Watched the first ep and enjoyed it.

Meryl Streep isnít playing herself and it looks like sheíll play a prominent role this season.

Spoiler:
They tease her as the killer in this first episode

Nice to have it back. Streep looks to be a fun addition. Not sure about Rudd's character yet.

Glad that they didn't have to

Question:
Spoiler:
We haven't learned what actually made Rudd pass out on stage yet, right? He didn't mention it at all during his speech when he got to the apartment party?

In his speech, he said it was something he ate, but I think it was a failed poison attempt. Nice fake out with him being alive then dead again.

Meryl Streepís minor character (within the play) gets asked one question by the detective and responds with a three minute monologue? No wonder Martin Shortís character was ostracized from the business.

I know we're supposed to suspend disbelief when watching any TV show but...
Spoiler:
Should a doctor diagnose a heart attack and prescribe treatment outside of a hospital setting? That feels weird and inappropriate.

So far lots of prime candidates for the killer so I'm going with an oddball early pick of producers son.

Doctors use to and still do make house calls. In the era of telehealth, some do it via video calls from their own homes.

When I stayed in New York, the hotel had an advertisement for doctors to come to your room for treatment.

Iíve even had doctors add prescriptions when Iím on the phone with them.

My guess is Tobert.

He's my pick, as well (although Tobert may be involved).

The moment Oliver said he wanted to make a musical, I knew it was yet another excuse to let Meryl sing. Not getting Evita permanently scarred her. It actually wasn't a bad song.

My daughter pointed out that in both S1 and S2 we hadn't even met the killer for several episodes. Though the hankie suggests we have this year. My guess is Ben's brother. And that the person who poisoned him is not the same as the one who pushed him.

We also had this exchange last night :
daughter " "Grey's Anatomy exists in this universe but nobody recognized Jesse Williams from the show?"
me : "It exists in our universe and I didn't know who he was".
I did recognize him from the video game Detroit Become Human though.

Underwhelming season so far, IMO. The whole white room thing wasn't funny. I guess the team isn't actually doing a pod this time?

I like the energy Rudd and Streep have brought. But neither were in the last episode and it felt weaker without them. Don't find Andrea Martin funny ever so I'm bummed she's got a recurring part now (Making it 3 Martins in the cast!).
I did laugh when Steve Martin did his Gilbert & Sullivan type song while miming making an omelet.

I thought the first three episodes were borderline terrible. Everything felt off and it just wasn't funny. Thankfully the fourth episode got it back on track for me. Save for the white room thing. Streep is a nice addition to the series. And she knocked it out of the park with that song.

I'm pretty sure
Spoiler:
it was cookies. There was no one in the room with Rudd when the video showed him saying "you shouldn't be here, you're too sweet" - he had a plate of cookies and talked himself into eating them. They made him pass out for some reason on stage/

I saw Pasek and Paul listed in the credits and figured songs would be happening at some point. They wrote the nanny’s lullaby with Sara Bareilles, which seems like a lot of talent for one (lovely) song.

I loved this week's episode. Streep is perfect in this role.

So is Ben Loretta's son? I am thinking that is what all the clippings are about.

I'm thinking the same thing. And I bet the horrible thing she did once was give him up as a baby to pursue her acting career, only to find out he became the star she longed to be.

Thereís speculation that the brother is her son, not Ben. Heís supposedly also in all the clippings too.
