HOME ECONOMICS ventured into the dating and love scenarios this week. Three unlike situations for a different spot along the coupling journey. 

When should Connor (Jimmy Sisto) get back in the saddle again? How do you keep the flame alive for married Sarah (Caitlin McGee) and Denise (Sasheer Zamata)? And when is not okay for another woman to flirt with your husband? This was the sticky state of affair for Tom (Topher Grace) and Marina (Karla Souza).

This was not my favorite episode. It was okay, but I missed the quick banter between the siblings. I also needed to hear the โ€œheartโ€ of each character as they handled the angst of relationships. It did not move the story forward, but it did tell me what they each still have to work on. One interesting concept brought up was, does Sarah need Connor to feel superior? We will have to wait to see where this takes the viewers. 

HOME ECONOMICS is usually a subtle, humorous, comedic sitcom. I am giving it a pass this week. We all have our off days. I am looking forward to next week and where the writers will take us. 

HOME ECONOMICS is available to stream on ABC Television.
