  • An alternate reality means a delightful romp and a fitting close to the season.

    It was only a matter of time before the show tackled the alternate reality concept and they had a ball with it. There was the obvious parts of characters so different like Noser channeling Shaft and Pip as a priest but the hot version of Ida was a nice touch. Having the Middleman basically be Snake Plisskin was inspired and made things even more wildly fun.

    That the alternate version of Wendy was the baddie I saw coming but it did lead to nice stuff of that world's Lacey bonding with our Wendy and highlighting their friendship. Also loved how Lacey became the assistant Middleman in the end with the "reformed" Ida.

    Overall, a wonderful capper to what we can hope is just the first season of one of the most delightful shows to hit the airwaves in quite a while. Here's hoping for more wild fun down the road.
