This was weird and different. And also awesome. I completely bought all the comedy thrown out there.

As an adoptee, I get really twitchy about stories where someone finds out they're not biologically related later in life. They are so rarely done well I can't even bring to mind one I've seen that was. This one was. The lengths Jake and Terry went to to make sure Charles would feel like he was a True Boyle were lovely; we should all have such friends.

Loved Jake's Benoit Blanc attempt.

Best of all: we got an actual, for real Kevin and Raymond kiss! In the rain! In the middle of the street!

The exterior of the Boyle homestead is the same house Mindy St. Claire lived in in The Good Place.

That's all.

"Here's what I've learned as a PI: People suck, everyone cheats, and love is an illusion." Sounds like someone I met years ago who also used to work as a PI.

"Like I told you, it was a typical night."
"Right. Cousin kissing circle, everyone gets burped after dinner--normal stuff."

My wife's father, who had fluffy white hair, died four days before we started to watch this episode--and pressed STOP in horror at the moment the fluffy-white-haired Boyle patriarch passed away open-mouthed in the Boyle cousin's arms.

THAT is all.

(I'm going to watch it eventually and inform my wife if she's missing anything truly important in the storyline. I don't think she'll ever get to it.)
