Definitely deserved an all-caps thread title!

Lady. Motherforking. Dynamite.

I guess I don't know what I'm trying to say here in this post but I know y'all are just itching to have a thread for this. I've only watched 4 or 5 episodes, I want to binge watch, but my partner hates binge watching. I get it. Maria Bamford is my favorite though.

The last episode I watched was the one where she was Diane all the time with that guy. forking amazing.

I saw the first episode last night and couldn't watch anymore because it was late but I LOVED IT. I had to go back at the end and re-watch the opening 'shampoo commercial' because it was so hysterical. "I got my tubes tied because getting pregnant at my age is a risk!" "No time to pay!" "Outta my way, you gypsies!" I can already tell it's one of those shows that is amusing the first time around but is complex enough that I will be able to watch it many times and get something new out of it every time.

I've only watched the first episode so far, but I liked it. She has a gift for finding the psychosis in everything.

Seriously, though, as much as I hope there are a million episodes of this show and Lennon Parham gets lots of work, she and Jessica St. Clair need to get back in the studio and give the world some more episodes of Womp It Up! I'm having Marissa/Listler withdrawals, and I can only say "come on, man" so many times to myself.

I'm listening to her interview on Bullseye now. She's great. It sounds like the show is pretty close to real life.

Ahhh, I just watched the first few episodes because of this thread, and the coffee shop she's at with her two friends at the start of the meth bisexual boyfriend episode, I'm pretty sure, is the same coffee shop where I saw her in real life a couple years ago when I was in LA visiting some friends!

I'm loving all the guest stars on this show. Adam Pally, Jenny Slate, Jason Mantzoukas, June Diane Raphael. It's like a nonstop cavalcade of people who crack me up.

I'm so into this show. The Jack and Diane one was amazing! I loved the part where the Duluth co-workers pressure her to do a joke. Gah, so good.

And yes to so many awesome people being in it!

It's kind of messing with my head, though, because I remember watching Maria Bamford's standup when I was a kid and now she's only like 45, which doesn't feel significantly older than me. Time is weird!

Oh GOODDDDD that was painful and hilarious. In fact, that's what most of this show is to me. Laughing hysterically while somewhere deep inside I am also on the verge of crying just as hysterically. When she's at the party doing Diane and shouting "I'M SO EXTROVERTED HAHAHAHA" I was dying from both laughter and painful self-identification. Or the episode where she wants to make a good impression on her boyfriend's kids and just keeps ending up in the shower screaming hysterically into a towel. Oh god, is that relatable.

Saaaaame. Even her facial expressions when she goes from smiling to like cringing or grimacing at herself are so on point and hit really close to home.

I finished season one last night! I LOVE THIS SHOOOOOOW. I need to go back and watch it from the beginning because there is just so much going on. I already went back and watched the Sassafrass Lady shampoo commercial another two times.

ETA: I find the very-thinly-vieled references to Target very interesting. I'm sure she's bound by a lot of legal mumbo jumbo and frankly I'm amazed it was as blatant as it was in the show, but I would really like to hear more from her about her experiences.

YES. I didn't even know it was a real song and not a ditty they wrote for the show until the final episode, when they played the full song over the credits. Man, if a song lyric has ever been more relatable...

I thought it was funny that she dated not one but two former Supermen (Brandon Routh and Dean Cain) on the show.
