Josh Thomas answers 10 burning questions from the 'Please Like Me' season 2 finale

Josh Thomas answers 10 burning questions from the 'Please Like Me' season 2 finale
In predictably unpredictable fashion, season 2 of Please Like Me wrapped with drunken skinny dipping, a disastrous balloon ride, and Josh (Josh Thomas) once again falling asleep with a mentally unstable loved one. As for his same-named hero's sleeping arrangements, Thomas laughed as he told EW, "I don't think that'll happen next year. I don't think we want to get into a situation where, at the end of each season, it's like, 'Who's Josh going to get into bed with?'" That said, Plm's creator and star isn't ruling out the possibility that "maybe next year it'll just be John. That's actually such a cute idea.

Life's a zoo for a forlorn Josh in new 'Please Like Me' clip
Pop quiz, neurot-shot: Your roommate/crush has just humiliated you sexually, so what do you do? What do you do?

If you’re Please Like Me’s Josh (Josh Thomas), the answer might just be “Go to the zoo!” Technically, the idea comes from Josh’s mum, but his ex Claire (Caitlin Stasey) thinks it might be consoling after a rough run-in with Patrick (Charles Cottier). In typical Josh fashion, even the most mundane activity stirs up a comically conflicted monologue in which the lovably neurotic protagonist compares himself to a panda, insults Claire, and talks about masturbating monkeys… for starters.
