It is definitely painful at times.

Painful in different ways. 'Nobody really talks like that' vs. 'Oh my God, that's so real.'

I don't think I've ever eaten anything in a bathtub or have any interest in doing so, yet I had no problem believing that somewhere on the planet this could be happening, from cupcakes to caviar to....well, here you go:

But no, I doubt "last night when I was eating my cupcake in the bath" is something someone is going to drop into conversation the next day. People do all kinds of weird/sad shit and when I saw that scene it seemed entirely plausible to me.

I haven't seen episodes 4&5 yet but I'm just curious if they're better than 2&3.

The fifth episode was actually not terrible because it was more focused on the news itself. Probably the best one since the pilot.

The fourth was an absolute piece of shit.

The only way that Will can be wrong is to insult a gay black man. Somehow, this is still progress.

So the latest revelations about the women's stupidity include Maggie confusing the state of Georgia with the country Georgia, MacKenzie counting on her fingers, and Sloan going rogue on air. Firing the writers: good move.

Maggie is insufferable. I cannot believe the levels of idiocy and stupidity. Plus it is a great example of what Hollywood writers think is a funny way of portraying adult women - as completely and utterly neurotic.

Otherwise I enjoyed the last episode. The scenes with the shrink were a bit too reminiscent of Josh on TWW but otherwise the story was interesting.

I really like the therapy storyline. Fortunately Will is my favorite character, along with Jim, so I can put up with the rest.

Overall, I'm enjoying the show despite my ongoing complaints.
