Just finished the 1st episode. It had a few odd moments (Bradley and Eric doing that weird song and dance), but overall a good start. Crudup was great. He really carried the episode. That was an intense moment when Bradley chewed him out. I felt like she was more hurt that Corey kept that from her because she thought they were close friends.

at the end when Corey saw on the ticker that Hannah's family filed the wrongful death suit against UBA....."Fuck!" It was nice seeing Reese back to her natural hair color.

I was a little confused. Corey was being "fired" by the board of UBA after the incident, but they then jump forward in time and Corey is like running the network. I felt like I was missing something.

So on the behind the scenes extra after the episode, they revealed the episodes they shot pre-pandemic were indeed scrapped.

Also the Times square sequence on New Years Eve was all shot on green screen in Los Angeles with visual effects. That sequence looked pretty good.

Wow that was a good effect. I had no idea.

I enjoyed this episode a lot. So nice to finally have it back. Crudip is amazing as always. And I loved Reese singing and dancing and want it in every single episode.

Wow, Valerina Golino sighting! And arenít Will Arnett and Holland Taylor a little overqualified for their parts?

Still I mostly liked the episode. Moved the story forward. Little worried about Danny flying to Wuhan Province on ďChina AseanĒ Airlines.

And while I love Billy Crudip as much as any unrelated straight male could, Iím a little worried that heís becoming too much the focus of the show. I think Cory works best as a behind the scenes supporting character, not the central focus of the story. Hopefully heíll go back to that now that Bradly and Alex are back together. I donít want him to turn into 30 Rockís Jack Donaghy.

Bradley and Alex’s confrontation was pretty tense. Overall I enjoyed it and yeah it moved things forward. Bradley is still very angry at Cory.

Interested in seeing how it goes with Chip coming back in the mix and how that affects his relationship with his fiancť.

Yeah Danny flying to Wuhan, I don’t see good things coming from what is about to transpire.

and I didn’t realize that was Valerina Golina. Haven’t heard that name in decades.

Fell behind a few weeks on this. Watched episode 3 last night and

Reese and Julianna Margulies making out. That was unexpected

Binged season 1 and found it quite entertaining.

fell asleep during the first episode of Season 2 though , but nice to have a few episodes to catch up on.

I am really not into this season, and judging from the lack of comments (especially after a major event during the ending of the last episode), I am not the only one.

S2 is up and down for me. Too much is getting back to where they were, the stakes feel lower and it's just not super interesting, I did like episode 7 though.

Alright I just got caught up. Since the most recent episode aired 7 days ago, I'm not going to spoiler tag the big plot point.

I wasn't really surprised the big end with Mitch getting killed off at the end. Since this was an Alex and Mitch centered episode, I felt like it was set up for their big confrontation and to bring closure to this storyline. Now the series can move on.

There was some good performances in this episode by Carrell and Aniston.

I'm sure once Alex gets back to the States and gets word of Mitch's death, she will be a wreck once again.

Ep 8 was pretty brutal and probably the strongest episode this season imo. The higher ups with glee in their eyes for a big story was something they haven't shown much of.

Season finale is up. After really loving Season 1, this season was a pretty big step down for me. I didn't care about anything that happened.

Same. I kept waiting for season 2 to "get good" but it just kind of stalled out and ended.

Agree 100%. Very lackluster finale. Hopefully we get a S3 and it bounces back. If that was the series finale then, meh.

I can't disagree, didn't think it was bad but it wasn't super compelling.

Still, I do hope it gets a 3rd season to, at the very least, wrap everything up.

An issue I have with the show right now, even if there is a time jump, is that this is an entire era I have no interest in revisiting, even in fictionalized form.

Agreed...underwhelming finale and season. Though I'll likely tune in for another season if it comes back.

Renewed. They hired a new showrunner as well.
