This is hilarious! The expressions on some of the faces are priceless and dead on (Van Alden and Rothstine made me laugh out loud). And the way you worded some of the pie graph titles (like "Italian shit") was also a riot!

The Richard one is my favorite but these are all so great and spot on.  EXISTENTIAL TERROR.  ITALIAN SHIT.  BOWTIES.  I love you (in a not creepy way), this is great.

LMAO! Van Alden and Rosetti are spot on! Chalky White too, except perhaps 80-90% Swag and the other half a killer fashion sense... his suits were always so interesting! XD

the only thing about this show is that Gaston, "I've committed every crime in the book, and gotten away with it" Means is in it.

indeed, if Disney ever made a movie set in 1920's New York, it's legally
required that they must have either Gaston Means or Hetty Green (though
she died in 1916) as the villian.

This is another "fandom I have to get into" on my list. NPR did a thing a few nights ago talking about BE (sadly I cannot remember the context only the awesome voice clips which had me going "wow" Pretty breathtaking acting and definitely made me curious to watch it!)

And knowing absolutely nothing about the characters, I hereby ship Rothstein's bowtie/everyone
