The Season Finale

Speed dialers, the time has come: the first season finale. Thirty episodes later, Ira and Doreen take stock of the trash ass year that was 2016. First, a rundown of the worst things about this year, which is essentially a rant against men. And then--the best things. Moments like Lemonade, Michelle Obama, and Moonlight made this year bearable, if not beautiful. Here's to hoping 2017 will have them, too. 
Thanks for riding with us for this first year. Season 2 will be bigger, better, blacker, and of course, shadier. See you in February.
