So, ugh, what happened? There wasn't an episode this week? Silicon Valley will save me from lovely sitcoms for a day but that only goes so far without seeing Selina destroying fools .verbally

The Leftovers had an extended series finale, that mighta had something to do with it.

I think they bumped it for the Leftovers finale and so it could get on the same schedule as Silicon Valley

Speaking of, is Silicon Valley good this year? I guess I'll marathon it at some point regardless, but HBO's schedule got all funky and Sundays are busy.

Yeah, it's as good as ever. Still has a frustrating tendency to reset the start-up's progress every couple of episodes, but it's funny as hell.

Jonah's story is the more entertaining one but a great foil to Selena's death spiral. We're the Jeffersons!

Really I've been waiting for weeks for Selena to have to face the fact that she's a grandma, and also finding out the biological father is Richard Splett. There is going to be a meltdown to end all meltdowns.

if they could somehow make it work that Richard wasn't able to bring himself to masturbate, so instead got his evermasturbating best friend to supply him with some sperm to smuggle in

Jonah continues to be the best character on this show, loved his meeting with the President and that double fuckover at CBS at the end was fantastic.

What a great episode. It's too bad we didn't get more of Jonah and Dan out on the town.

Given the concessions Jonah was getting and the name of the group, Jonah is actually a more capable politician than that guy, having his caucus stolen out from under him notwithstanding. Let that sink in.

I love how he's such a bumbling simpleton yet somehow hyper competent at everything, like casually speaking fluent Arabic to Selina's side piece.

Why did Jonah's campaign come crashing down so suddenly? I didn't get why Sherman Tans suddenly pulled up and ran.

Jonah had the government by the balls (heh) and gave it all up because of Daylight Savings Time last episode.

One line that comes by so fast you barely notice it, when all the staffers are talking about where they appear in Selina's "auto"biography:

"How many mentions did you get, Richard?"
"Oh, just the dedication"
