Episode 18 - Plan B

1 January 2018

I've never really thought much of the Devon Banks character and his innuendo-laden, corporate fantasy nonsense banter with Jack. This was no exception though adding babies to each man's life did make for a different conclusion.

Liz' vague search for a Plan B wasn't up to much either. The tangent into the threat to the job of writers felt a bit self-involved but I imagine most people enjoyed the Aaron Sorkin scene quite a bit.

Otherwise this was an assortment of the usual stuff with the writers all revealing their plan Bs (some of which were fun), Kenneth babbling nonsense and Hank Hooper becoming irritating with his "I'm smiling but angry" statements.
