  • Better than the Pilot, the second episode of The New Adventures of Old Christine explores Christine's needs and desires.

    The second episode of \"The New Adventures of Old Christine\", was even better than the previous week\'s Pilot episode.

    I would have definitely liked Christine\'s unique \'to-do\' list brought through to this episode, as it was one of the highlights of the previous episode.

    In this episode, titled \"Supertramp\", Christine realises that she hasn\'t had sex in three years, while her ex-husband, Richard Campbell, mentioned that he had been. So Christine decides she needs to have a one-night stand, but she has no idea where to start. Her brother Matthew, who knows much more on the topic than herself, helps her. They go to the grocery store, where Christine tries to attract men. Unfortunately, she is pretty clueless on the whole topic, which makes for the most hilarious scene in the whole episode, because her way of attracting men is plain bizarre, with her extreme smiling, and peculiar shoulder-shaking, leaving me in fits of laughter.

    Eventually, Christine gets her hands on man she can have a one-night stand with. Little does she know, though, that he is one of the creepy parents of the kids at Christine\'s son\'s school, which the parents have dubbed \"Sad Dad\".

    When Christine tries to break up with him, however, he gives her a mix tape of her favourite band, Supertramp, forcing her into bed with him again.
