House Husbands–Season 2, Episode 11

I’m glad to see the writing of the previous episode didn’t affect the writing of this one. I liked the exploration of the effect of high school bullying well into adulthood in Kane and Derek. It’s shitty that Derek became a success, however if he didn’t, there would be no story. It was a great choice of the writers to

House Husbands–Season 2, Episode 10

This episode was the worst episode ever. The camping trip was lame and the majority of the characters were just plain unlikeable. Mark and Justin in particular were portrayed in an unfavourable light as a corporate try-hard and a man in denial of his grief, respectively. Justin & Kane getting high off mushrooms was cringeworthy, although Kane’s advice was solid.

House Husbands–Season 2, Episode 8

Just passed the halfway point and this episode is the first in the second season to start in media res. I’m happy about this because I felt they were too dependent on it as a writing technique throughout the first season. The episode started with Gemma waking up in bed with Damo and then going back three days earlier. Having

House Husbands–Season 2, Episode 7

This episode was all about everyone dealing with the grief of losing Nicola. Nicola’s funeral was understated which I thought was a good choice, right up until Justin condemned it. I think his reaction was unrealistic but that could be easily written off as grief. I personally felt the way that her death was explained to all of the kids

House Husbands–Season 2, Episode 6

After a season-and-a-half, House Husbands has killed a character off to ensure their status as a drama. When the episode was first being promoted prior to going to air, there was the heavy emphasis and foreshadowing of one of the characters dying. I was driving myself crazy with an inner debate of who it would be, that being said it

House Husbands–Season 2, Episode 5

This episode was a strong one, but its strength was subtle. I personally found the P&C story very amusing, it was over-the-top but that was obviously a deliberate choice. I found having Lewis become the P&C President literally in his sleep the best part of all and an unexpected way to end the story–how much would it annoy Dimity to

House Husbands–Season 2, Episode 4

This episode explored the issue of male-female friendship. The male-female friendship debate was well played out with tension and good points during the tense dinner scene. I believe the tension between Ryan, Phoebe, Justin & Lucy was well-played out, as well as the tension between Damo, Lewis and Gemma, as well as Lewis and everyone due to his intoxication.
