I was considering suicide but then...
24 October 2019 | by mandyinmanSee all my reviews

I was being evicted from my home, my husband was about to divorce me because I couldn't have children, and my mother was soon to be dead. I moved in with my sister and her husband and children, was staying downstairs on their couch. I turned this on. Apparently it was the premiere night. I cried. Of sheer joy. Because so many of these things are relatable to me. Especially the fact her was a teacher. As so was I. For 14 years. And now. I feel like as though Joe is my godsend. My spiritual husband. Thank you Joe. For giving me the strength to move on and build my life back. It's been over a year since this show premiered. And I'm still here. I have my own home again, my life is getting back to normal. And I'll always remember just how much this show and Joe helped me in that dark time. Please. Adult Swim. I bet you. Give us season 2. I've been so patient and good this year. And I'll consider it my *Pera-Sonal* ;) Christmas present if you please just give me if any just ONE more season. Please and thank you. :)
