Tater’s Thoughts

I’ve stuck with The Goldbergs, but it hasn’t been the same since the real Adam Goldberg left and the new showrunners started writing stories not based on his real life. It probably went at least one season too long.

I have a feeling the Million Little Things series finale will be a very sad one. They say it ends on a hopeful note, but I still think the best character will die.

We will watch Survivor tonight as always. I like this season a little more than the other “new era” seasons. Advantages and idols have not been the entire story and that’s the way it should be.

I watch Masked Singer, but I will likely cancel the recording of the finale that will air while we are gone to save DVR space. It will be almost all filler and I can read online who was unmasked, which is all I care about.

I hope Not Dead Yet is renewed. I like it.
