I cannot tell you guys how genuinely giddy I was when Ewe Search made its triumphant return to the screen.
They honestly put more effort/money into the graphic design of this fake search engine than they did into either of Will’s magazine covers, which were designed by Theo, an inkjet printer, and some old pinking shears. And while I appreciate the way that Hope and Aiden are able to talk through their issues, didn’t anyone find it weird that Chase somehow knew Hope’s maiden name? The kid can barely figure out which direction to run to “meet up with his friends” who are “just over there,” but he grasps the concept that, 30-odd years and five marriages to the same man ago, Hope had a different last name that would make the Ewe Search results more complete? Okay, sure.
Meanwhile, totally normal teenage girl Paige continues to fret to her friend, Mary Beth II: Electric Boring-loo, about her mother’s sex life.
If I were on the fence about whether to like Daphne (I’m not — she has already annoyed the crap out of me in her two appearances), I certainly would have been tipped into the No category simply because her response to Paige was not, “Ew! Stop spending so much time thinking about who nailed your mother!”
I will grant, though, for as much as Paige sucks, a lot of the stuff surrounding her has been good. JJ and Abigail’s conversation about Jack was great — the actors work very well as siblings when Abigail isn’t written like his 85-year-old aunt — and the Jennifer/Eve stuff is always fun.
