In which the most dramatically laughable thing anyone wears the entire hour is this green screen.

    I’ve never watched this show, but I love these recaps! The real show couldn’t possibly be as good, not even close.

    I’ve been enjoying the show, but maybe that’s because all I get is over the air tv, so my standards are lower. In the pilot I thought the terrible green-screening gave it a film noir-y feel so you can see my perspective is skewed. And these fugcaps were definitely a catalyst to my current addiction to the show.

    Ahh, Heather, now that I’ve stopped laughing and am sufficiently composed to actually be able to sit here and, well, compose this . . . Re photo #2: wasn’t it remarkably convenient/paranoid of Rich Twin to have RECORDED HER HUSBAND’S THREAT TO KILL HER SO THAT SHE COULD THEN PLAY IT FOR HSS MONTHS AFTERWARD?! Does this mean she wore a wire in anticipation of confronting her husband about his financial crimes? Or that she tucked a mini voice-activated tape recorder up one of those voluminous sleeves? Or was she just one helluva good Girl Scout, firmly believes in their “Be prepared” motto, and is armed with various recording devices–photo and audio–at all times?

      Yeah, I think she wore a wire on purpose, planning ahead. Clever lady.

    I have forgotten if everybody in this show knows that Rich Twin does in fact have a twin. ‘Cause if you DON’T know, and the person you think is Rich Twin is acting weird, you’d just think that Rich Twin is acting weird. But if you DO know, would it not at some point cross your mind that maybe this person is acting weird because she isn’t Rich Twin at all? You would at least have to consider the possibility, right?

    SMG is looking so pregnant in all of these scenes. That outfit with the white bell-sleeve blouse and dark slacks looked really strange, pulled out over a pregnant belly. And that blouse she is wearing when she has a heart-to-heart with Cruel Intentions is so overly weird, it had to be by design to cover her up. The strange fashion choices on this show are only magnified by their attempts to cover the pregnancy with clothes. They need to start using shopping bags, big desks, etc., etc..

      If SMG isn’t really pregnant, then the wardrobe people on this show are terrible. They are making a slim, petite woman look 6 months pregnant with all those loose blouses and baggy coats! Maybe Bridget is supposed to be pregnant now, too.

    I completely admire the Fug Gals to take the time to give us these utterly clever recaps while simultaneously wrangling Fug Madness AND and the wee Beans. Saaaaa-LUTE!

    (Oh crap. A Hee-Haw reference)

    I’m glad you finally mentioned his ties, because seriously they are usually as big as his face.

    Also, next time she appears can we talk about the receptionist at Martin Charles who is somehow the stupidest person in this show. She gives out confidential info over the phone to the bosses wife for no reason, let Malcom into her other bosses office because he flirted with her…ect

    ps I think the dude that attacked her in the abandoned place was just a junkie trying to mug her. And it was just another junkie dumpster diver who had the phone, no real evil plot there just sort of a waste of time

    Okay, so now I’m hoping Ioan ffurded that bullet on purpose after gruffing the shooter to be there, so that he could dduffurg ‘Rich Twin’ into believing his lack of pocket square to be sincere so that he could ffurg further NEFARIOUS GRUFFUDDS.

    But… but…. if Rich Twin has a recording of herself accusing Gruffudd of the ponzi scheme thing from months ago…

    …. what’s with the big dramatic reveal last week where Poor Twin confronts him about the ponzi scheme and he admits it?

    Wouldn’t he find that kind of odd since that conversation already happened?

    Seriously?! No mention of Poor Twin being strangled by her skeleton arm bib?

    …Henry, his sad sack, and their happily ever after — no mention of his other twins, obviously, because she knows they can just shove them in storage.

    Does anyone else find it strange that Henry Sad Sack is so blasé about all this? His wife was just murdered – a momentary reaction then back to normal. He’s hauled in for questioning by the police – a momentary reaction then back to normal. Siobhan shows up, tells him she wants to kill Briidget and destroy Andrew – a momentary reaction then back to normal.

    Also, how did he explain to robokids where Gemma is?

      Because Sad Sack is… a robot!

      Henry doesn’t have to worry about those twins he had with Gemma because they’re obviously Special Invisible Twins of Convenience. They don’t exist unless we actually see them on screen. Henry is free to do Siobhan’s dirty work whenever she needs him, and he doesn’t have to pay for a nanny! :)

    I need a Pop Up Video version of all the Fug the Show recaps, OR Mystery Science Theater.

      BINGO! Heather and Jessica are the Joel and Mike of the 21st Century. I guess that makes us the ‘bots. See you all next Sunday, A.D.

    Let’s face it, who cares about Henry aka Sad Sack and his twins? There are a helluva lot of twins in this show now. The best pair evah are the fug girls though! (See what I did there?!) Thanks for top recap!

    I’m hoping that when HSS’s twins finally surface, they will have aged 10 years and they get a storyline fighting over Juliet. They need some SORAS up in this joint!
