Undateable season 1, episode 5: My Hero Is Me airs tonight on NBC.
Justin expresses his feelings for Nicki but doesn’t get the reaction he expected. Danny tries to help but realizes his advice is wrong. Meanwhile, things get awkward between Burski and Leslie.
Whether it’s due to a lack of style, the wrong job or even just a bad haircut, everyone goes through a time in their lives when they’re undateable. Most of us eventually grow out of it, but some people need a little more help than others. Enter Danny Burton (Chris D’Elia, Whitney). Confident, attractive and impervious to outside opinions, 29-year-old Danny – who may be in a state of arrested development himself – decides to help out his new roommate, Justin Kearney (comedian Brent Morin), the owner of an unsuccessful bar and a chronic overthinker, and Justin’s group of oddball friends – Shelly (comedian Ron Funches), Burski (comedian Rick Glassman) and Brett (David Fynn, Game of Thrones). Danny introduces the gang to his recently divorced older sister, Leslie (Bianca Kajlich, Rules of Engagement), who immediately bonds with this group of guys, as she feels a little stuck in her own life as well. The gang spends most of their time at Justin’s bar, helping solve each other’s respective problems over beers. And while they love to give each other a hard time, they always have each other’s backs.
Undateable season 1, episode 5 airs June 12 at 9 p.m. EDT on NBC.
