Franklin & Bash 4×05 ‘Deep Throat’: Power ballad mixtapes

It’s a miracle; this week’s Franklin & Bash wasn’t horrible. It was actually entertaining and kept my attention the whole time. My mind failed to wander as Ellen was back and her relationship status with Franklin was put to the test, the case this week was easy to follow and there was some Bash’s history both on and off the show tossed in the mix.

Since Ellen has slowly become my favorite of this little bunch we’ll talk about her and Franklin first. Stanton says they have to sign some papers to handle the reality of their relationship. The only thing is they have to decide how serious or not serious they are separately. It always sucks when one person is in it way deeper than the other. I feel you Ellen, I feel you. Can we all agree that boys are stupid? Just say how you feel from the start and stop making us gals guess and feel stupid when we put ourselves and emotions on the line.

So Ellen folds on what she thought was a sort of serious thing with Franklin. As he deals with that ending, he and Bash have to handle Bash’s high school crush. Well not her, but her son’s case. I really can’t recall any other case from this season but this one stuck out because it was fun and light – prom queen scandal. Yes, rigging who won prom queen can land you in court. Who knew?

This kind of bothered me though because proms are usually at the end of the year and it seemed like this one was not. Was it a junior prom then because then that’d make sense. While it was the best case of the season, I was like…who cares who wins prom queen? Well, according to the verdict – the girl who wants it most. You knew the principal had something to do with the popular girl taking the crown even though the odds were against her. He was one shifty dude the whole episode.

What was cute about the case as a whole though was how the kid’s lack of skills mirrored Bash’s back in the day. Oh how Bash wanted to score with Molly. The only thing I wish upon all falling stars though for was a flashback to that homecoming dance when Bash well, released a little too much too soon. Let’s hope we get a little more Bash and Molly interactions in the future. We likely won’t though.

OH! So we got a look as Bash’s past with the high school love that never was but can we talk about how Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s real life history came into play? Professor Lasky from Saved by the Bell: The College Years was the other lawyer! Can we get Kelly Kapowski on there please?

After four episodes that are now distant memories, Franklin & Bash was an enjoyable experience that didn’t make me want to browse the interwebs or just take a nap – good job guys, let’s hope this is the turning point and it’s only up from here.
