I'm sorry, but I just love this show. Each week, I love it more and more (as long as they keep Peter Gabriel and the mother from Malcolm in the Middle off the show -- or at least don't bring them on together).
I think last week is probably going to be the season high. I'm okay with being wrong. But I really do not know how they could top Whitney catching Alex masturbating. But I didn't know how they could top the episode where Whitney went to her therapist and they topped that.
At any rate, I love the show. I love Whitney and Alex, Lily and Neal, and Roxanne and Mark. Listed that way because Roxanne and Mark are not a couple.
At least not yet.
Should they be?
I was thinking that last night while watching the episode. Roxanne was giving blood in Mark's police station's blood drive. And Mark was giving blood. And they had to tell the women their number of sex partners. Mark said 58 and Roxanne didn't say her number out loud.
Later it would turn out Roxanne's is somewhere in that neighborhood (I think -- Mark says it was two digits and thinks one was a four) but Mark lied about his own.
He's only been with seven.
That surprised me because he's always talking about sex.
But anyway, they had a really nice scene together on that aspect (the truth aspect). And they work so well together that it would be very easy to make them a couple.
But I think I'd prefer them to just be good friends. Roxanne gets to show a different side to Mark than she does to Whitney and Lily and Mark's different with Roxanne than he is with Neal and Alex.
And if they were three couples it would be like the end of Friends where you kept expecting them to pair up Joey and Phoebe just because everyone else had already boarded Noah's Arc.
If they do become a couple, I'm not going to be mad. I'm on the fence on the issue but I really lean towards just keep them friends.
