Did this one grab your emotions and squeeze them for all they’re worth? OK, granted there was a lot of good reconciliation stuff between Kevin and Randall. AND I won’t overlook that the cast has grown by three more Pearsons. BUT – Did I want to know how Kevin made it “In The Room” in time for delivery? Yes. Do I care about the invention of data compression? Not as much as the show’s writers obviously thought I would, no.

Don’t get me wrong – I didn’t hate the episode. As Caroline and I discuss in the podcast though, I wonder if we’re seeing examples of where COVID protocols have started to not only impact how stories are being told but the actual stories themselves. Listen in, and see if you agree with us.
