      There’s one example from season six that I can’t puzzle out. It was the Shailene Woodley joke. Which was not even a joke.

      It turns out it’s a 100% accurate paraphrase of something she actually said. And is not embarrassed to have said, I guess, because she’s friends with Lena Dunham, and probably gave her blessing and approval.

      Now I’m pretty sure that for everyone who watched that episode and came away with a deeper respect for Shailene Woodley’s insights into science and medicine, there’s 117 who now think she’s a nut.
