Well, this answered my question from the pilot of 'where do they go from here?'. I was worried that there would be a level of soapy-drama distinct from the sports-drama, but I guess that was a needless worry, none of the subplots in this episode felt pasted on/shoehorned in.

Love the scoring/music on this series.

I'm wondering in what world TV sports commentary is primarily the purview of aggressively snarky women.

Other than that, I really like this show!!!!!!

If the flashback structure is going to continue throughout the season, it explains why they kept Ginny's mother as an offscreen voice in the pilot - why lock themselves into casting such a potentially important role for just a tiny cameo? Now they're free to go anywhere with it. I got the impression that maybe she and Ginny are estranged, but I may just be overspeculating from when Ginny's brother mentioned her.

"I'm wondering in what world TV sports commentary is primarily the purview of aggressively snarky women."

The world where THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL! (I will watch this all season just for that quote.)

I can't get over how basebally Dan Lauria is. Also I am 100% on board with Joanne Garcia in anything. I feel like Ali Larter has never yet gotten a role that's up to her skills and I hope this role is. Kylie Bunbury is a really good actress.

I also cannot imagine that Jimmy Kimmel would have her do redecorating tips; he'd have her throw nectarines at something particularly smashy. Too sexist even for Kimmel. (Also I think the audience would have interrupted her with applause several times.)

I would hope that Kimmel's show would have subverted the bit, but who knows.

It wasn't a picnic, certainly, but it looked like her agent really dodged a bullet with her ex.
