Well, this show has done it. It showed me quite a different side of Ben. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get his sex face out of my head. In fact, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get anybody on this show’s sex face out of my head.

I nearly died of laughter when BJ went to the women’s support group to seek out Kate’s boyfriend’s ex-wife. It’s rare with a comedy that I would actually feel bad for a character. BJ spilling her heart out to the group about her troubles with Kate really resonated with me. I’ve been in BJ’s shoes before and it’s tough. When your best friend is in a relationship, especially a new one, you don’t spend as much time together as you used to. You just have to be honest with your friend and tell them how you really feel. BJ became so wise because of the support group. This actually helped Kate because BJ came to the conclusion that the whole sex face issue was more about Kate finding something, anything to ruin her relationship with Will. This is why I like this show so much. You have such incredibly funny moments mixed in with the genuinely sweet moments.

Mr. Entrepreneur Ben with the help of Tommy got a job as the snack cart driver at the country club. The wheels in Ben’s head are constantly turning. I’d love to get my hands on his idea book. At the club, Ben learns about the golf ball poachers and the light bulb in his head goes off. Of course! He’ll become a golf ball poacher. I just knew nothing good was going to come out of this. Ben ended up getting caught and when Tommy came to stop him, Mr. Carlson busted Tommy also. Now both of them were out of a job. I really felt bad for Tommy because he really enjoyed his job at the club. Things worked out in the end though and Mr. Carlson became Ben’s first investor for Rail Mall, one of his other brilliant ideas and Ben got Tommy his job back.

I would say my favourite moments of this episode were when BJ went to the women’s support group. That coffee scene was hilarious. Lucy Punch is just so flawless in her delivery. She’s quickly becoming one of my favourite actresses on television. One qualm I did have was the lack of Leslie Grossman. Leslie was my absolute favourite on Popular, so when I first saw her on this episode I got excited. It would be really cool if they brought her character back later on in the season.
