The Boss is another charming and endearing episode of "Samantha Who?"
27 April 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

As if her amnesia and attempts to get reacquainted with her friends and parents weren't enough, Sam's workplace gets a visit from the rarely seen partner of Chapman and Funk: Winston Funk (Timothy Olyphant). Andrea coos like a teenage girl when she sees him as she reveals to Sam her crush on him and not just because of his money. ("I'd love him even if he were a millionaire.") When Sam sees him in his office, Funk reveals an engagement ring for her since he's now divorced from his previous wife. Turns out he and Sam had an affair in her old life. Sam explains her condition to him and leaves before coming back to return the ring. Later, after getting another brush-off from Todd who stopped returning her phone calls, Sam talks to Dena, who is practicing writing for an online class, about her situation. Dena takes all this down as material for her story annoying Sam with her constant accents. At home, Sam gets a surprise as Funk shows up with her parents who are happy for her engagement especially since Dad is promised a ride in the helicopter! Though she still refuses, Sam seems to fall under Winston's charm as he makes snow suddenly appear falling (though he just saw it coming through a street lamp). So a spell seems to cast under the couple...then the parents ruin it with Mom taking a picture. At work the next day, Sam giggles at a joke told by Winston. That alone is enough for Andrea to figure out her relationship with him. She leaves, declaring her and Sam no longer friends. While discussing this latest development with Dena who's still writing her story, a limousine arrives to take Sam away. She refuses at first then accepts knowing Todd still doesn't want her back. In the limo, after Sam asks for a coffee from Winston (the drink, not the franchise), she remembers her old self walking into Chapman's office and telling him not to give Andrea that promotion in New York, just so they can stay together. Sam starts to leave again but Funk tells his driver to take her to wherever she wants which turns out to be a cupcake shop where she and Andrea used to just smell since that was "like eating without the calories". As the best friends reminisce and make up, Todd finds a paper that has the mother's picture of Sam and Winston on the front page. As Sam relaxes at home with a cup watching television, she hears a knock on the door. It's a snow-globe with a note to shake it. As she does, Todd comes in and reveals how jealous he is by kissing her! Sam smiles as he leaves and the scene ends...This was another very funny episode of "Samantha Who?" told with heart and romance galore! Andrea is especially charming with her schoolgirl regression concerning Funk and her later hurt when she finds out about Samantha's inadvertent betrayal. And it's nice to see Dena find a new creative outlet for her spare time. She's quite hilarious with those accents! And Olyphant, who I previously saw as the villain in Live Free and Die Hard, oozes such charm here that it's so easy to see why everyone seems to fall in love with him on first sight. I'm guessing we'll see him in a few more episodes. So with all that, "Samantha Who?" just keeps getting better and better! Chirstina Applegate can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned and it's nice to know ABC will renew this show for another season. Certainly the fact it's after "Dancing with the Stars" has something to do with that!
