Things get serious on TBC this week. This episode is not terribly funny and we've got some content warnings for you: eating disorders (anorexia), exercise disorders, alcohol, weapons, violence, & sexual assault/rape.

Luckiest Girl Alive tries to expose the nuance and neurosis of growing up as a woman in America. It reveals some glimpses of reality into a life steeped in consumerism, sexism, and abuse, but is a bit of an extreme take on all of it.

Unfortunately, we've also got another case of a Mary Sue, writing that sometimes ends up feeling like someone trying to be cool in a 90s chat room, and a stable full of characters who are just as hateable as the protagonist.
