Review of Friends and Lovers
Written by Lauren Maffeo
Ugh! I did not care for this episode at all. Elaine has turned into
Cinderella, taking Ally's and Jenny's scooters from them. Ling was seen
once after the first office meeting of the day, and Nellie was gone
completely after that. It's fine to add new characters, but not if it
means pushing the other character away.
WAY too much time was spent in the therapist's office, that was every
other scene and it was BORING and TOO MUCH. [PS If anyone knows the
therapist's name please e-mail me so I don't have to say "The Therapist"
for the rest of the season.]
I really hope Ally and Glenn don't work out, though I think they will
just cause that is the type of thing that happens on this show. I don't
want her to hook up with Ray either, I want her to strive towards
I liked Coretta and Glenn, but not Jenny. She was a big nuisance and I
didn't like how she was so much like Ally. Not as a person, but the way
her hair was the same and the way she followed Ally on her scooter. Also,
I do not like the Jenny-Glenn relationship, haven't we seen the whole
ex-lovers-working-as-friends scenario before?
I miss Renee!
As you can see, I was not pleased with this first episode. Hopefully next
week, which shows the possibility of a Judge Ling [?]! will be better.
Oh, and Jenny's case about the phone company? Pitiful and stupid.
