Check Out a Then We Got Help! Marathon


Weeds and The Big C return to Showtime–where the best cable comedies call home–on June 27. Before you dive into an On-Demad marathon to get ready for their return, might I suggest you brush up on one of the funniest series on the web, Then We Got Help!. Each and every episode of Then We Got Help! gives such TV series a run for their money.

On this week’s “A Kiss is Just a Kiss” Part 2, Marcia DeBonis (The Big C and Letters to Juliet) returns as the hilarious couples counselor in training, Sharon. The group pounces when she accidently reveals information about her personal life. Dan (Nicholas Rodriguez) and Eric (Blake Hammond) are emotional as they reveal to the group what has happened with their adoption. 

Check out a Then We Got Help! marathon of recent episodes after the jump.

Watch Then We Got Help’s “She’ll Lao Tsu You”


There is no better way to decompress at the end of the week than having a good laugh. Thankfully, the folks of Then We Got Help have just the remedy, their latest episode “She’ll Lao Tsu You.” This week the recently introduced bisexual Vance (Eric Anderson) returns, but this time it is his boyfriend Scotty (Shane Jacobsen) he introduces to the incredulous group. 

Everyone reacts differently, but Jenny’s (Jessica Rush) “They’re like Big Love on HBO, but without Amanda Seyfried or religion” and Dan’s (Nicholas Rodriguez) “Eric named Vance Anne Heche…because he keeps switching sides” are two of my favorite lines. 

If Then We Got Helps’ romantic entanglements don’t have you laughing, by the time Terry (Sean Mahon) deadpans “Lao Tsu just bit Annie in the ass” you’ll be spitting out your Polish vodka.

This week Then We Got Help announced some big news. Darren Le Gallo–who has appeared on such series as The Big Bang Theory and Six Feet Under–has joined the Then We Got Help cast as Emily's (Julie Ann Emery) husband for the remainder of the second season. Watch this week’s episode “She’ll Lao Tsu You” after the jump!
