30-something friends (sports writer Dave Miller & comedian Kevin McCaffrey) watch and recap every episode of ABC's TV series "A Million Little Things."
4.8 The Winter Finale? “I’m In”
Sophie’s got her big audition, Liam runs away to Gary, we meet Darcey’s husband Stephen (a massive drip of a guy), Maggie and her hockey guy exchange I love you’s, and Rome and Gina face a crossroads when the woman who has been helping him with his movie admits she has feelings for him — and that she doesn’t think he’s “happily married.” Eddie also has a talk with Gina that we think is some of the best writing we’ve heard in a while. Eddie? No longer a weiner! (Stephen has taken that title.)
We’ll see you back in late February! “If I lay here…”
4.7 An Episode Titled “Stay” With A Storyline That Makes Us Want to “Quit”
Let’s start with the good: Rome and Gina with some subtle and incredible acting toward the end. A Colin the Dog appearance. A very human Gary episode. An absolutely hilarious, end-of-episode plot twist in Maggie’s stalker case. Sam Pancake said “pancake” a lot.
And THEN, Eddie bringing the pedophilic teacher’s now ex-wife into Sophie’s home -- without Sophie's consent -- so the wife (Anna) could apologize. Sociopathic stuff. Just cut this out in the reruns, folks.
We’re back in TWO weeks with the winter finale!
4.6 Six Months Later AKA We’re Just a Couple of Garys
In what we agree is a very good use of flash forward storylining, we’ve bounced six months into the future after a bunch of big turns last week. Rome and Gina are trying to make long distance work while she’s on the movie set in Miami, and Rome meets a nice publicist who gives him her number for…professional reasons (really). Eddie is driving for NOT Uber, and has a heart to heart with hard-partying Sophie. Maggie confronts some doubts about her seemingly great new relationship with the hockey player, and Gary bumps into a (spoiler) PREGNANT Darcy, has a trip to memory lane when he spots his old car, and tries to move on.
4.5 Crystal Clear: Katherine’s Kiss, Gary’s F Up & Maggie’s New Boyf
Gary confronts the pervy teacher, who blackmails him and demands Sophie delete the podcast…which leads to big problems in a way you might not guess. Katherine and her new possible leading lady have a real moment, Gina gets a job offer that might take her out of town, Eddie uses the money from the lady who hit him to…give her his apartment? Feels like we deleted some scenes in that story line! Finally the thing Kevin’s most excited about: Ryan Hansen of Veronica Mars & Party Down fame is here to romance Maggie.
4.4 Pinocchio, a 9-Letter Word That Leads To A Breakup
Rome’s got career highs and lows in about a 10-minute span, but he gets an actual good (and sometimes funny!) hang with his dad, so we’re counting this as a win. Maggie continues to have no idea how to behave, on Earth, anywhere, Gina makes a new friend at the new job, Eddie finally finds the woman who hit him and explores the butterfly effect of everyone’s choices. And Gary? He’s got the law closing in, and Darcy moving out of his life. It’s a big one!
4.3 Game Night AKA Guys’ Night & Girls’ Night
It’s a Divorce Party for the gals, and a Bruins game for the guys. Both parties fall apart but we get a game of never have I ever that reveals some new secrets, a grand gesture from Theo to a girl he likes, Sophie & Maggie bumping into the wife of the perverted, comatose teacher, and a trip to a dumpster to find Gary’s lucky hat. Can someone just watch a dang Bruins game with Rome?!
So great! Sad that we won't hear anymore until the fall from you guys, but as with most things in life, the anticipation I suppose add the experience when we hear from you again. Great job!
Always a great podcast. I appreciate and enjoy the personal life anecdotal tangents.
I love the chemistry between Dave and Kevin---it makes the show!
Keep them coming!
