    Without getting too far into a rabbit hole, I think what Jennifer is trying to show with their manifesto is that it's not necessarily about equality, it's about equity. This poster used to hang in my grade school as a kid, and it's stuck in my head to this day. And I think they have done a fairly good job so far showing that women can be pretty nasty to each other - just look at how Kitty treats Plum with disdain. And while Plum now surrounds herself with women who are trying to lift her up, from the few friends she had at the beginning, they were all male and non-threatening, and I think that's intentional. One small moment I really enjoyed in this episode was that when Plum was getting waxed, she was absolutely certain that the aestheticians were talking about her and her size, when really they were just chatting about their relationships. That is something a lot of people (of any size) do frequently - decide on a narrative, and make everything possible they see fit that, even if it's not the case. Plum is so used to people being shitty to her that she assumes everyone is. It also took me until this episode to realize the woman playing Plum's mom is from the movie Center Stage. And I see Marti Noxon is doing Marc Blucas a solid and still getting him work after Buffy.

    I’m surprised they didn’t submit Sterling either, but I bet he’s submitting his guest spot in Brooklyn Nine Nine instead (which was a stronger comedy role). Submitting Saorise over Tiffany Haddish is legit baffling to me. Very strange choice.

  7. S43.E20: Amy Schumer / Kacey Musgraves

    I like Amy well enough, but oooof, I thought this episode was pretty bad. I think this is destined to be one of those episodes that is completely forgotten about, especially because it's going to be sandwiched in between Donald Glovers great episode and what will be Tina Fey's fantastic episode (she's never hosted a dud IMO). I liked Lil Rent, and for whatever reason, Kyle's mom in the cold open delighted me. She seems like a character.
  8. S43.E19: Donald Glover / Childish Gambino

    Apparently, Cecily has been waiting to do the sketch for awhile and just needed a host who knew what she was referring to Also looks like Chris Redd was responsible for the Friendos sketch
  9. S43.E19: Donald Glover / Childish Gambino

    My god, is there anything Donald Glover can’t do? I thought it was going to be hard to top the Mulaney episode so soon, but Donald Glover was (unsurprisingly) fantastic. And I need those Childish Gambino songs ASAP; Saturday was a jam. There’s already a “Cut for Time” sketch on the SNL app, which I also found funny. Not sure if it’s on their YouTube channel yet, but if it is, I’ll add the link. Eta - found it

    Looks like Aidy got married this weekend! She looks gorgeous

    I saw this story pop up this morning on Lindy West's instagram - Aidy is set to star in the adaptation of Shrill for Hulu. Ecstatic for Aidy, but I bet this means Aidy leaves at the end of the season

    Last two shows of the year announced - May 12 is Amy Schumer/Kacey Musgraves, and the finale is Tina Fey/Nicki Minaj
  13. S43.E18: John Mulaney / Jack White

    I don’t either - he posted on his Instagram the pics of him cracking up twice in the same spot and he said “Kenan always gets me.” So I don’t have any trouble thinking that Kenan coming out as a lobster and singing cracked him up twice.
  14. S43.E18: John Mulaney / Jack White

    According to his twitter, Lobster Les Miz was something he and Colin Jost wrote in 2010 and it got cut, and Switcheroo was something he wrote in 2009 that was also cut. I’m glad they brought both of them back; they were hysterical. John Mulaney killed it. I know it helps to be a former writer (and a prolific one) , so you already know the format, but he was exceptionally good. Hopefully this introduces him to people who haven’t heard of him.

    I feel like the only flash we got of how the judges truly felt was when they were initially walking around, and Nunez and Ollie both agreed Rolly was the worst. And you could see the realization that producers clearly said they needed one person from each team to stick around when Ollie said "Team Steve could end up with no one" and Nunez just paused, didn't really say anything, but had an "Oh fuck, we can't do that" look on his face. Just the fact that there were no votes for Rolly to go home was bonkers. I also felt like they didn't really want to say it, but Deanna's portrait looked more like the picture than they wanted to admit. Because I'm sure that woman is lovely, but when they were showing the side-by-side, she did have slightly buck teeth and a wonky eye. Which is fine, but they shouldn't act like Deanna butchered the photo. Josh's portrait might go down as one of the best I've ever seen on the show. It really looked like Ollie and might slightly edge out the Dave portrait Jime did back in season 3. I would never have expected to say this at the beginning of the season, but he is really growing on me. I think he and Deanna's friendship is sweet and seems quite genuine.
