Idk about anyone else but this was my second favorite comedy of the 2016-2017 season. This show just really speaks to me and is poignant and hilarious. Bill Rothman gives an amazing performance and is my personal winner for this year. I would’ve even predicted him (though I would’ve been wrong) to be nominated this year since his performance is so similar to Louie Anderson’s. One mississippi like Baskets is also executivly produced by Louis CK!
Anyway I’m so excited for this to air (so soon!!). It won’t receive any awards attention.

Two amazing reviews. From the reviews, looks like the new season will have an overall lighter and happier tone. Not sure how I feel about that bc most of the first season’s power came from how the characters’ grief unknowingly affected them, but I’m sure the essence of the show will still feel the same.
I urge everyone to watch this show. The first season only has so 25 min episodes and they are quick and amazing watch. John Rothman is giving one of the best and nuanced performances on television.
Jeez this and bojack are both coming out tomorrow. Which do I watch first?September 10, 2017 at 3:46 pm #1202209178
Wow.. I just finished and the last episode was so powerful. There’s a scene in the season finale with Tig and Bill on the front porch that I will put among the best dramatic scenes of any drama series you’ll see all year. But One Mississippi never forgot to be heartwarming and funny.
Less is certainly more with only six episodes but the second episode and final two are certainly the standouts. I would nominate episode two “Into the Light” for directing and episode six “I’m Alive” for writing.
As for the actors, John Rothman found new depths with Bill this year and should submit the finale if nominated (he won’t tho of course) and Tig Notaro can either submit episode two or the finale if nominated (she won’t of course). I would even support a supporting actress nomination for Stephanie Allynne due to her work in episode 5. Tig and Stephanie are married in real life and that chemistry shows.
It’s a shame that more people won’t watch this show, the Emmys will ignore it too, and that I won’t even be able to vote for John Rothman to be nominated at the goldderby awards next year. At the very least I have early frontrunners for my personal winners for lead actress,supporting actor, and comedy series.
