In case you’ve been living under a rock or aren’t a fan of laughing, USA premiered a new half-hour comedy last week starring Happy Endings alum Eliza Coupe and it’s absolutely wonderful. Benched has a slew of amazing talent, including Jay Harrington, Maria Bamford and Oscar Nunez, and definitely fits nicely into the world of USA.
In case you missed the premiere you can watch it online.
This week’s episode, titled “Downsizing,” finds Nina at a gala where wealthy corporate lawyers honor the public defenders. She’s so desperate to get back to her old life that she decides to give a speech to impress her former colleagues, only it doesn’t go as planned. Which is something we come to expect from Nina.
