Speechless has twice the voice tonight!
March 14th, 2018 under Speechless. [ Comments: none ]

ABC is airing two episodes of Speechless tonight starting at 8p and it is twice the joy!

For the first episode, Maya (Minnie Driver) gets jury duty. While you and I would hate it, she is so excited for the opportunity. Why? Because she gets away from her family, of course. Only problem, her arch nemeses (Sarah Chalke) also got picked. Now the two of them try to get the judge to dismiss the other one. He decides to keep them both on the jury. What happens next? You have to see it to believe it.

JJ (Micah Fowler) meanwhile, decides to try dating. He sets up dates at a coffee shop and he has Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) help him out if needed. They come up with a plan that if he does not like the girl, he will toss his coffee to the ground. How many coffees get tossed the ground?

Finally, Ray (Mason Cook) feels that is father (John Ross Bowie) is spending more time with Dylan (Kyla Kenedy) than him. Therefore, he tries to come up with new ways to win back his father’s love. Will it work?

Then at 8:30p, JJ gets to direct his first movie at school. Everyone has an opinion and his movie goes to hell. Will he get his horror movie back on track? Especially since Ray thinks being in the movie will help win Taylor back.

Dylan meanwhile finds out a secret about her mom when she watches a tape that she thinks is her parents wedding video. Why was her mom wearing a wedding dress for a man Dylan doesn’t know? Maya will do anything and everything to keep her secret. And I mean that.

Finally, Jimmy helps out his neighbor who is renovating his house. It all works well until it doesn’t. And when it doesn’t, it goes really bad. Really, really bad.

But what goes really, really good is these two episodes of Speechless. I love this show so much because not only is it funny, it helps to normalize cerebral palsy. Something that is so important for television do and they do it right.


Speechless’ Micah Fowler will be honored by United Cerebral Palsy of LA

One of the things I love most about Speechless, is not only the humor, but that they hired Micah Fowler, an actor, with Cerebral Palsy to play a character who has it. While a lot of shows would use an actor who does not have the disability, the ABC sitcom did not do that. Because of that casting, the program is helping to normalize the disorder and educate the viewers what it is like living with a family member who has it. Not only that it shows us that you can live a pretty normal life with CP.

Don’t take my word for it, United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles also believes it. That is why on March 11th, they are going to Fowler, who plays JJ Dimeo on the comedy. Fowler will be presented with the Trailblazer Award during UCPLA’s fourth annual Art of Care celebration.

Fowler is not only educating people on the small screen, he also does it when the camera is not on him. That is why I think he truly deserves this honor and hopefully he will get many more.

One of the ways to make that happen is to watch Speechless every Wednesday at 8:30p, so ABC will renew for another season. Plus, it really is a funny show with an important message.


Speechless’ Michah Fowler and Kyla Kenedy have seen better days!

A post shared by Micah Fowler (@micahdfowler) on

Yesterday on Speechless, the DiMeo kids took their parents van out for a joy ride. What do teens do when they have a car of their own for the day? They run over stuff to see what happens when it is smushed. Some of those things were ketchup and mustard and the plan was to have JJ and Dylan covered in the condiments. But for some reason the producers decided to scrap the scene only after Michah Fowler and Kyla Kenedy were covered with red and yellow stuff. How did they feel about? They wanted fries to go with all of that catsup. Who can blame them?

Now here is my plea, please watch this touching and funny comedy so that ABC doesn’t cancel it.


The Librarians are back on call and Speechless gets into the Christmas spirit
December 13th, 2017 under ABC, Jerry O'Connell/Rebecca Romijn, Speechless, TNT/TBS/TCM. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on TNT, The Librarians is finally back with two all-new episodes to save the world. Not from Donald Trump, but from magical artifacts falling into the wrong hands.

For example, during the 4th season premiere, someone has unearth one of the four cornerstones from the Library of Alexandria. If someone finds all four stones before Eve (Rebecca Romijn), Flynn (Noah Wyle), Jacob (Christian Kane), Ezekiel (John Harlan Kim) and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) do, then their library will be destroyed. Time is of the essence, and they have one major problem, they don’t know where any of the stones are hidden and there is no map detailing their location.

Thankfully, Jenkins (John Larroquette) knows someone who might be able to help them, since she hid the stones. But there is something else about her, she used to be Flynn’s old guardian before Eve and they also had love connection. Oh and Flynn thought she was dead. What will that mean for the future of Fleve? Especially since your saw their wedding in that sneak peek. But I have said too much.

The Librarians is the perfect mix of Sci-Fi, adventure and comedy all rolled into one show that you can watch with your family. How many shows like this can you do that with? And wait until you see next week’s Christmas themed episode.

Then at 8:30p but over on ABC, it is time for a DiMeo Christmas on Speechless. When Jimmy (John Ross Bowie) and Maya (Minnie Driver) are woken up by Dylan’s (Kyla Kenedy) snake, they did not know about, the family decides they want a dog. Well everyone but JJ (Micah Fowler), who would have to get the pup as a service dog since they are not allowed to own any animals at the house they are renting. He is busy with his film class, so he does not have time for a dog. Dylan goes behind his back to get the dog and when JJ finds out, he tells her he is going to get r-e-revenge on her. She is afraid, she is very afraid and she should be.

Also afraid of something is their brother, Ray (Mason Cook), wants to introduce his mom to his girlfriend’s mom. Taylor’s (Sedona James) mom (Sarah Chalke) and Maya have a history causing friction for everyone. Is this is the end of Raylor?

Finally, Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) makes the mistake of telling Jimmy that the store he is moonlights at is giving away free turkeys. Kenneth accidentally tells Jimmy how to break the system, so that he can get as many of the frozen bird as he wants. Kenneth knows it is a mistake because he knows the DiMeos, he just doesn’t realize how much of one until he opens the freezer door and several of them fall out of there since turkeys cannot fly. Why does Jimmy need all of those turkeys, you will just have to tune in to see.

Speechless is not your normal family show because the DiMeos are not perfect people, but they are the perfect family for each other. At the end of the day they take care of each other and that is a big part of making a good family sitcom. That and a lot of laughs, which every week they deliver. And the biggest selling point is they treat JJ like he is a normal kid and not like one who has Cerebral Palsy, and that alone makes this show very special to me with everything else is just grave on top.


Does this video make you want to date Speechless’ Cedric Yarbough?
December 6th, 2017 under ABC, Speechless. [ Comments: none ]

Cedric Yarbough recorded this video of him lip synching and dancing to Annibale E I Cantori Moderni’s Trinity (Titoli) and said this with the video, “(Yes, I’m bored. Someone date me.)” Therefore, does this video make you want to date the actor who leaves you Speechless every week? I say yes because that makes him a triple threat and who doesn’t love a triple threat?

Want to see him win his way to your heart through your stomach (by causing you belly laughs), then watch him on Speechless tonight and every Wednesday at 8:30p on ABC.
