    funnylegs4 and jul97 ~

    When I started this thread, I had high hopes for ďSpeechless,Ē but as you know, I became disenchanted with it and stopped watching. Evidently,...

    jul97 ~

    The writing does stink. Writing and story line are core aspects of any TV show, film, play, etc. There isn't anything realistic or plausible in "Speechless."...

    THE CLUB

    To win the affection of her middle child, Ray, Maya concocts a lie to get the family into a private club. As usual, everyone in the family is in on the...

    ((((((funnylegs4)))))) ~

    Progressive disclosure is a storytelling technique, where the reader/viewer learns things gradually about the characters or background situations. In Episode 9, we learn...

    ((((((funnylegs4)))))) ~

    Patronizing is one of my biggest pet peeves, so I did relate to how JJ felt, when his teammates allowed him to win on the football field. In hockey, with other disabled...

    ((((((funnylegs4)))))) ~

    Jim and I watched a Netflix movie, "The Fundamentals of Caring," a few months ago, and we were quite impressed. It's a comedy/drama, and it offers some surprises. ...

    ((((((funnylegs4)))))) ~

    As a grieving parent, I refuse to see "Me Before You." I'm pretty certain that it would depress me significantly.

    "Speechless" bothers me because it's on weekly and...

    ((((((funnylegs4)))))) ~

    I would go a step further from lazy writing and call it insulting writing.

    ((((((funnylegs4)))))) ~

    The possible need for paramedics for JJ was set up in that earlier episode, as you said. But anyone in the family might need paramedics for one reason or another. Or a...

    ((((((funnylegs4)))))) ~

    I agree with all of your observations on Episode 8.

    I will add that I don't understand why Dad has to be such a buffoon.

    And, I'm going to say it again: why do...

    After all you went through to get the VEEG, and the neuro hasnít contacted you with results yet? Thatís shameful.

    ((((((Tamie)))))) ~

    I agree with you, and "Speechless" is trying to fit into that mold of other sit coms. It's disappointing, because this was a great opportunity to illuminate the average person...

    Yes, the concert venue was revamped, before the ADA passed in 1990. But even today, many public places have yet to provide 100% accessibility.

    Your assessment of Mom in "Speechless" is accurate. That you caught all of that from just seeing promos for the show speaks volumes. Initially, I could relate to Mom,...
