The Wedding Season 1, Episode 3

Around this time every year, I have some important decisions to make. In order to maintain a healthy social life, I have to begin to whittle down my list of must-see shows and drop a few from my viewing schedule. I've already given up on Chuck and based on the amount of episodes stacking up on my DVR, it looks like Reaper may be the next to go. Although I enjoy those shows, my interest in them just isn't strong enough to keep me coming back week after week. Samantha Who, on the other hand, has quickly become 1 show that I can't bare to miss (aside from the fact that I blog about it for you fine people!) With each new episode, I've become invested in the characters and their funny little quirks and I can't wait to see what they'll be up to as the plays out. Now for my recap: At the start of this week's show, Sam's dirty past was continuing to catch up with her. Her answering machine was full of nasty messages ranging from "We had to drain the entire pool because of you!" to "You knew I was allergic to peanuts!" My imaginative little brain had quite the time thinking up the situations that could have led to those comments. Before getting all My Name is Earl on us, Samantha simply changed her outgoing message to nice long "Soorrrrrryyyyy!" and chose to fix her past mistakes as the situation called for it. That moment came pretty soon after when Samantha showed up to be the bride's maid at a wedding she had been disinvited from. Apparently our sweet Samantha took bets on how long the marriage would last and that didn't exactly please the bride-to-be. With BFF Dina at her side, she set out to make amends for her wrong-doing. It turned out that the rest of her posse was there for the wedding as well. Todd was hired as the photographer and Andrea was there trying to buddy up to the family hoping to join them on their next yachting adventure. When she tried to explain her amnesia to the bride, old Samantha had already tried that excuse 4 years earlier. When Sam finally convinced the bride to forgive her, old Sam reared her ugly head again when she ditched Dina to party with her new friend. Poor Dina got stuck cutting up steak for an elderly relative while Sam came a bit closer to rekindling her romance with Todd. Later, as Sam got to know her old friend again another chunk of her memory filled in. Turns out she had actually convinced her friend to cheat on her fiance the night of her engagement justifying it by saying "It's only bad if you get caught!" Meanwhile, a drunk and rejected Dina sought consolation from Todd. Now that Sam was back in good graces with her old friend, she was asked to make a toast to the bride and groom. Her attempt to make a nice speech about marriage being a chance to start fresh became an all-out confessional where everyone involved in the wedding party spilled their dirty secrets. When Sam made a run for the exit to find Dina and flee the scene, Dina had already gone and it seemed that all hopes of her getting back with Todd had been dashed. Back at square one! Sam went back to her hotel room to find Dina but found her parents showering together instead. She went over to Dina's house to apologize to the one friend who never held a grudge and the two enjoyed a nice cup of cocoa. The episode ended with Todd reviewing the wedding pictures, deciding whether or not to delete Sam from the album (and his life.) I thought this was another strong episode. In the earlier episodes I was liking Andrea more than Dina and hoped to see more of the devil than the angel. This week I completely flip-flopped. I really enjoyed the small doses of Andrea and loved the awkwardness of Dina. Walking out of the wedding proved her to be more than just the dimwitted sidekick I had tagged her as. She's not going to be the butt of all the jokes as the loser hanging out with the cool kids. I also liked the limited use of Jean Smart. I was starting to agree with the comments that her character could be a bit over the top and this week was the perfect dosage. Can't wait for next week! Memorable Moments: -Dina trying to bond with Todd recalling the times they hung out in the hospital while Sam was in the coma: "Remember that mean clerk at the hospital gift shop? What was her deal?" -Mama Newly desperately wanting to remodel her bathroom. What's with her obsession with home makeovers? -Andrea's comment as the wedding became chaotic: "On the plus side, at least I won the pool." -Best line of the episode: "Step off beyotch or I'll cap yo' ass! I have no idea where that came from...I just meant to say 'Yes, me too!'" show less
