Have you ever had to take your computer in for repair? Were you worried that the technician would find your enormous stash of porn that you like to pretend doesn’t exist? That’s the situation Steven faces in the latest episode of Tough Love.
Creator Steven Bell talks comments about what inspired the episode, “It’s possible I’m the only one who’s experienced this, but do you know that feeling when you’re laptop’s on the fritz and you know it’s going to die soon, but you still haven’t deleted all that raunchy porn off your hard drive? This episode is about what happens when your computer dies while you’re watching porn. Someone has to fix it and that person is going to see how kinky you are. I had a conversation with an Apple Store employee who said he’s seen more nudes of random people at work then he’s ever seen in his personal dating life. It’s a very humiliating, awkward situation for the repair person and the customer bringing in the computer. So of course, I wanted to make an episode about it.”
The other half of the episode follows Blaire around as she adventures into the world of exercise. She forces herself into the lunch plans of some NYC fitness ladies and things get really awkward.
Bell continues, “This episode is called Shame. It’s one of my favorites of the season. We get to see both Steven and Blaire in very humiliating circumstances and I would say this is our most character defining episode yet.”
