Shame it won’t be you covering it, but at least you can still stop by in the comments (right?) and drop quotes from the episode like the rest of us do because the Stray Observations can only be so long.
It’s sad that it’s going to be without you, though :(.
You’re the best LaFergs. I’ll miss your writing here, but I’m very glad that you have better things to move onto. Happy Trails!
I’ll miss seeing your reviews in general for this and for Lucifer. I know you’ve followed this show for so long and I was looking forward to seeing your perspective on the rest of this season and show specifically because of the depth of your knowledge. I’d rather read your reviews that someone who has only seen the… Read more
I watched both episodes before reading your reviews. The amount of time and considerable thought you put into a show others would consider to be a “simple sit-com” is admirable; this is one of those shows with episodes I can watch more than once but you fill in with such a keen eye and copious observations I feel like… Read more
I know it’s dicey territory. I know a show like this is woefully outmatched in trying to address wholesale the issues at hand. I know that it runs the risk of Very Special Episode territory. Read more
Thank you LaToya! Always looked forward to your reviews
Even if I haven’t always agreed with you every time, it’s been a pleasure reading your reviews of the show over the years. Congratulations and best wishes going forward LaToya!
I wasn’t sure about how Brooklyn 99 would feel after... well, the entire year we’ve had. I knew it had to do something, but I had no idea what. That first episode... by itself, no, it’s not enough. But it does give me the feeling that they know the road they have to go down, and that they have the courage to do it.… Read more
My hope is that by the end of the series, Jake is able to defeat his nemesis, Wario.
Congratulations on the new job! I’m gonna miss reading your reviews. Whenever I finished watching an episode, I’d always jump on here to read your review. I’ve reread your reviews many times during my re-watch. It was joy reading your writing. So thank you for that!
As someone else said, I wonder if these reviews got such low views because they were difficult to find. I’ve almost never seen them on the home page and have had to search for them myself. Bummer, because LaToya is a perfect fit for this show. I often feel like she’s reading my mind. Read more
I do wonder why Julie even thought that video would be damning for Zoya. The rich kids on this show are portrayed as rebellious and openly against authority, like how they get their teachers regularly fired, so wouldn’t the whole “f**k school” thing have Zoya gain brownie points with her peers?

I think one of the big reasons why student teacher relationship/grooming storylines rarely work in teen shows is because the vast majority of the time, the kids are being played by 20 somethings, and as a result the power imbalance ends up not being effectively communicated. Like with Riverdale, the show’s writing was… Read more
I actually thought Evan Mock improved this episode especially during the sex scene and in the last scene with Audrey! I also think it should be reminded that Aki’s character is suppose to be “innocent” so I really think he’s just playing to the introvert/shy character as much as possible.
