Well, wow. Shortest Engagement Ever? It seems so. Tehila goes back to Azarya after dumping a weepy Nati, and SRUGIM SPAWN IS BORN while Amir is playing with goats. Of course. But Reut, the only responsible one of the whole show, holds down the fort. Baruch. Hashem. To the penultimate recap!! Continue reading
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…

Srugim is back! Man, that month of our life without Srugim WAS BRUTAL. Wow. Oh Man. With that and the loss of Blair and Chuck, we barely survived.
So what happens in Episode 13? Hodaya dreams a wacky dream, Yifat and Amir mope (but Yifat goes to tel aviv!!), Nati gets famous, and Mazel tov Abba!! Shout out to the email we received with your detailed analysis. You know who you are. On to the recap…. Continue reading
Wow. Wow. Wow. The theme of our episode is mekach taut, which is a halachic term for a commercial (or marital cause Judaism is like that) transaction done under false pretenses. This episode is all about what happens when the other person isn’t quite what you expected, and what you do with that information. Amir continues his exploration into his Sephardi-ness and tests Yifat, Roi finally comes out to Reut, and Hodaya reveals to Asaf that she is a bit older than what she originally said and gets sad AND AVRI COMES BACK AND WE SCREAMED IN JOY. That alone would make it amazing, but combined with the gut wrenching emotions all around and the return of the old Sephardi man trio, we think it was the best episode yet all season. Let the recap begin.
Wow, that episode wasn’t so depressing. Yay! Roi and Reut continue their love affair in the trash of Jerusalem (suck it little sister–Reut is a HOTTAY), Nati gets dumped by a crazy frummy settler after one date in the Botanical Gardens (so pretty! We love that place) and starts to re-examine Judaism, Hodaya continues to hang with the sketchy bartender and Yifat has a pregnant scare–too bad it was just some bad Thai food! Hehe.
Realer then a Gabbai trying to set you up when you are saying Kaddish
-Nati’s beard. Of course Nati thinks he is rocking the beard. Guys love beards but they rarely look good in them. They think it makes them look manly and powerful. In reality, they look like the uni-bomber. (see the cast of Mad Men). Thankfully he finally dumped it. +15
-Amir’s apron when cooking. Clearly Amir is still pissed about giving up his hat in the last episode because that apron is just out of the bag earmarked by Yifat for the trash. +10
-Food poisoning from the Thai food? We think that’s a symbol of the poisonous effect of past loves, or just how Amir sucks at life. UH OH. +10.
-We are loving Roi. The scene when he is shaving, he fact that he is a lawyer, his love of volunteerism. But we are a little nervous this is all too good to be true and are nervously waiting for other shoe to drop. No one is that perfect. We are waiting to find out his secret. (One of our commentators DSM III suggested he may be gay a few weeks ago. A definite possibility but waiting for more.) + only 30 because we think there is something going on behind those perfect eyebrows.
-That 18 year old settler girl was true to form. 18 year olds are super self righteous and nauseatingly pious when they are at Midrasha, ask Sarah, she was one of them. Wanting someone who learns. What does that even mean? BUT we thought this was going to be the manic pixie girl who would save Nati — but in frummie format. Alas it was not to be. We like the line about how Nati and Kriat Shema, the two would never mix. +25 Continue reading
