Fresh Snark: Spreading Some Love (and Hate) on Polyamory: Married & Dating’s Episode 6

Jen is literally the only reason watching scenes with the quad is bearable. Maybe because her reaction is in tune with the reaction of the audience so often.

With a large mug of coffee and plenty of coughing and sniffling, I steeled myself to watch episode 6 of Showtime's Polyamory: Married & Dating.
