I hope she uses her inevitable "mutually agreed upon rest period for reflection and development" and "welcome time to focus on my personal life" to find a clue.
Just rewatched the Brown episode and my god are he, Samberg, and Braugher all fantastic in it. I’m shocked Brown didn’t win the Guest Star Emmy, though at least he was nominated.
Not a great night for management on NBC sitcoms between Holt’s uncharacteristic cluelessness and and Amy’s complete failure to control the Carol situation over on Superstore. Though the soap opera recap interrogation was hilarious.

There were some decent standalone gags (the sound effects CD was very classic… Read more
I can't use the line because it's too much of a spoiler but his delivery of it in You're Next made me laugh so, so hard. Just a perfect encapsulation of whiny entitlement.
