  1. S03.E09: The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning

    He was definitely good at getting his message across but, yes, he's been over his head from the start. And, knowing Randall, it was predictable that upon hearing it's hopeless that it would only serve to strengthen his resolve. Instead of the predictable, I was really hoping he would reassure Beth that he could still be active in the community, trying to make a difference by attending council meetings (when it fit their schedule) and continue working to help those in the building they own and their community.

    Totally! I thought he was going to hold a town hall right then and there - and wouldn't be stopped.

    Possibly. I kind of got the impression that, when they didn't react at first, she thought she had to say something to soften the blow so she pretended with the "maybe" thing. But I definitely got that she didn't want it to become a "thing" between them and her and thankfully, they got that.

    She's gay. She came out to her parents. And they were great about it.

    Well, Tess now knows she can't trust Kate with her innermost secrets. So, Beth called marriage. And Beth placing a pillow and neatly folded sheets beside the couch? Seriously? Isn't that just a little too 50's for Beth? I'd rather she took that entire bottle of wine (and another) into their room and locked the door. She was that mad.
  6. S03.E07: Sometimes

    Beth knows. https://variety.com/2018/tv/features/this-is-us-season-3-sometimes-melanie-liburd-zoe-kevin-past-interview-1203027703/ If Zoe is a victim of a heartbreaking past, would it have not made more sense that Beth would want to protect Zoe by warning her about Kevin rather than want to protect Kevin by warning him about Zoe? Yes, I know she was warning Kevin about Zoe's maneating, however under these circumstances, I think Beth would feel for Zoe, knowing why she maneats. I agree that that's a lot to give one (new) character - she's not looking for a serious relationship - she's concerned about embarking on a mixed race relationship - she was abandoned by her mother - she was abused by her father. And yet still I get the impression there's more to this story.

    A little confused here. Did we just see, in this episode, the scene shown to us at the end of the S2 finale, in March, when on screen it said "one year later" - the scene where Kate tells bedridden Toby that she called his doctor about his meds? Is it a year later now? I have no problem if now it's one year later (the magic of television etc.), and I get that the show jumps all over the past and into the future, but I always thought the present played out in real time (as much as possible). For example, Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes are timely. This was the right episode to remind me how much I love the Teenage Big Three. The kids who play them - wow those kids can really act. I may not have liked how Miguel was treated but I was blown away by the acting. Teen Randall conveys so much through his expressions without having to say a word.

    I think there's a reasonably good chance Kevin's quest will result in the soap opera clichéd discovery of offspring. Although very brief, it looked to me like there was an exchange of a somewhat meaningful glance between Jack and the little boy's mother.
  9. S03.E04: Vietnam

    Oh, I totally agree with you. I don't care either. I have seen the two things I ever needed to see about him. 1. The black eyes on Jack and Nicky's mom. Eyes. Plural. 2. Jack getting her the fuck out of there.
  10. S03.E04: Vietnam

    Not an exciting episode, but solid on insight and backstory. "Christ's sake clean up your toys." That's all the abusive son of a bitch had to say to his kids when he got home. Yeah, hope you trip over one of them in the dark and fucking kill yourself. I don't care why or when he started drinking or why or when he became abusive. Easy to see why Jack feels so responsible for Nicky.. and others, all his life. And we see why Jack died suddenly. His poor heart couldn't handle the high levels of smoke inhalation. Those old white men in the white office, announcing the young men they would send off to war. May it never happen again.
  11. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    She doesn't have to do anything physically violent to be a sociopath. I don't think those whose lives have been adversely affected (or completely destroyed) by one would agree with you in general.
  12. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    I think you may have just described in a nutshell the clinical definition of the term "female sociopath".
  13. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    No. I just think she sees a source of supply for a while.
  14. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    I'm aware of the difference. I don't know that Beth would have bothered to sit someone down to warn them about someone who is simply self involved or somewhat selfish, especially if the person she's warning is somewhat selfish too. Beth's concern seemed to go a little beyond that. I disagree that Kevin is selfish. While selfishness is a trait of an addict, I don't think sober Kevin is selfish. He's a sweet guy, and that makes him a target.
  15. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    That could very well be. However, my point was that she wasn't on board for anything related to this monumental event in Kevin's life until something came up that was of interest to her and could possibly benefit her. She even seemed to brush it off when he talked about it - not even looking at him. She is dating Kevin, seemed uninterested, and was refusing to be there for him for any of it*. After saying no to everything, she also said no when invited to accompany him to his radio interview - until learning exactly whose radio show it was, then suddenly she was all in, which made me think that she cares only for herself (self interest without concern for others - a sociopathic characteristic). I think it is possible to be supportive of someone else without losing yourself. She certainly does not strike me as the type that would allow herself to "get sucked in" to being anyone's Girlfriend and not being her own person. If she really doesn't like what he does to the point that she feels unable to be slightly supportive, she can get out at any time. As much as Rebecca wanted to be her own person, I don't believe she would have completely snubbed events in Jack's life that were of great importance to him. Beth warned Kevin about her and that's just my take on it. * Yes - I know she was "busy" and "couldn't make it", but she sure freed herself up quickly when there was something of interest to herself.
