It ends with the assumption of more story I'd say. Closer to the end of season 1 or 2 than the original last episode.

Amoebas, it is insanely complicated and it's amazing that it all seems to sync up so nicely with previous episodes. My one gripe would be that it spells out the places where they cross over a but strongly.

So I skipped BBQ #1 and watched the rest solo.

Damn that was good.

And draining - comedy can be exhausting.

Limitations of a shooting schedule with nine principals I guess.

Portia Di Rossi's face is really distracting why did she have work done? I mean if thats her face what do you think Ellen had her do to her vagina?

I think it was due to Hurwitz's original desire to have them watchable in any order. When that didn't pan out extra bits of narration (and there are a few moments where the ADR is incredibly obvious too) seem to have been added.

Once Portia isn't in a wig she's looking a little more natural.

On the second Lindsey episode and she looks so much better without the wig. She looked way bizarre with it.

Zuckercorn is killing it this season. Also DeBree is the best new character. Maria Bamford is unbelievably good.

I'm pretty sure Yoni would back me up on this, but I've known this since Comedians of Comedy came out.

She's seriously one of the most underrated comedic actresses/female stand ups out there. 8)

Well it was not perfect, not by a long shot. Some of the guests were jarring especially Seth Rogan and Kristen Wiig who I love. And the first couple episodes were a slog to get through and the constant repeat of jokes and moments were a chore but the Tobias episodes were great. The episodes that worked the best were the episodes that shifted focus and the Michael episodes were very very not good.
