I hope they'll be able to pull something fresh out this season, but this one didn't particularly grab me.

I did not like Richard or Gilfoyle in this one and I felt bad for Jared and Dinesh. I did think it made for good TV and I'm glad they made some big changes to keep it interesting. I'm curious to see how the company and Richard change now that it's actually much bigger. They've had the money and growth in the past but not like this.

Helen Hong is awesome and was great in this. That was fun to see. I hope she's not just a bit part and is around for the rest of the season.

Gavin fighting so hard to keep the Hooli name reminded me of a much earlier episode where Richard said "I came up with the name Pied Piper!!!" to blank stares.

I thought the awkwardness of Richard's appearance in front of congress (based heavily on Mark Zuckerberg's Cambridge Analytica performance) was an outstanding piece of comic acting.

Seems like they are writing Jared off into the sunset and that makes me sad.
