October 30, 2006: No Fault Divorce Season 1, Episode 10

I liked that this episode, even though it was a repeat, showed us what Richard and Christine were like when they got married. It was nice watching flashbacks from their wedding video and seeing them crack up at the vows. I would be cracking up too if I had to say, "Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup." Then Richard said, "This is silly, dude." It was a perfect moment. But I found it funnier that Matthew wore a T-shirt tuxedo with a cape and couldn't find himself in any of the family pictures. Matthew cracks me up every time he says something. I don't know what it is. Hamish Linklater is just charming, and he's always funny. Like when they were watching the wedding video and he was trying to find himself in it and Christine said that he couldn't be missed because there wasn't another guest wearing a T-shirt tuxedo and a cape and he said, "How did I not get laid that year?" It was beautiful comedy. I didn't like the marriage counselor, either. She was annoying. She didn't recognize Christine, but she was all over Richard when she saw him. I would be upset if my marriage counselor slept with my husband, too. Not really appropriate. Christine did read too much into it, though, when she thought that her marriage ended because the therapist was trying to seduce her husband. I really liked when Richard said, "Unlike our son, who signs up for things and quits almost immediately, I sign up for things and stay way too long. I'm still giving money to the Kerry campaign. I'm happy you killed our marriage when you did." That was a nice moment. Another nice moment was when Barb, the ever-wonderful and funny Wanda Sykes, admitted to Christine that she was the one who ended her marriage. While it was harsh, it was partially true and it was an honest moment. I love Wanda Sykes, by the way. She's just hilarious. My favorite Barb moment: When she purposely tried to make Richard nervous. Earlier, he had said he didn't like coming to the gym because it was a woman's gym and he didn't like hearing conversations about cycles and flow. Then Barb came into Christine's office while Richard was there and says, "Everyone who works out on Wednesday is on the same cycle and you're out of maxi pads. It's like a CSI crime scene out there." Once Richard excused himself, Barb admitted that she loved doing that to him. My second favorite Barb moment was when she was captured on the wedding video telling Richard, "Can I borrow 10 bucks? I didn't realize there was going to be a cash bar. You've got some ugly groomsmen. They look like pallbearers. If I'm going to go home with one of them, I have to get my drunk on." She's just so funny. And she doesn't mind that Christine calls her her "black friend." When she was telling Christine the truth about how Christine was responsible for ending her marriage, she said, "I've been your black friend for 25 years." I just love Wanda Sykes. The therapist, however, I didn't like at all. For one, she slept with her clients. For another, she just seemed so fake. She also didn't seem like a very good marriage counselor, either. I did like this episode, even though it was an old one. It showed more of what Christine and Richard were like as a couple and what happened to end their marriage. I especially liked the flashback at the end when they were watching the video and you see a guy wearing a cape and then Matthew saying, "There I am." Even wearing a cape, he's funny and adorable. show less
