Am I on drugs? Cause I am thinking that I am not on any good ones watching this show. I feel like I am on bad ones and this is supposed to be a good show and I am supposed to love it. But I honestly feel like this show takes what is supposed to be fun and manages to find a way to make is offensive and flat out stereotypical versus embracing what is actually a great idea and had the potential to be the next nanny.
Now it’s just like why did someone greenlight this shit. Is it because it has a talented cast? Maybe. But what it definitely has is a bunch of writers were like obviously plucked from nothing and were like yay we get to exercise our bad writing.
The only redeeming thing about Country Comfort is that it has a talented cast. Cause it’s written and shot like a bad 90’s show. Only worse. I can’t get over how someone let this shit happen with every bad stereotype of people who love
In this episode the only thing that saved it was the cute little kid, Piper Braun. She plays Chloe – who is absolutely adorable. She made the episode tolerable, while you hoped that there was a time machine that could make the 26 minutes of your life pass by quickly.
Lets get down to business.
Bailey is setting in to be a nanny, even though she doesn’t have a clue as to what she is doing. Beau makes his way down the stairs and sees the spread that she’s laid out and is impressed. She’s made all the kids favorites and a rice cake with soy cheese for him. Apparently Summer has him eating a gluten, dairy and all joy in food free diet. He’s wanting to prove that he is a man and can have a waffle, but as suspected the moment he takes a bite, the wanna be Parent Trap bride shows up.
The kids make their way downstairs and are excited over the food. Summer’s not liking the fact that they are taking to Bailey, and that the boys want to impress her. But then again, I don’t think Summer likes anything in life that doesn’t revolve around her.
Chloe comes downstairs and is dressed like Bailey. She loves Bailey, and well, again, as suspected, Summer doesn’t like it. Summer tells her she should put on the flower dress she bought her. She says she can’t wear it cause she don’t like it and I have found the first person I like in this show. A smart ass little girl who tells it like it is. She maybe the only thing that isn’t WTF about this show.
Then we have Cassidy, who I don’t want to say anything mean about cause she’s going through grief, but the writers have made this little girl the most unlikeable kid. She’s selfish, rude, irrational, and like just has no thoughts about other people and how they would feel over anything. For instance her and her best friend are wearing the same thing and she tells her to change cause she doesn’t like it on her. Umm… you change Cassidy. And while you are changing your shirt, change your attitude.
Bailey gives her the jacket that Boone gave her to wear. Cassidy takes this an an opportunity to remind her of whining in the barn during the tornado. I am telling you, Cassidy really is just too much.
Dylan comes down, already has a managers contract for Bailey, as he’s been making calls on her behalf. The kids got drive, which is admirable. And later that day, when she comes home with Chloe he calls and tells her that she needs to get to the bar, as the CMA fest is having auditions and he’s gotten her a spot.
He can’t make it to her audition, but tells her to go. She’s debating because she has Chloe and a kid in a bar isn’t a good idea. Dylan is like you want your dream or not? Valid question. Chloe is willing to go and Dylan is like its 2021, women can have it all.
Where is the lie?
Chloe says she’ll grab a guitar while she changes into something classy. Never leave responsibility to a child. When they get to the bar, Chloe tells Bailey that her Mama’s guitar is gonna bring her such good luck and that’s when all hell starts to break loose. Here’s the thing about Bailey, she’s a good person and truly cares about these kids, but she’s irresponsible. Bailey wants to get it home quickly so Cassidy doesn’t know that the guitar is gone, but her name is called. Chloe convinces to stay, citing the fact that Cassidy is at school, but we all can see the predictability of something happening to that guitar coming a mile away.
Bailey kills the audition – though I have to admit that I am already tired of hearing about Boone. I know, I know – it has only been a second since she arrived, but like that’s how much I hate hearing about him. She’s acting like she’s weak one moment, complex the next and none of it is believable.
One thing leads to another and they stupidly leave the guitar alone. Shocker (sense the sarcasm) when they come out of the bathroom it’s gone. Bailey knows that she’s gonna be in trouble, but I also think that she really doesn’t want to let Cassidy down.
She calls the boys for help – but one is worried about Bailey’s audition, one is worried about helping Bailey (cause he has a crush), and one is just freaking out. The predictable (as it always does in this show) the boys don’t help, they get caught trying to help, Bailey’s phone dies, and well Beau finds out that something is up when he has to come get the kids from the cops.
Oh not to mention the fact Cassidy finds out about the guitar missing.
No one knows where Bailey and Chloe are cause of the phone dying, and when they finally make it home – of course Summer is there to “hope she doesn’t loose her job” and yada yada. Beau is obviously pissed – which is the only thing believable about this character as a father.
Oh ya, and of course the guitar is gone.
This episode is a lesson about hanging onto the memories and not the physical things. But if you want to make me believe that Cassidy has learned that so quickly – ya, not happening. Can I believe that Bailey is sorry? Sure. She has a good heart. But the thing is – this is not TGIF, these characters are all stereotypes, and this is not the 1990’s.
The show isn’t fun. It’s quite predictable and well… something better could have been made of the idea.
Bailey does get fired for disappearing with Chloe and so that’s another example of Beau actually being a Dad. But that’s about it.
Oh, and Summer is still the spawn on peroxide and Satan so there is that.
