FRANKLIN & BASH “The Bangover” Review

FRANKLIN & BASH The Bangover

FRANKLIN & BASH “The Bangover” Episode 8 – After a court light saber fight stunt goes awry, Franklin and Bash are sentenced to 72 hours house arrest. As if that were not bad enough, when Jared steps a little too far away from the house, a drug bust ensues snaring Stanton’s niece in the net. How do you explain to your boss that his niece whom he believes is on a plane back home is actually in your house, under arrest for drug possession, oh and you slept with her? You don’t. You concoct various stunts to get her out of it.

Speaking of arrests, Carmen finds herself arrested again after she just cannot stay away from Dante’s loving. Oh, and Dante leaves behind a bag of cash and then threatens to shoot Franklin and Bash when they do not have it on them. But he has changed, right? That storyline was a bit frustrating as Carmen seems too smart for that and the whole “I just cannot leave because of the chemistry and great sex” argument seems weak. Luckily in the end Dante did the right thing, but if he was truly changed and doing the right thing, he never would have looked her up again.

We find out that Janie still does have feelings for Peter. Why else would she want to send Stanton’s niece back home out of the country immediately and banish her from returning for 10 years? I wonder how James Vanderbeek will feel about this. It looks like we might find out next week.

This episode was not as good as prior ones, I think mainly because Peter and Jared were trapped in the house and out of their element, the courthouse. Although their techniques, including the light saber fight, are beyond ludicrous, it is always fun to watch. Seeing them get repeatedly busted by the police in their own apartment was not as much fun. There were still some good moments, though, including:

A judge played by none other than Tommy Chong who actually says that he has firsthand knowledge about the effects of longterm pot usage. Ha!

Damien saying “What the hell? You live here now too?” to the temp that was hired for Franklin & Bash and was assisting them at their house. Also? I liked her. They should keep her.

Dante telling Peter and Jared that as soon as he saw Carmen, he knew she was the one. Then they pointed out that he stole her money and cash to which he responded, “but I returned her purse!”

Pindar shouting to opposing counsel “I wasn’t objecting during your questioning!”

The confident attorney Pindar was before he found out he did not eat pot muffins. Awesome.

The temp recognizing that Carmen did not have a hangover, but a “bangover.”

What did you think of this week’s episode of Franklin & Bash? Do you like the boys better in or out of the courtroom? Would any judge in their right mind sentence these two to house arrest? After all, they are the creators of Margarita Mondays. Tell me what you thought down below.
