  1. I agree Gillian Flynn not being nominated for Adapted Screenplay is awful. It’s more of a snub then The Lego Movie. I just wanted to let you know that the show is good but it sounds kind of muted through most of it. I could not hear you 3 as clear as previous episodes.

    1. Oh that’s because Mette couldn’t record it this time! I (Sofia) had to do it, and so there were none of Mette’s fancy settings to improve sound quality, sorry about that. Yeah we’re all still pretty angry about Flynn, too.
