Amnesia--TV's favorite neurological disorder. What's interesting about this version is that Gomez's tastes change entirely. He's now more like an ordinary person: he's taken aback by the house, the family members, the way Morticia dresses, the food they eat, everything. Since amnesia is about forgetting... does that mean that his ordinary, weird perspective was learned, and the new "ordinary" outlook is the real Gomez? Gomez gets knocked in the head repeatedly afterward so the whole episode is a showcase of how his ordinary personality differs from the other. The rest of the family, for their part, likes him the old way and do what they can restore him. Madness tends to run in families, after all.
Good but ironic
I like this show -- it's entertaining, interesting, sometimes funny. The premise relates to this hip urban girl who comes to an upper-class suburban area and thinks she's too cool for it all and notices all its flaws. To be sure, she certainly has a point about them being over-privileged and out of touch with the surrounding world's harsher realities, to mention a couple.
Here's what took me longer to notice: the girl herself isn't much better than they are. She's a little smarter, a little more insightful, but she has a lot of the same flaws they do. She acts like the smallest inconveniences are the weight of the world on her -- e.g., a girl pays her a hundred bucks to drive her around the block a few times and she she moans, "I hate my job". She's sort of disrespectful to her father, who she calls George,and lives a lifestyle only slightly less entitled than those around her. In short, we're supposed to side with her against the rich snobs and not notice that she's a lot like they are. Sure, that community thinks they're better than others, but she thinks she's better than they are, so how's that any better? Despite this, I like the show.
