Another great episode. Maybe Mark Hamill can be nominated as Guest Actor?May 15, 2020 at 7:03 pm #1203484245
I found this to be the weakest of season so far. Mark Hamill was great. Best part was that toothpick was the disguiseMay 21, 2020 at 1:01 pm #1203493932
I am concerned that they will submit two episodes this year instead of one. Last year, they only submitted the finale, which was written by creator Jemaine Clement, showrunner Paul Simms and executive producer Stefani Robinson (coming off an individual nomination for Atlanta). This year, Simms and Robinson wrote the finale with new co-executive producer Sam Johnson. Clement’s only writing credit is a May episode titled “The Return”, which he also directed.
FX actually credits Clement on the finale, which differs from what has been on the WGA website. The FYC site only lists one writing submission, so it looks like they will just be going with the finale again and I will not have to worry about vote-splitting.May 22, 2020 at 2:25 pm #1203495966
What We Do in the Shadows’ Renewed for Season 3 at FX.
“The news comes as the series is still in the midst of its second season, with the season finale set to air on June 10. Per FX, the series is averaging 3.2 million viewers per episode across all platforms in its second season, up 25% over Season 1.” Source: VarietyMay 25, 2020 at 5:21 pm #1203500538
The FYC website now specifies this week’s episode “Collaboration” by Sam Johnson and Chris Marcii as their writing submission. It must really be a good one, seeing as they forewent entering any of the executive producers.May 31, 2020 at 10:43 pm #1203511087
“On the Run” was the weakest episode of the season but had nice moments. “The Return” was great, lot of funny moments. I don’t know if “Collaboration” deserves to be the writting submission but it was very funny too. Lazlo was my least favorite character but he is killing it this season, Nadia still amazing as always.June 2, 2020 at 10:45 pm #1203513832
I need to say that the end credits songs is in my head since I watched the episode. “In this townnn”.June 8, 2020 at 3:09 pm #1203522428
The saga continues. FX has made several updates to their campaign website and they now list “Ghosts” and “On the Run” as additional writing submissions, so they can kiss their nomination goodbye! Well, maybe they get in with the unlimited ballot, but still, if you have not been nominated before, just submit one! “On the Run” has the best ratings of the three on IMDb, but will voters be able to differentiate it on the ballot? And does it matter if it is more acclaimed if it is not even the most acclaimed of the season?June 8, 2020 at 3:41 pm #1203522493
It is really disappointing that they are not going to submit “Colin Robinson’s Promotion”, which as far as I have seen among critics, fans and social media, was the most acclaimed episode of the season.June 8, 2020 at 6:04 pm #1203522680
“On the Run” is one of the best comedy episodes of the season and a favorite of both everyone I know who watches the show and all the critics whom I follow. I can see it being nominated despite multiple submissions if the writers actually watch the show, in the similar vain of how Better Call Saul got “Five-O” and “Chicanery” nominated since writers new they were season standouts despite Better Call Saul submitting more than 5 episodes for writing both of those yearsJune 8, 2020 at 6:19 pm #1203522691
I still love “the curse” the best of the seasonJune 8, 2020 at 6:47 pm #1203522714
I enjoyed “The Witches”, it was a great episode and this show just have one of the best group of characters ever. So precious.June 10, 2020 at 8:20 am #1203525486
This show is the funniest on TV. I don’t think anything else has come close this year, maybe the Kimmy Schmidt movie. Each episode is funnier than the last, I didn’t think “Collaboration” could be topped, but “Witches” pulled it off.
Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, SurvivorJune 11, 2020 at 4:26 pm #1203528749
The finale was the perfect culmination of the show thus far with an impressive visual style that made this episode feel like a real turning point for the series. This ensemble is so fucking good, but it is hard to pick out a favorite cast member. How are they submitted at the Emmys? They all feel like supporting, but I feel like I could see an excuse to be made more Kayvan Novak or Matt Berry going lead. Not that it matters, since I don’t think this will make an impact in any races outside of Writing, but it is really deserving of across the board love. I’m excited to go back and rewatch these episodes to pick up on the smallest rewarding moments.
