TERRIERS “Asunder” Advance Review

Terriers (FX)

TERRIERS “Asunder” Season 1 Episode 10 – I’m always sorry when the final credits roll on my favorite tv shows and that’s exactly how I felt when I got the to end of this episode. The folks over at FX gave us here at Daemon’s TV an advanced DVD and I’m so glad it’s got all of the remaining episodes on it because now I don’t have to wait to see what happens next.

But for now I’ll just talk about this episode. It’s not revealing anything to say that Gretchen and Jason get married in it but that’s far from all that happens. As we saw in the last episode, Hank is uninvited while Britt and Katie are still on the guest list. Gretchen’s marriage is hitting Hank hard, but luckily he’s got lots to distract him when a case from the past pops up to keep him plenty busy.

I’m sorry to say that once again Hank and Britt do spend a lot of time apart, but there are still tons of those awesome Brank moments we’ve all come to love (what? I can’t make up a nickname for their bromance?). There are also lots of laughs too, and I guffawed out loud at least twice.

I really wish I could talk about the most powerful scene for me, but I can’t without giving away what I think is a spoiler. Let’s just say it’s not something I think anyone will be surprised to see, we all knew it was gonna happen, it was just a matter of when. And while I knew it would be rough, it was easily twice as heartbreaking as I thought it would be.

Also, and I know this doesn’t have anything to do with the show, but can I just tell you how much I giggled at the DVD menu screen on my advance copy? It just shows a little terrier dog happily shaking the hell out of a stuffed toy and it cracked me up so much. If they end up using it for the DVD when it’s released, you’ll see what I mean. I found it very fitting for the show.

A few of my favorite (non spoilery) bits.

Britt sings one of my favorite nursery school songs.

At one point I found myself yelling “Hank don’t you dare!” at my tv.

Hank calls on some old friends to help him out, sometimes with some hilarious results.

Overall I don’t think they could make a bad episode of Terriers if they tried so what can I say except that this was another great one and I’m excited to see where the season is going to end. Only three more episodes to go now.
