    I’m two episodes in (trying not to gorge) and so far it’s hit and miss. “Strike Up the Band” felt padded–I think we could have trimmed ten minutes or so, including some of the other acts at the USO show. “It’s the Sixties, Man!” was a middling effort, mainly because I just wasn’t buying Abe with a houseful of beatniks.

    Highlights include Jane Lynch’s first scene on the phone with Susie (“The last time I had to track someone down, it was to tell Desi Arnaz he gave me the clap”), Rose’s tantrum at the meeting of the family trust board, the bundle of energy that is Stephanie Hsu, Sterling K. Brown and Alex Borstein going toe-to-toe, and the ever-wondrous production values.

    Looking forward to the tour actually kicking off.

    If Emmy voters continue to go big for this show I wouldn’t be surprised to see Leroy McClain show up in supporting (Shy Baldwin). He has some pretty big showcases, especially towards the end of the season and, in a sense, the entire season is built around him and his narrative.

    I was pretty surprised how little SKB factored into the season overall. I don’t know that he is strong enough to make the supporting actor lineup but would have been a decent guest nomination if his episode count were lower.

    Critics definitely seem to have cooled on the show overall but I don’t expect that really to impact its Emmy prospects much. Comedy, in particular, is not very crowded (at least doesn’t appear to me at this stage)

    Watched two episodes. A good start, but a big let down from season 2 terrific firsts episodes. But everything still so beautiful.

    Just finished! Assorted thoughts:

    Really great season! Not as good as season two, but I think I liked it just a tad more than season one.

    I’d hate to break Fleabag’s momentum, but this should absolutely take SAG Ensemble. Everyone in the cast is just pitch-perfect.

    Stephanie Hsu was a FANTASTIC addition to this cast. She complemented the tone flawlessly, and she was just so much damn fun. I really wish she was in it more and that season four utilizes her more. I don’t think she stands a chance in supporting actress with Borstein, Hinkle, and Lynch all above her, but I’d love to see her nominated.

    I liked Hinkle in the first two seasons but never saw her as a standout, but I LOVED her this season. Her argument with Brosnahan at the end of the season was for sure a highlight, and she really shone there.

    “It’s Comedy or Cabbage” and “Kind of Bleu” were my favorite episodes of the season.

    Borstein NEVER fails to crack me up. She also had some really amazing emotional vulnerability this time around, and while I’d love to see someone new win supporting actress, I also would not be mad if she took Emmy three for this.

    Brown, Elwes, and Weil ALL missed guest eligibility? What a disappointment, they would have all been amazing nominees, but none had strong enough performances to justify a supporting nod in my opinion. I really liked them, though.

    Bringing the episode count down to eight was a great choice. Some episodes could have been tightened (one of the very few situations where I think a network 40-minute limit could have been helpful), but this season felt more concretely linear than last year’s.

    Levi was absolutely wonderful. I loved his deli scene. Supporting performers have also had lots of luck moving down to guest, so I think he’s a safe bet for a nod.

    Caroline Aaron is the unsung highlight of this show. I ALWAYS laugh every single time she’s on screen.

    It’s obvious the CGI budget was expanded for this season, but I don’t think it should have been. It was used too often and looked too cheap when it was used that I don’t think it was necessary.

    I didn’t love Abe’s storyline this time around, but his scenes with Jason Alexander were very good.

    Leroy McClain was REALLY good. I wish there had been more scenes with him and that we’d seen more of his character’s thoughts and motivations (especially within the gay storyline), but he’d be a stronger guest nominee than Brown or Elwes.

    I originally really disliked Joel (the character, not the actor) in season one, but he’s grown on me so much. Seeing him genuinely friends with Midge is so nice and goes against expectations in the best way.

    Jane Lynch was great. Not sure she should’ve been upped to series regular, but she was fun enough that I’m not complaining. I just don’t really love her performance in this show if I’m being honest.

    The rapid-fire in this is just so damn great. I’ll be thinking about some of those exchanges and mini-monologues for months to come.

    Zelda is absolutely hilarious. What an underrated character. Her scenes in the Maisels’ home were some of my favorite (especially her working for them during her break).

    If I were an Emmy voter, this is what I’d throw my nods to:

    Series
    Directing – “Hands!” (Daniel Palladino)
    Directing – “It’s Comedy or Cabbage” (Amy Sherman-Palladino)
    Writing – “It’s Comedy or Cabbage” (Amy Sherman-Palladino)
    Writing – “Marvelous Radio” (Daniel Palladino)
    Lead Actress – Brosnahan
    Supp Actress – Aaron
    Supp Actress – Borstein
    Supp Actress – Hinkle
    Supp Actress – Hsu
    Supp Actor – McClain
    Supp Actor – Shalhoub
    Guest Actor – Kirby
    Guest Actor – Levi

    Okay, so this season was actually great, for the most part. After a meh beggining, there was a amazing sequence of episodes and all the cast delivered wonderful perfomances (maybe not Lynch). I think is the best season for Borstein and Brosnahan was terrific as always. Kirby deserve to repeat a nomination and maybe even a win. There was some problems like the critics said, specially some supporting cast plot, but the tour was an vivid and amazing addition for the serie. It really is a delicious binge watch.

    What do people think could be episode submissions for series, acting, writing and directing?

    I assume they are going to push It’s Comedy or Cabbage in the major categories. That’s the one written by ASP and seems to have gotten the majority of stand out notices. Plus it has newly minted Emmy winner Luke Kirby.

    Somewhat mixed on this season. It ended on a high note with season-best and possible series-best performances from Brosnahan, Hinkle, Borstein, Brown, and Levi, but during the middle I was kinda wondering “what’s gonna come of this season?” It didn’t seem as urgent as the last two, besides the final episode. And I’m pretty sick of the show’s schtick of flashing impressive production design via one shot takes, usually ones that follow Brosnahan walking around in doe eyed bewilderment. Also I hate the in-laws, all of those scenes were just annoying.

    Also, SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER (was it alluded to that Brown’s character was getting with Shy?) SPOILER OVER

    Stop being so petty. You have the right to criticize when you actually watch the show.
