A to Z Season 1 Episode 3 Review: C is for Curiouser and Curiouser

at .  Updated at . Comments

Now that Andrew and Zelda are in a full-fledged relationship, it's time for them to learn some new information about each other. 

On A to Z Season 1 Episode 3, we saw what these surprises were, after they "go down the rabbit hole" of internet information.

Of course, their secrets weren't nearly as destructive as they could've had.

Again, we saw just how much the internet and social media are going to be used in the series. I don't think I ever expected it to be used this much in each episode. But, it certainly has a presence, and arguably, is its own character with the amount that it is used on the show.

The episode brought up the first similarity I found to Cristin Milioti's former series How I Met Your MotherFor other fans, you may remember a certain episode, How I Met Your Mother Season 7 Episode 6, when Barney and Robin searched the internet for Ted's date. And like Ted, Andrew and Zelda thought they could keep the mystery, but instead looked for the history.

It was definitely a story to tell, seeing that the internet is an important part of the show, and it accomplished what it set out to do. We learned about Andrew and Zelda, and so did they.

The only damning thing I could find about you is that you once ate a cupcake out of the garbage, which, honestly makes me like you more.


This episode really brought out the supporting characters of the series. Stu had to be the highlight. Everything out of his mouth had me laughing. Mostly because it was ridiculous, but also because he had funny retorts to whatever Andrew and Stephie said.

Also in the episode were the repercussions to Stu's 'Scat-Cat' lie to Stephie in A to Z Season 1 Episode 1. She was, rightfully so, furious about the lie and her anger was actually entertaining to watch. However, the back and forth between her and Stu was fun to watch, and I'm hoping all of that bitter anger towards each other will make for some interesting stories in the future.

Stephie: Your data sounds very sexist.
Stu: Do you want to die alone?

When the series began, I had been worried about how much focus was going to be on the Wallflower office. Luckily, in episode 3, I found an interest in the characters and the story was worth watching. 

Lydia searching through the office's computers was fun to watch. One of my favorite scenes from the episode was watching Dinesh and Lora give Andrew the information on Zelda, while simultaneously talking themselves up because Lydia was watching through the computer.

They did it so matter-of-factly that it made the scene all the better, especially knowing that Andrew had no idea what they were doing.

Ben Falcone, yet again, was another highlight of the episode. He has only appeared briefly, but his dry humor has been worth the short scenes. How else do you convince someone that "Big Bird" is a great nickname?

Howard: At least it's not just any bird, it's Big Bird. He pulls some weight on that street and he's rich.
Lydia: Is he?
Howard: Well, it's never said explicitly, but he lives in Manhattan.

Overall, Andrew and Zelda are still the best part of the show.

They remind me a lot of Jim and Pam from The Office. Can you imagine watching a show with just their story? I think this would be it. Maybe less corny, but still, it has the sweet, romantic couple with a story worth watching

Andrew and Zelda, like a lot of new couples, spent much of their time arm in arm. To the point that Zelda's friend, Stephie, compared them to a pair of figure skaters.


Thankfully, this time we don't have to wait 3 years to see them get together.

We'll just have to see what happens after the 8 months, 1 week, 1 day, and 1 hour have come to an end.

Are you ready for more Wallflower stories? Do you think Stu and Stephie will keep up their hate/hate relationship? Are Andrew and Zelda one of the cutest couples on TV, or is that just me?

If you want to see how Andrew and Zelda's relationship began, make sure you check out the series from the beginning when you watch A to Z online via TV Fanatic.

A to Z Season 1 Episode 3 Quotes

Zelda: You went to a Raiders game, with a case of Zima in the trunk of your white Jetta?
Andrew: I'm a little unclear of what your issue is right now.

Do you think that couple has always not talked? Or have they just been together long enough they've run out of things to say to each other? Which makes less sense to me because I'm sure that if we're together in 30 years, I'll still be gabbing on, as evidenced by this rambling monologue, which I will now wrap up.
