Beyond the Binge reflects on episodes from a full season perspective. It is not intended to be spoiler-heavy, but there will be some spoilers throughout. Previously: A New Attitude.

While I can’t fully condone the seldom usage of Maeby and George Michael (and Buster) in the first two-thirds of the season it sure does make for a helluva payoff down the stretch as the episodes never seem to hit a lull, tie all sorts of loose ends together, and allow Alia Shawkat and Michael Cera to shine.

Maeby Fünke’s “Señoritis” is a whirlwind of awesome, and chocked full of buried items and GIF-able moments that make this probably the longest and most in-depth “Beyond the Binge” installment of all. Let’s jump right in…

The actor who plays Perfecto (Eli Vargas) also played “Mexican Teenager” in the S2 episode “¡Amigos!”. I see no way they aren’t the same person in the AD universe.

“Babies Having Babies” is filming in Maeby’s algebra class taught by Donnie Richter.

“So, after returning, worn from the harsh winds of sea…” — The narrator segues from S3 finale footage to new footage only moments later in the timeline by winking at the fact that Michael Cera looks the most different of anyone in S4.

Maeby and George Michael coughing to attract Lindsay and Tobias’s attention can be heard strongly in the background of “Indian Takers” but isn’t revealed until now.

“Please don’t squeeze the Shaman.” We get the full reveal to what I didn’t realize so many people didn’t pick up on (and I did!) in “Indian Takers.” Also, a fun new play on “no touching!
