I like this show but the constant back and forth about who gets credit for Minx's success is draining.

They did a pretty good job casting the part of Dick Cavett. But I don't think he would ever have blind-sided Joyce like that with the surprise guest. This wasn't the Jerry Springer era of talk shows, by at least a decade. And as soon as I saw Hope Davis I knew there'd be trouble. I don't think she has ever played a nice person. This episode ended on such a sour note. Joyce is just way too emotionally invested in this magazine and refuses to acknowledge Doug's contribution to its success. And Doug doesn't help matters any either by stealing her thunder on the talk show. The two of them really are like oil and water.

He didn't look that much, but he got the cadence and timing down really well. I also agree no way Cavett would pull that either.

I don't necessarily think they're oil and water. Doug sells magazines and does it well. He's gambled on Joyce to the point of hiding 50 large from Tina. The first two issues were totally hers and they sold. They're both doing great. I don't think there's anything wrong with him going out to try to reel in some big fish from the magazine. They both got played by the stuffy lady. And Doug doesn't suffer from a lack of self-esteem. He was apologetic after but probably didn't need to say 'it's my ball'. 

GOAT in the 70s isn't what that means now. I don't know why they were calling the QB GOAT in that context. 

I liked the flashbacks. Those dudes on the commune were dumb and needed a smack.
