Even before finding out he was one of Barbara's students, it made perfect sense that not even a hit piece could bring itself to say anything bad about her.

The charter school arc might be interesting but hope they have more than softballs. Not sure why I'm hoping for non-softballs in softball: the tv genre but they really get me fired up. Guess this is also supposed to be a funny show, not just an outrage essay but fuck charter school systems. Profit-run society is ridiculous.

Tariq is a fun character and I kinda wish he had a bit more depth to be be to stay around more but if they're gonna give him one-note they've used it well so far. The half-sandwich cracked me up good.

Tariq can't remember what Janine's favorite movie is, but Gregory knows it! (Also I love how Gregory still takes care of the garden but denies doing so.)

Jacob trying to save face after initially ignoring the lawyer was so tremendously awkward, yet a classic Jacob move.
