A Little Romance (#1.13)
9 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose is dating a guy whom she keeps on hiding from her friends, when they invite him over they see a reason for it, it is because he is very short. While they are friendly to him Blanche still makes a lot of awkward remarks. And Rose wonders if she wants to continue the relationship. She thinks about it and decides to go on with it, but he ends up breaking up with her because she isn't Jewish.

I liked the episode! It is already nice how they address the topic and even make analogies to other times when it was hard to date people of other races because of people's prejudices (even though this was not the case in Blanche's story!).

And they do it with a lot of humor, which was pretty awesome. Loved the face Rose makes to Blanche when they invite her boyfriend over, the usage of shrimp and short ribs and Sophie worrying she may have a stroke or telling Rose to let the guy out of the pillow case.
