SPOILERS BELOW! Another stream of thought episode watch along.
It’s been a few episodes since I’ve reviewed, but I have to say the show looks less live and more pre-recorded. Is this a good thing? Probably. They are getting much better at their timing and cuts. And everyone gets puppets! This is fun already.
I love that they let Brett be gay this season, and have him vocalize his desires just like everyone else.
The energy is back! I still hate how referential it is. But I guess the 4th wall is broken and I need to accept it.
The puppets are stealing this show.
I don’t really care about the Lesley story. The will-they-won’t-they with her and glasses guy is not happening. There’s nothing compelling there, and they don’t let him talk enough to make him a sympathetic enough character.
So I guess Bret Morin is having a Netflix special. Thanks for the plug. The real world plugs just take me out of the show too much, and I can’t focus on suspending my disbelief. I haven’t accepted the lack of 4th wall.
I wish the entire episode was just the puppets. Are we supposed to feel bad for glasses guy?
For the fans who have watched all the episodes, does this three episode relationship with Lesley and Mike seem like this is how it should have gone? Did this seem predictable? It feels neither sad, nor funny. What has it done to move things forward? It feels like nothing has happened with this mini arc.
I wonder if they get to keep those puppets? I would.
Are all the episodes ending on group hugs now? There wasn’t much to laugh out loud at. I think the previous two seasons are funnier, and I’m not sure if the show can get it back.
This episode had 2.7 million viewers live. Is that going to be enough to get a third season? I don’t think so, but it may not matter, because the experiment of doing all the episodes live might have been worth the poor results. I still think it’s risky and admirable for them to try.
Leave me your thoughts in the comments so we can discuss! Thanks for checking my review.
