My recent absolute obsession has been USA’s Playing House, a comedy that recently wrapped its second season. It’s flown a little under that radar due to being on USA, which is just now branching out to comedy, but it is hysterical, warm, and at times, giddily romantic. I’m in it not least for the sizzling, ongoing chemistry between Jessica St. Clair’s Emma and her high-school boyfriend/first love-turned-cop Mark (Keegan-Michael Key from Key and Peele). Emma rejected his proposal, took off out of town, and has come back thirteen years later. Let’s just say the sparks aren’t dead, and since I’m a huge sucker for old friends or people with a history falling back in love, this is right up my alley.
