So, Mike & Dan are tasked with writing a parody song for Selina to sing (oh, Lord) at the Vic Allen dinner, some sort of gathering where politicians play comedians. She ends up doing a parody of 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover; it isn’t very funny, but then I think it’s supposed to be bad. Gary Cole gives a masterclass in line reading by sitting in the audience and, halfway through the song, saying four words: “Well, this is asinine.” Funniest moment of the episode. Not even kidding. Well, except for one glorious scene in which Gary talks Selina into going to lunch with him so she can meet his girlfriend. And let me tell you, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale and Jessica St. Clair around one table is like the comedy equivalent of whatever those ASMR people are always on about. The rest of this episode isn’t so hot. It’s the first episode of this season to just be kind of meh. The next episode will follow Selina and team to Finland on a diplomatic kinda thing; that has a lot of promise. We’ll see what happens then. Whatever. 2 ½ stars.
tl;dr – only one genuinely hilarious scene; this episode is the closest this season has come so far to a skippable episode. 2 ½ stars.
