Anyone else watch this?  The six part series wrapped up last night.  Worth watching in my opinion.

    Watching the finale tonight or tomorrow---really liked the series. Good that it's been picked up for another season (different cast & location, apparently).
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    I didn't realize that.  I didn't even know last night was the season finale until I pulled it up to watch.

    I kind of like the suspense of having to wait a week for the next episode but I always wish I would just wait for all of them to be out so that I can binge. I lose way too much waiting between episodes. Getting old I guess.

    Wait, Aubrey Plaza/April Ludgate is in it?
    Damn, I love her.  
    Season one was OK, some good parts and some cringey stuff.  Will have to give a look, sometime.

    Nice.  Not sure where it will fall in the rotation, but Mrs FMe liked the first season more than I did, so it can be one we watch together.  (She won't mind if I drool over the lovely and hilarious Ms. Plaza...)

    There is another actress in there that you'll be drooling over as well.

    Both of them. ;)
    With Aubrey Plaza, she is just a regular pretty gal....with superhuman comedic abilities.  That is what I find so awesome about her.  Not many women like her!

    I have to say that I didn't know who she was. I never really watched Parks & Rec so she's new to me.

    Watch some of what comes up on YouTube if you search for her interviews. 
    She is straight up awesome.

    Pretty tame episode last night....the last one is going to be a burner though.

    Is Jennifer Coolidge's character going to get ripped off by the gay guy? Was the picture that she saw of the gay guy and her husband real? Seems like she would have said something about it. Now I'm wondering if her husband set her up for the rip off.

    That was crazy. Didn't quite turn out how I expected but it was great.

    Really felt sorry for Tanya. She took those fuckers out. I was also surprised that we didn't see Greg come back...I kept thinking he must be hiding somewhere on the boat.

    We watched the second season first, thinking that we wouldn’t have missed much as it was a different cast. I’m glad we did it that way around as I think season 2 was much better. If we’d watched S1 first we may not have bothered with S2.

    Yeah, I thought S1 was ok but nothing special. I didn’t really care about any of the characters, and I preferred the ones in S2.

    ---SPOILERS...and not sure how to actually hide stuff------------





    Finished 2. Satisfying ending for sure. I thought it was low key funny when Albie goes "Oh, yeah I got played" when Portia asks how things went with him and Lucia. lol   The hookers were great.

    If, like 2, 3 has one character return, who do you think it will be? Portia? Uncle Rico?

    Also, I was a little confused because I wasn't sure if I dozed off or they just didn't show it, but Ethan and his friend's wife definitely hooked up on that little island right?


    Finally...legitimately happy Ethan and Harper finally ended up in a good place. I wasn't sure that would happen or not. 

    Good show.
