So are they doing some sort of "Well, it's Gretchen's choice to go with Jimmy and not just that poo poo went south with Boon" sort of situation? I don't know anymore.

Makes a lot of really bad and gross posts, don't give him the benefit of a doubt.

Who is this weird guy with a moustache and why do I love him even though I hate everything about him?

Moustache Hipster Guy sucks and I hate everything he stands for

"Why is it blue?"
"It's always blue."


This episode was good and this show is still good but this season is setting up to likely be my least favourite so far. While the writing for the leads is spot-on they’ve shoved them into some sorta uninteresting storylines. I don’t care about Boone, or Jimmy’s adventures in the erotica scene, or Lindsay’s troubles making work friends, or Moustache Hipster Guy. I feel like keeping Jimmy and Gretchen apart so much rather than centring the season around their conflict has caused it to suffer. The final scene in this week’s episode was by far my favourite.

Also I hope Becca dies

My favorite subplot of the whole series is Becca trying to convince everyone Jimmy sucks while being the worst human being imaginable

her making out with her gay(?) friend right in front of Vernon was hilarious.

I'm behind an episode right now so I can only assume this is the mustache guy we all hate:

I have no idea where mustache guy came from. While last week's episode was great in its own way in character development, It feels like we watched that instead of watching how the other characters got to this episode. There was little to no build up to Jimmy's potential fling at the expo, which made that scene just sort of throw away. Linds' current status, while having the most of the backstory build up, just seems like a resetting of the button from where we saw her at the start of the season when she wasn't just dumb Lindsay and on her own. How or why did they de-evolve her?

Even more confusing is that Gretchen's really only development from last week's time invested in to her or even mention of that whole episode was just passing off her friendship bracelet to Lindsay

I'm also feeling like the writing is really good but the lack of them dealing with the actual conflict they set up from last week's season finale through all 8 episodes makes this the worst season so far. It was only at the last moments of the episode did it feel good again, but I don't have a clue what they're doing in doubling down on this whole Boone relationship build up.

I thought they were building up the first women he kissed.

Lindsay was going to inevitably be the first and worst flandersization. I think giving her a reset might actually be ok for her character. She can be terrible in new and different ways!

I didn't see it as that, as much. I think the sustained focus on Gretchen's reaction after Boone recommitted to their relationship was meant to be compared to Gretchen accepting Jimmy's proposal. She felt crushed by the weight of Boone's affection and empathized with Jimmy in that moment.

Johnny Pemberton is the worst. His stand up sucks. I was angry every time I saw him on screen.

Johnny Pemberton is one of those rare comedians which gets cast almost exclusively as 'most obnoxious person alive'.


I don't like him.

He's not so obnoxious in Son Of Zorn. It took till the second season of Superstore for me to realize Cheyanne's baby daddy/husband was the same actor.

I do like him, but mostly because he does a good job playing the douche character.

Ahhhh that's right, couldn't remember where I saw him other than Superstore. He does a pretty decent job of playing awkward teenage son.
