The philosophy humor/themes is great, best thing on the show after Danson and Janet.

That first half was on lock. Well done. Mr Robot and this are the only TV recs I am tossing out right now.

My Power Rankings (not very fair because there are so few cast members and they are all very good):

5. Field - People I don't like are Derek and Fake Elanor, everyone else is awesome.
4. Michael - I'm enjoying Sam Malone figuring out what ethics is.
3. Jianyu - Its the physical comedy right? No. Its how genuine he is. I mean he's wearing a top hat and a Jags jersey at his wedding and you feel bad when its broken up.
2. Chidi - Took them awhile but they finally made the absurdity of his bit work. It might be him copping to how horrible he was in real life.
1. Janet - Tour de force.
0. The Writers.

But even with Derek, they timed it right. They knew it would be painful to drag out, and they played out the whole joke from start to finish in barely over an episode. I thought it worked. They know when to spend time on the gag and when to fast forward. Sometimes the fast forward is a huge part of the gag, as in Chapter 16.

I think Michael is #2 this season, just a hair behind Janet. No weak links.

You could put all the regulars in a hat and pick names for rankings. This show is great.

Every few weeks I catch part of this show and say "I should really watch this every week." Then I never remember to do so. Wolfette watches it regularly and commented the other day that I laugh at it more than she does, despite not really knowing who anyone is or anything. I'm not sure what my point is.
