The Being Erica BS Detector: Season 3, Episode 6
TV time travel is great (see Lost, Quantum Leap, Doctor Who and episodes of Saved by the Bell when Zack would freeze time to speak directly with the audience). With that in mind, we ask you, Being Erica writers, why mess with a winning formula? Once again, this week’s episode involved zero time travel and way too much of everything else. We get that most good shows require a B plot, but this week we counted five different storylines. (Erica + Cassidy, Erica + Adam, Mom + Dad, Ivan + Julianne, Sam + Lenin). The Young and the Restless has more focus.
We’re not saying Episode 6 was entirely without praise-worthy moments. Erica drunk-girl dancing on a bar with a giant ice penis was pretty amazing, but consider this post an official threat from the devoted team behind the Being Erica BS Detector. We want more time travel. Either that or we want more frozen phalli, and we’re pretty sure the former is easier to pull off.
