HELLO!!!! For the record, I was saving this show so I could watch along and your timing for starting it could not have been better. So thank yooouuuuuuuu. :D

(Also: a friend gifted me a copy of Each of Us a Desert and I am very excited to finally get to read it.)

Yessssssss. The color palette was like a vacation from the shades of beige color palette in my apartment this year.

I also must confess that while I would not trade Petra's development for the world I do miss the early seasons Marbella decor just a wee bit.

But really, it's hard to pick a favorite character in this show.

Yeah, it really is. Xo became a favorite really quickly for me just because of how layered she was and how great a job Andrea Navedo did in the role. And once Rogelio was given a chance to develop too he quickly became another one of my favorites. Petra's arc was just really satisfying and honestly really moving to watch. (And yes, so many shoutouts for her comedy skills because it was entirely due to her flailing her way through keeping a man hostage in a closet that I felt anything other than a lot of frustration when she was onscreen.) Oooo, anytime Lina came back was also great. Really, the Villanueva Family is my favorite character on the show.

I was a first-time watcher so I don't really have anything re: spoilers, BUT I have repeatedly forgotten to talk about one of my favorite things about the show on the production side and now's as good a time as any.

Basically, I would like to give an award to whoever was responsible for the scene transitions in each episode. Whether it was through the dialogue or visuals (often both) there was always *something* tying them together in ways that were extremely gratifying as a viewer.

So I guess I'm curious to know what were your favorite creative touches on the show?

Ooooo that's a good comparison. I think the fact that both Jane and FNL not only quickly established a distinct tone and visual style, the setting and characters were strong enough to help carry audiences through any rough patches.

I've got my headphones on and SHOUT OUT to the beautiful music. Not sure if it's changed but it's been a bit more developed lately, it's playing right through this. I really loved the score for this episode.

Yesssssss. I finally looked up the music that absolutely kills me every time and it's apparently called Moody Jane, but I love so much of the score for this show.

In the same vein, learning that the show we've been watching is the telenovela adaptation of Jane's novel, and that the adaptation itself is written into the end of the novel, is possibly the most delightfully meta thing I've ever seen

I'd been hoping for a couple seasons now that this would turn out to be the case and I am very pleased as well.

No moment made me happier, though, than seeing Raf and Jane in bed with the three kids, joking about tooting.
