Combined Review of Mommie Track, Bringing up Babies, Maternity Leave
23 March 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Jerome Sokoloff, a recurrent character in Web Therapy, is going through a turbulent relationship with his wife Hayley, partly because Fiona Wallace, the web therapist and his employee is deprecating her during the sessions with him. In spite of the entire hullabaloo, they give their marriage a last chance and renew their vows, and also get a surrogate mother for their offspring. Their triplets are in the tummy of a hopeless airhead Tammy Hines (played goofily by Selma Blair) who thinks at first that Fiona lives in a computer. The problem arises when Jerome's requests for a raise and personal loans increase and Fiona thinks he is living beyond his means; Tammy Hines has a devious secret of her own.

Watchers of Glee will find similarity between Tammy's secret and Terri Schuester's; Selma plays her character with ease and has all the features of a duh girl. In Mommie Track, I did feel they should've placed her character at some distance behind Jerome's since her role just required some awkward movements; keeping her in the same plane as Jerome's was distracting. As such her role does protract in the next two episodes, and in the third, she has a one-on-one chat with Fiona, who had warned Jerome not to keep her in the office. Lisa Kudrow is equally funny when she gives that look of contempt whenever Tammy speaks. We also find that Dan Bucatinsky is quite a great addition to Web Therapy; so I have very less to complain about regarding the performances.

The writing and the improvisation in the first and third episode were good; however the second episode was somewhat sketchy and didn't have much to add to the total. Nothing else to say, I guess.

Mommie Track: 6.1 out of 10 Bringing Up Babies: 5.7 out of 10 Maternity Leave: 6.6 out of 10 Average Rating: 6.1 out of 10
