Predictions for the “Younger” Series Finale: What I’m Dying to See and More!

Happy Saturday TV Fans! As we approach the series finale of Younger, there is quite a lot I want to see, but will we have time to address it all in the jam-packed finale?

**Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up with this series.**

Younger is such a fun show and I have honestly fallen in love with it over the years. There is this seamless balance between rom-com perfection and drama to keep you coming back for more. While the love triangle has been done over and over again, it somehow seemed fresh and new on this show. There are also these incredible moments of self-reflection and growth presented and the show really captures the essence of true friendship without becoming too cheesy in the process.

It seems like the right time to end the series, but the final season has had its ups and downs. Will it end things on a high note? I’m remaining positive and I hope we can get back some of the magic from the earlier seasons in the final episode.

So, what can we expect from the series finale?

I really want to see Liza and Kelsey venture out on their own. We know that Charles is finally impressed with what they are creating with Inkubator, but maybe it’s time for them to step away from the company and branch out on their own.

Of course there is now some drama tangled up in this. After Kelsey agrees to let Rob show someone the pitch, it gets forwarded all over the place and eventually winds up with Quinn. We know she is going to make some waves here. 

I think that Charles took too long to really believe in his employees and the beginning of the series started off with Liza having to lie about her age to land a job. Well, she has certainly proven herself and embraced her age and identity, so I think it’s about time for her to make it on her own with Kelsey.

I’m rooting for you ladies!

What about our favorite supporting characters?

So, I appreciate the amount of time we have been spending on Maggie and Lauren this season. But, what about Diana? We know that Diana and Zane will not be featured that much in the final season, but we have to see Diana in the final episode…right?

We brought back Max into Lauren’s life and Maggie has really found her identity again through her work, but what about Josh?

Now that we have been shoved back into the Charliza direction again, it seems like Josh has been mostly filler this season. There was a part of me that wanted Liza to end up with him, but now what’s next for him?

He’s a great father and he has his work, but I really feel like we mostly used Josh as a prop for other characters and he deserves a lot more than that.

Is Rob right for Kelsey?

Images courtesy of Hulu

I think Kelsey deserves a lot better and she is making some poor decisions when it comes to Rob. I don’t really agree with what she did to Clare. She should have been honest and upfront with her from the start. After that argument, it seems like she is moving too quickly with Rob.

I spent a lot of time falling in love with her and Zane and I will be extremely disappointed if this is truly the end of their relationship. I am hoping that Zane will also somehow get a hold of the pitch to save the day, but I really don’t know at this point.

I actually really liked the competitive drive between these two and I feel like Kelsey has lost a bit of herself in the final season. Fingers crossed that it will all work out!

Is Charliza end game?

Images courtesy of Hulu

Honestly, I don’t know if I’m sold on this one. Sure, we have built up this epic love between them over the years, but I am really annoyed at Charles for rebounding with Quinn so quickly after Liza. Charles is a smart man and even though his ego was hurt by Liza’s answer, this seems like an annoying plot device thrown into the mix.

Nobody likes Quinn and she has been shady from the start, so why would Charles go to her with open arms? We brought Pauline back to stir things up and I honestly didn’t care. Liza has been so strong on her own and I was sort of hoping that she would end the series without a man, but maybe have it implied that things weren’t off the table for her and Josh in the future.

Now, that has been thrown out the window and we are left with a cheesy Charliza happy ending. It’s not that I don’t like these two together. I just don’t like how they were split apart and I think that we should really question Charles’s character after his relationship with Quinn. 

That being said, I’m going into the series finale with an open mind. This show has always been really entertaining and I will miss watching it. I hope we get a few surprises during the finale and some much needed guest stars, but we’ll have to wait and see!

If you haven’t watched Younger yet, you can catch up now on Paramount Plus and Hulu!

Spoiler-Free Review of “WandaVision” on Disney+: Delightfully Intriguing

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“My wife and her flying saucers…”

WandaVision premiered on Disney+ on January 15th 2021 with the first two episodes available to stream now. There will be nine episodes in total that will air weekly. The series stars Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and Kathryn Hahn. Each episode runs for approximately 30-35 minutes. 

If you are familiar with MCU, then you know that this series may initially seem strange and misplaced based on the events that occurred in the Avenger films. Nonetheless, we are presented with a sitcom series featuring Wanda (Scarlet Witch) and her husband, Vision. Things are not as they seem as we find ourselves trapped within a television-centric nostalgia that is not without its own unique charm and mystery.

Here is the trailer:

WandaVision may be the most unique release we have seen yet in MCU, paying its respect to timeless sitcom classics while presenting us with clever Easter eggs and the promise to unfold the mystery at hand, but does it do enough to keep viewers coming back for more? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 1

Images courtesy of Disney+

Undeniable chemistry.

While I always noticed a spark between these two in the films, there really wasn’t enough time to devote to it with everything else going on. WandaVision gives us the chance to finally see just how charming these two can be together and I have to say that it’s even better than I could have imagined.

The love is believable and even though it’s clear that things are not as they seem, the connection between the characters keeps us invested in their well-being. Seriously, these two are adorable!

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 2

Images courtesy of Disney+

Welcomed TV nostalgia.

The show really owes a lot to series like The Dick Van Dyke Show, Bewitched, and I Love Lucy, embracing all of these classic shows effortlessly without becoming stale in the process. I especially enjoyed the second episode and was actually really laughing at several parts, allowing myself to treat this show as what it is meant to be…a sitcom.

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 3

Images courtesy of Disney+

Fantastic supporting characters and guest stars.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum, Emma Caulfield was fantastic and I always love watching Kathryn Hahn, who nailed the nosy neighbor vibe with flair. Pretty much every guest star has really added to the show and based on the cast listed, I can’t wait to see everyone else.

The Cons:

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 4

Images courtesy of Disney+

Strange and confusing.

I’m all for strange and confusing and there have already been several well placed Easter eggs and hints at a bigger mystery going on, but it is really confusing at times. Perhaps we will get to everything in the later episodes, but I think that the series can take a page out of Pleasantville’s book and give the audience just a little bit more.

That being said, I am intrigued by the mystery and love the concept of being trapped inside a television sitcom (if that’s what is actually happening here), but I think some viewers may be turned off and lose interest if we aren’t given more hints soon.

So am I in or out?

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 5

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m in!

This show is really different and unique, but it also presents us with so much charming nostalgia. I can’t wait to watch the next episodes and I think that as long as the mystery picks up, this show will develop into something truly fantastic!

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on WandaVision in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 8: “The Algorithm”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 8, we learned that sometimes we need to rely on a mathematical non emotional answer to find out what to do next, but perhaps the gang is over thinking it.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In Wednesday night’s episode, “Paddy’s Has a Jumper,” the gang’s chance at getting Fish and Chips is interrupted by a potential jumper on their roof, which leads to a debate on whether or not they should get involved.  Meanwhile, Frank crosses paths with a familiar face, and Cricket adds in his two cents.

My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 8 are:

5

“What we need is an algorithm.”

After finding out that a man named Brian O’Brien is about to jump off the roof of Paddy’s Pub, the gang wonders if they should really get involved.  Mac (Ronald McDonald) claims that he would kill himself too with a name like that, but it looks like Dennis really wants to create an accurate algorithm that will tell them what to do next.

The Algorithm:

Could He?

+

Would He?

+

Should We?

=

Answer!

Seems simple enough.  Let’s see how this goes.

4

“Where did you get that egg?”

Charlie seems super enthusiastic about getting his point across and he even decides to use his very own diorama with a hard boiled egg to determine if Brian O’Brien would actually die from falling off of the building.

Charlie thinks that he will probably get a broken leg based on the demonstration, but Dennis reminds him that perhaps a hard boiled egg is not an accurate representation of the human head.

Dee decides to eat the egg and we learn that Charlie apparently took it out of a hole somewhere, so she may be eating a rat’s egg right now…

3

“Why the hell are you wasting a perfectly good casaba melon?”

Apparently Frank keeps one in a safe for personal needs, but the gang decides that this should give them a better indication of whether or not Brian O’Brien would fall and die.  Cricket shows up and seems to really be more interested in obtaining the casaba melon, but he does weigh in on the conversation.

Dennis reminds everyone that sometimes it’s more about how someone falls, thinking of Maureen Ponderosa’s death, as the gang hilariously reminds him that he pushed her…

2

“I would love to interview you!”

Meanwhile, Frank is focused on getting his melon back and decides to say that he is Brian O’Brien’s father, which gets him an interview with…

Jackie Denardo!

Speaking of melons…

Cue the music!

The lovely and full breasted Jackie Denardo is back, played by Jessica Collins.  Jackie Denardo has appeared in episodes:  The Storm of the Century (Season 7, episode 6) and The Gang Saves the Day (Season 9, episode 6).

Dennis has quite the crush on her and the same music accompanied her when he first crossed paths with her in the store, which led to an extremely awkward conversation between them.

Frank realizes that he now has the opportunity to rub this in Dennis’s face, as he continues to pretend to be the jumper’s father to get some screen time.

1

“We could become a hot spot for jumpers.”

Toward the end of the episode, the gang realizes that the jumper dying might actually be good for business, realizing that they can capitalize on it.  Cricket offers to push him, but the gang isn’t too crazy about calling it murder.

Before they can execute the plan, Brian O’Brien comes down from the roof to reunite with his father, but is more than disappointed when he comes face-to-face with Frank.

The gang gets their Fish and Chips and it’s back to their television show, which they now decide that they don’t really like anyway and perhaps the algorithm was wrong after all…

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 7: “The Gang Solves Global Warming”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 7, we learned that “when opinions meet facts, that’s when you get truth.”  Well maybe not, Mac, but we do learn how to beat the heat Sunny style!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In Wednesday night’s episode, “The Gang Solves Global Warming,” there is a major heat wave in Philadelphia and the gang attempts to keep cool while also protecting the environment.  I’m not so sure about some of their methods, but they keep the laughs coming along with some great heat wave music!  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 7 are:

5

“We’re actually helping our business and the environment.”

After hearing a warning on the news to keep the temperature at 76 degrees to conserve energy, the gang decides to keep the AC at Paddy’s Pub much cooler to attract more customers.  They actually bring in quite the crowd, but I’m not sure that they can say that this is also good for the environment.

Now that they have a lot of people inside, they will need to make sure they maintain the peace, but not everything goes according to plan when resources start running low…

4

“Since you want to walk the walk, why don’t you go get the ice?”

Dee is super excited to be sporting her Eco friendly shoes and is recording an Insta Story about “walking the walk.”  The gang is not sure who would ever watch this, but they tell Dee to head out to get some ice.

Dee is ready to record the journey with Charlie, which absolutely captured my attention, since Dee and Charlie episodes always make me laugh.  Let’s see how this goes…

3

“Global warming is the f*cking best!”

Frank and Dennis continue to lower the temperature at the bar, hoping to see some nips, but things get a little bit complicated when some of the workers from the fish factory show up.

After everyone starts dancing in their underwear, Frank is beyond thrilled and is not afraid to shout out his enthusiasm for global warming…

It’s getting hot in here for sure!

2

“I don’t want to wear trash on my head…”

This episode was absolutely hilarious and the Dee and Charlie moments were really outrageous.  Charlie continues to call out “cut” and “stop” while recording Dee’s Insta Story and their quest to go get ice is foiled several times, but they are not about to give up just yet.

After a failed attempt at a Ride Share, Dee is losing her patience, but Charlie is improvising his own Eco friendly fashion with a garbage bag and a pizza hat for shade. Charlie reminds Dee that they should just take the bus, as we get to witness Dee freaking out on the bus with the same bus rider from Season 4, Episode 6 (Mac & Charlie Die, Part 2)!

Here’s the original clip:

“I hate the bus!”

Once again, Sunny does an amazing job of bringing us some fun nostalgia without hitting us over the head with it. I loved this scene!

1

“God dammit, Charlie!”

At the end of the episode, Dee and Charlie finally show up and Dee is ready to show off her Insta Story, except Charlie literally just filmed Dee freaking out and yelling at people, which was the greatest thing ever.

Dee continues to yell, “Don’t say cut” at Charlie, which made the dynamic between these two even more hilarious.

This was probably my favorite episode of the new season so far and I can’t wait to see what they do next!

If you enjoyed some of the heat wave appropriate music in this episode, here are some of my highlights. Enjoy!

Glenn Frey – The Heat Is On (From “Beverly Hills Cop” Soundtrack)

Hot Blooded – Foreigner

Nelly – Hot In Herre (Official Music Video)

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 5: “The Gang Texts”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 5, we learned that it’s important for the gang to be on the same page, but things get complicated when they decide to try out group texting at the zoo.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In Wednesday night’s episode, “The Gang Texts,” the gang goes to the zoo, but everyone has their own agenda for the day.  Charlie and Mac want to go see the Meerkats and Dennis insists on seeing a lion feeding, so they decide to keep track of one another with a harmless group text.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 5 are:

5

“He’s stuck behind a woman driver and he wants to shoot himself.”

I mean, clearly that’s obvious from Frank’s use of emojis, which Charlie seems to have a talent for deciphering, but Mac has a lot more trouble keeping up with the group text.  Even though the gang wants to stick together at the zoo, it looks like they are going to all split up for now.  This should go well…

4

“Too late, Dee!”

“She sucks!”  Dee actually really tries to throw in some harmless insults along the way, but her text is always just a minute too late.  Dennis reminds her that speed is important in a comedy text, but Dee doesn’t give up and perhaps she will get the hang of it before it’s too late.  You got this, Dee!

3

“You’re dead to him.”

Mac is worried that Dennis is mad at him and decides to send him a block of text, asking if Dennis is ignoring him.  Dennis quickly responds with “K,” but Mac finds out that Dennis didn’t even read the text and just responded that way because he doesn’t care.  Dennis is really preoccupied with seeing the “ducking lion” after all.  Stupid auto correct!

2

“This is all fine…”

Mac is convinced that he has found a way to make things up to Dennis, claiming that he overheard someone say that they are going to sacrifice a goat to the lion.  Dennis thinks this is definitely some worthy “Jurassic Park shit” and seems up for it.  Only they wind up at the petting zoo and it’s clear that Mac has no idea what he is talking about.  It’s OK because Dennis says, “This is all fine…”

1

“The circle of life!”

Just when it seems like all hope is lost, the gang winds up together at the Meerkat display.  They each pop up in different bubbles while The Lion King’s “Circle of Life” plays in the background, which was probably the best part of the episode. 

Dee is also finally able to come in the clutch with her text and it seems like the gang is happy again.  Maybe they should stick to face-to-face interactions for a while though…

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia below in the comments section.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 4: “The Gang Chokes”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 4, we learned that sometimes it may seem like living life on the edge is worth it, but has the gang gone too far here chasing the rush?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In Wednesday night’s episode, “The Gang Chokes,” the gang goes out to dinner, but a quiet night quickly turns deadly, as a familiar hero shows up to save the day.  My top 5 moments from the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 4 are:

5

“Oh god…you people!”

Our favorite waiter from Guigino’s is back at a different restaurant and surprisingly the gang actually remembers him this time.  Now they claim that they can’t get away from him, which was beyond hysterical, bringing us some nostalgia from one of my favorite episodes of all time:  “The Gang Dines Out.”  I love how Mac even wears the exact same outfit with his slicked hair, which makes you wonder if he always wears this when they go out.

4

“I think he’s choking.”

Everything quickly gets out of hand when Frank starts choking; only the gang decides to all stare at him.  No one moves and it’s up to the waiter to save Frank’s life, while the gang watches with fascination.  Poor Frank!

3

“It blew my mind!”

After the incident, it clearly gets the gang thinking. Charlie shows up with an empty box of pizza at Mac and Dennis’s apartment, which is a nice gesture!  It’s after midnight and Dennis doesn’t want to hear about it, but Dee shows up too, claiming that she is now obsessed with getting a rush from nearly dying.  Dennis just wants to go to bed and Dee hilariously asks him if he’s 40 and he reminds her that they are the same age.  No matter what age they are, the laughs keep coming!

2

“What the hell are you doing in my home?”

Our favorite waiter gets some more screen time when Frank decides to break into his home, explaining that “it’s you and me against the world.”  Frank is grateful that the waiter saved his life and now he wants to spend some quality time together, but he has some interesting and creative ideas when it comes to getting rid of the waiter’s sick mother.  Frank taps into the waiter’s dream of going back to pilot school and it looks like this may be the start of a weird friendship, but things quickly go south for these two.

1

“I’ll always save you from now on!”

Mac reveals that he just wants Dennis to depend on him, as we learn that he has been poisoning him with an interesting shake mixed with pizza and soda.  Dee tells Mac that they will need to poison Dennis for real so that they can save his life, but they decide to try and poison Frank so they can make things right.

The plan doesn’t work out so well; however, as Dee ends up taking the poison herself.  The waiter is forced to save her life now as well and Dee wakes up explaining that it was “just lights out” and she no longer wants to chase the rush.

This was the first episode of season 14 that really had me laughing out loud.  I loved that the episode started off with some fun nostalgia, but then branched off into something completely different.  It’s been a while since I’ve laughed out loud at several parts and I’m hoping this trend continues!  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 3: “Dee Day”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 3, we were reminded that “preparation is the key to victory,” but what happens when the plan is thrown off by…Dee Day?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In Wednesday night’s episode, “Dee Day,” it’s finally Dee’s turn, as she gets a full day devoted to her.  Only the gang isn’t necessarily too thrilled about this, as they are plotting another scheme that requires their full attention.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 3 are:

5

“Who cares about her feelings?”

If you are a Sunny fan, then you will remember “Mac Day” (season 9, episode 5), when the gang was forced to go through an entire day doing whatever Mac wanted to do.  Well, the tables have now turned and it is Dee’s turn to shine, but everyone seems ready to forget a day devoted to Dee, but she’s still prepared to make it work no matter what.

As soon as Dee begins, she wants to talk about her feelings and of course, the gang decides to tune her out, focusing in on their own inner monologues.  After all, it’s not like they get to yell into the “Scream Pillow” anymore.

4

“Her characters suck!”

Dee hilariously decides to force Dennis, Charlie, Mac, and Frank to dress up as some of her former characters, which was actually really funny, but things get a little weird when they wind up on stage and she forces Charlie and Dennis to kiss.  Mac clearly feels left out, but when Frank gets on stage, he steals the show, finally releasing the clams.  Leave it to Frank to make something weird even weirder.

3

“I want to scream Bird!”

The gang is not allowed to make fun of Dee during Dee Day and she decides to take them all out bird watching.  Of course this makes the gang want to scream out “Bird” even more, but they are forced to swallow down their insults.  Keep it going, Dee!

2

“That’s what his soul looks like.”

Dee doesn’t hold anything back and explains that she wants Dennis to remove his make-up, but things get really interesting when Dennis walks in and looks like a completely different person.  Dennis is forced to kick game to a lady with this appearance and it clearly is a nightmare for him.  The gang points out that his pec has even been deflated, suggesting that perhaps the Golden God isn’t really that much of a god underneath all the lies and deception.

1

“You just insulted me on Dee Day.”

After the gang reveals that their ultimate plan was a success, caring more about getting a public urination act to pass by distracting the one female member of the board, Dee tries to explain that she is actually the one who executed everything, but of course they do not want to listen.

When the clock goes off, they start insulting Dee, but she has outsmarted them, turning back the clock, which means that they will be forced to endure another Dee Day and I have to say that they deserve it.  Go Dee!

Overall, this was another fun throwback to a fan favorite episode, but I’m still waiting for some crazy laugh out loud moments.  Hopefully we will get a Charlie centric episode soon!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 2: “Thunder Gun 4: Maximum Cool”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 2, all you really need to remember is “No hesitation.  No surrender.  No man left behind!”  Well, unless you are Charlie and you think that perhaps you really did leave someone behind.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In Wednesday night’s episode, “Thunder Gun 4:  Maximum Cool,” the gang is selected for a focus group, as they prepare to view a new movie coming out.  Initially the gang seems skeptical, but once they see the title…all bets are off.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 2 are:

5

“You’ve chosen wisely.”

In the beginning of the episode, the gang sits down for a movie screening, as they have been randomly selected to take part in a focus group.  The gang is ready to rip the movie apart…that is until the title comes up:  “Thunder Gun 4:  Maximum Cool.” 

Fans of the show will remember season 7, episode 11 (Thunder Gun Express), as the gang hilariously tries to make it to the showing of the greatest movie ever, dealing with a lot of obstacles along the way.  It’s safe to say that the gang is beyond excited to watch this, but they do have high expectations for the movie.

4

“Oh I think she sucks.”

After all the hype, the gang is somewhat confused by the new Thunder Gun movie and they ask, “Did they make Thunder Gun bad?”  The leader of the focus group does her best to go over the changes and the plot to get some answers out of the gang, but she has no idea what she is in for.

She looks to Dee, hoping to really get a female’s perspective, but Dee is not a fan of the strong female character approach, explaining that they should really just “bed em and dead em” so that she has no competition.

“The gratuitous nudity was a bit much.”

“F*ck you!”  I’m seriously still laughing over that response from Charlie, who is not pleased with this observation.  The gang seems to be most focused on the fact that there is “no dong” throughout the movie, explaining that it is really a trademark.

Dolph Lundgren hilariously plays “John Thundergun” in the film they are watching, which really made this so much more entertaining, but the gang almost loses it when they find out that the movie will be rated…PG-13.

“Save the dong…”

The gang decides to begin chanting “save the dong” to really get their point across, but Dee messes up the rhythm.  Come on, Dee!  Charlie consistently has no idea what is going on and it looks like the leader of the focus group is losing her patience with the gang, especially when they cannot grasp the concept of “passing the torch,” which includes John Thundergun literally passing a torch to his son to carry out the legacy.

“I am Thunder Gun.”

The gang decides that it is up to them to destroy it since the movie is such a disaster and they leak the film online before the release.  The mission is a success, as the movie is ultimately pulled, which leaves room for a better “Thunder Gun” movie to release in the future.

Overall, I thought this was a fun episode, especially since I really enjoyed the “Thunder Gun Express” episode back in season 7.  Dolph Lundgren fit in perfectly and really stole the show!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” season 14 episode 1 season premiere: “The Gang Gets Romantic”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the FXX network’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 1 season premiere, I learned that the gang has a softer side, really embracing what makes a rom-com truly special.  Although there seems to be some confusion on what a Meet Cute actually is.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “The Gang Gets Romantic,” Charlie and Frank place an ad for their luxurious Airbnb, which features sleeping in the same bed with them.  Meanwhile, Mac and Dennis try out their own version, and Dee tries to land a part as well, even though romantic leads are supposed to be likable.  My top 5 moments from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 episode 1 season premiere are:

5

“It’s a good ad…”

“Gruesome twosome seek exotic Europeans for week long rental in luxurious one room apartment…bed to be shared with owners.”  Charlie thinks it is a good ad, but Dee and the others are not really so sure.  We learn that Charlie and Frank are trying out their own version of an Airbnb, although Mac and Dennis think they are trying to steal their own “Meet Cute” idea, which Charlie confuses for “meat cubes.”  Either way, this should be interesting…

4

“That’s a hard no for me.”

Charlie and Frank are extremely excited to meet Alexi and Nikki, but they change their minds when two Austrian men show up at their door.  They try to go to bed early, but it appears that the bed may now finally be too crowded, as they start to have second thoughts about their decision…although there is yodeling.

3

“Pushing away a soulmate.”

After Mac and Dennis’s plan backfires when their guest, Lisa shows up at their own Airbnb with her husband, Greg, they decide to get Dee on board.  Mac sends Greg on a mission to get a plunger and Dee happens to be waiting in the same hardware store and it’s the only plunger left.

Dee comments on how “it’s charming and cute and fun how we met over a plunger,” but Greg is not so convinced and decides to just go to another hardware store.  We know you are much more than a “diversionary plot twist,” Dee!

2

“That’s not romantic…or comedic.”

After hearing Lisa and Greg arguing over someone named Teddy, they assume that one of them had an affair.  Mac comes to the conclusion that perhaps the Meet Cute is meant for him and tells Greg how he feels with a moving soundtrack playing in the background.  Greg explains that Teddy is their son who died and suddenly everything is not so romantic or comedic, as Dennis realizes that he doesn’t have a music soundtrack for a dead kid…

1

“I love you!”

It initially seemed like we would not get the satisfying rom-com movie ending, but Charlie and Frank realize that they should have never kicked out Alexi and Nikki and decide to rush after them at the bus stop, especially when Charlie sees that they left them a present of actual meat cubes.

Alexi says that they will return in one year and Charlie and Frank promise to be waiting for them, as Charlie shouts, “I love you!”  After all, he had Frank at “gash.”  Stay tuned for more Sunny fun!

My performance of the week ending 9/7/19 on TV goes to…

Hilary Duff as Kelsey Peters on TV Land’s Younger.  Even though the show mostly centers around Liza, I was beyond impressed with Hilary Duff’s performance in season 6 and I think that our girl Kelsey is finally showing the world what she is truly made of.  She’s more than a SHero.  She’s an inspiration and she is proving to be a strong woman who can compete with anyone in the business world.  Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.

Even when it seems like things are not working in her favor, Kelsey manages to turn it around somehow, proving that she is extremely capable and hard-working.  She refuses to let defeat creep over her and she always has another backup plan, preparing for whatever comes next. 

I have always loved the friendship between Liza and Kelsey, along with the budding relationship between Kelsey and Zane, but I really thought that Kelsey finally started to find her own identity separate from these relationships in season 6, which makes her much more than a supporting character.

Kelsey has a lot of responsibility on her shoulders in season 6, taking on the role of publisher of Millennial, but she continues to make impressive decisions.  Even after her social media mistake, she still bounces back and makes the courageous decision to leave the job that she has come to love, taking a huge leap of faith to discover her next path.

Ultimately, it looks like Kelsey’s path will actually lead her right back to Millennial in a different role and I have to say that I am relieved!  Kelsey has worked so hard and she deserves recognition for her efforts and I think that Charles is really trying his best to make her feel like she is part of the Millennial family.

What’s next for Kelsey?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like Kelsey will have a new position at Millennial to tackle and she is also truly opening herself up to Zane, so it will be interesting to see what’s next for one of my favorite ships as well.  I have been a fan of the series for a while now, but sometimes characters with the most potential lose out on screen time.

Each episode is only about 30 minutes, which doesn’t give us a lot of time to play with, but I think that the development and growth of Kelsey’s character has been so important for the series and I am a Kelsey Peters fan for life.  I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Best,
