    Anyone watching this?
    Much better than I thought it would be. :)
    I really like the grandmother.

    Watching! I, too, really like the grandmother. She's hilarious and so cute I can hardly stand it.

    I really like Awkwafina also.

    Of course I'm watching one of the two best sitcoms currently airing on TV. In fact, in no particular order I watch both of them. I recently anointed Awkwafina the Carol Burnett of her generation. This show was renewed for season two before it even premiered and the cast is great. White Rose? Hugo Strange? Are you kidding me? Lori Tan Chinn is making a late bid to become the Carol Burnett of her generation but she may have already been beaten to the punch by Carol Burnett. But who could forget her in What About Bob?

    I find this show very funny. Awkwafina is hilarious!

    Weird though. I think they aired some midseason show (the queefing episode) first then started from the pilot after that.

    That was presented as a special preview (in a different time slot). I'm not sure it was even correctly labeled with the episode number, so I'm expecting my DVR to record it again.

    As always, I seem to be the dissenting voice, but I didn't like it. It just felt like another of those comedies I might have aged out of, but that I'm supposed to like, because, she's trendy. Granted I only watched one episode, and maybe if I watched more I'd like it more, but I get the feeling I won't.

    Love the show. Awk’s delivery slays me. She can be simultaneously over-the-top and deadpan.

    Competing with her cousin for Grandma's love was hilarious.

    IndieWire isn't calling her one of the favorites for a 2020 Emmy nom for best actress in a comedy series, but they're calling her the #1 spoiler possibility in case any of the favorites get snubbed.

    Only one episode left.
