I really liked the first 3 episodes, episode 4 seemed like it was from something entirely unrelated.

Hang your laundry off em

I never thought seeing her in a Bloom/Akerman sandwich is something I wanted to see. TIL.

So much nudity

Not to be too bold, but does anyone think this show is about consent?

Watched the first episode. The end seemed...off.

Everything seem off about this show to me. The characters are not that likable and it was kind of difficult to watch. Had trouble getting through the second episode

I enjoyed the first season, but bailed on the vegan episode.

Will definitely watch S2.

Wasn't aware of this series' existence until today, so I tried it out. Only three episodes in, but I'm really enjoying this. Short, amusing episodes that don't drag out the drama, and resolve fairly happily by the end. My question is, why have I never heard of Elizabeth Reaser before? Smokin!!!

You didn't watch Mad Men? She was only in a couple of episodes, but they were good.

If you haven't heard of this, you can also watch the first series. It was pretty good, excluding the one episode that I didn't make it through.

Started the 2nd season, first episode was an interesting take on millennial PC Fight or Flight.

There is more tie back to Season 1 than I was expecting

Well, according to her resumé on IMDB, I haven't seen a single thing she's been in, which would explain why I've never heard of her.

Just finished binging both seasons, and I found the second season finale ending kind of weird.

Spoiler:
Kate Micucci's character gets a phone call, and you're not sure who it's from. The boyfriend who just broke up with her? The lady she was babysitting for? Maybe the couple she had the threesome with?

I'd watch a spin-off series based on Kate Micucci's character on this, they're thoroughly the most entertaining episodes from each season

Season 3 Episode 5 was some seriously good shit. Really enjoyed it. Great performances by Michael Chernus and Elizabeth Reaser.
