Kidding episode 3 preview: Can Mr. Pickles survive without Jeff?

Kidding trailerMoving into Kidding episode 3 on Showtime next week, there is reason to worry that Jeff Pickles could be fired from his own show.

In the process of managing his grief, we’re seeing Jeff struggle with the idea of moving forward and having the show be the same. He’s wanted to do the whole episode about death and, beyond that, we’ve also seen him tonight try to change the gender identity for one of his characters. In a lot of ways, we are seeing him try to do everything that he can to make this show more progressive. Yet, in the process of that not everyone else is on the same page as him … probably because not everyone may really know whether or not some of these ideas are coming from the best place mentally. Jeff hasn’t been thinking clearly, as evidenced by the fact that he bought the house next door to his ex Jill just so that he can be close to everyone … without actually telling anyone what he’s doing. He’s exhibiting the behavior patterns of someone who cannot let go, and we have a feeling that this is only going to worsen over time if nobody steps in.

Below, the Kidding episode 3 synopsis below offers up a little more insight on what lies ahead:

Jeff tries to fix his heartbreak. Deirdre deals with her daughter’s developing medical condition. Seb outlines the future of Mr. Pickles’ Puppet Time without Jeff.

Is removing Jeff from his show the best thing for it? Maybe if it starts to become clear that he cannot actually continue to function in the way that he once did. Yet, at the same time we don’t exactly think that it’s the best thing for him. One of the things that he is struggling with the most at the moment is whether or not he can really separate himself from the persona that made him a star.
