Stephen Tobolowsky the actor (of Adam Burgess) has been "nominated" as "one of the coolest people in LA". /s not /s

He is in my book.

Super talented actor, a la Steve Buschemi. Tobolowsky has better range, imo.

Jimmy continues to be an excellent write-in, but the extreme goofyness (without, you know, skill behind it) feels like an outlet rather than a coherent show.

Tom Braidwood - a producer who was corralled into acting - is the weakest link. The wrestler thing notwithstanding. Yuck.

Harwood (Byers) looks like he got some work, Haglund (Langly) not so much.

Maybe the problem was that tech moved so fast - the writers couldn't catch up (see, the television store saleperson's pitch). But that's on shitty writers not anticipating and just reacting and having no science department.

I don't remotely buy Yves treating the LGM as (near) equals.

And I can't credit the writers for Robinson spinning straw into gold.

Zuleikha Robinson was a casting triumph.
