Make sure to watch all the way through the end-credits - they threw in a couple of extra bits and an outtake. (And now I realize they did it in episode 1 as well!)

This show is just the best.

The basic ball and the wedding sketches killed me! And the Recluse. And the missing mug. I wish I could just sit down and watch this for five hours.

The Fatimah-coffee mug sketch was so surreal, completely unexpected tone and so much funnier. Caldwell Tidicue's Basic Ball host was amazing. And Trinity getting trapped in a store by the Recluse was genius.

What I really love is that there's so much sharing sketch time. I knew Robin Thede and Ashley Nicole Black before this show, but I am really enjoying getting to know Gabrielle and Quinta too.

Here's more Ashley Nicole Black and Nicole Byer together on Byer's podcast! The bit at the end where they patiently but firmly tell off the man in the Q&A who not-all-mens them ... love it.
