Episode Review Written by Rap541
This show is still on the air! I *know*!
Ironically I am totally jet lagged from flying from Atlanta to Phoenix this afternoon. Also this show is on superlate! Also really? We're really whoring out Jeremy?
Well... Apparently we can't whore out Amy and Matt's *reconciliation* since they've been living separately yet are still married and will still reconcile as they are *Christian* and showing us all how CHRISTIAN MARRIED COUPLES handle their issues.
Also I flipped over from PBS to TLC and seriously the Duggar parents need to move past their ridiculous issues and let their girls marry.Also Michelle seems quite horrified at the idea of the daughters marrying.
Oh look, Matt bitching how he was under so much stress. The credits have changed to include mostly new scenes. Matt is in his creepy office calling Amy and openly pissed she won't answer her phone so he heads to her house and demands answers. This is about clothes? And Jeremy's graduation? And there's some debate about whether they can attend and its their first trip since their separation!
Zach and Jeremy Skype. Jeremy plans to propose. Its sort of sweet except that this Skype is clearly done for the cameras. Also, not to rip on Jeremy's moves but a LOT of people design their own wedding ring. Unless there's a clown with an ax on it, lemme guess the ring won't be that outside the box.
Amy goes on about her pop up kitchen. She wants Zach to help. Zach is wearing a product placement t-shirt.... Meanwhile in Santa Barbara. Jeremy is all "Audrey can't make it". Also the kids play soccer for the cameras. Huh Jeremy wonders about getting a job. Also its amusing that Jeremy is a tenor while Jake seems to be leaning baritone/bass.
More Santa Barbara. So Jeremy is showing off his work. I'm not terribly impressed that he's apparently displaying one of his first photos and also we only see one photo. There's an endless montage of Amy going on about having a kid. We mostly get platitudes here but I will forgive it. Matt and Zach go on about it. I kinda recall that for me its actually 2am on Wednesday since I am jet lagged.
Amy is all about her pop up kitchen. She really has no idea how working in a restaurant is difficult. She cooks brussel sprouts. Now Jeremy is ring shopping in los Angeles and is late! He bitches slightly about the cost of the ring.
Have I mentioned how tired I am? I was at Dragoncon this weekend, in Atlanta, and flew back to Phoenix this afternoon where time clicked back a few hours. Its not helping that this episode is a lot of staged snooze.
So Jeremy has a ring that looks pretty typical but ok. Matt and Amy have an awkward talk about her pop up restaurant. Matt plays dumb and also notes in a confessional that Amy has NEVER worked in a restaurant. She wants him to attend "downtown" and he protests but agrees.
Somehow Jeremy flew home after graduating without having a job and helps with Amy's pop up. In theory Amy is making the kids work. Ah Zach dumps salad and wants to use it but is told no by Jake of all people. Amy also merrily fucks up orders.
Honestly this is like a super whiny Hells Kitchen. Matt is basically a condescending ass about it. It's all so polite and cold. Also Amy has no clue what restaurant life is like.
Jeremy is planning to propose at the trestle. Jeremy pretentiously uses a typewriter to write to her. Jeremy wanders in to tell Amy and Matt that he's proposing which kinda goes against the facebook portrayal of Amy finding out after the fact because it was all a surprise. I am curious how far they go here.
I also got a fantastic hat at Dragoncon :)
The scene between Matt, Amy and Jeremy feels totally staged. Matt immediately notes how he wants Jeremy off his insurance. I would like to point out that Jeremy is clearly based at home. Also Amy and Matt discuss the pending proposal in real time even tho I am pretty positive facebook indicates Amy was away for the proposal. I also note how the camera crew was ON SITE for Jer's proposal. Seriously folks.... he totally knows the cameras are there. Jeremy is totally complicite with whoring out his relationship. Did Jeremy even pay for the ring?
If this wasn't being filmed, I would find the typewriter proposal cute. But because it is being filmed, I really have to ask how much dramatic coaching Jeremy got in order to make a scene. Oh look Audrey speaks and she's essentialy in articulate! And look, Matt and Amy faking being together when in fact they openly posted how apart they were when this happened. Remember folks - when Jeremy proposed, Matt and Amy had just announced their already lengthy separation. It's also amusing how Jeremy is branding himself with the like a letter stuff. I mean, the proposal via typewriter was a tad too on the point.
