  1. Love the red “Sitting” dress (tartan skirt and red jacket). adds to wish/to-make list

    The photo of Midge in the Synagogue with Suzy…..Suzy looks SOOO like Dawn French there!

  2. I’m sorry, but I can’t watch this show. It was on my watchlist for the longest time, but then I heard about Midge outing a young Black man during her act during season 3. And to make matters worse, she offered some half-hearted apology. She sounds like a terrible person.

    1. She is a terrible person a lot of the time, but she does get punished by the fates (or casting agents) when she does terrible things (like outing the Black performer).

    1. Well now I feel myself pulled three ways in a savage struggle between that excellent turban-topped ensemble, that superbly sexy sailor suit and my abiding love of beautiful women wearing spangles (Unfortunate collar or no) when it comes to rating the Best Look in this particular fashion show.

      Sadly the caftan does nothing for me, so I’m not able to pick a compromise candidate.

  3. That front on Zelda’s dress has exactly the same embrodery that my late grandmother used to make. In fact I might even have one of the bedcovers with it somewhere. I am Ukrainian, but I cannot be sure it’s Ukrainian dress overall, rather some mix of predominantly Polish and some Ukrainian traditional elements (we have a very varied national dress depending on a region).

  4. I’m afraid the final season, with the exception of a few scenes, left me cold.

  5. We loved most of the earlier seasons, but are struggling with this last one. Some of the flash forwards are amusing, but they are REALLY over-doing all the fast talking stuff to the detriment of actually showing the standup routines. Those ex-in-laws are AWFUL characters, I just want to scream at them to shut the f up. I’ll be relieved when it’s done tbh

  6. I’ve never been a fan of flash forwards. The only time I think a show has made it work was the Parks and Rec finale. I just think that you are given a certain amount of time to tell a story, and what happens after should be left up to the imagination of your audience. Telling us what happens for the rest of their lives takes some of the fun out of it.
