I was looking forward to this show until they announced Fortune Feimster would be “an aspiring comedian who lacks boundaries”. So her usual obnoxious, oversharing character that’s not the least bit funny? 

Otherwise the casting seemed great.

I’ll be tuning in again when the next season airs! Season 2 rushed through a lot of development of the relationships and I think it suffered from not having a stronger overarching main storyline (Bette’s mayoral race or the tie-in of Alice’s show) that 1) offered updated commentary/representation on race/ethnicity, gender identity and other sociopolitical topics; 2) gave the audience a strong foundation and thread between established and new main characters and; 3) allowed space to introduce characters (even as foils) that make the world these characters live in feel less insular. 

Granted, I’m sure navigating Covid was like 60% of the problem, but for me, what felt really fresh about the new show was how the way the show was photographed felt really modern and stylish and expansive (lots of wide shots esp. in office scenes with big windows or the LA skyline in the backdrop). It’ll be interesting to see if my rewatch of season two still feels so small-scale (both story-wise and visually)
