The criticisms to this year's season are valid, but come on, that episode was hilarious. "Motherboarding"
I wonder how many people who think this is "American TV Sitcom" are missing the jokes. I live in NC and trust me, that is some very subversive humor. The water system is loaded with pig shit that all flows downhill giving everyone horrible allergies, it's exactly what local NC policy makers would talk about to the VP, thinking it's totally normal talking about "with frequency" ... and the people, old, young, black, white are HUGE ... "I'm guessing there will be a lot of flesh to press."
"It's not a fucking petting zoo" was as absurd as anything from the Thick Of It or Monty Python for that matter. The accent and impatience were dead on, but there's no way that lady would throw in an F bomb talking to a well dressed stranger in a public setting. The "fucking" was just icing on the case ... I was on the floor laughing.
