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.
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.
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.
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.
