    2 minutes into S2 of DP and it looks like they’re continuing the tradition of bashing a competing streaming service once an episode, like they did once per episode in S1. It honestly makes Hulu look sad that they force in jokes when they rule their share (primarily next-day broadcast) of the roost, and it lessens the comedy of an otherwise great show.
