When the plots get more interesting, I will stop obsessing over the distance between characters. But for now, it’s all I can think about. When Diane and Alexis were on opposite ends of that sofa, I was like, “That’s 4 feet max! And stop leaning forward to talk!!” I really hope things pick up soon— my anxiety can’t take it.
I have actually wondered if there might be some green screen action in a few scenes. Some people have appeared to have those weird, overly defined edges that come from a process shot. But I assume there’s no money in the budget for such things?
I really liked Molly Burnett when she was on, and always hoped they’d find a permanent role for her. She might actually make a good Sam recast. I don’t know what it is about the current temp Sam, but I’m not feeling her. She is a much better actor than KM, though. (Faint praise, I know. Wiley’s stuffed giraffe is a better actor than KM.)
Count me among those who like Michael’s new ‘do. With the new hair and the leaner, more angular face, I actually find him attractive for the first time since, well, ever. He finally looks like a grownup. Neil’s Covid hair is out of control, though. I guess his Flowbee broke?
