Fans of the classic 1995 teen comedy Clueless will want to check out this week’s episode of TV Land’s The Exes. It will reteam series star Donald Faison with guest star Stacey Dash, marking a Clueless reunion of one of the ’90s’ cutest couple Murray and Dionne, who were adorkable before Zooey Deschanel was a blip on the pop culture radar.
It’s not the first time the Clueless cast has gotten back together. Last year Faison and Dash joined Alicia Silverstone, Breckin Meyer, Elisa Donovan, Justin Walker and Twink Caplan for an Entertainment Weekly photoshoot and a Good Morning America segment. Also, Faison and Meyer are frequent guest stars who like to goof off on Adult Swim’s animated Robot Chicken. But onscreen Clueless reunions are indeed a rare thing, so enjoy.
It’ll be nice seeing Dash do something pretty much everyone can get behind, as lately she’s been in the spotlight for her political views far more than her acting. Her support of Mitt Romney over Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election ignited a fierce backlash, and prompted the actress to defend her choice. She also drew criticism for her tweet supporting embattled TV chef Paula Deen after Deen’s admitted use of the n word.
In “Trading Places,” Dash plays a woman that Phil (Faison) picks up, only to find out that she is a recommitted virgin. Elsewhere, Holly (Kristen Johnston) and Haskell (Wayne Knight) compete for the same woman (Anita Barone), whom Holly sees as a potential new friend and Haskell hopes will blossom into a romantic partner. Stuart (David Alan Basche) shows a different, hornier side to his personality when he meets an energetic woman (Missi Pyle) whose aggressive approach to being friends with benefits brings out a much different side to him than the sensitive guy we know.
The Exes airs Wednesday nights at 10:30pm ET/PT on TV Land.
