IMDb link.

Netflix summary:

Eric’s trauma isolates him, and Maeve’s essay wins a prize. Otis tries to hook up with Lily, but his deep-seated issues get in the way.

Notes:

  • Yikes, that was heavy. Is this midway / partway escalation of the stakes a television writing thing now? It happened in Crazy Ex Girlfriend and Made in Heaven too.
  • Let’s see, we had Maeve’s brother showing up, Otis’s sex trauma, poor Lily missing out on sex again, Eric being suspended and his father being at his wits’ end, Otis and Eric still sulking at each other, the weird bit with Adam and the essay, Jakob getting KLPD’d at the last minute, and the whole Jackson / brother bit seems more ominous than cheerful ‘Jackson’s lightening up.’
  • If months are passing, how does Maeve’s hair remain pink so far up?
  • Hooray for The Princess Bride.
  • Jean’s slight confessional to Jakob about finding it hard not to pry; and the last bit where she tells Otis she wants to be sure that he’s okay, made her a little sympathetic again.
