It’s a step.
Well, that’s certainly committing to something finally which I guess makes it an improvement over the past couple episodes. They even put a lot more effort into the little Anastasia scene this week, complete with little daydream/imagined sequences instead of just one long endless drone. Blandy McBland still has close to zero comedic chemistry (and needless to say, any other chemistry either) with the characters and would probably be best relegated to a prop to keep him out of the scene as much as possible. They probably could’ve done without the pink, sparkly filter every minute or two as well.
Three parts this week. Tea and cake with Gin which was the lamest by far. Yes, she’s boyish, has small breasts, and Blandy is obtuse. These are all hilarious jokes that can take up a third of the episode. At least it wasn’t more. Anastasia’s random conversation was much better than last week’s, even if Blandy’s main contribution was to just yell at random points. The bath was trashy, but at least they didn’t half-ass it like they’ve done for pretty much every other episode. No pussy footing around here. On the other hand, it did not devolve into the lotion orgy that it was clearly meant to if the bad porn music and constant lillies for the entire thing were any indication.
