On tonight’s Whitney season 2, episode 14, “Crazy, Stupid, Words,” what starts as a little friendly competition at Low Bar ends on a sour note when Whitney goes one step too far by showing her backside to the group. Alex is angry at Whitney’s actions, but in order to show her he’s not uptight, he tries to take a compromising photo of himself but is embarrassingly interrupted by Roxanne and Lily. Meanwhile, Mark discovers R.J. is deathly afraid of spiders.
NBC’s new multi-camera comedy “Whitney” is a hilarious look at modern day love, which centers around Whitney (Whitney Cummings) and Alex (Chris D’Elia), a happily unmarried couple. Together for three years, the duo is in no rush to get hitched, which seems to get a mixed response from their friends. Whitney’s close circle of girlfriends includes, on one side, Lily (Zoe Lister-Jones), a romantic idealist who loves being in love, and on the other, Roxanne (Rhea Seehorn), a recent divorcee who is practical, cynical and dreading being single again. Lily and Roxanne’s opposing points of view only exacerbate Whitney’s own complicated outlook on relationships. Completing their close-knit group is Neal (Maulik Pancholy), a real modern day Renaissance man – sensitive and cool, who knows a little bit about everything and happens to be dating Lily.
On the other end of the spectrum is Whitney and Alex’s next-door neighbor Mark (Dan O’Brien), a police officer and total bachelor, who claims to be the ultimate player, but likes to talk a good game. At the end of the day, Whitney and Alex try to have a relationship on their own terms – in a world that expects a more traditional approach.
Whitney “Crazy, Stupid, Words” season 2 episode 14 airs Wednesday March 20 at 8:00 p.m on NBC. Spoiler images below:
