I just finished watching her middle two episodes and she is kind of playing a female DM in this series. When Banks tries to get her to loosen up a bit and be more sociable, it reminds me of DM trying to be nice to Holly. She just isn't very good at it
That is exactly what I thought -- like she was channeling DM. It was actually a little odd. There were a couple of weird moments when she was way off-base with jokes, also.
Maybe Rob has a different take?
