Grown Up Problems

I finally caught up on the awesome show "Up All Night." I highly recommend you do the same if you haven't already.

The second episode centers around Reagan and Chris (Christina Applegate and Will Arnett) getting new, hip, cool neighbors. All they want is to impress this couple, and they get to work on it right away. Sure, tequila on the doorstep was a risky move, but after some Facebook profile tweaking, they get invited to the couple's first party. Unfortunately, Reagan and Chris have a baby that they would like to put to sleep sometime in the near future, and the noise is not helping. I loved the contrast between Reagan and Chris and the new couple, oh and another couple as well. So funny. Check out the episode here.

You're going to love the third episode. I think it was the best yet. Turns out, Ava (Maya Rudolph) used to date this sleazy R&B singer played by Jorma Taccone from the hilarious Lonely Island trio. Their relationship was ... tumultuous. So, when Ava finds out he's getting married, she freaks out at Reagan, who happened to facilitate their break up. Meanwhile, Reagan and Chris are struggling to find balance between being comfortable and just looking like a mess. Chris decides to start dressing nicer at home to prompt Reagan to do the same. She's not feeling it, since she has to be in girdles and spanx all day at work. The last thing she wants to do when she gets home is dress up. There's a wickedly witty breakfast scene where Reagan makes her point that you just have to see. Awesome. To help Ava out of her funk, Reagan arranges a meeting between her and her ex, B-Ro (but first we get to see the magical music video they made together - OMG). Check out the episode immediately.

Oh and follow Ava (the character) on twitter, and check out her website. Oprah, who? This lady is my hero!
