As a general rule, we're inclined to dread the impending arrival of Armageddon. It just does not sound like a fun time at all. However, given that it provides an opportunity for David Tennant and Michael Sheen to team up, we're willing to keep an open mind. It turns out that's a good call, because the two stars of the new Amazon Prime Video series, Good Omens, are a perfect match as a demon and angel trying to prevent the end of the world. It's up to an angel and a demon to save everyone. (pic via imdb.com) Based on... Read more →


If you need a quick break from the raging dumpster fire that is the country these days, the Lonely Island guys have just the thing for you. No idea what inspired this, but they've released a new Netflix special called, "The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience." The premise is simple: What would it look and sound like if the infamous "Bash Brothers," also known as Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire, released a rap album in 1988? The answer is a messed up, pretentious, and tremendous 30 minutes that you'll love. Andy Samberg is Canseco, and Akiva Schaffer is McGwire. The two... Read more →


One of the biggest stories of the 2018 election cycle was the unusual number of political outsiders who took on Democratic incumbents and other establishment figures in primary challenges. This group of progressive candidates took on powerful political machines and scored several high profile wins in the process (like Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, for example.) It was a loud statement: It's no longer good enough to proclaim you represent everyone when your actions say different, regardless of your party affiliation. A slice of this movement is chronicled in the new Netflix documentary, Knock Down The House. (out now)... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! It's time, folks. The season finale is here. Will we finally get an answer to the Barbara Morgan mystery? Yes, yes we will. However, there's another, perhaps bigger, secret to discuss. Actually, there's a lot packed into this episode, so let's get down to it. Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: Gary gets the final opening voice-over of the season. That makes sense - in some ways, he feels like the narrator of this show. He's spent the season looking after all of his friends since Jon's death, so he should get the last intro. Eddie and Maggie... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back for another discussion about "A Million Little Things." We've only got two episodes left in season one. (Or is it already season two? More on that in a bit.) This week's show gives us a little stalking, a look at the power of faith (however you define it), and a number of people feeling invisible. Let's jump right in... Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: Rome gets the opening voice-over this week. It seems like whoever gets this spot gets a lot of attention in the episode, so we're off to a good start. We're assuming Drea de... Read more →


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. Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: Gary doing the voice-over talking about mysteries during the... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back for another discussion of the latest episode of A Million Little Things! Last week felt a lot like a season finale, so we're interested to see how the show rebuilds its momentum for its final month. The commercials and other social media have implied this week will be Ashley's reckoning. Will we also finally learn who Barbara Morgan is and how she fits into this story? Let's chat... Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: We've seen glimpses of a mystery woman with brown hair who has had several brief tense interactions with Ashley over the last few episodes.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back for another chat about A Million Little Things! Sorry we're late this week. The crazy weather messed up our viewing plans, but we're back on track now. Before we go any further, ICYMI, show creator DJ Nash tweeted that the season finale is on February 28, so mark your calendars. There's still no word about a season 2 yet, but we'll deal with that later. For now, let's talk about this week's episode... Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: As the episode title indicates, we're getting a look at everyone's lives the day before Jon Dixon took his... Read more →


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 →
