one of them said something like "ARE ALL TAYLOR SWIFT SONGS REALLY MARXIST?" and another was like "WHY DRINKING MILK ON THE TOILET MIGHT BE A TOTAL GAME-CHANGER" and there were two or three others i couldn't fully make out, but i totally lost track of the scene's dialogue as i was cracking up trying to read them :lol:

Damn. Imma need to rewatch this.

this episode was probably the best yet. i could watch jeremy strong swallow his sadness and become a dead-eyed soldier for his dad all day long.

there's always some small throwaway line or moment that becomes my favorite part of the episode

ep 1 had sick puppy, this episode I loved roman's exasperated disbelief at "he's...actually..drinking the smoothie...."

kieran culkin is so good at this, the show wouldn't work without him

yeah im also a fan of how kieran went from seeming super cocky in s1 to having a lot more weaknesses this time but he still managing to play the character as if he's doesn't totally see himself that way/clearly? did that even make sense?

lol, i need to stop posting before i've had coffee.

There was a scene in the last ep where shiv and Tom are standing at kieren’s apartment with his gf and he looks so short compared to everyone I wonder if he sits on things to make up for his small stature. But then also as a character I love the idea that he is a short dude but it doesn’t impact how he thinks of himself. Idk I’m not good at words.

phone call with gerri when he asks her if she'll just come over to vaulter and then she makes him self conscious and he tells her fuck you and hangs up. i love gerri's delayed fuck you looking at her phone, really drives home how in-the-same-boat a lot of the characters are at this point.

I heard somewhere that there's more Gerri this season, which rules. I would be happy to learn more about the other background execs (Karolina, Karl).

yeah they managed to build a sense of some kind of dense gaming from every direction really well without resorting to just making it too quippy. The pacing is really well navigated.
