What About Brian: What About Temptations
(S02E15) People should really start watching this show, especially if you've never seen an episode before. In terms of the show and its characters, everything is re-starting and beginning again. So it's a prime time to get into it because at this juncture, everything that happened before is starting to reach the point of irrelevancy.
That being said, there's a lot going on now to make up for the fact that most of the original storylines and dilemmas are dying off. New characters are being introduced, new romances are popping up, and the same mentality that got me hooked on the show finally seems to be resurfacing: everyone just wants to get laid.
First up to talk about is Brian. It seems like he's finally getting more of the story as the title of the show suggests he should. From his new haircut, to the new video game development job (he's back working with Dave!), to his crumbling romance with Briget, there is a lot going on with him right now. He seems to be doing well with the fact that his father is now an international criminal at large, but I'd probably be fine with that too if Stacy Keibler moved in downstairs from me.
Dave and Deena are finally headed back in the direction they started. He's moved back in and all signs point to them getting back together. The whole naked scene was funny stuff though. They both looked like a couple of ten year olds who just got a glimpse at their first porno mag.
Now as I mentioned, the cast is changing a lot. Another regular has been added in Tiffany Thiessen's new character, Natasha Drew. It's a bit of an interesting dynamic since she used to be Dave's intern and now she's his boss. It looks like she's got some interest in Adam so we'll see where that goes.
Speaking of Adam, I absolutely love where his story at work is going. He wasn't made a partner but he was placed on a new team who apparently has some shady stuff going on. Shady as in evidence tampering. This brings up a ton of questions, but most importantly, I want to know if Jimmy knew. And if so, has he been keeping quiet?
With all the changes, I'm very impressed with this show all over again. It took some time for it to find the right groove and I like where it's going.
