Taking care of a sick partner is one of the sweetest things anyone can do for a mate. While I’ve spent a weekend or two playing the doting girlfriend in the past, there comes a time when you and your boo need a break.
The Latest episode of “The Couple” deals with just this dynamic. After the main character injuries himself, he relies — heavily — on his girlfriend to nurse him back to health. Because this is a comedy, he is predictably annoying, but I found myself sympathizing with how she handles his many requests.
