5. the actress who plays Sally is growing up. the most obvious bit is that her voice changed. that was unexpected. it’s a drastic change. I hear relatively little about female voice changes in adolescence.
6. is there anything more painful than watching an actor fake playing an instrument while sound produced by a professional musician is dubbed over? really bad. it’s worse when the imitation is good, but you can still notice it’s fakery because you play or used to play or know someone who plays the instrument. in that case you sense the bad dub but also feel like an over-cultured prick for doing so.
7. is this whole episode going to be glamor shots of Megan in a new outfit for every scene? I am on board.
8. I don’t follow Francis’s wealth. there’s been no indication in the show (to my recollection) that he has ever been successful in anything but politics. working in the mayor’s office does not buy that house. maybe it’s family money. his mother is precisely that fat old elitist hag character that’s part of every TV or movie family with old wealth.
