    This was terrific. Consistently hilarious with an ending that was quietly moving. I hope the Emmy’s take notice and don’t just flood the supporting actress category with SNL, Ted Lasso, and The Flight Attendant performances. A couple of the songs should be in play too, as well as the writing.

    They could stretch this out 4+ seasons and I’d happily watch every single one of them.

    Very good first episode. You can tell it’s a pilot by some of the performances, but it was a lot of fun. Goldsberry was amazing here, Bareilles ended up a good actress? Pell is great as always and her casting gag is excellent.

    I had several issues with Phillips’ performance, I think she’s overacting for the most part, trying to create a non-Busy Phillips character, but it’s just same ol’ Busy trying too hard at times. Hopefully she gets better as it goes along, same thing happened in Cougar Town but she made it work, so there’s hope.

    I needed this type of show again.

    I finished this yesterday and it was a total riot! Loved it. Golsberry was the MVP followed by Pell. I’d say this is even better than 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The type of humor they use here is the same as these shows had, but in Girls5eva is less silly, which I prefer.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I really enjoyed the pilot! Definitely a little clunky but it had so much to set up and it did so in such an enjoyable and fun way that I’ll definitely give it a pass. For some reason I thought the rest of the season was free with ads, so it might be a little while until I can finish it out, but I’m definitely motivated to now! A really great time.

    Just finished this. Overall it was fun, but it wasn’t really wowed by it. It has elements that work great (the songs’ lyrics are hilarious for example) and others not so much (like Dawn family in general, especially her brother). It also really looks like a NBC show, which I guess makes sense considering Peacock is an extension of it, but it could literally air on NBC as it is. But it’s not a bad thing either considering they mostly make good comedies and that are appreciated by awards.

    My MVP was Renée Elise Goldsberry, she was pretty funny and her character was the most interesting to me. On the other hand, I sadly had some issues with Busy Phillips. She plays the typical dumb and clueless character that has already been done multiple times before and better. Just recently we had Annie Murphy’s emmy winning turn that did it way better.

    I think it’s the type of show that can improve as it progresses so I’m definitely anticipating season 2. I hope it will have a nice showing at Emmys because it’s still one of the best offerings in the category this year. I would personally nominate it in Series and Renée.

    Girls5Eva was the best surprise of this season. I really thought it would be a mess.

    IMO Bareilles is clearly the lead and the everyone else is supporting, however I think it would be ok if all the girls are submitted in lead or supporting.

    I’m also in love with Paula Pell. She had an amazing year so far with A.P. Bio and Girls5Eva. Hopefully she’ll get some love from the Emmy voters.

    I hinged this all in one night and absolutely loved it. Tina Fey is hit and miss these days so glad to see she can still produce good work. All the 4 ladies were great, Renee and Paula were my MVPs. Tina Fey was hilarious as Dolly Parton, so random but it worked. The original song was amazing and should win Music and Lyrics. I loved the theme song as well. I would nominate the show in series, Renee, Paula, Busy and Tina (Sara was good, but not on par with the other women).

    Just finished this and I enjoyed the heck out of it. I love the weird touches that were also present in 30 Rock, Kimmy, and Mr. Mayor. I thought all the ladies were great but awards wise, I would single out Goldsberry and Pell. I would love to see Vanessa L. Williams get a guest nod as well (although Fey’s Dolly was inspired). It better get some music love too!

    To continue the trend of magnificent performances winning in Lead Actress, Renée HAS TO WIN THIS AWARD!

    Which category, lead or supporting? A case could truly be made for either one.

    Pls that John Slattery cameo was so random I fell off my chair.

    I like how the show amalgamates the styles of both 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt yet it feels sort of tranquil at times in a way?

    Finally watching this. Crown Goldsberry purely for the scene where she drags herself up a ramp then gets stuck on an escalator.

    The first three episodes were really good. Genuinely funny! The episodes are really short, the voters can easily catch up with the season in one sitting.
