    And we're back!

    I have no idea what's going on, or where we're going. But it's one hell of a ride!

    When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead...

    So the Shadow King still has his original body laying around somewhere? Seems like it would just be a skeleton at this point even if he did find it.
    I wasn't clear on why he would be more powerful if he found his body. That was probably intentional...

    I remember reading how one of David's power's was being able to bend reality to his will. I assume the Shadow King is kind of the same. They said something about his DNA had the mutant genes that could make him more powerful so maybe once he finds his body, or remains, he can just will it to life with thought.

    I'm kind of confused as to whether the Shadow King needs help or not. That bit in the beginning where Lenny and Oliver are in the pool and they say something like they're trapped. But then right before David has the vision of "Syd from the future" we see that "delusion" (creepy black baby chick) crawling under his bed while in the astral plane so I'm assuming it wasn't really Syd but a thought out in his head by the Shadow King

    Glad the show is back!

    Edit: I guess you could take it to mean that the Shadow King is trapped in Oliver's body and he trapped with Lenny, but whatev's

    One of the best, if not the best in a long time, on right now. I have absolutely no idea if anything we are seeing is real and love it.

    I don't know--I kind of like having some idea of what's going on. There were a few hints here and there, but if you have no idea what's real and who's who they appear to be, what can you figure out? I'll try one more episode. :(

    One banana, two banana, three banana, four
    All bananas make a split, so do many more
    Over hill and highway, the banana buggies go
    Come along to bring you the banana splits show


    Hearing the Banana Splits Song bought a smile to my face just like it did for Cary.

    Also, Aubrey Plaza can sing "Swinging on a Star" to me anytime. Even if I get turned into a pig.

    Aubrey Plaza is not a great actress, per se. I've seen her in some movies and thought she was mediocre at best, but she was definitely born to play the role of Lenny. I just love the way she moves and her facial expressions. Inspired casting choice!

    Well, the first episode was basically a bunch of weird stuff.

    And the second episode was basically a bunch of strange stuff.

    Can't wait for the third!

    :D

    Well, I always thought Amber Midthunder was a bit of a young doppelganger for Aubrey Plaza and in season one had to do a doubletake or two to realize they were different actresses. Now that the Aubrey Lenny is lobbying Amahl Farouk to find a new body for ‘her’, the Kerry/Cary Loudermilk body might make a nice fit for Aubrey Lenny/fat dude drug addict Benny, or am I crazy lost on an ethereal plane? Farouk waived off her request (for now) anyway.

    He just acted like her plans were small. That maybe if she thought bigger, even past her death, maybe he'd do something is the way I took it.
