See more about this Episode
Amanda is a talented cartoonist and ardent feminist with a problem. She’s fortunate enough to intern at her dream company — a hip, up-and-coming animation house, populated by talented millennials — so she assumes her career will fall into place somehow, eventually. But the only thing she can focus on is figuring out how to find her perfect guy. Unfortunately for Amanda, she ends up dating one shitty guy after another, and struggles to learn lessons from her failed romances that will help her navigate future relationships.

In this episode: Amanda meets Tom, a genuine, happy man and a vegan. He’s not an annoying vegan, either. He isn’t interested in converting anyone; he just knows he’s never ever felt better. He’s mellow, happy, and magically NEVER ANGRY. Amanda thinks this is exactly what she needs to counterbalance her gloomy overthinking, but she’ll learn that even happy vegans have a dark side.

Starring Melissa Hunter, Emily Arlook, Bernard Jones, and featuring Sandra Oh.

From executive producers Lisa Kudrow and Dan Bucatinsky.
