    My mind is blown, but not in a good way.

    Eta: solid advice re: not staying up late last night to watch Canal.

    Ugh I'm two or three episodes back. I keep watching GBBO at night instead because it's happy.

    I keep falling behind because N doesn’t love it lately so he never wants to watch more than one episode at a time!

    W won’t watch at all. He watched like half of one episode with me and he couldn’t take it.

    In the excitement of Jeopardy I forgot there was a new episode. Just watched. Catch me in the spoilers unless you are @Kimmers.

    I now remember vaguely hearing that there would be a bottle episode this year. As the kids say, “chief, this ain’t it.” It was a giant yawn and a Jeopardy letdown.

    We're catching up (UK still behind you guys).

    We thought Christopher Meloni being in it was a missed opportunity for Mariska to be in this too.

    Also holy shit at the DC handmaids having their mouths seen shut. Wtf.

    I am finally caught up! I have to say I think if they really intend to do 10 seasons of this they need to cut some major characters and give us new ones to get invested in. They’re so afraid to kill their darlings they’re retreading a lot of ground they’ve already covered. I’d be happy to be done with Fred & Serena at this point. And I need more Emily & Moira.

    10 seasons?! Oh no. They clearly don’t have enough good plot instincts for three!

    Ugh it was not even creepy, it was just boring. What even happened to move the plot forward besides Mrs. Lawrence dying, as as much as I liked her character, not sure I can even call her death an actual plot point.

    Lawrence totally knows she played some part in Eleanor's death. I bet that's going to come back to bite her in the ass.

    The new book is out! Got my copy!

    When I was at the store the whole front table was just that and I came in and got one immediately. This woman was like "this seems popular--should I read the first one?" And I was like OMG YAAAS. She bought a copy.

    Haha I can’t believe she needed to ask!!

    I asked my library to order it. I can’t believe they won’t but I also haven’t gotten notified so ....??

    I don't think it's as popular a book here! Lots of my coworkers hadn't heard of it until the series came out.
