S02.E08: Welcome to Bowling

Recommended Posts

Quote

With Calvin down a teammate for his annual bowling championship, Dave offers to fill in and soon finds his mediation skills put to the test when he meets the competition: Calvin's arch-rivals, the Pink Ladies. Also, Gemma and Tina dare to face off against each other for the top ranking in an arcade game.

Dave can bowl! It's thanks to him that he and Calvin won. Gemma and her flying elbows cracked me up, lol. I also laughed at all the references to Dave's mother's "special friend."

The Pink Ladies must have not been all that great as bowlers, if all Dave and Calvin needed was one strike to win, after Calvin was throwing gutters, or knocking down 1 or 2 pins each time until the end.

I want a trophy cup full of nachos. Excellent idea, Calvin!

No Grover. I wonder where he was when all the adults were at the bowling alley and Marty and Malcolm weren't watching him. Didn't miss him, though.

I like that even when Tina and Gemma are feuding, it still feels like they're friends.

Tina's "I got two grown kids, ain't nobody thinking about that!" refrain cracked me up. And I like that Calvin is on board with being Dave's friend - when he calls it out, when he was doing the victory dance ("I'm-a pass it to ya!"), and when he was all "hell yeah, let's fill this trophy with nachos!" You know it means the world to Dave.

I didn't miss Grover either.

The best part of the episode was Dave reacting rationally to the insults thrown out by the pink ladies and they not even being able to react because of how off field he always was.

Gawd help me, I'm actually starting to like this show.

I only started watching it because I was sort of curious about Bob Hearts Abishola, and it was easier to just let this show burble on in the background than it is to remember to turn on the TV or change the channel.  But so help me, it actually caught my attention a time or two, and I started watching a few episodes this season, and I'm finding I like it much better than the incessant promos last year told me I would.  You know the ones.  The "Grover?!?  Grover Johnson!?!" commercials that you could not avoid?  Which actually caused me to avoid the show altogether?  CBS needs better promo monkeys.

I am starting to catch up with this and I like it. I have to credit the actors, three of whom have been favorites of mine with excellent sitcom cred (Arnold, Behrs and Cedric). I’d never seen the Dave guy before, but he fits in well with team.
