This is Us - I did watch. Randall is such a goof ball. Did kate really think that telling Toby that way would make him be less enthusiastic ? LOL

This is us - Randall trying to be cool was hilarious. See that Sears? Used to be a Kohl's. LOL (probably got stores wrong) Maybe Kate was worried about telling Toby BECAUSE he'd be enthusiastic. But I think she's just worried about the risk pregnancy more than anything. That episode got me in the feels the most this season. Probably all the "being a good dad" stuff near the end. :) But Jack has a surprise brother?? Hmmmm

I'm caught up on DC CW shows. Caught up on Mr. Robot (ugh more current day politics integration!)...still pretty good stuff though. Caught up on Designated. AHS I'll finish the latest tomorrow. Watched Goldbergs, MF. Goldbergs was the 100th ep I believe! Crazy since I just binged through 90ish then. lol

This is Us- I know ! Where'd that brother come from ?!? Deja continues to break my heart. Kevin continues to be a jerk. LOL

We are having a super hero weekend - because we are 3 behind in Supergirl. Flash. Legends. Also still behind in Designated and AHS. Think 2 behind on Good Place now. Being away for 2 weekends in a row has killed me.

Started a few new show - dumped most of them. Still enjoying Inhumans and Gifted

This is Us - I think the brother was meant to surprise us since he's never been brought up before. Part of Jack's shady past which may have led to drinking issues/eventual death. Agreed on Deja and Kevin. Still Kevin had some great moments. The Kevin/Randall stuff outside the bathroom was great. lol

Sounds like a fun weekend! But also sounds like a lot of work to catch up on everything! I understand that "stress" of being behind though. It's enough to just give up! Good luck on your weekend catchup adventure!

I'm still with Gifted, still can't find time for Inhumans. Oh and by the way...

Stranger Things 2 - Released today. That may have to be a slow burn for us. I've read it's a "bloated sequel" lol But some gave it high praise. We'll see!

BTW - got my Thor, Justice League and Last Jedi (already mentioned this) tickets all booked! I'll go on a limb and predict one of them will be phenomenal (but whilst saying this still trying to keep my expectations at bay. Not doing well). The others I'm just along for the ride. :)

Stranger - been hearing it is really good. Def waiting on that one - Tivo and the Netflix app are difficult the weekend that stuff comes out - high volume traffic I guess.

Just read that the pre-sale tickets for Justice are huge. I will be so busy endo of Nov thru dec I doubt I will get to the movies 3 times. I host the family Christmas this year - 16 guests - so will have so much to do leading into the holiday. I will def try to get to Jedi though

Mike V. said...

Stranger - Netflix on Tivo in general is not a great experience. Apple TV, PS4 and my phone/tablet are much better. lol I do have a tivo Mini in the bedroom and that surprisingly works pretty well.

Justice - Well hopefully they can deliver this time! With Joss Whedon helping out Snyder in the end (a shame what happened with his family) maybe it'll be a combination of what each of them do best. Wow...should be fun with Christmas. Good luck with that! I'll probably only get to these 3 movies unless the kids want to see that creepy new PIXAR film. lol (CoCo) There is a Holiday Frozen short at the beginning so maybe that'll be a big enough sell. lol
