Bobby C and "levity"
I was worried when I watched the 7 minute teaser released before the season premiere, especially after reading an interview with Esmail saying he wanted to add some "levity" this year. It's meant to be a dark show and to tonally change it would be a mistake. I could've done without the protracted Red Wheelbarrow opening, but Bobby did a good job in the role and as long as it's not overdone, it'll be okay. The rest of the premiere was excellent, though I'm still perplexed by how graciously New Yorkers are taking things. IRL it would be very different.
