‘This Is Us’ finale leaves us with horribly emotional cliffhangers

Go ahead and exhale, This Is Us fans, because we made it – for now. To paraphrase Kevin Pearson, that tense breath we’ve held in throughout a harrowing second season can now be released…but the future is more uncertain than ever.

The Season 2 finale Tuesday night had us all playing the worst case scenario game while flipping out in all manner of ways (this reporter whispered “I’m mad” to no one in particular).

Since early Season 1, the central mystery of This Is Us was how and when Jack Pearson died and exactly what effects his death had on the rest of his family. Most of Season 2 built toward this reveal, to the point where we all but watched a man burn to death after the Super Bowl. Fun!

Jack Pearson will still be on the show (and in our hearts) in Season 3, but it looks like we’ll be seeing more of his past, particularly his time in Vietnam. And let’s not forget that This Is Us does flash-forwards now, so while we’re freaking out about catatonic Toby and Kevin/Zoe flying to Vietnam, we can also, concurrently, freak out about who Tess and Randall aren’t ready to see in the future.

Did one of Randall and Beth’s worst case scenarios come true? What’s going on with Toby? Oh, and where’s Rebecca in all this? GOOD QUESTION.

True crime podcast ‘Dirty John’ has been made into a TV series, and here’s the trailer

Published

“If you listened right up until the last disturbing seconds of true story podcast Dirty John, seeing it turned into a television series is a pretty harrowing experience.

The six-part podcast presented by Los Angeles Times journalist Christopher Goffard and produced by Wondery (who also produced Dr. Death), has been made into a Bravo series. And now, we have a trailer.

Based on a chilling true story of abuse, manipulation, deception, and violence, Dirty John sees Connie Britton takes on the central role of interior designer Debra Newell, while Eric Bana looks downright menacing playing her formidable partner John Meehan, a.k.a. Dirty John.

Dirty John premieres Nov. 25 at 10 p.m. on Bravo and will run for eight episodes.”

“Finally, a world of Doctor Who fans has seen the result of a very brave and controversial decision, unprecedented in the show’s 55-year history.

That’s right: in Sunday’s episode, for the first time ever, most characters on the show — including the lead — speak with broad Yorkshire accents.

Luckily, that trail was blazed by Game of Thrones, so hopefully most American audiences can understand what the hell this Sheffield crew is talking about.

Oh yes, and Jodie Whittaker just happens to be the first woman to play the Doctor. But judging by a packed house of fans at Madison Square Garden, where Whittaker and incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall watched and discussed her first episode live with New York Comic Con attendees, that part was not controversial in the slightest……………………..”

Add Saturday Night Live‘s “So You’re Willing to Date a Magician?” to the Breaking Hall of Fame.

The dating show sketch, which featured Awkwafina as a bachelorette who’s “not feeling too picky right now,” was pretty funny on its own. But Leslie Jones laughing so hard she had to hide behind her question card puts it squarely into “delightful” territory.

Hey, you can’t tell us you wouldn’t crack up at Kenan Thompson and those nails.
