SMILF Season 1 Episode 2 Review: 1,800 Filet-O-Fishes & One Small Diet Coke

at .

Bridgette needs to get a handle on her awful decisions. 

On SMILF Season 1 Episode 2, we watched her leave Larry in a delicate state in line with his father who did not believe in vaccinations, get into her boss' bathtub without changing the water from the previous person, and more shockingly, have sex with her boss' son. 

Bridgette Has a Plan...

Going to work in the first place was a bad move. It's understandable that she wanted to make a good impression on Ally, but would Ally have really fired her if she called in with the news that her son was unwell?

Surely, the kids could have banded together to write the essay and give Bridgette a break. It's difficult to get a read on Bridgette because she should have been trying to get things completed quicker to return to her son. 

She was worried about all the things that could go wrong during the trip to the doctor, so you would think she would have quickly completed her tasks to take care of him. 

I get that Bridgette wanted to let her hair down and take some risks to make her day go in quicker, but still, having sex with Rivers was a step too far. The scene with her throwing him off the bed was comical, but it also showed that she realized what she was doing is wrong. 

Nelson heard the whole thing, so what is she supposed to think of Bridgette? I dare say there's going to be a war of words in a few weeks and Rafi is going to flip out when he hears that Bridge was having sex while the kid was unwell. 

Rafi was committed to his recovery, but he, too, should have stayed with Larry. One day may be a big thing for him, but his son's health comes before his own, and there's no getting away with that. 

Nelson taking Bridgette's side about the vaccination was a big mistake. While Rafi seems very open about his struggles and cannot seem to lie, Nelson hid something significant from Rafi, and that's not a good way to start a relationship. 

I hope Bridgette is not the one who comes clean and that Nelson opens up about the truth before it's too late. For Bridgette, it was a win-win situation because she was not present when Larry got the vaccination.

She can act innocent when the time comes for the truth to come out, but Rafi will be skeptical of her because she wrestled with him about it moments before she disappeared to work. 

Ally Is Perfect - SMILF Season 1 Episode 2

I did wonder what Ally was up to when she thought it was a good idea to unload an expansive to-do list to Bridgette even after learning Larry was unwell. Bridgette threw in the word hospital in the hopes that Ally would take pity and send her straight there. 

What we found out in the process is that Ally is miserable. Bridgette thought her friend was living an idyllic lifestyle without a concern in the world. In reality, Ally did not go to her yoga class. 

She hit up McDonald's and ate her feelings. The twist that Ally is lesbian came out of nowhere, but it got Bridgette off the hook for her crazy behavior, so she just rolled with it. 

I do think Ally is a good friend for Bridgette, but I'm not sure Bridgette will be working for her when the truth comes out about her tryst with Rivers. That's not something Ally is going to be okay with. 

We got some much-needed insight into Tutu, and it was needed. She's also miserable and seems to be thinking about ways she can get back to the man she loved the most, Edmond. 

Tutu is Upset - SMILF Season 1 Episode 2

She is one of the better characters on the show because she is so unpredictable. For example, who listens to Angela's Ashes to cheer them up? That story is heartbreaking, so she has a very unconventional sense of humor. 

I thought she ran off with Edmond when Bridgette realized her mother had not made the dinner. The dinner was such a big deal to Tutu, so it would not have been that surprising if she ran off. 

If she's that unhappy, she should maybe ditch her current love and find the person who makes her happy. She's not getting any younger. 

"1,800 Filet-O-Fishes & One Small Diet Coke" was a slower episode, but it was still hilarious. Some scenes were a little bit too much, but this is a Showtime comedy series.
