leo was just...bad. Terrible shit.

Second half was better. The fight between Tom and Derek was pretty decent (it at least clarifies some aspects of their history), and I like the developments regarding the play. I feel so bad for Ivy Lynn. She really deserves the role and I'm not sure if Uma Thurman is really the best choice for her replacement. She's a star, but can she do Marilyn?

Meryl Streep's daughter looks just like her mom. Too bad she didn't inherit any of her acting skillz.

I actually liked this episode. Weeeiirrd. I like how Julia's affair blew up in her face, I like that it seemed like Michael's final episode, I liked Karen+Ivy (even the song, lol). Of course Julia's son is still the worst fucking actor on the show, and Ellis...I knew he wasn't straight. Psh.

Pretty good episode. I'm glad Tom isn't ditching John due to political affiliation, but it seems like a pretty lame plot device to try to push him toward Sam. (Who likes sports! So many sports!)

I'm also glad that they are actually dealing with the fallout of Julia cheating. I'm hoping that the result is that both the husband and son leave and never return, along with Michael. I like Julia, but I hate her choices and the people in her life. It drags down the show.

I hope Eileen is getting to see that Ellis is a worthless profiteer. She needs to crush him.

Ivy is still completely awful and childish. People on the show (including herself) keep saying she's an adult, but I'm not seeing any adult behavior from her.

Really liked this ep. They did some very nice things here.

1. The Julia/Michael thing didn't just get swept under the rug. Nice job by Frank going through the pain and the anger of this betrayal, confronting Michael, etc. I hated that they went this route with Julia's character, but now that they set it up, I hope she can pour all this emotion into her work.

2. Ellis thinks he's all that and a bag of chips, and then Eileen puts him in his place. Before, it was like Julia was the only one who didn't like the little weasel and he was going behind everyone's back and crawling under his rock. But now, Eileen KNOWS he's a little weasel and will use him to do weasel things. There's something about him being called out on it that makes him more acceptable.

3. Eileen proving that she can be a little conniving at this whole producer thing we well, but she does it with class (vs. Ellis).

4. Karen and Ivy don't need to be best friends, but I was happy to see that they could at least co-exist on the screen together. I liked Ivy saying "this doesn't make us best friends." Perfect.

The only thing I felt was lame was Tom ducking out on his Replublican bf so that he's free to go after the dancer dude.

I still think we could use a little more of Tom and Julia working on "Bombshell." Great title for the musical.

The dialogue in this episode was horrendous. So repetitive.

Tom: I've seen that behavior in stroke victims.

Sam: Yeah! Maybe he had a stroke!

Karen: Stop yelling at me!

Dev: I'm not yelling!

Karen: You're yelling!

Dev: Maybe I am yelling!

Karen: I get yelled at during work and now I'm being yelled at when I come home!

Dev: Well, I have the right to yell!

Karen: Go yell at someone else Dev!

I quite liked Uma Thurman's character. You can really tell she's having a lot of fun on the show, and that in turn makes it a lot of fun to watch. Same with Anjelica Huston.

Julia's son has never gotten anything lower than a 'B+'?

I think Uma is doing a good job, and her character is actually alright. (Though next week it looks like things get dicey.)

The guy that plays Dev is really hot, but they are making his character so dull and predictable. I wanna see him stick around, but they need to give his storyline and his relationship with Karen a serious jolt.

Tom and Sam are good as friends, but I don't think they have any romantic chemistry at all.

Eh, I don't think they'll actually go through with it, but I'm sure they'll lean it in that direction for the last three episodes.

They'll rather save it for a cliffhanger at the end of the season, with one person "leaving" the other (in which they'll spend the first couple eps of S2 putting them back together) or they'll have Dev and/or Karen make some big romantic gesture in the finale, and all will be just ducky.

The Bollywood number was horrible. (and kinda fun. But mostly horrible. I lost it when it showed Ellis for a split second, stealing a piece of fruit or whatever it was.)

Julia's son is soooo fucking terrible, etc. etc. I say that every week, but it's true. And I swear, Tom was getting more worked up over Leo going missing than Julia was.

Right? It didn't help that the text was from some random ass dancer whom we've never seen before. If Ellis had texted from Tom's phone or something then, yeah, it'd make sense for her to accept it. Sloppy writing is sloppy.

The Bollywood number was so cheesy, but it was actually my favorite part of the episode. It's nice to know this show can still be fun (albeit silly) instead of a never ending barrage of horrible choices and cliches.

I still think the show has potential and it is getting better, but man does it need a shakeup. I can't wait to see what they do next season.

Oh, and the misleading preview from last week was pretty low. C'mon NBC.

Yeah see getting the text from Tom would have been fine. He's a close friend to Julia and they already showed that she has his number anyways so it makes sense he would text her. Not random dancer whoever the fuck it is.

Ellis Is such a cheeseball though. Why Is he playing every side wen he gains nothing.

YUP. This is me hoping for Karen to stay true to her happy go lucky self and direct MOST of her anger at Dev. Then down and out Ivy, feeling super regretful, lets her move in.
