Really enjoy the show, and they've managed to add so much depth to the characters that even after only half a season they feel fully rounded.

Enlisted does a similar thing, though it's more Stripes than anything else.  People who haven't seen that really should, as it's great.

They need to show the good parts during the commercials then. I have laughed once and rolled my eyes A LOT.

This is probably the first ep in a while that didn't grab me as hard. The Vulture seems a bit one-note to me. The Adam Sandler cameo was, however, surprisingly funny. "What part does Kevin James play?"

I think I dislike Samberg besides Lonely Island because I liked the show and all the other characters but he just grates on me.

Andy Samberg is best when he's tempered by another cast member, rather than taking over the whole show.  The recent episode used him well, having all of the cast have basically the same amount of screen time.  The only cast member I'm not totally on board with is Gina - she's too cartoonish and without a whole lot of depth.  They've done great work to round out the other members, but she's really only a wacky one-liner machine.

I think Gina is one of the stronger females on the show. Also, she has more depth than Rosa (and she is cooler, funnier, and stronger (at least in her ability to not care about anything) than Rosa.

My example of depth for Gina is from the episode when her house got broken into. She was vulnerable, but in her own adorable way.


I want to be more like Gina in my real life. Actually....take Amy's professionalism and adoration for a father figure, Rosa's desire to beat the shit out of everyone, and Gina's one-liners and self confidence....and you have a woman I would aspire to be.


I watch this show too much.

Something about Rosa's evilly delighted laugh cracks me up. I was losing it watching her react to Gina (who I also found more tolerable than usual in this episode). "Wine Drink" also killed me. Also I don't know why, but the Hitchcock's Shirt running gag is nowhere near getting old for me. So funny! Boyle's umami tryst I'm still trying to choose a reaction to.

I'm definitely in the Anti-Gina camp.  Granted her character is supposed to be irritating, but still not a fan of Peretti in anything I've seen her in.

I actually really enjoy Rosa's character, but mainly when it's not overdone.

Overall I really enjoy the show far more than I expected to based on the commercials before the show started.

They've done some really nice work in fleshing out Rosa, so she's not as one-dimensional as Gina is.  Gina can be funny, but she's a one-liner machine, not a character.  I think they've under-served her because Chelsea Perretti is naturally funny.
