Nice that Michael Fishman is still included but seriously his handling of the few lines he is given always sees them landing with a thud.
DJ and his family serve no purpose and could be relegated to a few guest shots.
What happened to Mark's gender fluid clothing choices? That aspect has been completely dropped.
Not sure what the point of the live episode was? They've done it before and better. The phone calls were weak and the 'in joke' references dropped in (Darlene running to another set) didn't work for me.
Looking forward to a return to the usual format next week.
Nah, the show makes it pretty clear in every episode that Esme is shady and nuts. They didn't have her call Kiki "Lauren" for no reason. Not sure if her connection is to Ryan or to Ava, but she definitely seems more invested in torturing Ava than Spencer does.
