Kind of a “meh” episode to kick off a new season. Wouldn’t they want something more solid to capture new viewers, or is the general stability worth more to the network?
Here’s another show I ought to cut out of my rotation, but somehow can’t because the completist in me can’t quit. Maybe I should wait to binge it once the show finishes?

Spoilers coming for season finale:
This show seems to be slipping more and more. The A plot was alright, but they sweated out the “solution” for far too long and second guessed themselves beyond what was believable. Then proposal reveal at the end was a bit of a letdown after such a long build up. Why not propose on screen and make it more interesting? The “set another seat at the table piece” and the dry run at the “vows” made up for things a bit better, but I wonder if this couldn’t have been done with even more emotional impact somehow?
