“Knotty Pine,” the fourth episode of Playing House, marks the mid-point for the season and the show’s finest installment, deftly moving between comedy and drama to deliver the best of both genres. The episode culminates with an emotional conversation between Tina and Mark about the future of their relationship, a powerfully broken moment for a comedy, but one that feels completely at home in the world of Playing House.
