Review - Free Agents Season 1 Episode 3 Dr. Hu

A quick look at Free Agent's ratings shows an ugly picture. It premiered with a mediocre 2.1 adults 18-49 and dropped steeply the next week to 1.3. It's doubtful the show will get a second season or even a full season pick-up, but I'm hanging in. I like what's there are where the show can go.

"Dr. Hu" divided me more than the previous two episodes, presenting two plots with contrasting qualities. On the one hand, we finally get to see the broad picture of Alex's work, something missing from the first two episodes, and we get to see Emma grow beyond the secretary role. On the other hand, Helen is useless in the episode, continuously ranting to Alex's therapist about how she doesn't need therapy. It was good for a while, but it got old, and it's never good when a smart character acts crazy for an entire episode.

Score: 8.3/10
