Watching Mark be completely unprepared and say things like "[V qba'g xabj vs Wnar fubhyq or jevgvat sbe n gryrabiryn, fur fubhyq or jevgvat ebznapr be jbzra'f svpgvba]" is so great. I have missed this site. It took a pandemic for me to feel like I have the time to really participate again and that sucks. I wish I could have been here the whole time! It's been what, 8 years? Jesus.
I LOVE "the problem is further back." I remember the day after I watched this episode I was reading one of those Reddit relationships post where the relationship itself is obviously a Bad Idea but the person writing the post thinks it's just whatever the latest conflict is, and I wanted to go to them and be like "look, the problem is further back."
I love them all living in Alba's house too. Multiple generations under one roof always seems so cozy to me, although I know in practice it's probably like "I can't have sex in my own house or my grandma will hear me*." I just feel like we lose touch with our families of origin so easily when we live in different places. I really wish I could be around every day watching my niece grow up, but I only see her on holidays.

I would TOTALLY watch the Raf and Petra Buddy Shenanigans show. AND the Michael and Rogelio one.
Someone pointed out that if you're on a tour bus during Oscar night, you're probably not that excited about the Oscars. I did like when Denzel Washington married that couple though, and the picture of Ryan Gosling whispering in the woman's ear is my new favorite meme.
I liked Justin Timberlake's opener, although nobody else seemed to--everyone else on my Twitter was like "ugh this song is boring and this is a bad opening" and I was like "DANCE PARTY, GUYS."
I feel like in general the Oscars tries too hard to please everyone and ends up really disjointed and incoherent. Like they were going for a "classic hollywood" thing this year, with the opener and the montages of past winners, but then they had to add Jimmy Kimmel to appeal to The Youths or some shit, and they fuxed it up. You need someone naturally funny to deal with the little ad-lib moments like that, and Kimmel... isn't.
