  • Creative, modern - crams an hour of comedy into 22 minutes.

    Great, great episode. I love the writing and the characters in this series. It just doesn't follow set "characterizations" that we see on other shows. I loved the bit where they mute out the show in the background and it turns out to be the best show for her. I loved the arguments, flashbacks, porch talk, and pajamas talk. Creative, innovative, and modern scripts - I've never watched anything like this, with the dialogue so original. It sort of reminds me of Friends or Will and Grace. It just feels really good to sit back and watch these friendships develop more and more over time. Feels like they pack more into 22 minutes than most shows can say in an hour.
