    I had high hopes for this episode with Eleanor meeting her presumed dead Mom, but I was a little disappointed with the choice of Mom, who was clearly too young to play Eleanor's Mom.

    Is interest waning? 7 days without a discussion post?

    I loved the episode. Andy Daly was perfectly cast.

    I did look up the ages of Kristen Bell and the actress who played her mother. They're about 9 years apart. But I think that's supposed to be part of the joke.

    It wasn't as funny as what we got with Jason and his dad. more serious in tone.

    I guess we get a Chidi episode next? Seems like Thanai had her part here in this episode too.

    Leslie Grossman has played Eleanor's mom in flashbacks in previous episodes. Regardless of how old Eleanor was in the flashback, her mom has always looked about the same (usually carrying a glass of wine with a straw in it).

    Hasn’t Christina Applegate played Elenor’s mom too?

    Nope. It has always been this actress.

    I really liked this episode. Thought the dual emotional turns near the end were well set up and quite effective.

    There have been times that they've pulled her skin to make it look like she had a facelift that pulled her face really tightly. Kind of like at Eleanor's dad's funeral.

    I didn't get to watch it until a couple of days ago. I've had a busy couple of weeks and was two episodes behind.

    I like the way the series is going now. It took too long to get there, and the first part of the season dragged for me.

    I do, too. However, it is getting better.
