Mad Love - S1 E12 - Friends

Tiffany states her desire to leave New York. Connie gets hired as a personal assistant to a celebrity chef who Kate is eager to befriend.

Spoilers after the jump.

Sadly I'm not well versed enough on TV chefs to suss who Chef Linda was a parody of, but it sure seemed like a not so subtle jab at someone. Connie quickly finds herself out of her depth dealing with her incessant demands and is likely irked that her friend is suddenly BFF's with her employer. Hating the job, she quits/is fired and Kate, despite having been given the opportunity to rub shoulders with Seinfeld, Tracy Morgan et al, instantly sides with Connie over Chef Linda which was nice of her.

Somewhat implausibly, Tiffany jumps at the chance for a date with Larry though it is soon clumsily revealed that she just hates being alone and will happily accept attention from anyone she finds friendly. Larry despite his numerous faults is able to recognize this and rein himself in. Through his actions, and Jim's remorse after the smoothie related accident with the valuable book, Tiffany finds that there are nice people who actually do care about her. It's implied that all her other New York friends dropped her following the divorce and it's still not real clear why she was dumped by her husband. I'm not even sure who or what her husband is (other than very wealthy)

I'm struggling to find too much substance here, as per usual. At least we learned that all our characters are very loyal people. That's still not enough for me to accept Larry as a memetic sex god though. It seemed like there was going to be a lot of upheaval, but ultimately the status quo is still in place. Will Tiffany become a regular? It was implied she wanted Jim and/or Larry to represent her though it's implied previously that they are corporate lawyers. Details aren't really important to this show, so it's difficult to tell.

"Mad Love" airs Mondays on CBS at 8:30 pm EST.
