“Undateable” Season 1 Episode 5 “My Hero Is Me” and Episode 6 “Leader of the Pack” aired on Thursday, June 12, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on NBC. Read on to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) “Undateable” recaps about the latest back-to-back episodes.
“Undateable” Episode 5 “My Hero is Me” was directed by Phill Lewis and written by Adam Sztykiel.
Both Danny (Chris d’ Ella) and Justin (Brent Morin) had finally found their partners. Unfortunately, the hardships had already begun. Danny previously met his match with Sabrina (Eva Amurri Martino) who used his own lady-killer tactics on him. He got a chance to date her after she was introduced by Leslie, Danny’s older sister and Sabrina’s college friend. She didn’t want to give him a second date while she was staying to finish her PhD.
Justin felt that Nicki was “the one.” She and Danny were actually in the middle of a serious conversation. A shocked Nicki learned that Justin loves her, and she just replied with a “cool.” Justin was determined that she may come around and confess her own feelings. He also said that he wanted to move in together with Nicki, which she had heard again. This time, Justin was truly hurt, and the gang wanted to help him. They literally carried him to talk to Nicki. They learned that she loved him too but had to leave to take care of her sick mom.
The episode ended with another funny moment while the whole gang bonded. Burski (Rick Glassman) had set his eyes and hands on Leslie (Bianca Kajlich). The gang also made a drinking game on Burki’s “accidental” moves on Leslie. They even learned several facts about him that should have stayed hidden.
“Undateable” Season 1 Episode 6 “Leader of the Pack” was directed by Ted Wass and written by John Quaintance.
The episode began with Danny teaching some tricks over the sink. After Nicki left, Justin tried his hardest to spice up their long-distance relationship. Leslie and Sabrina were sent by Danny to guide him in staging a successful phone sex with his girlfriend. Unfortunately, they failed to help him. Justin also gave Leslie a lewd comment.
On the other hand, Danny also began to play cupid by helping Justin’s openly gay friend to score some guys. He informed Brett (David Fynn) to make his move on the bar’s current electrician named Steve. Upon learning this, Justin tried to tap Danny’s advice, but Brett repeatedly chose Danny over him. Things were already going great until a flattered Steve refused his offer.
Danny confronted Justin that he smiled after Brett failed on having a date with Steve. Brett heard his confession and got angry with his friend and boss. Justin immediately apologized to him about being happy with Danny’s wrong advice. He also told them that he felt useless when Danny arrived to help them. The entire gang told him that he’s already doing great. Danny also told him that they could be both leaders of the “Undateable” posse, just like Buzz Lightyear and Woody did in “Toy Story.”
