    S03.E01: Season 3, Episode 1

    As soon as Isaac Pincher leaves, Nancy starts castigating herself, saying that Will would kill her for this. Charlotte responds by saying that Will is in New York or Scarborough, "plying his fists". I'm guessing he took Jacob with him. As for Lucy -- she doesn't have much of a choice here. She sunk all her money into that house and she can't get it back. She's reached her breaking point as a harlot and can't go back to doing it herself. The Greek Street House didn't need two bawds, and with her refusing to do sex work she would have been a superfluity there anyway. So she's chosen to feel positive about the Molly House. She'll make money and she won't have to do any sex work. Her presence will help to obscure the house's true nature (as her new partner hinted), because what's wrong with a fashionable young courtesan investing in a clothing business? If anything she'll make it seem like it's a front for coming to see her, not coming for men.

    S03.E01: Season 3, Episode 1

    Episode is up and watched!!! Well first of all, I miss Will and Margaret, and I'd love to know what happened to Miss Pettifer, Sukey and Hannah, and most definitely Amelia and Violet, but the cast has gotten so big I'm willing to wait a little while on more news about them. I feel like Lydia is still exactly where she deserved, but so is Charles. I hope Cherry ends up with Charlotte, she's such a crafty woman who was wasted on Charles. Lady Fitz is getting better than she deserves from Charlotte after letting the Spartans run loose, but I feel for her with Sophia. I can't imagine how hard it would be to refute your child's romantic ideals by admitting they themselves were a product of rape, much less incestual rape. I was surprised at how happy I was for Emily finding a place for herself and getting educated. I don't think she's truly malicious, but I also don't know that she's the type to run a business well enough to make it compete. I'm glad she left the pimp guys, anyway. The pimp guys...I've been keeping back from spoilers, but I'm tentatively interested in seeing a narrative of men trying to break into a female-dominated field instead of the reverse. Not that I hope they win though. I hope Nancy gets her hands on the firestarter and brings Lucy along to help. Speaking of, I'm glad to see that Lucy's character has followed a through-line from the beginning; that even though she can be taught to be an excellent harlot, she just plain doesn't like the work. I hope she excels in her new business and finds what she's really good at and enjoys doing.

    In The Dark

    Man, that was some sniper-caliber character assassination on Dean. Good thing I didn't get too invested in him. I was surprised at how bad I felt about Jules though (and her cat!). We're renewed through season 2, and I am tentatively intrigued by what might be coming to Guiding Hope and its new partner. Felix can't blame every problem on Murphy now; he and Jess took the money. I like Nia's mix of motherliness and evil. They mentioned Chloe's grandmother (period episode) so I assume that's where she's headed, but if they want to ret-con that next season, I think it would actually make a lot of sense for Murphy's parents to be emergency foster parents. I mean, they have experience with their own adopted child with blindness.

    Is it weird that I replayed several times to check what color Dean's shoe laces were? I *think* they might be different from The Mysterious Guy. Or it could just be different lighting on the same laces.

    I don't know a lot about service animals, but should Pretzel be reacting to commands other than Murphy's? He's not a pet, he's literally her eyes, and he can't be going off against her wishes. One thing I do remember reading about (a long time ago, so I may be completely off) is Seeing Eye dogs being trained not to bark except in particular situations. I think the only time we've seen Pretzel speak is when Murphy is yelling for help. Also, if even I know not to touch a service dog without express permission from its owner, those guys at the bar had no business petting Pretzel.

    Well this episode made me do a 180 on Felix; he was pretty awesome! Also when Vanessa started so aggressively hashtagging instead of just taking the photo to post later, I was like, "get out Jess, get out now". Aside from the fact that she was being annoying as shit, some of those tags really did make it sound like she was in the relationship partly for the bragging rights about how woke she is.

    I've just done a series re-watch, and in the pilot, Murphy became the organization's receptionist when their old one quit. The pilot also has a scene where Felix tells Chloe that a chair is "here" and she complains about it, prompting Murphy to say he does stuff like that all the time to her. Makes Felix seem like a much bigger asshole in retrospect. Or at least, he's not motivated by wanting to help blind people so much as wanting to prove himself in his career. Also in the pilot -- Murphy's parents talk about how they started Guiding Hope to help Murphy "get her life back on track", which makes me wonder if she was actually on a track at some point. I'd like to know if she tried college or any other career. IME homeschoolers don't tend to leave home after finishing school with absolutely no plan. We either stick around at home doing nothing (me) or we choose a course and try to plow through it (also me). Murphy is a lot of things but she's also clearly intelligent. I really want to know what made her essentially give up on doing much of anything other than living in the moment.

    Considering how hard she screwed over Charlotte - and by extension, took away the safety of every girl in London by helping free her brother - I would think Lady Fitz would be a good source of guilt-fueled support from the upper class. I don't see her abandoning Charlotte just because she got what she wanted.

    Bob's Burgers

    The season's over, time to pick Emmy Candidates! For me the clear front runner is I Bob Your Pardon. I loved tons of episodes this seasons but I really think that the Emmy episodes are best when the whole family are together in the storyline, and this season they almost always split the episodes into at least two plots. I worry they might submit Bed, Bob and Beyond. It was a fun experimental episode, but I think it lacked the charm that the real-world setting has. I guess Just One of the Boys 4 Now For Now is also a strong contender if only for the crazy great guest stars, too.

    I loved that Arnold wasn't all talk. He was a teeny little badass!

    I literally gasped with pride at Louise riding her big-girl bike. And while I usually don't like Tina in competition mode, Jimmy Jr. deserves to have his ego deflated. I love that he's an even weirder runner than Tina. It's nice that they're filling out Gene's friends now, since for so long it was really only the girls who had friend circles. Courtney's annoying but can be sweet, and while I didn't like Alex in his first appearance, I love Thomas Middleditch. Gene and Alex make such a sweet little team. I also thought it was great that they chose Large Tommy from an existing background character instead of a new design.

    The Act

    I read an article somewhere saying that Didi just liked the name Gypsy, and Gypsy's father chose her second name as a tribute to Guns N' Roses. Gypsy Rose Lee's real name was in fact Louise Hovick, IIRC,
