    I am on episode 8 and I must say I am LOVING this season!

    "Freaky Tuesday" was a lot of fun. Betty Gilpin did a great Zoya!

    Any show with a Passover Seder is ok by me. And it led to a truly touching moment. I teared up a little bit.

    Loved that episode 7 was directed by Alison Brie-great job! Poor Sam-he can't help himself (literally)

    Love "Tex" (aka JJ) - loved him in "Halt and Catch Fire" and he's terrific here too.

    Oh, and I looooooooooooooooooooooooooooove Bash-well, he's a bit of a d*ck, but I love the actor-I am pretty sure I posted this before but I am still salty that

    they killed his character off of "Private Practice!

    So is anyone else watching? Thoughts?

    Whenever I see him all I can think is that he is the Wiz and nobody can beat him.

    O-M-GOSH! Just watched "The Libertines" and WOW!

    When Rhonda and Bash had the "Devil's Triangle" with the male prostitute (don't remember his name) that was sooooooooooooo hot! When Bash FINALLY gave in to his (IMHO) true self and kissed that hot man, I was SCREAMING, "YESSSSS!!!!" I hope he finds his true self-I mean, yes, Rhonda will be hurt, but better to find out now. Yes, I know these aren't real people, but I am invested! :p

    And Bobby Barnes-oh, my heart breaks for him-he puts on this extravagant showcase every year and they raised all that money for AIDS and then some ******* sets the place on fire and paints unspeakable graffiti outside. :mad::mad::mad:

    Just finished the season last night. Very good, really enjoyed it. I didn't like the final scene between Ruth and Debbie. Ruth was kind of a dick. Why would Ruth crap on Debbie's plan and turn down that opportunity? She should have taken the opportunity to get involved in running the station, directing shows, and she still could have tried to get her acting career off the ground. In fact, she could have cast herself in something she was directing. Seemed really shortsighted by a character who is usually pretty smart.

    I was soooo glad when Shiela threw her nasty fur outfit and wig into the fire. That was so disgusting. Plus it was nice to see her character growing and coming out from behind the wall she had built.

    We watched this season over the last week. I enjoyed it since there was more character development and less rasslin’. :)

    Seems like it could be wrapped up as a series or explore the new television station development if they decide to continue.

    I agree that Ruth should have used the TV station/director as an opportunity. Wouldn't it be better for a would be actor to be in LA and on TV then in Vegas or wherever not being seen?

    I think Debbie was the dick though. She crapped on Ruth's dream. She pretty much said you are never going to be an actor so should be thrilled I am giving you a good job. She was already hurt that Sam and Justine didn't give her the role in Justine's movie.

    Debbie was sort of dismissed by Tex when she mentioned being his business partner and he dismissed her. She was pissed and off at him and saw an opportunity to further her career. She was banking on Ruth and Carmen helping her with the TV station/wrestling show. Both decided to follow their dreams. Even though I do agree with you Ruth probably would have been better off doing the director thing in LA while still looking for a 'serious' acting role. Perhaps Carmen will have some guest appearances still and bring some legitimacy to Glow's wresting show.

    Wish there was a touch more wrestling this season but maybe next if there is a next.

    The low point this season was "Outward Bound"; could they have picked a worse location? We've seen Vasquez Rocks in "Star Trek", "Bill & Ted Go To Hell", "The Big Bang Theory" and more others than I can count. It's in California, nobody drives from Vegas to California to go camping unless they're going to Tahoe. Every time they showed the rocks it took me completely out of the show.

    For me, the high point was of course "Desert Pollen". I'm convinced Alison Brie requires a nude scene every season to compensate for being made up old.

    I laughed at all the skeptical mentions of pollen in the desert. It's definitely a thing. Frankly, I'd never heard of anyone complaining about pollen counts until I moved to Arizona when I was 25. Now I hear about it all the time and they always talk about it on the weather reports when the pollen counts are high.

    I'm about 6-7 episodes in (last one I finished was the one where they camped out in the desert). I'm not really enjoying it as much as the other seasons. Just kind of blah stories. But I seem to be in the minority. Was something in their contracts this year where they each had to do a nude scene? Not that I'm complaining but I don't remember nudity in the other seasons.

    Rewatch season 1 for Ruth's first nude scene as she betrays her best friend.

    In fact, it was in the pilot episode, wasn't it?

    Betty Gilpin had a brief nude scene in S2. Pretty sure Kate Nash had previously been nude in S1.

    My memory is not what it once was!!

    Finished it up last night. It was OK, and I enjoyed it, but I don't think it stacked up to the first two seasons. Not sure what was the big deal about the last episode (granted I feel asleep for a few minutes in the middle and woke up with about 10 minutes to go, so maybe it's something there. They were obviously setting up next season (assuming their will be one), and they will always throw some shade on whether some characters will come back or not (for whatever reason, contract issues, or simply story line reasons). Vegas was one and done, and really they played out Vegas at this point.

    Geena Davis has really aged well!!

    I loved the homage to All That Jazz in the scene where Tammé is taking her pills and drinking her wine, Vivaldi's Concert in G playing in the background; then at the end she says "Showtime!"

    Also from some of the posts here it looks like I either fell asleep at the end or missed an entire episode.
