Raising Hope 1.13 "A Germ Of a Story" Review

Let's face it; we are all a bit dirty in our day to day life. We forget to throw things away, we walk through dirt, and we hardly ever wash our hands before eating. The Chance family on the other hand made it their mission to keep their home clean to protect Hope. With cleaning everything top to bottom, the Chance's expected to rid their home of all germs once and for all. Only problem is that Maw Maw seems to be the so called distributor of germs and that leads to some serious comedy this week on Raising Hope.

This week the main story was split into what I like to call an onion story. That is, as you peel back another part of the story, you get a rather smaller part of the story. This week started out with Jimmy wanting to be a good father by taping everything that Hope does while she is a baby. Most families do this and get great memories and moments captured on film but, in the Chance house a video camera only captures wild stunts. I thought it was interesting that the writers made it so all the memories of Hope were not filmed due to the childlike actions of Burt and Virginia. While this show is based around baby Hope, we got more Burt action this week than we ever have. Kudos to Garret Dillahunt for his great portrayal of Burt as it seems every week he pulls out the best comedic scene. Read More...
