    The ending sure caught me by surprise. I never thought I'd be going 'Awww, Bevers'!

    I am so happy to see this!

    TDS 3.0: Season Four Talk

    I was delighted that Trevor still had the earrings on when he did the Moment of Zen. I googled, and discovered that Jacob uses singular 'they' pronouns.

  6. Did anyone else see Trevor's bit on the Oscars? They made full use of his talent for accents! ETA: This article: Trevor Noah's inspirational quote at the Oscars was actually superb trolling. Hee!

    Apparently on Twitter someone said he was both Scarlett O’Hara asking what should she do and where should she go, AND Rhett Butler saying he didn’t give a damn. Superb.

    Agreed. He's starting to occupy a really good place in the show's ecosystem.

    Funny you should mention that. Similar but not quite: ‘Drag Race’ Star Manila Luzon Says She Wasn’t Allowed To Wear This Period Dress On The Runway.

    Great to see Clea DuVall as Lesley, the doctor who treated Abbi in hospital. I'm so glad that Abbi asked her out! The negotiations between Ilana and Lincoln were hilarious and heartbreaking. I love Ilana's self-awareness, knowing that she is meant to be 'a polyamorous goddess', and that Lincoln respects that. Was that a real NYC restaurant that Ilana and Lincoln were at? If it was a parody of a real restaurant, which one?

    S08.E06: Episode 6

    I wish they would give us a Valerie-centric episode. I love her and am dying to know more about her background. At the moment she's just the peppy, attractive, East End girl-made-good. Tell me what makes her tick, please!

    S06.E01: Aftermath of Brexit

    We have a version in Australia too. IMO it's one of the best shows on TV.

    S06.E01: Aftermath of Brexit

    No no no no no. New Zealand has given the world many wonderful things, but I must claim Crowded House for Australia (where I live). Two out of the three main members of Crowded House were Australian, and they wrote their most successful songs in Australia. I laughed loud and long at Ollie's line chiding mapmakers for leaving NZ off their maps as if it were 'Australia's imaginary friend'. Bwah! The thing is, for many years here in Australia we kind of thought of NZ as our little brother/sister and made lots of sheep jokes about it. These days, many of us wish we could be NZ, with its excellent prime minister, its treaty with its Indigenous people, and its kindness towards asylum seekers. We haven't had any of those things for a long time, and it's depressing.

    I love so much the way Ilana and Abbi support each other. Friendship goals!
