This show is so unpredictable, in a good way. This was an amazing episode.

Solid episode, only 2 left.

I can do with less of Short's theatrics but a small price to pay.

I think Short is the best part of the show. His over-theatrical reaction to everything is hilarious.

With two episodes left, I knew it was more than just the deli guys killing Tim. But at least the cop can still go after them for the grave robbing and potentially the accidental death of the girl.

My wife called the twist at the end early on in the episode.

Yeah, my wife thought something would happen with her too. Shame, she was an interesting addition.

Well shit. My totally suspected her but I thought she was a red herring.

Was she with Tim or was it someone else?

Jane Lynch as the Brazos stunt double

That was pretty brilliant casting.

Yeah, it doesn’t seem like she would have left herself the note. I can see her giving herself a non lethal wound to throw off the scent, maybe.


After watching the new Scream trailer today, I’m really suspecting two different people responsible for the whole thing. I just hope nobody shows up in a ghostface mask.

So so good. Loved it. Oliver seeing Saz and telling Charles that he had too much work done.

It really is. Completely different vibe but just as good.

I loved how Martin Short was trying to sell podcast hoodies during the meeting where they were all voted out of the building.

They're claiming Season 2 will start filming before the end of the year.

Kind of a perfect ending for a comedy like this. I can't wait for season 2.

They used a lot of footage from the finale in the trailers for this.
Spoiler:
Amy Ryan is pretty great in the finale, her little excited giggle fits were perfect

Steve Martin's speech to her had me

That was perfectly cut/delivered by Martin. My wife and I got a big laugh out of that part.

I kept expecting another twist but she sold it in the end. Just totally unhinged and completely believable.

But who else is in the building with a grudge against Mabel?

Is that the loose ends she was wondering about?

So, so good. Totally enjoyable beginning to end.
I had totally forgotten about the first scene in the show right up until it became the final scene, which was so clever.

And yeah that Martin speech was hysterical.

Fun ending. I don't think Martin did a good job acting like he had been drugged. His movements screamed acting/not real. His monologue and payoff from it made up for it though.

It wasn't comedic; it was just bad acting. The monologue then seeing what he was actually doing was comedic.
