Our friend Brian recently introduced us to the YouTube series, Hot Ones. The show is hosted by Sean Evans who interviews his guest while the two of them eat increasingly hot chicken wings. After only a handful of episodes, we're hooked. The segments are roughly 25-30 minutes long, and they're a combination of celebrity interview and endurance test which ends up becoming a sort of performance art. Evans has a relaxed presence about him. He asks his guests interesting questions about their personal lives, careers, and Instagram posts, and the celebrities seem eager to engage, while nervously making jokes about... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Before we talk about this week's episode, we want to say a quick congratulations to everyone who works on "A Million Little Things" on being renewed for a second season. The show clearly got a ratings bump when it moved to Thursday nights, and we're glad to see the network noticed it. Now, we're heading into the final stretch of season one, and in a show filled with secrets, this week was Regina's chance to reveal a major one of hers. Let's discuss.

Hi everyone, Welcome back! We hope you had a good holiday season since the last time we were here to chat about A Million Little Things. Hopefully you all remembered the new day and time for the show. ABC must be feeling good about it to put it right after Grey's Anatomy. Let's jump in and discuss the latest chapter of this ever-growing mystery. Warning: Spoilers Ahead Observations: We start right off the bat with John taping an apology for abandoning...Barbara? So, is that his first wife or a daughter? As the last few weeks of promos have emphasized, we... Read more →

Dennis Eckersley is a man who was meant for the spotlight. He's a combination of immense talent and a sense of flair that has served him well in his career, both as a Hall of Fame pitcher and now a TV baseball analyst. His life has been a journey that's had some dramatic highs and lows, both on and off the field, and he's adapted to the changes and come out on the other side somehow even cooler than before. You can see for yourself in the new MLB Network documentary titled Eck: A Story of Saving. The 62-minute documentary... Read more →

Christmas season has arrived, and it brings plenty of challenges for our group of friends. Warning: Spoilers Ahead Observations: Raise your hand if you've ever been in trouble because of a dream your significant other had, or vice-versa. Yeah, same here. The person who had the dream understands it didn't really happen, but you're still screwed for a while. We're guessing Rome's libido issues are related to his anti-depressants, and we find out later we were right. Stabilizing your mental and emotional health can come with some side effects. The scenes with Katherine and Theo are terrific. The two have... Read more →

Gary is marking his one-year anniversary of being in remission, but what should be a happy event brings up a lot of anger, as the members of this group have complicated bereavement issues to process. Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: It's nice to see Jon back in the picture since he's been gone for a few episodes. Of course he was there when Gary was getting his chemo treatments. Gary doesn't like looking at a blank wall in the hospital? Jon gets a picture to hang on the wall. We still don't know all that much about Mr. Dixon at this... Read more →

Welcome back, everyone! We hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. It's been a couple of weeks since we saw this crew, and all of their problems were solved during the break! Just kidding, they're a mess as this week's episode of A Million Little Things touches on the anguish people sometimes face when they feel helpless to stop the loss of a loved one. Let's discuss... Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: We start with Maggie pretty clearly dreaming as she's facing a plane crash with a guy named "Chad," who's drinking while he's flying the aircraft.

Our staff is old enough to remember when Adam Sandler movies were huge events. The Saturday Night Live star's early film career took off like a rocket with Billy Madson, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, and The Waterboy. Sandler seem poised to dominate the box office for many more years to come. However, as time went on, the bad projects started arriving, and they just didn't seem to stop. The New Hampshire native eventually became the featured star of The Razzies year after year, although it never seemed to hurt his paycheck. We eventually moved on to other entertainers, but...
