HOME ECONOMICS kept me on hold this week. I waited the entire episode for Alec to arrive at Connor’s (Jimmy Tatro) birthday party for his ex-wife, Emily (Justine Lupe). Alec was supposedly Emily’s new boyfriend. I was patient; There was no pay-off. Nothing really happened.
I usually adore this show and look forward to it each week, but it was truly a “meh” moment. The only sparkle was when Tom (Topher Grace) and his wife, Marina, (Karla Souza) tried to flirt with other people at Emily’s party. Funny,
real-life humor that one day will be an eye-opener for every married couple with young children.
I am forgiving HOME ECONOMICS. Every series can have an off night. Just don’t let it happen again. I need my fix of sibling comedy.
HOME ECONOMICS is available to stream on ABC Television
