'Girlfriends' S8.9 Review: "R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Find Out What It Means to William"

Sorry for the delay, but here is the review for the ninth Girlfriends episode of Season 8 that aired two weeks ago called "R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Find Out What It Means to William".

This episode was good because it felt like old times again for the second week in a row which was really nice! The girls were up to their same old high jinks which made for a funny episode.

So, the issue at hand in this episode was that William was considering quitting the law firm because he is not being respected as much as he deserves. After weighing his options and talking to Monica, he decides that he is resigning his position as a lawyer. Meanwhile, Monica worries that he will not be able to provide for their new baby. With his mind set on quitting, William goes to work and realizes that his family means much more to him and that sacrifices must be made in order to succeed and be prosperous, so he stays with the firm and keeps his prestigious job.

Now with the funny: Joan gives Lynn an odd-shaped sculpture as a house-warming gift and instead of Lynn just saying she doesn't like it, she gives it to Maya who then gives it to Monica who then gives it right back to Joan telling her that no one likes the bizarre piece. Joan is offended and makes Lynn put it up in her house because that's what friends do.

While all this is going on, someone from the neighborhood asks Maya to write for the local newspaper and she decides to write a gossip column. This becomes a problem for some people when she calls them "ho-ish" and other such funny terms to keep her column poppin.

All in all, a good episode but not the best.... I am really looking forward to tonight's Christmas episode!
