Review: The Crazy Ones 1x05 "She's So European"

Original Air date: Oct. 24, 2013

Sydney is anxious to impress a client for a new senior dating website, Helena.  Likewise both Simon and Zach vie for Helena’s affections and both end up receiving them.  Sydney tries to come to terms with not only realizing her father has a sex life, but also with the new shared information of his and Zach’s personal faces and preferences from her new best friend Helena.  Not to mention discovering that all her secrets shared with Helena have now found the ears of both Simon and Zach.

At the same time Andrew takes lead on recording a voice over with Fred Melamed for the first time.  After a few struggles he stands up for himself and finally gains the respect from Melamed. 
It was a pretty strong episode.  It was funny and an entertaining watch.  I enjoyed this episode more than last week's but I think "Bad Dad" has been my favorite episode so far. 

Favorite bits of the episode?
  • James Wolk and Robin Williams playing with each other in southern accents.
  • Andrew screaming “erase my browser history” when he thought he was going to die.
  • The entire scene with the mayonnaise jar.  The faces, the grunting, and Sydney screaming about the children or something.
  • Fred Melamed picking Helena up by using a rom-com movie trailer voice.

In Conclusion: I think I’ll never be able to make a sandwich with mayo again without laughing.  I wouldn't say no to more Zach and Sydney scenes because I want to ship them, if only because I’m projecting because I really like James Wolk.  I admit it, I’m shallow. Don’t judge.
