Ava verbally being surprised Jacob’s boyfriend is black and then the boyfriend turning around and saying “it’s pronounced Zack” – I fell off my chair.
Him immediately following it up with “You must be Ava” took me out.
Jacob’s been telling him all of the workplace shenanigans.ReplyCopy URL

“Desking” felt like one of those pivotal episodes where a very promising first-year show makes the leap to great.ReplyCopy URLApril 6, 2022 at 6:30 am #1204906105
Another fun episode. Janelle James is amazing!ReplyCopy URLApril 7, 2022 at 10:01 pm #1204908292
Just watched the first two episodes. Quinta Brunson is the TRUTH! What a serve for the flailing state of network television! Janelle James steals every single scene she in, so I need her Emmy-nominated like today. Such a lively ensemble and a premise that can be easily sustained for so many seasons (smart move there, Miss Q!). Hopefully the writing maintains at this high level for the rest of the season. Excited to see more!ReplyCopy URLApril 7, 2022 at 10:02 pm #1204908294

Not only does it maintain, it gets even stronger.ReplyCopy URL

I have such respect for Brunson with this show because I think she’s used the obvious network TV guidelines, and boundaries (commercial breaks, budget, format) in a way where they work to her advantage. Traditional doesn’t have to mean bad.ReplyCopy URL

Tonight is the season finale. It did get picked up for a second season (crossing my fingers it’s for a whole season).ReplyCopy URLApril 13, 2022 at 2:04 am #1204915212
Did anyone else cry during the finale?ReplyCopy URL

This show is AMAZING! I’m already excited for season 2. I really hope this show gets some Emmy love.ReplyCopy URLApril 13, 2022 at 11:17 am #1204915699
Through “Desking” currently. The smart Emmy move is to submit the pilot for everything, but this episode, wow! It encapsulates everything this season’s been building up to in such a clever, writerly manner that should at least be submitted for writing. I think it’s strong enough to get in on its own and not take votes away from the pilot. The network bias is all that’s really holding it back. Hope that’s not a thing this year!ReplyCopy URL

Abbott Elementary Is the New Model for Network-Sitcom Success
Quinta Brunson’s breakout ABC series might change the way we watch TV comedies.
Article might be paywalled, but the moral of the story is, this show is a HIT in every sense of the word, particularly for our fragmented, delayed-viewing era.ReplyCopy URL

I love how joke dense this show, saw this compilation circulating and missed a few on first viewing
