March 30, 2007: Missed Connections Season 1, Episode 8

Although the official name of this episode is "Get a Room," I think "Missed Connections" is more appropriate since everyone's romantic life is out of whack. "730,000 apartments on 23 square miles of land" and everyone's looking for love. And an apartment. Whitney, Carlos and even Steven are on the hunt for new digs. Whitney wants to get out of the place she shared with her scheming ex and "put down roots." Carlos seems ready to have a place on his own, and Steven is considering getting a place where he can give Max an actual bedroom and possibly have more privacy for himself and Anya. The best laid plans. The whole "missed connections" thing starts when a gargoyle falls off the roof of Laura's building. A mystery man is disappointed he didn't have the courage to speak to her at the time so he posts a short message to her on craigslist. Laura responds to his post and they meet for coffee. Laura's expression upon meeting her mystery man is priceless. He did seem pretty young, but sometimes a little harmless fun with someone who isn't long-term material is exactly what you need. And that's exactly what Whitney found with hunky Jason Lewis (who recently guest-starred on Brothers & Sisters). Well, there were two connections but Whitney isn't looking for anything long-term. She tells him she's tired of serial monogamy and needs to spend some time alone and find out who she is. Unfortunately, Todd would have been the next-door neighbor to her dream apartment, and she just isn't willing to deal. With the way Manhattan real estate is, I would have advised her to keep the apartment and just see what happens with Todd. Things would only be awkward if she let them be. And as a bonus, if she gets lonely she can "borrow a cup of sugar" from him whenever the mood hits. Is that crass? He is very pretty. I'm a little disappointed in Carlos' story this week. If he wasn't such a nice guy who genuinely seems to care about Mae, I might call him a stalker. Mae tells Carlos she isn't ready for anything more than a friendship, although later seems to change her mind. I just knew she'd somehow find Carlos had moved on (a little quickly, in my opinion) as soon as she showed up at his place. And why would his realtor Lisa leave her own apartment, get in a cab with Carlos to his apartment, get out to kiss him goodbye - only to jump back in the cab? Maybe she was on her way somewhere, but I think it was kind of sloppy storytelling. And the moment Carlos walked into a furnished apartment, I knew it was Lisa's place. The previews last week kind of clued me in, but there really is no such thing as a furnished apartment in Manhattan. Well, there are furnished apartments but they're scary (unless they're super high-end, which Carlos can't afford). I was not prepared for Carlos' roommate to be Anya. You know what that means, right? The ecstasy Steven accidentally took when he went trick-or-treating with Sam belonged to Carlos. I admit I don't think we know enough yet about Carlos to believe those were his drugs, but it seems a little out of character. Maybe Mae saved herself a world of hurt by rejecting Carlos before they really had a chance to go anywhere. I mean, he seems way too responsible to be doing drugs. But I digress. Back to Anya. Since Shiri Appleby is merely a guest star, I knew her days were numbered. The "other man" obstacle was interesting to throw into the mix. I loved Steven's response to Anya's "nothing's happened yet." Clearly something has happened if she's even willing to give Lucas a chance. But I'm not complaining. I think he's now one step closer to having Laura in his life, which would make me very happy. My favorite line from this episode: "It's the best fake sex I've had in a very long time." show less
