    It amazes me how when Josh wasn’t working and hung out with Diane, people wouldn’t shut up but now that Josh has found work that will stick, there seem to be nobody talking about the fact that Josh FOUND work.

    Still a nobody as far as those in the business are concerned. Big whoop, 10 episodes. He’s better at holding Diane’s purse and shopping.
