After finding out that Dean Sr. is guilty, Dean and Stewart try to come up with some way to help him win his case.
For the most part, The Grinder tries to mock stereotypes and clichés, so it’s a bit of a shock to see the show wholeheartedly commit to one.
Most episodes of The Grinder have a deep opinion about something at play. This episode is no different and the satire is directed towards focus groups.
This week’s episode of The Grinder takes a step back in a few ways. For some reason, with stakes raised for Dean Sr.’s court case, this episode decided to focus on the origins of Mitch Grinder.
This week’s episode of The Grinder focuses on an identity crisis. Most of the recent episodes have really made an effort to focus the show on Stewart. His feelings, methods and ideas became the audience’s own.
The Grinder is dead, long live The Grinder! In one of the more interesting episodes of the show, The Grinder has managed to both give a unique insight into their characters and plot. The conceit behind the episode is simple: Dean becomes more like Stewart/Stewart becomes more like Dean.
Last week THE GRINDER left us in a weird place. Dean Sr. is getting served and it could possibly mean the end of the law firm. But for me, much weirder than that was Maya Rudolph’s character: Jillian.
The Grinder loves to go meta and the excels at it in this week’s episode. Doubly well is that the focus here is not only on Dean and Stewart, but Deborah too. Now one of the low-key, funniest characters is starting to get her just due and it feels good.
It had to come at some point. As the saying goes, “All good streaks must come to an end.” OK, that might not technically be the way the saying goes, but the sentiment stands: The Grinder had a mediocre-to-bad episode.
In a follow up to last week’s cliffhanger, The Grinder delivers its funniest and best episode yet. I would say, if you haven’t seen the show, or want to recommend an episode to someone, this is a great place to start. It works within the framework of the cliffhanger but it also works as an entry point.
It’s important to suspend disbelief. It’s also important to believe characters. This latest episode of The Grinder manages to mess with both of these principles and still come out with a very good episode.
After a lengthy break, it’s good to see The Grinder back again. One of the best new shows of the season, we were left with quite a treat of an episode that could have doubled as a series finale. Instead we jump back right where it left off.
The Grinder continues to be one of the more consistent new shows of the season. This episode served as the conclusion to a rather wonderful two-episode arc featuring guest actors like Jason Alexander as Cliff Beemus and Timothy Olyphant as Ritch Grinder.
Today’s episode of The Grinder was one of the best the series has yet to offer. It featured more hard jokes, weird/interesting plots and a break from form that was totally unexpected.
This week focuses on celebrity treatment – what that means to both the individual and their peers. Too often we see TV make fun of the pompous has-been actor, but it’s been a breath of fresh air to follow the journey of an actor who just wants to be a normal person.
This episode got to the core of a lot of characters and managed to make them grow and change. It’s fun to see this happen on a show that often pulls everyone back, and it’s an interesting change of pace that I hope they go to a few more times this season
This week’s episode of The Grinder deals with celebrity, fame and relationships. Like most episodes of The Grinder, it was an enjoyable watch. The show manages to always come across as goofy and even if the subject matter gets a bit serious, the tone is so far in the other direction.
More than anything, The Grinder is a show that identifies TV tropes and explains why they exist or proceed to demonstrate how they’re stupid. Some TV tropes exist for a very necessary reason and this show does quite an amazing job of proving why.
For the third straight week, The Grinder delivers. It’s a funny show that doesn’t get too ahead of itself and never needs to dumb down anything.
The second episode of The Grinder was almost as solid as the surprisingly amazing pilot. I think The Grinder is underestimating how likable their characters are, and how on board I am for the journey.
