    Came up with a theory on the scene with Randall, Tess and Toby.

    Toby and Kate have a kid. That kid grows up and kills Kate ( I know wild). But isn't Tess a social worker? So they are going to see the kid.

    kinda agree. i guess the show has me expecting 10/10 episodes every episode due to how amazing the first season was. season 2 was damn good but not as good as 1. still have unrealistically high expectations. most of the episodes this season have still been on season 2's level.

    vietnam episode was a bit of a letdown and honestly not sure what could have happened to make it better.

    my money is still on something with toby's depression killing kate. kid growing up and killing her is out there. like a crockpot killing an american hero.

    tomorrow's episode will definitely be the beginning of Toby's depression downward spiral seeing as the title is "Toby"

    It never fails to amaze how well they cast the young versions of the characters. Young Toby was another good one.

    I think Randall is my favorite triplet.

    You think Randall is your favorite? I get Kevin has gotten better as the show as gone on but your only other competition is the human wasteland known as Kate who caused Jack’s death because of a shaggy mutt dog.

    I was pretty iffy on Miguel until the episode where he, Toby and Beth were drinking together and he called himself out for marrying Rebecca but also when they started to talk about not being able to live up to Jack he was like “cut that shit out, Jack is a fucking saint” or something along those lines.

    He’s steadily grown on me since, but I think that’s how it’s intended

    they definitely threw a fuck Miguel in the end of the very first episode (or was it the 2nd?) when he showed up at randalls. Painted him as a sleazy guy for the first half of that season - flirting with the hot female office clerk and stuff. Pilgrim Rick was the first okay maybe he's aight. Then the episode you mentioned, followed by him telling Kevin the fuck off in the grocery store.

    Poor Randall, can’t even get his D wet at his senior prom due to his gf’s racist father.

    Gf still should’ve went to prom w/ him. The mom seemed supportive

    TVGuide.com caught up with Sullivan at the Los Angeles screening of the season finale to get to the bottom of one of the show's best kept secrets, only to find out it's not really a secret at all.

    "He's an IT guy," Sullivan said. "There's one line about it, in like, Episode 4. So yeah. He specializes in technology and computers."

    season is growing on me. started off a little eh. sucks we're not getting as much humor in this one outside of some randall/beth one-liners but not bad getting some more serious stuff just because the acting is great. even kevin's new venture could be a good story.

    guessing nbc is gonna have mid-term stuff going on all night next tuesday :donotwant:

    I know Randall made money at his previous job, but how is he going to be able to hire Beth (I know he's not actually going to have to pay his wife)? They can't be making any real money from owning the apartment building but they don't seem to be worried about money eventough neither of them are working.

    honestly seems like the whole Pearson family is balling. Kevin probably winning some Oscars and no telling how much the star of a Ron Howard movie gets paid. Randall paid cash for a Benz that tbh I don't know the model but was probably close to 100K. If Beth didn't go full cunt and took the severance package they were gonna offer her, they still have income. And probably had millions in savings. Kate and Toby living off of his "IT Guy" salary and he's not even working... and she sings addellagrams.

    did they ever talk about them getting any money? I thought about including that but thought the miguel convo from 2 weeks ago insinuated he didn't get a life insurance policy. But also they never show rebecca getting any kind of job after the death that I can remember. I know they stayed living paycheck to paycheck when Jack was alive so they'd need some kind of money. But the place where she's living with the kids seems like kind of a dump.

    At this point if i had to say one way or the other how she was making ends meet I would have said her parents. Her mom seemed like a cunty upper-classy type that would have the family money to support them after Jack died. I mean look at the house Rebecca was living in when her and Jack first started dating. She isn't paying that mortgage/rent on club singer money

    I m guessing Jack has another kid that Kevin discovers. My guess is we have seen him before as well - kid who randomly delivered flowers to Kevin before premier.
