SHRINKING hit the season finale right out of the ballpark. The episode tied up most every aspect of the series with the exception of one “boop” cliffhanger. Now I can’t wait for my therapy to begin again next year.

I never thought that Paul (Harrison Ford) could be so good at comedy. His facial expressions and extra beats make all the difference. His timing is impeccable. Who knew he could give such great hugs, but shhh. “What kind of a person hugs and tells?”

The writers gave Jimmy (Jason Segel) and Alice (Lukita Maxwell) amazing, authentic moments sharing their grief. Such a difficult subject to be able to measure equal parts of empathy and humor. It is the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about unless there is therapy in session. Can I have a pair of  “hot as shit shoes,” too?

Liz (Christa Miller) is the friend everyone should have. She says it like it is. She never holds back her thoughts and feelings, especially when someone acts like a “Dick.” Kudos! Now can I please have a rock?

SHRINKING is truthful, funny, and entertaining. I want to party with this group, but please, can someone give Jimmy some dance lessons? It is available to stream on AppleTV+.
