The Nine Lives of Chloe King Review: Ripped Off

by at . Comments

Stupid promos! Always deceiving. The line about love and life that Brian said in this trailer was taken from letters written to his mother, not anything he uttered to Chloe. Don't you hate when that happens?

A Big Sniff

Instead, our opening featured Alek and Chloe, and he gave her roses. I keep wanting to think of him as a bad boy, but he really hasn't done anything to deserve that description. He's an all-new kind of guy, a snarky, sassy and daring dude with good intentions and the actions to match. Confusing!

Frank's daughter, Vanessa, joined Meredith, Frank and Chloe for dinner and she seemed like a bit of a dud. It kind of made me feel sorry for Frank. Watching Meredith and Chloe's great relationship must have made him feel kind of ripped off. But it was a pretty cool trick Chloe used that got her to open up about her boyfriend so they could talk.

Too bad for Chloe that their chat came back to bite her in the butt. Vanessa ran away from home, making Chloe feel guilty and obligated to help. From what I could tell, she and Vanessa were fairly close in age, but their level of maturity was miles apart. 

I absolutely loved that Alek went to Paul for advice on Chloe, and loved even more the questions Paul asked him in exchange for answers about Chloe. Paul and Amy need more screen time. If I haven't said it before, the cast of Chloe King fits together seamlessly. Their magic has made the show enjoyable.

Overall, this felt like a filler episode. The promos were misleading, and while I enjoyed the small developments between Alek and Chloe, there wasn't much more to it than that to move the story forward.

The worst part was Jasmine being used. That was unacceptable and unnecessary. Rezzer could have had his son followed and gotten more information. It also ended Meredith's relationship with Frank, which I found quite enjoyable.

While we wait anxiously for word on Season 2, was this really the time for filler? I didn't think so. What did you think? Happy or left wanting? The latter for me, with one exception. The kiss. Was that enough to save "Responsible" in your eyes?

So disappointing and discouraging for the show to be canceled. I hate channels that cancel a show without giving it a fair chance.

If there's someone out there that makes you feel like that, then you should tell them how you feel.

Careful. The more beautiful things are, the more prickly they can be.
