ME HER pays homage to classic romantic comedy even while contorting it into “polyromantic comedy”:
Season 1 began as an impulsive “date” between the suburban husband Jack and neophyte escort Izzy
that spun into a whirlwind scenario that included Jack’s wife Emma. Season Two saw the “throuple” come out
and try to merge their lifestyle into a normal life pattern, but running through a gauntlet of emotions and societal opinions,
they found themselves at differing crosswalk of life, with one of them moving on to new opportunities and a new city. In Season
Three we discover Jack, Emma and Izzy all conflicted – emotionally, about each other, about their own lives –
and discover that love just might help them conquer their own choices and options – maybe…
