The End of “Medium”

Last Friday, CBS showed the last episode of “Medium”. Cheryl & I are fans and it took us until now to actually watch the episode. SPOILER ALERT: If you are a fan of “Medium” and have not seen the episode, STOP READING THIS.

Okay, the rest of you saw it, right? Good.

Was that the worse series finale you’ve ever seen? Didn’t Joe and Allison deserve better than that? Didn’t Ariel, Bridget and Marie deserve better than that? Didn’t we – the loyal fans – deserve better than that?

The writers killed off Joe – right at the beginning – his plane from Hawaii goes down and that’s it – or is it?

Flash forward to seven years later, Allison dreams that Joe is alive somewhere in Mexico. She so believes this that she blows a huge case against an evil drug lord to find out what he knows about Joe. Then, she takes a teenage Marie down to Mexico to find him. And, there he is, standing in front of her with no memory of who he is until he calls for her and we find out the whole truth. Joe is really dead and Allison is left on her own to finish law school and raising their three daughters.

Didn’t you just want to scream?

Flash forward 41 years and Allison is living in a nursing home. She passes away and there is Joe waiting for her. They kiss and we fade out.

Worse ending ever!

I want Joe and Allison to have a happy endingg. I don’t want to live 41 years without the love of my life and I don’t want to see two TV characters to do so either. Yes, I know it is just a TV show. Yes, I know that there are more important things to worry about. But, I’ve invested what 6 – 7 years in watching these people and I expected a much better ending. We barely even got to see the kids!

Sad.

There was one bright spot when they showed the main characters through the years and then now walking away.  Oh and the notice that the real Joe and Allison are both alive and well.

Goodbye, Dubois family, I know I’ll miss you.

Ted Williams & the Death of Decency

I saw this story on Huffington Post.  Apparently, Ted Williams – the homeless man with the smooth voice – was delayed in being reunited with his mother because NBC and CBS were fighting over which one of them could film and broadcast the overdue reunion.

What is wrong with you people?  Seriously?

I can understand journalists having to take a microphone and shove it in someone’s face after a tragedy to get the story or hounding a politician.  However; this is really too much.  Didn’t these network executives go to kindergarten and learn to share?

Why didn’t you morons both film it and both air it?  Let the people decide which network they wanted to see it on.  Loyal Today Show viewers would’ve watched it there – Loyal Early Show viewers would’ve turned on CBS, but in either case – and the most important item in this – Ted would’ve been reunited with his mother sooner, rather than later.  Two people would’ve been able to work on the special bonds between a mother and her son.

And, I would’ve given them a lot more credit for doing the right thing.  What do you think?

Mike & Molly

Did you catch Mike & Molly last night?  If you didn’t, you missed a great sitcom.  This is a great sitcom.  I’m really hoping that this show lasts.

The story is about Mike & Molly – two large people who meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and fall in love.  Mike, played by Billy Gardell, is a Chicago police officer and Molly is a school teacher.  Molly, played by Melissa McCarthy, lives with her skinny mother, Joyce, and sister, Victoria.  Swoosie Kurtz is brilliantly playing Joyce.  Katy Mixon plays her pot smoking sister.  Reno Wilson plays Carl McMillan, Mike’s single, lives with his grandmother partner.

I liked the characters and the script was hilarious.

Try to catch this show – it’s wonderful!
