The show finds her spark
30 August 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Yeah, Debbie certainly does something. IN fact, she's got both the episode's focus and its eureka moment. Betty Gilpin finally gets some decent attention paid to her character and it feels overdue.

As far as Ruth goes, she's still the show's stagnant character, but she does make progress on a wrestling persona. And Alison Brie's Russian accent is amusing. But this belongs to Gilpin.

7/10
