Despite a few strong points, this was a pretty underwhelming episode. I quite like the direction that some of the character arcs are going in, this episode tried to do too much, instead of focussing on a specific plot point, so much to the point that you don’t really care at some points. While it didn’t quite deliver on the promise of last week’s episode, it’s still early in the season, and if it leads to a decent end point like previous seasons have done, I’ll be satisfied. Though I must say, this season is already looking better than season 3, which is very promising.May 8, 2017 at 4:49 pm #1202087595
Great showcase of physical comedy by Middleditch. Also that look on his face when Zach Woods went crazy screaming in the garage was brilliant acting. I would love to see him take down Tambor.May 9, 2017 at 9:18 am #1202088222
Another great episode. This show is on fire so far which is a great turn from such a weak season last year. This should be THE show HBO pushes for the Comedy Series Emmy victory, especially with ‘Veep’ having arguably its weakest season of its run.
Middleditch was so damn good and I really hope Zach Woods can finally make it into the supporting race. Please.May 9, 2017 at 9:37 am #1202088244
I don’t understand what was wrong with last season. I thought the show had been getting better every year until it took a dive this season. Also, Veep is still on top of its game, this season is still far better than the earliest episodes of Veep.May 13, 2017 at 4:35 pm #1202092127

I have seen the next three episodes. This week’s is the funniest of the set, but this season is very much on track to be the weakest yet. And how many times do we need to see these guys end up where they started? This season also has a weird thing for dropping storylines suddenly.
Next week is Thomas Middleditch’s best tape of the season, but it does not compare to the tapes that he got last season. Submitted guest Haley Joel Osment finally pops up briefly in the sixth episode. Not sure why they upgraded Stephen Tobolowsky for this season because he is not around.May 14, 2017 at 12:30 pm #1202092710
This season has been very underwhelming, I know a lot of people didn’t like season 3, I thought seasons 1-3 were all equally excellent. This year though has been a big step down for me.May 14, 2017 at 8:16 pm #1202093072
Too brief to judge. You might not notice him behind that massive beard.May 14, 2017 at 8:42 pm #1202093084
More shocking was the beard because I feel like I saw him recently on The Spoils of Babylon, in which he was very funny.
So, how about Jian-Yang tonight?May 14, 2017 at 9:18 pm #1202093101
“I’ll kill them with knives, I’ll kill them with guns, I’ll kill them with my hands, I’ll talk them into suicide. It doesn’t matter”. Omg give him a friggin Emmy. I think he could get nominated since he’s so good.
honestly though, I also think Jian-Yang would also be a great nominee. He would never happen though.
I wonder if Matt Ross could be assisted by directing Captain Fantastic and get a suprise nomination. I’m trying to find out who could be this years Matt Walsh, and he fits the bill.May 15, 2017 at 9:23 am #1202093617
An OK episode this week. The plotline is coming along nicely, but as an expense is losing some of its best humour. Zach Woods was really good this week- by far the most deserving of a nomination of the supporting cast, while Middleditch is also making a strong argument to be a threat in Comedy Actor. I think the show is lacking a bit in taking risks, it needs to find more different situations for the characters to be in, which was more the case in seasons 1 and 2. By no means terrible, but improvements can be made.May 15, 2017 at 11:41 pm #1202094161
This show continues to make up for it’s weakest season last year. Seeing the dynamic of the group falling and regrouping has been great, especially because it’s given Zach Woods his best material since the first season.
If this keeps up, it’ll be a strong contender to take the Comedy Series crown, especially since ‘Veep’ has imploded this season.May 20, 2017 at 10:56 pm #1202098221
