    S03.E15: The Waiting Room

    Completely agree. I've honestly struggled with the last 3 episodes. It's like TPTB are trying to stretch a small amount of narrative into the back end of the season. For me the last good episode was Nicky and I wasn't even a huge fan of the Vietnam storyline. I had a headache and was stressed out at the end of this episode. Definitely not enjoyable.

    Mine definitely did. We had over 800 graduates and you could get four tickets each. My brother graduated in 2001, 8 years after me, and had over 1000 graduates. Huge suburban Philadelphia high school.

    And drinking, apparently, as a diabetic. I'm type 1 and I don't drink. My dad is type 2 and drinks, but it does cause issues. Although, like my dad, Nicky appeared to only be consuming scotch, low sugar. It's not like Nicky was drink sugar filled wine.

    In the thanksgiving episode with Pilgrim Rick Jack mentions that his parents are dead. We know his dad died summer of 1989. So yeah, she must have died before they were 9.

    Agreed. I'm loving Kevin now! Saving the show for me.

    S03.E08: Six Thanksgivings

    All I have to say about this episode (that I put off watching for two weeks!) is that those showrunners will try just about anything to put Ron Cephus Jones in an episode. It's starting to appear awfully contrived. Do we know the same family?? I taught a child in this very situation. 3 adopted from China, all special needs. Many furry critters. But three bio kids. Hmmm. Perhaps I remember wrong? It was an unusual situation. The mom was wonder mom for sure. Yeah. Miguel's kids are my age. In 1980 at Froggys during the super bowl Shelly was talking about having a six yr old, my age in 80'. I always remembered their ages for this reason. That Miguel and Shelly got an earlier start having kids, like my parents (who are the same age as Jack and Rebecca plus a yr each). I married mine. ;0) just sayin' Howard University

    Oh. My. God. And someone just started a fire on Sunday, I think, when a billboard exploded. Seriously. When my siblings and I were born you couldn't even find out. Oh, the horror. Sorry, just society these days baffles me.

    So did a friend from high school. Got pregnant later in life (we're 44, baby is three) and splashed the pink innards of the cake all over social media. She was saying how very surprised she was, but I was like, 'but you must have known to order the correct cake for the party. How would the bakery know?' Never once occurred to me that the doctor gives the couple an sealed envelope to pass onto the bakery. Duh! Clearly I've never been pregnant.

    Ugh. so much to digest. I really wanted to watch it again but my husband deleted it. I normally delete them immediately so I don't blame him. My thoughts, for what they're worth: Getting kind of bored with Nicky in Vietnam Kevin and Zoe in Vietnam is so calming to watch. Finally seeing chemistry between these two. They seem to be close friends in real life, Justin (gorgeous man) and Chrishell, his wife, do stuff w Melanie. Saw Melanie on Access Hollywood, really starting to like her. The guy who plays Nicky appeals to me for some reason. Also love Griffin Dunne. I figured Nicky was alive, could've gone either way for me. So. Frigging. Tired. Of Randall. Of course he pulled off an emotional, heroic debate. Of course he'll "win". Thinking Brown will get in trouble, be found out, get sick, die, etc. and have to leave. This can't be good. The young actress who plays Tess is outstanding. I could literally feel her emotions. I'm struck by the resemblance between the older actress that plays Tess and Eris. Hated Beth saying, "No matter what". Okay guys, correct me if I'm wrong here but didn't Randall in episode 1/season 1 say on the soccer field, "That's my little bull duke!" ?? Tess is only ten? I knew "The Twenties" took place in 2008, but it just hit me that she is ten. Looks, acts older. Sad we may not be seeing Randall's campaign manager again. So cute. Come back! No time for Toby and Kate, but not surprised by baby Jack. The cake looked green. I love cake to distraction, but...M&M's? Too sweet. Mark my words. Rebecca's aches and pains are going to come back. Chekhov's gun. My mom says MS is diagnosed as a teen, twenty something. But was Annette Funacello's (sp?) Richard Pryor's? Weren't they older? Love how we're seeing Rebecca's life from eight or so, until probably 85. She was born in 1950. Unpopular opinion, I think she's just beautiful. Like a doll. The whole family is attractive, gorgeous (except Toby and Randall, sorry! His body is hot...) Beth is stunning... Love Beth's 2033 look! They gave her a slight, slight paunch. I loved her styling. I was honestly getting bored with the show. I'd missed the last two episodes. I watched this one later and admittedly spoiled myself. But the music and scenes at the end, despite clearly being manipulating, drew me right back in. There is something menacing and dark about the future. The way they are filming it, the lighting (much like they filmed 1970 in a hazy, yellow hued tone), is darker. Where is Annie? Is she a ballerina? Dead? Where is Kate and her son? Kevin and Zoe?? I watched St. Elsewhere. Yeah, all in the mind of a child with autism who imagined his blue-collar grandfather and dad as doctors in a hospital inside a snowglobe. Would not be the least bit surprised if they are telling her tales of the past. Nicky filling in Jacks childhood and Vietnam. There is gonna be a twist like that, MMW. Edit: spelling

    Absolutely. I'm going through it now as I recently left my teaching position of ten years. The red tape is brutal. Plus there there are finger prints, criminal background checks, child abuse checks, essays... That's how my nana died. It can happen. It burned a huge hole in her stomach.

    That's the popular opinion on Twitter tonight. Sterling even retweeted somebody who tweeted just that. And OOPS! I'm in the middle of reading another Dan interview in Entertainment Online and it's actually 15 years in the future, so he's actually 53. Lol.

    Bradford PA. My husband used to hunt there with his best friend from Penn State, back in the 90s. Didn't watch this episode (I've been spoiling myself all night, heh), but someone posted a picture of the envelope on Twitter and I immediately recognized the town. Apparently it's 13 years, 2031. I heard that from folks on Reddit back in March. Rebecca would be 81.
