Guest Episode Review written by Rap541:
Ah, the wedding episode!
Some previous scenes of Matt and Amy arguing.
So its one month to the wedding and we get the trade out parade. Huh, they basically are getting the dress on extremely short notice even though it normally takes six months… funny that. I actually liked the first one she tried more than the second, or the third. I find it interesting that there seems to be some unexplained rush to the wedding.
Now Jeremy and Zach are getting custom suits for their product placement tradeouts. Also Zach is Jeremy’s best man. Jeremy’s wedding colors are “floral”.
Three weeks to the wedding. To keep with a long running theme from many episodes, Jeremy has dreamed of getting married on the farm since he was a wee little boy. It’s probably the first time we’ve heard Jeremy speak more than a sentence or two and he’s still not very articulate. He’s also pretty openly planning to own the land and have his own house there. Which is interesting, his assumption about getting it
Two weeks to the wedding and we’re getting more tradeouts. Jeremy sounds and looks bored as hell at the table setting odyssey. To give Audrey some credit, she seems quite in love.
Jeremy, in his haybale about his new mom in law looks totally bored.
Now Jeremy is taking his mom to lunch because he just wants to hang out with her. He looks like he’s got a limb in a trap and wants to gnaw it off the whole time. Seriously, this scene was really forced. So Audrey is working, and Jeremy is not.
Oh look it’s Matt’s drama. He’s possibly dying and very clearly lies on camera when he says “Jeremy’s wedding is next week”. Now Amy is heading over to his man cave for the first time and takes him to the doctor. Amy also lies about this happening “a week before Jeremy’s wedding”.
Look, I know a number of you are going to bitch and moan so here’s my objection. Was the lie necessary? Because it is a lie – per Matt’s facebook, he was in the hospital as of …. Which FYI is not “a week before Jeremy’s wedding” – so does the lie add anything?
Now we’re “five days to the wedding” and Zack and Jeremy are merrily stating dad is still in the hospital as they head off to paintball with huh, product placement folks. Gosh it’s like this wedding is getting a whole shit ton of freebies for selling their private moments. And huh, per the show, Matt is theoretically in the hospital until three days before the wedding which leads Jeremy to sagely lie to us how worried he is that Dad won’t make it to the wedding.
Matt concedes that it’s awkward for his wife that he left to tend him as its three days before the wedding and he’s JUST OUT OF THE HOSPITAL.
So in other words, when it comes to the show, Matt really has no problem lying if it makes him the center of attention.
Oh look, Matt is of course up and about for the wedding. To be fair it looks nice. I personally like that Matt actually gave Amy a genuine compliment for a change.
There’s a nice shot of Audrey pre-makeup, and she should go natural more often. That’s a complement by the way. Somehow Audrey ended up with a used dress that she bought on line? Because that doesn’t quite jibe
Now we have WonderJer dressing. Then Zack and Jer have a nice moment as brothers. Then Audrey is presented with a cow brand. Oh look! There’s special hashtags to unlock wedding photos! I wonder if Jeremy and Auj were monetarily compensated for these commercials?
Matt quickly lets Jeremy know how nervous etc he was. Honestly, this is all pretty typical wedding stuff. Is the preacher the famous John Mark Comer? Matt calls Jeremy a man. The bridal party is huge and one of them is holding a sign that says “sexy baby”?
Is that Audrey’s dad holding a sign saying “she’s yours”. I like the color of the flowers in Audrey’s hair. Jeremy’s vows did not involve sharing her with Jesus, interestingly enough. Audrey’s did, I will give her that. But seriously folks, I’ve been to some Jesusy weddings and this was pretty plain jane in comparison.
I did like the shots in the flowers. The reception also looked nice. In fairness this wedding looked a ton better than any of the “wedding” episodes . Zach’s speech was cute, Matt of course chokes up. I also think it was sweet that Amy and Jeremy danced. And it was nice to see practical bridemaids dresses.
I really didn’t care for the hospital drama.
