This episode made us sad, super sad, sleep all day and forget it’s shabbat sad. Luckily it’s mid-season so we must be on an upward arc. Right? Or will it get worse before it gets better? That said, Laizy we loved the pop culture references in this episode and we like that like us- all your pop culture knowledge comes from the mid-nineties. On the the recap…
Realer than Nati eating his feelings with saturated fat and sodium
That wedding musician with his soul bearing Baal Shem Tov niggun stepped out of the Carlbach moshav. We were waiting for him to offer them a special deal on pot.
Of course Hodaya’s class of girls were waiting outside to dance in a circle around her. Nothing is more exciting to teenage girls then simcha dancing and nothing is more annoying to someone over 30.
And Hodaya would totally blow Yifat off and then call her repeatedly on Shabbat and expect her to leave her meal to comfort her. Yifat- you’re an enabler! +60
Hodaya Land! Reut knows how to call it– keenest observations on the series of the show. +20
Those were some pretty invitations. +5
Reut’s work voice is awesome. She is all business all the time. She is our hero. +10
When Tehilla is going to dump him, Nati makes a Hail Mary pass and says he killed someone. Are you really surprised? This guy used his own mothers death as a pickup line +100. Also Tehilla ate it up– hippie girls love damaged goods. +40
Plus +5 for consistency for Nati’s coffee order from past episodes, and how his lack of caring about foam shows his descent into the pit of despair.
Who is that doctor Nati talks to at the beginning? and why isn’t he a regular? #freshmeat +30
Nati is constantly getting an emotional beat down on this show, it is pretty hard to watch. We guess this is karma for being such an asshole. +20
Hahaha, bitchy judgey doctor commenting on Nati’s snack choices.. We like you, even if you ruined Nati’s life. +90
Yifat is super pissed that Amir has a job so low on the totem pole. Excited to see the cat fight between her and Reut. +10
Avri says he wants to walk down to “I will always love you.” We died. He is the best, now and forever. +1,000
Amir’s speech about doing anything for the baby even cleaning garbage was so cute. Amir, will you be my baby daddy? +25
Ok, Hodaya’s freakout seemed totally real. We get her hesitation. She thought she would have it all figured out by the time she got married and she doesn’t. She was very perceptive when she says that she is most afraid that when she becomes a wife and mother she will stop searching. Because you know that’s true. +100 (But even though we get it, she can’t dump Avri, this is by far the best thing that will ever happen to her)
Faker than Reut not loving people making coffee for her
Seriously, wouldn’t Reut love that? Maybe she has a heart deep down inside. Wash.
Strignbean floppy hair guy didn’t get fired? Ugh, he still likes Reut clearly which he demonstrates with his annoyingly patronizing ways -10.
Azarya makes challah? Like he has a skill in real life? We don’t buy it. -15.
Hodaya didn’t have a song picked out? Are you kidding? Shayna has had for one a long time. I mean, that’s totally normal (cough cough erevshelshohanim cough cough even though its supersappy) And like they would have agreed to that weird niggun.
Why does Yifamir never have anyone else over or at the least get invited out? Oh right, all their friends are major bums and or secular. -10.
We feel denied because that could have been some major Amir Reut awkward time, and we did not get to enjoy that. -10, but another five back for that coffee line, Amir. Nice work.
Wait, Yifat is happy? Sure surprised us. -10.
Man, when Dr. Brenner was crossed out of all the rotations, we wanted to cry. That was way harsh, Tai.
Hodaya kisses Avri in front of the ulpana? She must be begging for a talking to from Ulpana Tamar Ross. Maybe TR can talk some sense into her. STAT.
Amir was really good at being the secretary. Really good. What about that ego of his? Maybe this was his Devil Wears Prada Moment, and Reut is Meryl Streep. -10 for that lack of ego we came to know and love.
Hodaya’s Seinfeld reference was superb. Susan and George, that brought back some memories. But Hodaya grew up with the head of a yeshiva as a father, she never watched Seinfeld. We don’t buy it, but clearly Srugim hearts Seinfeld.
Overall this was a great episode. The problems seemed real and we are all about anxiety and depression. Also Israeli shows subtitled in the Spanish? http://tvisraelisubtitulada.blogspot.com/
Thank you Internet. See you next week!
