Franklin & Bash Review: Are You Gay Enough?

by at . Comments

After last week's subpar Franklin & Bash episode, "L'affaire Du Coeur" brought back the boys I know and love. I couldn't help but laugh from the opening scene, where Peter explained to the court in that their client's defense was that, well...

When they had a chalk board full of diagrams to prove their point I knew this was going to be a fun hour.

Peter Second Chance

Who would have thought that Peter and Jared would be called upon to defend a judge? From the perplexed looks on their faces, I'd say they never saw that one coming. Although I thought Margaret's affair with the prisoner was far fetched, it certainly gave us an interesting twist. 

But I was bothered by Janie's defense of Margaret when Peter questioned why the judge was charged - but Margaret was not for the same relationship. If her response had been that Judge Kohler was the one in a greater position of power, I could have lived with that. Instead she tried to make Margaret out as a hapless victim he somehow took advantage of. 

I found that hard to accept. Margaret was a smart woman, a prominent DA and certainly capable of understanding the consequences of having a relationship with a sitting judge. I found Janie's explanation a bit insulting.

Speaking of Janie, what the heck happened to Officer Wendy? Not that I have anything against Janie and she and Peter certainly have their history together... but I liked the fun and easy chemistry between Peter and his police officer girlfriend. Did it simply not work out? Will she be back? I need to know more and I wish we'd gotten answers before Peter and Janie started having table top sex.

Damien's case was both funny and touching. That his friend had to prove he was gay was a creative twist. Hanna's Cooper test and Infeld's Dancing With the Stars quiz may have been stereotypical and ridiculous but I couldn't help but laugh.

The accusation that Lance was simply pretending to be gay to win a softball trophy was just... Wow! Could he possibly love competitive soft ball that much? Of course not, but the arguments on both sides did make me wonder about it for a minute.

I was glad we got a break from Pindar's issues this week. I like Pindi but I'd like to see more of Carmen and Hanna in upcoming episodes. They've been under used this season.

Are you happy with Peter and Janie's reunion? I wasn't. If Peter's writing songs about her he obviously has feelings for Janie but I found the recreational sex unsatisfying and it left me missing Wendy. Am I the only one?

It's another out-if-order episode! Just got finished with Riz&Iles doing same thing!
This one was taped weeks before the last few episodes and now has been aired thinking we wouldn't notice the continuity issues We're not that stuoid and it's frustrating.

Loved this episode. I like Peter and Janie a lot. So happy they got together. I know lot of fans who watched season 1 wanted this to happen. Perhaps Wnendy will be back for next season. I don't know if Claire will be back again. Atleast peter and Janie fans got a little tease.
