'Resident Advisors' fan recap: Incident reports - sexiled

Season 1 | Episode 2 | “Sexiled” | Aired Apr 9, 2015

On episode two of Resident Advisors, Thoreau College is listed as number 11 on Buzzfeed‘s list of colleges most likely to give you a STD. This causes Dean Berber to task Olivia (Jamie Chung) with the job of getting her residents to stop having sex. Unfortunately for Olivia, it’s “sex season,” and everyone’s hormones are running rampant, leading to multiple incidents. Here’s the report.


Incident No. 1: The Unexplainable Triple

RA Tyler (Graham Rogers) goes to RA Sam (Andrew Bachelor) to ask him where extra beds are, because a girl staying in a triple doesn’t have one. Apparently, there are no triples in the dorm. Tyler and Sam are left to solve the mystery of how one room ended up with three residents. In the room, they met Beth, a nervous, quiet girl who’s scared of her roommate, PJ. Beth claims PJ just showed up one day, saying it was her room.

With Sam’s help, Tyler does some investigating and discovers PJ isn’t a registered student. She’s a squatter, it seems. Sam, Tyler, and a campus cop then kick PJ, a Blink-182 superfan who believes procrastinating on Facebook qualifies her to be a college student, out of the dorm. Unfortunately for the RAs, it turns out Beth is the true squatter; PJ, also know as Paula Jean, really is a student. Awkward. Thankfully, Tyler is able to correct the situation. That’s what he tells Olivia, anyway.

Incident No. 2: Condoms vs. Stapler

Resident Advisors

Olivia entrusts RA Amy (Alison Rich) and RA Doug (Ryan Hansen) to help her stop the residents from having sex, making her first mistake of the episode. Amy is given the task of promoting safe sex and decides to do so by stapling condoms to a bulletin board for residents to take.

Unfortunately, Amy fails to realize that condoms with holes are inherently useless. When Olivia sees the board, she tells Amy the residents can’t use those condoms. Amy, thankfully, tells her no one has taken any of those yet. However, the first 150 she stapled to the board were already taken. Oh dear.

Olivia, Amy, and Doug then embark on a mission to take back every faulty condom before the residents spread STDs and get accidentally knocked up. They’re able to track down a total of 149 before Amy struggles to remember who took the last one. After taking a trip down memory lane with Doug, Amy is able to remember it was a previously sexiled couple that took the condom, and Doug is able to remember their names. Score!

The two RAs and Olivia run to the couple’s room and find them having a romantic dinner together, thank God! Except for the fact that they already slept together beforehand. But the day is saved because they were smart enough to not use a condom with holes in it and got rid of it (giving it to Doug’s crazy ex-girlfriend). Hooray for common sense!

Final Evaluation

Overall, the sexiled plot was too predictable to be funny. But the episode did well with its secondary plot. The unexpected twist of the squatter was hilarious, and was a typical move for RA Tyler, who was too busy trying to get into Beth’s pants to realize there was a scam going on.

The only thing that kept the sexiled plot entertaining was at the ending with Doug’s crazy ex (Vanessa Lengies), who should really get more screen time. Besides that, these RAs could stand to do better.

Resident Advisors is streaming on Hulu.
