Quick spoilers for last night's "My Boys" coming up just as soon as I take a nap...
We're one week away from the "summer finale"(*), and most of "Jack and Bobby"(**) was devoted to setting up cliffhangers that will have to be dealt with there. So we spend a lot of time foreshadowing another Jack/Bobby wrestling match, and Mike going to bed with Mimi Rogers, and, in the one that I'm sure they thought would be shocking but was actually the most obvious, Kenny and Stephanie hooking up.
(*) Have I mentioned lately how annoying I find most basic cable scheduling?
(**) Which makes me think of the Greg Berlanti show more than it does the Kennedys, and I'm not sure what that says about me.
Anyway, maybe some or all of these payoffs will be worth the time spent setting them up, but it made much of "Jack and Bobby" feel labored. What entertainment there was to be found came on the margins, like the guys' quest to not nap, or Mike getting sloshed on wine. (The latter may only have been amusing because my wife interjected "I'm not drinking any f---ing merlot!" in the middle of it.)
One reminder: next week's episode airs at 10 instead of 9:30 because TBS is airing two "Bill Engvall Show"s. It'll be a regular length episode, but if you don't have a DVR season pass of some kind that will automatically note the change, plan accordingly.
What did everybody else think?
