Adultescence (#1.5), 11 July 2012

*** This review may contain spoilers ***
And the show goes on as well as it started. I really liked this episode
mainly because of Erica and Judith's conflict. Both actresses did a
great job. We see how genuinely upset Erica is over not being her best
friend's godmother, and at the same time we see how bad Judith feels
because she is her best friend and doesn't want to hurt her.
The bar mitzvah is also a great story. I am glad they used another actress to play the young Erica and she did a fine job playing the adult in her body. Uncle Ruby as Patrick Swayze impersonator also was a great addition to the episode, just hilarious.
At the end the lesson Erica learns is great and her making peace with Judith is another beautiful scene.

Being Erica at its finest: the ultimate bat mitzvah, 22 July 2009
Author: Vince Bacani (vince-bacani) from Canada
Adultescence is the perfect little episode for any child of the 1980s.
Who can't relate to the pressure of trying to put on the perfect
occasion, like a baby shower or a bat mitzvah? Add to it the kitsch
factor of a Dirty Dancing theme, complete with Uncle Ruby as a Patrick
Swayze wannabe, and you have comic gold. If you can watch this episode
and not root for our heroine, you must be made of cardboard.
Erin Karpluk is her usual lovable, natural, and irresistible self. She IS Erica. You cannot watch her and not fall in love. But in this episode, Samantha Weinstein (playing Erica at 13) steals the show. The combination of thirtysomething savvy and teenage innocence is flawless. The joy that young Erica beams when hoisted into the air in the near-iconic pose from Dirty Dancing is infectious. Who wouldn't jump at the chance to go back in time and enjoy all those moments we wasted worrying what other people thought? This is a classic episode.
