Warning: Do not read this post without seeing Season 4 Episode 5 “Burrito Bowl.”
Please Like Me fans took to social media last night after a powerful, unexpected turn of events for Josh and his cast.
I once told Josh Thomas I wasn’t speaking to him after he killed off Aunt Peg (Judi Farr) in Season One, so I think I will have to now permanently remove him from my Christmas card list.
But seriously, while I do feel a bit robbed in the way the story unfolded it is the spontaneity and lack of resolution that is one of Please Like Me‘s strengths. Along with its sheer determination to veer from comedy to tragedy. All of which is such an achievement for one so young as Thomas.
Next week is the season finale and what I suspect may well be the last outing for the show.
Update: Season 4 has now been picked up by Hulu in the US after the closure of Pivot.
