    The Act

    I completely understand. I have a high tolerance for creepy, horror, disturbing stuff. I read My Sweet Audrina like ten times the summer before eighth grade. But I hear ya, I was really triggered with the Nick parts. And I teach kids with autism (which Nick had) who can be often monotone and have issues with language interpretation. In my twenties I met some really shady people like him, thinking they were vampires and into dark gothic stuff. When she was confessing her issues with Dee Dee and he said, "I want to show you something" and it was the pornographic picture...my stomach dropped. I'm no prude at 45 years old, I've seen stuff like that, obviously, I just was putting myself in Gypsy's place. I want to scream, "No, get away from him!" She was such an easy target. My heart hurts for her. I fear (d) for those sweet guinea pigs. I'm a type one diabetic and was disgusted by Dee Dee's lack of care for herself. When her blood was 74 I screamed, "Don't just lie there, eat something!" I am going to watch it, but I wonder if it's healthy for me. Btw: do Gypsy's dentures look filmy and disgusting to anyone else??

    That makes two of us (have lived in Philadelphia and now live between Philly and Allentown). I didn't know Ken went to Penn. Makes sense as Michael and Gary did on thirtysomething (loved that show fiercely!) I absolutely adored Michael and Hope's craftsman home in Lower Merion. Edited: to the poster from Germantown and Mt. Airy- my grandfather was from Mt. Airy, my dad was from Gorgas Lane in Germantown, my grandma was from Chestnut Hill.

    I remember on Reddit (or maybe here??) 13 years. I read it March of last year, after the season two finale. So now I guess it's 12. However Mandy gave an interview and said Rebecca is 83 in the bed. She was born in 1950 so she would be 68 or 69 now.

    I believe the recreation center had a sign on it: North Philadelphia Rec Center.

    Yeah. I'm trying to figure out what brought Toby, Kevin, Rebecca to the east coast. As I stated earlier today that Isaac the show runner said Kevin lives near Beth's studio. However, as someone recalled (thank you) Tess's workplace said Sussex County NJ. Hmmm. So, did they move back?? Did Tess go to college in north Jersey? Are Kate (?) and Jack driving from the airport? A home on the east coast? Reading way too much into this, sigh.

    Lol, little Annie wrinkled her nose while looking at the Philly house flyer. So adorable.

    Hmmm, it looked to me like a typical Philadelphia brick row home. Very common here. I can't see them living in north Philadelphia though, rough area. Perhaps west Philadelphia (University City?), South? Fishtown or Northern Liberties.

    Show runner, Isaac something, said Kevin's home is in relatively short driving distance to Beth's studio. So east coast?

    I'm like, of course! Dan has said several times that he has the show mapped out and written up already. Nicky jealous of Jack's family, him saying he "used to be a person"...just shows how life is an adventure and full of surprises. How many years in the future?? 15? 20? Kevin's kid looked ten, at least. The best episode yet for me. To be honest, this show has kind of disappointed me this season.

    S03.E17: R&B

    I grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs and now live squarely between Allentown and Philadelphia. Birch Beer is totally a thing here-red or clear (Kutztown Soda Company is known for it, also the Pennsylvania Dutch brand). I prefer the red it's absolutely delicious to me. Not sure if it's also a Pittsburgh thing? My dad adores ginger beer, like others have stated, it's definitely Jamaican in origin. But man, nachos and ginger beer (or birch!) sounds delicious. In other topics, as someone who has been in Beth's shoes, I completely understand. Before I married my husband (my high school sweet heart) I was asked out by this guy I met on my birthday. He seemed great on paper, excellent career, very wealthy, his own home, relatively attractive. I asked what we were going to do on our first date and he announced he'd made reservations at a ritzy, very expensive restaurant on the river and tickets to a play nearby. I don't know. Possibly my own personal deficit, but it kind of made me uncomfortable. After all I'd just met him. I told him that perhaps that was too much, too extreme for a first date. He greeted me with chocolate roses and a ruler with his company's logo embossed on top. Lol. We ended up at a more casual Italian bistro, he was dressed to the nines. At dinner he discussed all the things we'd be doing that spring; horse and carriage, eating ice cream on his tail gate watching the cows, going to the city for shows...too much. It was like he was proposing that stuff simply for the sake of being a "romantic", which he eventually admitted he was doing as, "it works". Also, Beth really did not seem too thrilled about marrying Randall. He also strives hard for what he wants, grades, the lucrative career, finding William, and marrying Beth. Also, Beth has never seemed thrilled with Randall's family, Kevin definitely, but also Rebecca and even Kate.

    These Are the Previews and Sneak Peeks

    Thank you for posting this. I've looked on Twitter to no avail. Completely agree with you about Rebecca. Not sure when the accident took place, 80s?? I spy an older, very bearded Toby coming to the door of an older Randall. Dan said the last five minutes of the finale are a must see.

    S03.E16: Don't Take My Sunshine Away

    Yup, same here. We did have a sixth grade "graduation" dinner and dance back in good old 1987. I just assumed it was a sixth grade graduation dance at Kevin and Kate's school (although it said middle school-weird).

    S03.E16: Don't Take My Sunshine Away

    And didn't Beth say something like, "you mean the message I got after I drove here and was in traffic for three hours..."

    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.
