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.
If you haven’t watched the last two episodes of the laugh out loud web series Then We Got Help, you’re going to want to tune in to episodes and “I Never” and “There Once Was A Man Named Jan.” Dan (Nicholas Rodriguez) and Eric (Blake Hammond) host the therapy session in “I Never.” Two words sum up why you should watch episode seven, “drinking game.”
In Then We Got Help’s eighth episode of the season, “There Once Was A Man Named Jan,” Sam McMurray guests as Gerry’s (Susan Ferrara) offensive dad, Jan. Gerry is in charge of the meeting in episode eight and she asks her dad, a former detective with “the highest confession rate in NYPD history,” to interrogate the group. For those who haven’t watched the hilarious comedy, it would be an understatement to say Gerry’s husband Terry (Sean Mahon) isn’t a fan of his father-in-law.
This week’s episode drives that point home when an upset Terry almost comes to blows with his father-in-law. When Jan sets his sights on Eric, Eric admits he’s worried Dan will love the baby they are trying to adopt more than he will his partner.

You just know Then We Got Help’s group therapy session is headed off the rails when Kenny (Kevin Earley) gets it in his head that he wants to use “puffy bat squeaky toys” during their next session. As “If I Had a Hammer” heads down Then We Got Help's latest path of hilarity, the group members begin hitting each other with the toys, taking out their relationship frustrations on each other.
I’m always fascinated how characters you enjoy, but may not be a favorite one season, can grow on you the next season. Quinn (Dianna Agron) wasn’t my favorite during Glee’s first season, but this season I’ve been digging the character. The same is happening for me with Gerry (Susan Ferrara) on Then We Got Help. Her deadpan expressions, cutaway commentary, no nonsense quips and mother lion defense of her children, have punctuated the comedy for me this season.
Oh, and in the “you learn something new every day” portion of the episode, did you know using too much hand lotion can make it difficult to get your fingerprints taken? I didn't. Apparently, Dan (Nicholas Rodriguez) uses so much of the stuff, to keep his hands soft, the adoption agency had to use a special machine to register his prints. Watch this week’s Then I Got Help after the jump.
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! READ MORE
Want to take a break from all the daytime doom and gloom? I can think of any better way than spending a few minutes watching new episodes of the laugh-out-loud funny Then We Got Help. The webseries—which is back for its second season—kicks off with “Haven’t We Been Here Before?”, revealing what our favorite characters have been up to since we last saw them.
Then it is back into the wonderful group therapy dynamic that made the first season so much fun. Each episode is a comedic gem, with episode four “Exercise Your Demons” being especially funny. If you missed a moment of Then We Got Help season one–Starring Julie Ann Emery, former One Life to Live star Nicholas Rodriguez, Blake Hammond, Sean Mahon, Susan Ferrara, Alan Campbell, Kristen Shaw, Kevin Earley and Jessica Rush–be sure to visit ThenWeGotHelp.com.
