Honey, I just started watching this show about six months ago. Love it! Looking forward to the new season.March 22, 2015 at 2:39 pm #343667
I thought “Scandalous” was a solid season premiere! Hot In Cleveland has never been very good at wrapping up their cliffhangers in plausible terms, but this was a very funny episode and a great spoof on Scandal. I think one of the smartest move they ever made was brining Dave Foley as a recurring character and finding ways to make him stick around; he works so well with this ensemble!

I’m so glad you’ve picked up the show, Gucci! There’s nothing groundbreaking here, but it’s a tremendous quartet of female sitcom actresses (and tons of fun guest stars and cameos) who work so well together it’s hard not to love the show. I’m honestly devastated it’s ending…

“Family Affair” was great! Funny and well-executed concept, especially finding out that Joy and Elka are distantly related. Sure, it’s ridiculously far-fetched, but Hot In Cleveland has never aimed for realism.

These last few episodes have been really good. Billy Baldwin is another great addition to the series’ guest-star roster, and Dave Foley continues to be hilarious! I particularly liked tonight’s episode “Duct Soup” because they totally embraced and nailed all of the great elements of farce. This show really excels when it acknowledges and plays up its absurdity, because they’ve never really been grounded in much reality (except for perhaps the series premiere). I’m really quite sad we’re down to its final weeks…

«Kitchen Nightmare» was another stellar episode. I can’t believe this show is in its 6th season and pulling off such hillariously funny stories – 24 times a year! The cast was on fire again and I’d wish more people would acknowledge the perfect comedic timing of all the four leads – Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, Valerie Bertinelli and Betty White – not to forget the always funny guest stunts. This week for example by Parks and Rec’s Jim O’Heir and Marla Sokoloff. Tune in for the last five episodes of the show people!May 3, 2015 at 12:25 pm #343679
I agree, “KItchen Nightmare” was another hysterical episode. Absolutely zany, over-the-top, and unbelievable, but laugh out loud funny! The plot of the Victoria, Joy, and Melanie buying Stormi’s was really nice and even sentimental, and the opening night antics that ensued were very reminiscent of an early Frasier episode “The Innkeepers”. I also particularly like that the writers seem to have an end-game in mind for Joy, with her recently getting engaged to Bob and now them wanting to adopt a baby. I hope we see more attempts at closure for the other three characters prior to the series finale.
