Damn!

That was an awesome one. It's hard to guess what you'll get with each episode of this show, but I love how it feels when I'm watching. Teddy was a standout with its weirdness which I really dug. Thank you for an amazing show. It's not like anything else out there and I can relate to it in a way which doesn't happen with tv like it can with a movie..if that makes sense.
