Privileged Recap: Episode 10, "All About Overcompensating"

Privileged Rundown: Episode 10, "All About Overcompensating"

Alright, Buzz readers, you win. By popular demand (and, well, because I freaking love this show, too), I'm kicking off my rundowns of Privileged today! Prove your dedication to this sweet CW show by really chatting it up in the comments, OK?

So, on this week's show, things are heating up between Megan and Will, but the two of them don't seem to have an easy path ahead. Also, there's a scheming, bad-girl Baker twin in the house, and for once, it's not Sage. To chat about this episode, just


  • First of all, I love Megan practicing her saucy "Heyyyyyy, Will!" faces in the mirror, only to greet him with a less-attractive expression that's about halfway to a scowl. She's a smooth operator, that one.
  • Speaking of smooth — Megan attempting to get herself some hot dates is hysterical, especially when it involves a pre-8 a.m. phone call to Charlie. Not awkward at all.
  • You just know that someone in the Privileged writers' room once dated a guy whose outgoing voicemail message ended with "Rock om." Cause that? Is something you just can't make up.
  • On the topic of voicemail, have you ever noticed how many BlackBerries there are in this show? Once I noticed a few of them, they seemed to be everywhere.
  • OK, a man sneaks onto your patio, all catburglar-like: Adorable or creepy?
  • Is it me, or does Charlie look not altogether happy when he hugs Mandy after asking her to move in with him?
  • So, Rose gets a D on that English test and doesn't seem on her way to acing the history exam, either. You know, one of the things I really love about this show is that they've created a character who struggles with school even though she wants to do better. Usually, shows just have the smart slacker, Sage-style.
  • Well, hi there, bad girl Rose! Buying a test is not too shabby for a brief foray into scheming (except for, you know, that whole ethical line-crossing and potential expulsion). Of course, Sage has been badder for longer, so she goes the extra mile and gets the answers sewn into a purse for Rose. I guess that would work, if the questions are in the exact same order and nobody wonders why somebody fashionable now has an alphabet soup handbag?
  • I love that Rose takes a moment the night before to match her shoes and her necklace to the "cheat bag." It's so endearing because of course Rose would do that!
  • Speaking of fashion — Megan's clothes! So adorable! I'd show you pictures of all the things I want (that red dress from the date and the yellow silk top, for starters) if the CW had bothered to take pictures of this episode, but since they didn't, I'll settle for ogling this purple dress from the opening scene.

Did you watch this week's episode? Do you think Megan and Will are right for each other? How sucky is it that we have to wait two weeks for the next episode?

I absolutely love this show and I'm growing really attached to the characters. I love Charlie because he's so cute and sweet but also sexy! Of course I think Megan is more compatible with Charlie than Will, but it will be interesting to see how that story plays out. I love Marco too! He's always cooking something that makes me hungry. I also love Megan's bedroom and the robe she was wearing when Will climbed in. I agree that something feels off about Laurel wanting to open up to Megan so quickly and reveal her life story. I'm sure she could have hired a private eye to find Miles, but for some reason she wanted Megan to find him. I'm not sure what that's all about, but it sounds like another interesting development. Do we know exactly what happened to Sage and Rose's parents? How and when did they die? Just curious. I'll be glued to the TV for two hours as well every Monday for Gossip Girl and this show. I purchased season 2 of Gossip Girl on iTunes just in case I miss it, and so my girlfriends and I can watch recaps. It's fun to be 30 and loving these kinds of shows because I'm sort of through the whole highschool/college drama, but I can relate to Megan's post college drama!

YEH! So happy you're doing a recap of Privileged. I love this show! But Seriously did Rose really think no one would think her purse was a little odd? She should have at least set it at her feet instead of right in front of her on the desk! Makes it much more obvious.

Buzz thanks sooo much for the weekly recap. I've been wondering why there wasn't one since you love the show as much as we do. Sadly I only saw pieces of the show this week because I was busy baking cupcakes for a friends birthday. I know this is not a popular opinion but I don't really want Meghan and Will to be together. I Know they've been pushing that story since the beginning but I agree that they aren't "cut from the same cloth". I think it's more like Marco said in one of the earlier episodes Meghan is the kind of girl that boys get at the end of the movie and even though Will had his little dating epiphany at the end of the episode I don't think he's reached the end of the movie yet. Also am I the only girl who feels like they patterned Meghan's dating awkwardness after me? It's so nice to see a woman on TV who isn't just swimming in guys all the time and who actually has difficulty maneuvering the dating world. The whole answer purse idea was genius, horribly unethical and immoral but genius nonetheless. Sage is not my favorite person on the show but she really and totally always has Rose's back even if her methods are not that noble. I think she blamed Meghan for the pressure on Rose mostly because she's still jealous of their bond and doesn't know how to react to them being so close.

Buzz, that yellow top was from J. Crew. Megan wears a ton of J Crew.

So glad to know so many of my fellow readers are loving this show. I think it's a great idea for the CW to put it on after Gossip Girl also. To me, that will be great two hours of TV. Thanks for the recap.

Buzz... you are great! I absolutely love this show. I kinda think that Megan and I could be life twins. I'm so glad that Will had that realization after going out on a date with someone else because I've been waiting on them to get together all season and they look good together. Charlie, Charlie, Charlie! Ask the girl to move in, then look like "wtf did I just do". Not a good look at all. I love Marco. I just thought I would put that out there.

I like the line where Mandy says to Meghan: "I just think it's a lot of drama over a guy who may not be as into you as you are into him." It's really a true statement that women should keep in mind, and it's good that Meghan had someone to say it to her. But, I am glad that Meghan and Will are hitting it off! It's so cute!

I really love this show, and I think the storyline with Rose struggling with school and straying to the dark side is realistic and interesting. And yes, the Rock Om part was hilarious! I love Marco.

I LOVE this show and I loved last night episode the best. Megan & Will are adoreable! I really love Megans wardrobe and isn't it cute how she always wears the jeans made by her real-life fiance's company (William Rast)? She wears several different pairs each episode! I haven't seen many blackberries, but Megan and Charlie both have Palm Centros, which are cute.

Will and Meghan are adorable together. I'm really loving this show. Hope it keeps up and stays on the air! It's just so nice to have a sweet-not high drama show on the air. It fills my Gilmore Girls sweet spot!

I love this show. Its adorable. And after Gossip Girl, its probably my second favorite show currently on the CW. I think I really like Megan and Will together. They're cute. And yeah, Will on the patio was a bit creepy and stalkerish, but it was also kind of sweet, in its own way. At least he acknowledged that it was a bit creepy. Oh, and I adore Megan and Marco's scenes together.

Will on the patio, was very funny in real life would definitely be creepy, but it works for the show. Rose buying the test reminded me of a scandal at my high school. Where a bunch of AP students got caught cheating on their AP final. Not because they needed to cheat, after all they had to have been smart enough to qualify for the AP test in the first place, but the pressure just got to them. I think it might have even been mentioned in the San Francisco Times, not sure... anyway that's what I think was going on with Rose, because she probably didn't even need to cheat. The only reason she got a D on her English test is because she didn't finish the book, other than that she had been studying her little butt off. The answers sewn into a purse was a little cool, in a very unethical way. I would have never thought of that, then again when I was in school it was high tech to text the answers.

I agree, BuzzSugar - Charlie did not look happy about his new "roomie." He's overcompensating for being totally in love with Megan still. Besides, they've been going out for what, a day?

Woo hoo! Thanks Buzz! This show gets better with every episode. Every time Meaghan and Will are together I giggle like a tween, they're just do darn cute!
