Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams are leaving Suits at the end of season 7. With just one last chance to visit their characters, Rachel Zane and Mike Ross, we decided to take some time to look back at their past contributions to the Pearson Hardman/Pearson Darby/Pearson Darby Specter/Pearson Specter/Pearson Specter Litt/Specter Litt universe and share our hopes for their futures. As will probably be obvious to any Suits viewer, these two talented actors and beloved characters will be sorely missed.
Jack Pearson’s presence on This Is Us has been vital from the get-go. He’s easily the husband/father of the year and a legend of sorts. The Pearson kids have lived with his memory for more than half their lives; and his death was a turning point for them, which has shaped who they are today.
The moment everyone has been waiting for is just around the corner. After the Superbowl — fitting seeing as how big the game is for the Pearsons — an all-new episode of This Is Us will air. The episode — the one where we will finally find out if all the clues were literal or subterfuge. How did Jack die? The question will finally be answered.
Until then, let’s discuss what might happen.
2017 has been what we here at Writes of the Roundtable would politely call a year of trash…but we’ve already covered that. Just to be on the “fair” side of things (and actually close out this hellfire with something positive), we present to you an actual roundtable about things we loved. You might even say these things saved us in 2017. God knows we needed something to.
Arguably one of the biggest and most anticipated movies of the year, Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi premiered last week — to mixed reaction. While many fans, both new and old, loved the movie, there were also very vocal fans who hated it. This is a relatively common theme with longstanding franchises: Diehard fans feel very strongly about how storylines should play out and what actions characters should take, so much so that when expectations aren’t met, many fans are left feeling disappointed and let down. With the introduction of so many new characters, and surprising turns for the beloved characters of the original trilogy, it only makes sense that The Last Jedi elicited similar responses. Below, our ragtag group of writers weighs in on their thoughts and reactions. How do your opinions match up against ours?
2017 has been what we here at Writes of the Roundtable would politely call a year of trash. In looking back, there are so many awful things that have happened — both in entertainment and real life — that we don’t even know where to start (much less end) with trying to make sense of it all. But, just so we can fit in with the cool kids and offer up our own 2017 year in review piece, here are our thoughts on the worst of the worst in entertainment and humanity. If only we could have actually canceled it all.
This evening, the annual Arrow-verse crossover commences. The four shows involved, Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, are combining across two back-to-back nights this year, to create a more seamless, cohesive television event (one would assume). Among the action and romance, this year’s crossover promises something new: Nazis. Here, we discuss our thoughts on the DCTV crossover, the inclusion of Nazis, and what that means for our viewing choices.
Time to deconstruct another OTP…or NOTP, as it were. Our first Ship Wars roundtable featured Once Upon a Time‘s Captain Swan; this time, we’re taking a look at Supergirl‘s Karamel. As is often the case when we start discussing controversial ships, our team is split. While we can all agree that Mon-El has some problems, our takes on whether they’ve been addressed well enough to make him good enough for Kara are, well, agreement isn’t a thing here.
So, let’s jump right in and try to figure out what everyone thinks about Karamel, Mon-El himself, Supercorp, and whether or not Supergirl has even given us any better options.
