Mr. Sunshine - S1 E8 - The Assistant

Roman gets assigned to be Alice's assistant. Crystal organizes a funeral at the center for a cleaning lady.

Spoilers after the jump.

This episode was flat out painful to watch and really I didn't draw much from it so let's hit some quick points and be done with it. Everything that happened was so contrived. Why would Alice hand off sending weepy emotional e-mails to her boyfriend off to Roman of all people? This astoundingly terrible set-up rendered the entire rest of that storyline completely unwatchable. Why would Alonzo's letters end up in Alice's hands? How would Alonzo just happen to still be married? Why would Alice let Roman know anything about her affairs whatsoever given that a) he's an idiot and b) he lives with Ben? Everything about it was so astoundingly stupid. The other storyline wasn't really any better. It looked like it was written purely to give Crystal something to do this week and it really didn't go anywhere or have any kind of satisfactory conclusion, the whole thing was muddled even up to the supposed problem with the rodeo clashing with the funeral of which nothing came. This was just terrible.

"Mr. Sunshine" airs Wednesdays on ABC at 9:30 pm EST.
