Still, usually a straight guy’s house looks something like Ern’s dad’s bachelor pad, which includes a foosball table, Three Stooges poster, golf putting practice machine, alligator skin couches with alligator skin drapes, no curtains, large rugs, inherited antiques, guns, large TV, two refrigerators full of steaks, and X-box. But maybe we just need to get the gender stereotypes out of our heads.
Anyway, the boys on this show have finally arrived. The rich one, Grant, is a douche so far. Give Michelle some wine, dude! Ginny’s brother, Charlie, was at the studio long enough for everyone to realize that Boo has a crush on him. Poor Boo. Sasha’s mean girl ways are back, but we are supposed to feel bad for her now because her mom is shallow, rich, and neglectful. We meet Boo’s mom, and she’s cool. The girls are in a contest with other ballet studios to see which one’s girls have the grossest feet. That was kind of funny.
Fanny starts acting really bitchy about Michelle inheriting everything, and Michelle is nice back. Michelle moves into the guest house behind the studio, leaves Fanny in the house, and assures Fanny that Hubbell didn’t mean to cut her off, because he thought Fanny would be dead before him. It makes sense! She didn't explain it well, but we get what she meant. Michelle also gives her wine. Slowly.
Ginny’s mother, Claire, tries to get Michelle to sell the house with her. She’s a real estate agent, and she has a real grudge against her ex-husband for leaving her. She’s also a little crazypants. Even though Michelle was so annoying in the scene where she was explaining to Grant how terrified she was to put down roots, we totally sympathize. Leeard's mother keeps trying to convince her to buy a house. We don’t want to own any houses yet! We want to move far and wide!
We guess this episode was better than last week’s, at least, but it wasn’t as good as the pilot. The problems from last week (the jokes trying too hard and the painful line delivery) were nearly gone last night. This show is really trying our patience with its slow moving plots. This episode's middle was duuuuuuullllllll. We have to wait two weeks for a new one (curses) and we hope Bunheads doesn’t lose the meager audience it has in that time. Sidenote: We love the word "snood" and will be using it whenever possible. We might even start wearing them just so we can tell people what they're called.
