HouseBroken Season 1 E10 Review: A Creepy Raccoon Stole My Heart
As usual, a heads up for anyone still needing to watch this episode of HouseBroken, plenty of spoilers ahead. This episode of HouseBroken is working as a two-parter with the other half airing on Monday of next week on FOX. This episode's story revolved around Honey coming to grips with a new puppy arriving next door and the problem dealing with letting go of the need to hold back. Other characters find some development in their personality like The Gray One helping Tabitha decide to go back home, that her owners love her truly and have been trying to find her. Poor Shel deals with the complications of an owner growing up and lacking the same dedication they did as a child to their pet, and this greatly affects the turtle's future as we don't know whether or not he's ok after meeting the tire of his owner's car.
At the end of the episode, we witness Honey running off with the wild coyote she's obsessed over previously. Among the moments that went down, seeing the raccoon build a mini Honey out of the dog's hair and then getting caught was hilarious.
Like needing more cowbell, I simply need the raccoon in HouseBroken to get more screen time or at least become way more of the main character. The odd, crude and random nature of this character is what continues to garner the biggest laughs from me, outside the great jokes aimed at Ray Liotta needing to do work on Cameo with a low price request to make himself relevant. Moments like that one alongside glimpses of the raccoon's life in the shed, complete with a billowing summer hat, greatly help HouseBroken continue to develop others and make great content. Maybe it's my love of dark humor or the way this series has me continuing to connect to their characters in a slow but meaningful way, but either way, it's working. If HouseBroken continues working and implementing their brand of comedy and storytelling in this way, their next season will be even better.
