FRANKLIN & BASH “Go Tell It on the Mountain” Episode 10 (Season Finale) -Is it just me or did 10 episodes of this show just freaking fly by? Granted summer’s not my favorite time of year and I’m already excited for fall, but still, I’m getting a little sad that I’m going have to start saying goodbye to my summer shows.
This is the first summer finale for me and I’m happy to say that it didn’t go out with a whimper. In fact, the boys end up on their toughest case yet, defending their own boss on murder charges. Not only that but they’ve also got a sneaky second-in-command imposter pretending to be helping them but actually trying to tear the case apart so that she can get herself into that corner office. Needless to say her plan doesn’t work. Not only do Franklin and Bash do a bang-up job in court, but behind the scenes Carmen and Karp figure out Brett’s little scheme and send her packing.
And so ends the first season of Franklin and Bash. I know I’m not the only one who’s going to be eagerly waiting to see what adventures the boys are going to get into next year.
My favorite bits..
Jared totally getting caught staring at Ultimo’s daughter. Oopsie.
“Perhaps another athlete will text photos of his genitals and wipe this mess off the front page.”
OMG it’s Doctor Crusher!
Whoa. Just like that and Infeld is in cuffs? Dr. Crusher doesn’t mess around.
“Isn’t there something about lawyers and their clients?”
“Which is why I’m not asking out your father. Otherwise I would, he’s right in my wheelhouse.”
The boys immediately assuming that they were in the middle of a Murder Mystery thing when they found out Infeld had been arrested for murder.
Karp agrees with Franklin & Bash? Uh oh, methinks the Apocalypse is coming.
Jared was pre-med? Did I miss that before? I always assumed he was into law from day one.
Peter squealing like a little girl and shoving Peter toward Hawk’s body because he thought he saw it move. LOL.
Jared assuring Peter that “Encino Man” couldn’t really happen. Nice. Haven’t seen an “Encino Man” reference in …well, ever.
Pindar trying to defend his Hannah Montana Halloween costume by pointing out that he had actually been dressed as Miley Cyrus. Yeah, cuz *that’s* better.
A half-naked woman asking Peter for help. I bet that’s not the first time that’s happened to him.
Peter actually defending Karp as a lawyer. Huh. I’m kinda liking this new team that’s developing here.
Infeld admitting to Karp that he had been wishing the day would come that he would be judged for what he did.
Jared’s opening argument.
OMG it’s Mike Franks..with a really bizarre mustache. Seriously, what is up with that thing?
“I used to live pretty hard. I AM from Liverpool.”
“Who fights over oatmeal?”
Pindar pointing out to Jared that even Frodo took breaks when retuning the Ring.
The wrestling moves turning into making out. Nice.
The look the judge gave his bailiff when he claimed that he would take the wrestler out of the courtroom. Ha! I kinda wanted to see that.
Peter and Jared telling Brett that they were done taking orders from her. Yeah!
Aw, c’mon Karp. Why no Trial Team group hug?
Infeld running a Tai chi class in prison. Why does that not surprise me in the least?
Karp and Carmen basically telling Brett to clear her ass out of LA.
Jury fieldtrip to the morgue. Woohoo!
“You sure you got signed permission slips from your moms?”
“Actually we got one from yours.”
“Last night.” – Haha! Burn!
“You want to sit together on the bus?”
“No, I want to stab myself with your tiny body.” – After I laughed my ass off at that, my dirty little mind came up with a whole different (and incredibly naughty) way to take that. Bad Moki!
Jared referring to Peter as his “woozy partner.”
Infeld knocking the head off the corpse followed immediately by Peter going down like a pile of breaks in the background. I kid you not, I must’ve rewound and watched that bit easily 3-4 times (okay so maybe it was more like 9 or 10 times, but whose counting?), laughing harder and harder each and every single time.
OMG it’s Machete! Jared better watch himself now.
Finding out that Jared put a fake head in Peter’s bed. Haw.
Peter telling Jared that it would be his honor to kill him.
Ending the episode and the show (for the summer) with a party. It almost made up for the fact that I won’t get to see them again until next summer…….almost.
