House Husbands–Season 5, Episode 4

This is the first episode that I’ve actually enjoyed this season.

While the previous three episodes weren’t bad, I feel that they have fallen flat and been a bit underwhelming.

Inevitably this episode was going to focus on the fallout of the revelation that Bernie wasn’t Mark’s biological father and that Mark would subsequently look for him. I felt that the door knocking was hilarious but a cliche. I also felt that it was a bit of a cliche to have Mark meet his biological father in bizarre and almost slapstick circumstances, that being said I liked that William turned out to be a kind man. Considering the circumstances, he could have gone either way. I felt that the plot overall was unrealistic, especially the ending, however they are times when you watch a TV show where you know certain plots would never happen in reality but it’s so good that you can live with that…this is one of those plots. Considering the heavy promotion of this plot and its dramatic reveal, I’m hoping this isn’t the end of it, otherwise it all would have been a total waste. I did appreciate the subtle reference to last season’s story arc of Justin discovering he’s not Angie’s biological father, as ridiculous as that arc was it’s good to know that the writers aren’t pretending that it doesn’t exist.
