Co-signing on all this, itís such a fun show. I hadnít binged a series in a while and I ended up watching all 4 seasons of this in a week (including a Sunday where I did all of S3 and S4).

Finished it. Seasons 1 and 2 are great, but Season 3 is an absolute masterpiece. Wow. Alia Shawkat is an acting god in Season 3. And I could watch John Early do anything for an indefinite number of hours. I love Search Party so much.

Season 4 is a mixed bag though. I see what they were going for, but I'm not sure it entirely worked for me...

They took a big swing with Dory's character. But I honestly don't think I'm convinced that she would have behaved that way. Was there anything at end of Season 3 indicating she would have climbed back in that trunk? Really? That she would have essentially self-hypnotized? Certainly Dory was haunted, but it's a long journey from there to being so tortured with guilt that you want to erase your consciousness. I didn't see that journey in this season.

So against all odds, I pretty much always wanted to exit Alia Shawkat's scenes. And Chip wore thin pretty fast for me. The rest of the cast (mostly John Early) had to carry the season, and they kind of did. Thankfully the non-Dory content in Season 4 was super strong.

I almost forgot to call out the minutes-long Magnolia homage in Season 4. That was quite surreal.

Not a spoiler. You'll know it when you see it, though.

A dark comedy following a thirtysomething woman on the run after 10 years in a suffocating marriage to a controlling tech billionaire. Soon she discovers that her husband has implanted a monitoring device -- the Made for Love chip -- in her brain, allowing him to track her, watch her and know her "emotional data" as she tries to regain her independence after taking refuge in her desert hometown with her aging widower father and his synthetic partner.

I'm only 2 eps in, but I'm enjoying the premise, the cast (especially Romano) and execution.
