This was a tiny bit raunchy for Mini McGee (who is a big fan) but loooooooooove

Why did Young Beleanor look more like Young Janet?

Mindy St. Claire was a perfect neutral person. Pretty bad, but managed to sneak in a really good action. I wonder if she was a proto-Eleanor when the show was being developed.

"That's what you think Hell is?" is possibly my favorite single line reading of this entire series. I don't even know why, but it's killing me.

When you rewatch, take a particular glance at the magazines in the checkout when Eleanor is reading "Celebrity Baby Plastic Surgery Disasters." There's one called "International Sophisticate" with Tahani on the cover, and her coverline is "Not Just Kamilah’s Sister!" HARSH.

Also among Eleanor's sins I noticed that she showed a 9-year-old The Shining, and that she scalped epi pens, just like that pharma-bro guy!

I'm going to have to buy this on amazon so I can freeze-frame for all the background jokes.

It's on Hulu, if that helps.

Be sure to check out the byline of the horoscope column that Eleanor reads.

Cassanda Satchnork-Caperswitch? Should I recognize that?

There's also a Dennis Feinstein ad on the back of one of the magazines, which makes me wonder where Leslie Knope ends up in this world.

The Best Place

(She's probably the first American president to end up there.)

No, it just falls under Mike Schur's long tradition of giving ridiculous names to minor characters.

My sister & brother-in-law did that on the point system screen in episode one and the frozen yogurt flavors later and reported back to me. Yes, lots of jokes.

I would just like to point out that the Lonely Gal Margarita Mix For One is several times the size of the other margarita mixes on the shelf.

Am I a horrible person destined for The Bad Place if I didn't think Eleanor's big night sounded...so...bad? I mean...hey. Sounds okay to me.
