More and more, I think it'd be refreshing to be explicitly told "Hey, minorities/women/low income people, this is designed specifically for you to fail. Carry on."

Y'all are 100% right. They are SO refreshingly self-assured. I guess Abbi who would more of the typical train wreck if only because she seems to worry more, but she's still so different than all the other examples.
And even though Lincoln is there, nothing about Illana is dependent on Lincoln saving here. Even when he has to fix her tooth.
And them cuddling in the hospital bed was just about the best. Broad City, man.
I get where on Broad City, they are in the train wreck archetype, but somehow I never considered them as such. I don't know - maybe it's because that show seems to differ so much from all of the other examples.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)
I can get behind all 5 of those things. Related = Have you read any of Channing Tatum's GQ interview? He talks about funfetti cake with such passion.
@isabelle bleu I know it's because Jon Hamm/Don Draper have both gotten older but I feel like you can see the sharp edges being worn down.
I guess it seems so old to discuss people being racist in Mad Men now, in the 7th season. But Bert Cooper telling Joan to move Dawn from reception was so disheartening.
And the music in these two episodes has been perfect. Sally getting out of the car while This Will Be Our Year plays and Vanilla Fudge's cover of You Keep Me Hangin' On at the end of the first episode.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I accept this ranking.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Seriously - Jon Hamm with Shawn Hunter hair? Everything I never knew I wanted.
@cabber You hit it on the head. But it's good that Veronica wasn't always 100% moral.
@cabber Yuup. I'm probably gonna get on my friend's Prime account and re-watch the series soon.
So excited for some Wallace.
