Some reasons why I will be binging on Enlightened this weekend:
1) I have watched all the available episodes of Parenthood
2) This discussion of the show on The Awl:
Why the show works so often for me and punches me in the gut is that it engages in a high-wire act—here is a person who could very easily be a punching bag, or the butt of a lot of jokes, and even though if you met her in person she would very likely be annoying and she is downright inconsiderate to people a lot of the time, I feel a genuine sympathy for her, and that comes from how utterly human she is.
3) This review of the show on The AV Club:
What’s amazing about Enlightened is that it extends that emotional acuity to everybody in its ensemble, no matter how small the part.
4) This interview with Enlightened’s creator, Mike White, on Vulture.
5) This interview on Buzzfeed in which he gives a shout out to Terry, which brings me to ….
5) Mike White is on the show on Monday.
Guess I better get started. iTunes Store, here I come.

Besides hanging out with Natasha Allegri and the good folks from BOOM! Studios, you can meet this weekend the crew from kaboom!’s Adventure Time comics: writer Ryan North and artists Braden Lamb and Shelli Paroline. To Seattle!
If you’re anywhere near the Great Northwest in the U.S. this weekend, go say howdy to Natasha at the Emerald City Comicon (and pick up some Cartoon Hangover swag).
Meet Natasha Allegri at the Emerald City Comicon
“Bee and PuppyCat” creator Natasha Allegri (oh, yeah, she’s also the woman behind Adventure Time’s Fionna & Cake) is hanging out in Seattle this weekend as part of the BOOM!
