Episode 6: The Renaissance of Remington
This episode’s subject, Remy, named Don Draper as one of his idols. Come through, vintage misogyny! Also… can we be done with Mad Men already? That shit ended three years ago. Jon Hamm is onto bigger and better things. Like voicing a purple fish version of Don Draper on Spongebob Squarepants named Don Grouper.
Also, no one appreciated the decadence of the 1970’s fantasy pad Remy had inherited from his grandmother. Green shag carpeting with canary yellow furniture?? Yes please.
Bobby had to go and ruin all that with some Cuban bullshit. I don’t even know.
Jonathan gave Remy a haircut and was reaaaaaally pushing a Water Pick on him. Just never floss like the rest of us?
I did like Tan’s Cuban-esque wardrobe for Remy. He also found one of Remy’s grandfather’s hats, which I gotta say, looked really good on him. Maybe the Don Draper thing isn’t so bad after all.
Karamo took Remy out for a whiskey tasting. Not sure what the relevance here is. They both ended up looking douchey.
Antoni… he really discovered the star of the episode: Remy’s mom, Esther. Antoni came through to her place, she baked him a sweet potato pie (which would be a great pet name for him), and she read her son for absolute filth. Yas.
The conclusion was a dinner party for Remy’s friends and family. Yawn. At least Esther was there to drag him some more.
