Off to a good start, titular line was great and gives you a good idea of the likely attempted arc for Barry this season.

There's momentum from the previous season, so I'm excited.

Sally's just horrible. I wonder how that'll turn out.

Yeah, everyone is kinda terrible in this show. Compelling and interesting and hilarious, but not good people.

I loved the shot/sequence of Sally on set making the TV show. Excellent set piece and a great performance from Goldberg (as always).

Nice to see Hank living his best (albeit secret) life.

Also, every hitman on the internet except for Barry is actually a cop.

As deeply flawed as they are, I still find myself having compassion for them — which is a testament to the writers and the performers. Feeling compassion for these awful people makes me feel that I'm in some way complicit. I'm still figuring out why I enjoy stories like this, or if ‘enjoy’ is even the right word.

Good gravy so many good throwaway lines and sight gags.

Flaky Critters.

That classic line from Shawshank Redemption: “Get rich or die trying.”

Both had me in stitches for an inordinate amount of time.

Sally’s heel turn is a little unexpected; I assume it’ll have fallout or have a backstory or something.

There’s a really great profile of Henry Winkler in the NYT but it’s got too many S3 spoilers for a mefi post, archive link.

Love the credits music, "Davey Crockett," my favorite Holly Golightly song before she went solo, from her time in Thee Headcoatees.

NoHo Hank is an honest man, he's honest with himself and with others.

Optometrist by nature.

Sally's just horrible.

Sometimes an actor is so good at playing a bad person I end up disliking the actor until I realize that's a tribute to their acting skill. I call this the Laura Linney Effect. Anyway, props to Sarah Goldberg for playing Sally so well.
