THIS IS US S5E14 THE MUSIC & THE MIRROR 😊

Unfortunately, a Madison episode on THIS IS US is like a SIMPSONS Lisa outing. It’s a whole lotta “meh.” Tonight, Kevin brings up an old improv game called “Good, Bad, Worse.” You play by mentioning topics based on those themes. Instead of using it for improv, let’s try it in review format!

Good
The different types of parenting (neglect, nurture, abandonment) are portrayed flawlessly by each actor.
The devastating opening where Beth faces the music that her dance studio has to close due to COVID.
Jodeci “All My Life.” Why? Because it’s Jodeci’s “All My Life!”
Bad:
Madison’s wedding dress shopping.
Beth and her “Lucky Charms.”
Toby “swimming” in plumbing problems.
Worse: Kevin’s #1stWorldProblems
His attempt to find work. He’s a celebrity/multi-millionaire! Are audiences supposed to relate?
For running into his ex. Not in person, but via a random Zoom! 🤦‍♂️
For having doubts about his future wife. They are getting married and have two beautiful twins. What are you thinking?
Here’s to next week returning from Bad/Worse to Good.

it’s available on NBC / Peacock.
