Debugger stuck in "Collecting data..." on all threads

I've been unable to debug throughout the video series. Whenever I set a breakpoint, run the debugger and pause, I see my list of threads and frames, but I can not see my variables because it is "collecting data..." for an eternity. Any help would be welcome. Thanks!

Sounds like your workspace isnt working. Are you using Treehouse's workspace? If so, you need to contact tech support directly. Ive had to do that once.

I'm just in Android Studio, up to date on all SDK plugins. I've tried debugging with the emulator and with an Amazon Fire tablet. In both cases, the app runs the way it is supposed to, the debugger is just unusable.
