Tonight’s This Is Us is very powerful for all with a surprise ending you don’t want to miss!
October 17th, 2017 under This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

Every week, This Is Us is an emotional powerhouse and tonight at 9p on NBC, it delivers a very powerful episode.

Rebecca (Mandy Moore) realizes that her son, prepubescent Kevin (Parker Bates), has a fever when they go to the video store (it was store people went to to rent movies before there were streaming sites like Netflix), so she takes him and the other triplets to the doctor. Turns out that Kate (Mackenzie Hancsicsak) and him have Chickenpox. When Rebecca (Elizabeth Perkins) calls her mom to find out if she had the itchy condition when she was a kid, her mother takes that as invite to come over and help. The one thing Rebecca does not want or need especially after Jack (Milo Ventimilgia) gets the Chickenpox too. Tonight we learn why the two women do not get along and Rebecca finally has it out with her mom in a very powerful scene. A scene acted so brilliantly by Moore, it reconfirms my feelings towards her as one of the greatest actresses of her generation.

Since tonight’s episode is not a standalone, we will also get stories from the present day about the other characters as well. We learn more about Kevin (Justin Hartley) than we ever knew. Last week, he hurt his knee while filming a movie with Sylvester Stallone and this week it starts with Brian Grazer wanting to see what his injury he looks like. It is bad, so the producer tell his actor he has to have someone look at it. Therefore, Kevin goes to the doctor and she tells him he needs a procedure to fix it causing him to be off his feet for a while. The production says they will wait for him, but for how long. He is nervous that he will lose the biggest role of his career and will risk his knee to get back to work. When Toby (Chris Sullivan) confronts him about this, Kevin explains why this is all so important to him. Be prepared to have the tissues ready because it is going to be a heartbreaking moment. Kevin’s biggest one so far and about time, he had his episode.

Toby is not only dealing with Kevin, he is also dealing with his sister Kate (Chrissy Metz). She is determined to lose weight for her big Bar Mitzvah singing debut. She will do anything to fit into her dress, and Toby is worried about her. Does he have a reason to be?

Finally, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and his wife Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) are dealing with a new problem with their foster child. Deja (Lyric Ross) has not washed her hair in two weeks and it is smells disgusting. When another girl tells Deja that on a family outing, Beth kindly explains to her that they need to do something about it. As Beth combs out Deja’s hair, she learns a secret about the girl and shares it with Randall. Randall talks to Deja about it, and she is not happy that Beth shared the information with Randall. What will the ramifications be over this disclosure?

Like I said, tonight’s episode bring the powerful along with the emotional. What I did not tell you is that you MUST watch the episode all the way through because the finale few seconds will bring a surprise that no one saw coming and we will all be talking about it tomorrow. It is as big of a shock as when we found out that the Pearson house burned down and that is probably how Jack died. But I have said too much!

UPDATE: I forgot to mention, that tonight’s remarkable episode was directed by Thirtysomething’s Ken Olin, who masterfully put together an hour of television that tugs at our heartstrings.


Rocky causes things to be Rocky on This Is Us, The Mick goes to jail
October 10th, 2017 under Fox, This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

For weeks we have heard that Sylvester Stallone was going to be on This Is Us, and tonight on NBC at 9p he makes his debut. Let me tell you he is completely lovable on this episode and it will make you want to be friends with him!

But before we get to that, Kevin (Justin Hartley) brings Kate (Chrissy Metz) to the set of his new movie and they meet Mr Stallone. While Kevin works on his lines, Kate talks to Sylvester Stallone and reveals what a fan their dad is of his movies. That causes the actor to bond with her. When it is time to film, Stallone brings that up to Kevin and it throws him off. Now Kevin and Kate are fighting.

While the twins are fighting, 40-somethings Jack (Milo Ventimilgia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) are trying to make love. She wants to get things back to where they were before that night. Will that happen?

Then Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) finally get a foster child, who is more like a teen. She is not that they wanted and they are not what she wanted. Will they send her back?

It is another emotional ride on This Is Us tonight and that is why we love this drama more and more every week.

Also at 9p, but on Fox is The Mick. Sabrina’s (Sofia Black-D’Elia) mom (Tricia O’Kelley) is trying to get in touch with her daughter, but she keeps ignoring the calls. So Mickey (Kaitlin Olson) takes the family for a day trip to the prison where their parents are. Sabrina and Mickey go to visit Poodle. While Chip (Thomas Barbusca) and Ben (Jack Stanton) go with Jimmy (Scott MacArthur) to visit their dad (Laird Macintosh). Prison has not been good to him and Chip wants to fix things. Meanwhile, Poodle wants to fix things with her daughter, but Mickey is the one who wants things to be fixed between her sister and her.

What happens next, is something you will only see on The Mick. Therefore be prepared to laugh at things you should not. That and to declare that Jack Stanton is the cutest kid on television!


Hey Sterling K Brown, is that your hand in your pocket?

Sterling K Brown posed in such a way that you cannot help but to look at his crotch. It is like the This Is Us star is saying this is me. Tell me I am not the only staring at his Emmy?


Will Kevin become a dad on This Is Us this season?
September 27th, 2017 under This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

Alexandra Breckenridge, who plays Kevin’s ex-wife and current girlfriend on This Is Us, is very pregnant in real life with her second child, but will we see her having a baby on the show too?

She told People, “We’re still filming, and they have tricks and different clothes to hide stuff, and you can stand behind a counter and frame halfway up.” Then she added, “It hasn’t been too bad.” I say too bad they are not writing in her pregnancy because I think it is the storyline that Kevin needs to stop being so self involved.


What caused Sterling K Brown’s earth to move in bed?

A post shared by Sterling Brown (@sterlingkbrown) on

Yesterday at 11:21p, Los Angeles had a 3.6 earthquake that startled its residents including Sterling K Brown. The actor was in bed with his wife, Ryan, when it happened and immediately took to his phone to record this video. Not only did he confirm it was a quake, he also talked about winning his second Emmy the night beforehand. He is not upset that they stupidly played him off because he was able to finish his speech and thank his wife once again. Something she is more than happy to accept. Although when it comes to the quake, that is a whole different story.

Now had This Is Us won on Sunday, that rattler would have been because of everyone in Hollywood jumping up and down for Dan Fogelman and the drama. I am happy that Brown won, I just wish that the beloved show won more than just one major award. It deserves Emmy gold!
