Togetherness – What Could Have Been

Togetherness – What Could Have Been

Since Togetherness ended in such an abrupt but perfectly placed way for a next season, I postulated what the third season could have been. Tina (Amanda Peet) gets pleasantly pregnant with Alex (Steve Zissis).  While at first Alex wants them to be a couple, Tina balks.  The two begin waffling over whether they can manage being a real couple, or perhaps co-parenting is the better solution.  The couple continues on-again-off-again throughout most of the pregnancy, but as the months come to a close, they both have to decide how they really feel and what they really want from each other. Brett (Mark Duplass) and Michelle (Melanie Lynskey)...

Togetherness: “For the Kids”

Togetherness: “For the Kids”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UBghM7lNnM This is it.  The very last episode of Togetherness.  I’m not entirely sure what precipitated the swift end to such an amazing show, but I’m a little bit fraught.  It is nice to know that the Duplass brothers will continue their creative relationship with HBO because if they can create this, then I know they’ve got some good ideas.  But for now, let’s bid adieu correctly. Tina’s (Amanda Peet) brief male encounter from last week and Alex’s surprise announcement doesn’t deter Tina from getting her lady bits checked out to make sure a bun can cook properly....

Togetherness: “Just the Range”

Togetherness: “Just the Range”

With half the season over, (find Episode 4 here) this episode proved to be a turning point for the season and for the characters. It’s a matter of self discovery for all. Alex discovers a kindred spirit. Tina discovers what she really wants in life. Michelle discovers how to be courageous. And Brett…well, he discovers what it is like to have a catfight in the backseat while you’re driving. Alex is working on the movie set in which the original image provided to him is being constantly changed.  From typical Dracula style vampire, he then becomes a vampire who is also a pimp.  Which, never really got explained, but we did...

Girls: “Old Loves”

Girls: “Old Loves”

This week’s episode gave us the Jessa-Adam-will-they-won’t-they answer.  Which was so awkward but also decidedly hilarious and having also had a similar moment, it really had me cracking up.  When you have that kind of situation, you’ve just got to be able to laugh at yourself.  But not before Jessa has to deal with Hannah.  It’s a tale as old as time. The misery of being cruel to another person so that they’ll take the hint and break ties.  It’s a standard dating tactic, but can also be applicable in friendships as we see Jessa pull away from Hannah.  Or push her away.  Also are rice pudding...

Movie Review: Max

Movie Review: Max

I am a huge dog person. I grew up with dogs, and I currently own one. So I accepted this movie review fully knowing that a dog might be in movie simulated danger and that I would probably cry. I only cried four times, I swear. There is something about the harm that comes to animals in films that makes it ten times worse than what happens to humans in film. Maybe it is because they can’t articulate what is happening to them, or the fact that they will blindly follow someone they trust into peril they don’t understand.  In any case, as a dog lover, this movie gave me a lot of feels. The basis of the film is that Max loses his...
