    One thing that’s always bothered me about Ron’s birthday is that he’s chomping down steak during the climax of The Bridge on the River Kwai. That film’s runtime is nearly 3 hours; the steak would be ice cold.

    That was likely his 3rd or 4th steak by then

    multiple deliveries. You think Leslie Knope is unprepared?

    Agree to disagree. I think it’s an oversight because the bridge explosion scene is iconic whereas not many people are going to recognize a random scene with William Holden stumbling around the jungle or hanging at a luxury hospital.

    obviously you are correct. It’s a continuity error.

    I’ve never watched before and getting ready to start. Is there a season I should just stop at since it goes downhill from there?

    It goes out great, but starts out slow. You should watch season 1 but season 2 is when it really gets going.

    S1 Ep 6- Rock Show

    This was the best episode of the short season. Seemed to build through S1 and went out strong.

    Possibly an unpopular opinion, but I like season 1. The show really finds its footing in season 2 and never lets up. Probably my favorite sitcom. I love the characters and writing so much

    didn't you argue with me because you thought it was normal to just read episode recaps on wikipedia for Master of None?

    I mean the entire storyline for the entire first half of the series is driven by a promise Leslie makes in episode 1, so I'd also say it's probably necessary to watch. Even if it doesn't reach the heights of later seasons, it's still not bad compared to most shows, and it's only 6 episodes.

    Imo the series really ‘kicks off’ with the word “wiz palace.” There’s lots of good stuff before that episode in season 2 but from that moment in the series is nails till the end.

    S2E10 - The hunting trip episode crushed me. Leslie covering for Tom with the ranger was fantastic as she made up excuses and then Ron’s head at the welcome back party.

    “I’ve done some research and divorce is the second most stressful event in a persons life. Marriage is number seven. Just a heads up it all sucks.”

    You won’t hit a “down” (relatively speaking) episode for another 2 seasons or so.
