oh god, i'm so stupid. i came on here and read a lot of the comments before i was finished watching the show. i don't even know why i did that. but i didn't cry when kevin went to randall and randall was scared because i was so freaking pissed at kevin for ditching sloane!!! that isn't even remotely okay. to do that. phone randall, phone someone and tell him that he's on the way. randall can have his breakdown for a couple more hours. he's not going anywhere. and kevin can do the play or at least freaking tell sloane he's leaving so she can find an understudy. that was so contrived. to help someone by screwing over someone else? so not cool. i get it that he wasn't there for teen randall when he was crying -- and i don't even remember why teen randall was upset -- but it's not cool to bail on a fellow performer like that.
i know that others wouldn't agree and i'm sure i'm making it all too clear that i am a Looney Tune and know far too much about breakdowns, but whatever... :)
i don't get the hate for miguel. feel like i missed an episode there. i too am very shallow because i have always hated the way mandy moore moves her mouth when she talks. bugs the crap out of me. it's like she indicates, okay, now i am talking and you wouldn't know that if i didn't use my full mouth and face to show you that i'm talking. i'm so grateful to whomever pointed that out. so validating. that i love this show despite her being such a significant part if it speaks very highly of this show. not to mention that she's pretty much the wicked witch of the west for not telling randall about william even though we understand why she did that. i took perverse joy in that. and i found her acting to be much better as the older version of rebecca. probably because she was chastened and guilty, but, really, she was great in those scenes.
wow, okay, just saw the previews -- well, part of them because my dvr is always cutting stuff off early. and now i am crying. shit, don't know if we are allowed to talk about previews on here or if they are spoilers so i won't say anymore. i am dreading the demise of jack. but the writing is pretty freaking good because they've set us up for that in so many ways and we get to see him as a fully dimensional human being before we lose him.
last thing. i am seriously tired of Kate being completely defined by her Being Fat. didn't we see her get that personal assistant job where the daughter was also fat? how did that just disappear? and what is she living on? how does she have money? to support herself? the actress and the character deserve to be complete human beings. and does Toby have a job? what is the deal with Big people not having jobs? i wonder if anyone else has been bothered by that.
