Kevin Probably Saves the World Season One Episode Two airing October 10th, 2017 is called Listen Up.

Jason Ritter is a breath of fresh air in this inspirational show. I love how the show tackles suicide from both sides. The one who was down and out and tried as well as the family who feel helpless.

The show begins with Kevin doing push ups in the rain. Not a bad sight if I must say.  Come on Kevin, your angel isn’t going to give you the list. You got to work for it. A wet Kevin is a pretty Kevin. Well he’s pretty good looking no matter what.

I love how Kevin stopped to see the world more clearer and the production team slowed down the filming enough where you could see the individual drops. And now we get Kevin in his boxers  Come on Jason Ritter, you are making this hard to concentrate on the show.

Don’t worry Kevin, I am not very good at coffee machines. I agree with your sister, these flyers do not sound very appropriate. The brother sister aspect between Kevin and his sister is cute. If only siblings were always that nice.

This show is so cute and uplifting.  It is just what we need in the world right now with everything going on.  I remember my mom watching Three’s company when I was a kid. That was my first introduction to John Ritter, Jason’s dad.  Then I watched Raise your voice. The first thing that I ever saw Jason in.  He was so amazing in that movie that he made me cry.  When his character passed away, I bawled like a baby getting a shot. Then he kind of went off grid. He wasn’t in anything that was too main stream. That is until Parenthood. I honestly disliked how his character was treated in that show. He was so honest and pure and cute that I felt he should have been treated better. Now we have Kevin Probably Saves the World. This show is funny, intriguing, inspiration and all around fun that it is worth staying up an additional hour. (Even though I get up between 4 and 5 AM) Jason Ritter is capable of performing any scene with a type of lighthearted humor. I am curious if the Sheriff is from Marvel’s SHIELD. He looks failiar.

So we started the show with some sort of righteous boot camp.  Kevin then decided that he should get up at 4 AM ( if you don’t have to get up that early, why would you?) to make flyers trying to find who needs help.  However, like his sister pointed out, those flyers sounded a little dirty. He makes the flyers anyway and catches a ride to town with his sister. There he distributes his flyers. Except when he tries to place a flyer on a bulletin board they keep falling or disappearing because a flyer was more important. The universe was giving him a sign.

Kevin then tries to figure out what the owner of the flyer could need help with.  He is being very bothersome and prompts the sheriff to be called who gives him a ride home.  The talk between Kevin and his sister about his suicide attempt is what we need. There has always been this stigma around mental health. That attempting suicide isn’t a mental illness. That we should be ashamed of having any type of mental problems. This show is what I need.

After the conversation with his sister, Kevin goes to the party that his friend Joe is having. He feels kind of odd because everyone is asking him why he came back.  I find it very emotional when Kevin talks to the ones he helps about his mental illness and suicide attempt.  Changing a hard to reach light bulb sure escalated fast. His former girlfriend came to Kevin with a copy of his flyer asking what kind of services he offers.  She starts to list off things like plumbing. Although, Kevin did put that he could do anything on his flyer, there are some things that he cannot do. So she asks him if he can change a hard to reach light bulb. The next scene that we see is hot and heavy where Kevin crashes into and breaks a lamp.

Amy talking to herself about her brother is so adorable. She is a worried sister and it is something that I can relate to.  The rekindling between Kevin and his ex seems to be a one night stand as she did not want him to stay the night. So Kevin is forced to walk home arguing with Yvette.  Then the statement about a right way to have sex? that seems like a statement that will be breaking the internet.  Since Kevin didn’t call or text Amy to let her know that he wouldn’t be coming home or would be coming home late, she freaks out  This prompts Kevin’s niece to come find him.

After the one night stand, Kevin tries to get a date with Kristin only to be brushed off. Come to find out, Kevin didn’t break up with her the first go round.  I’m guessing it is a type of revenge. Like hey you broke my heart by not even answering my calls so you get the hang up now. Either way, it speaks to the viewers. I felt very sad for Kevin. He seems so cute and sincere.

After the farmer’s market scene we see Kevin talking to Jake, the guy he is supposed to help. Kevin initially wanted him to ease into telling his dad he didn’t want to work in the beer company anymore. Yet he decided to up and quit. Which prompts his dad having a heart attack. While they are being placed in the ambulance, the son looks at Kevin and says “This is all your fault.” It is just not Kevin’s day. Brushed off by his ex and being blamed for a heart attack. His face just says it all. A street sign fell in front of Kevin, almost  hitting him, the angel tells him to go to the hospital, a couple stops and asks where the hospital is and a couple of ambulances pass by him as he is ignoring the signs.  The humor of this show is so adorable. At the house, the TV is also giving Kevin signs that he needs to go to the hospital. It appears that he really needs to listen to the universe.

Kevin had told the sheriff that Amy needed to fix the truck.  The exchange was a little weird.  When Kevin brings up the part to Amy they have an argument. I’m not quite sure how telling a cop that you could possibly use your sisters truck is telling your sisters business.  However, in a bad mood, Amy slams the trucks hood crushing Kevin’s hand. Another sign from the universe that Kevin needs to go to the hospital. His work isn’t done. That hood only bruised his hand. That’s an old truck so it should be mainly metal. That should have crushed his hand.  How cute that Amy talks to the truck as if it is her late husband John. Although it is cute its also sad. She misses her husband. The bond between the brother and sister in this show is so cute. They fight and make up and lean on each other. Kevin is so adorable. While in the hospital Kevin receives another sign to go see Jake’s dad.

Turns out that the heart attack that Kevin supposedly caused wasn’t a heart attack. It was an early sign. Something that most people don’t get. Basically the body letting them know that they need to make a change before they do have an actual heart attack.  There Kevin realizes that it wasn’t Jake he was supposed to help, it was Jake’s father.

Kevin gets into an elevator where a fish falls down.  Looking up he sees a bunch of water. Out of pure curiosity, that’s the only think I can guess, he touches the water and finds himself swimming in the ocean looking at an island. “You want to be my partner in crime, my ride or die”. This has to be my favorite quote of the show. Kevin calling Kristin pretending to be back in college is too cute. He is finally giving her the break up that she deserved all those years ago. I also love that they chose a 90’s song, Closing Time, to play in the background.

The final scene is Amy and Kevin riding in the fixed truck. They have such the cutest brother, sister relationship.  I know I have said this before but it is so adorable that I cannot help but mention every time they share a scene together.

I give this episode a full 10 stars. Just like the premiere, Kevin Probably and Jason Ritter delivers everything that was promised and more. This is a show that I hope never ends. I hate that I have to wait another week to see Jason Ritter’s cute, quirky self again.

SmackDown Live. October 10, 2017

Fatal Four Way Tag Match: Ascension v. Breezango v. Benjamin/gable v. Hype Bros: Winner=Benjamin/Gable

Becky Lynch V. Carmella: Winner=Lynch

Nakamura & Orton V. Rusev & Aiden English: Winner= Nakamura/Orton

AJ Styles V. Baron Corbin: Winner= Corbin

The Usos started the show off.  They recently won back the tag team titles at the Hell in a Cell pay per view this past Sunday.  Honestly, this match between Usos and the New Day was the best match of the night.  Although, Shane was an entertaining part of the night pushing the limits as only he can, the Usos should have been the main event.

The Usos didn’t really speak on the mic as much as they usually do before calling the New Day out.  Speaking of the New Day, why are they always thrusting their hips around and twerking. I thought this was a PG show. How is dancing like that PG? I mean if we’re going to allow that can we spice up some of the other stuff too? Ah the crowd chanting “New Day Rocks” it’s more like New Day Lost….again. It’s nice to hear the Usos showing respect for the amazing match that they put on with the New Day. However, it is kind of hard to listen to them talking because Jey’s voice is squeaking just a little bit. I do, however, greatly appreciate the respect shared between these two teams.

And then the Hype Brothers interrupt.  However, they are speaking truth. WWE does push the same people over and over.  Jey commented on Mojo’s career in NFL. That was quite the burn.  Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable show up to try to declare their shot at the tag belts. Followed by Breezango and the Ascension. As anyone could predict Daniel Bryan came out to declare a match.  Daniel said it is a bad night for the tag team division to be fighting? Why is that Daniel.  Are we turning Daniel into a heel GM? Of course he is declaring a fatal four way tag match that starts right away.

The fatal four way between Hype Bros, Breezango, Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin, and The Ascension started after a commercial break with the Usos sitting by with the announce team.  I feel that the push for Benjamin is on the fence.  The crowd was so excited to have him back but I don’t feel that they have executed his push properly.  The Ascension and Breezango have not really been out in the ring very much.  Gable performed a take down perfectly. Typically in this type of match, all hell breaks loose.  Something that Smackdown live does better than Raw is that when a match is going on, they use split screens for commercials. This seems to be a great way to kick off Smackdown Live. Tyler Breeze almost stole a victory.  That would be an interesting turn of events to see these two against the Usos. Especially with the Usos heel attitudes. After a back and forth between Gable/Benjamin and Breezango, Gable/Benjamin pulled the win.

Interesting enough, Nakamura and Randy Orton are going to tag with each other against Rusev and Aiden English.   A very short locker room segment trying to get a comment from Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn about their actions at the Hell in a Cell PPV.  Which I am still trying to decipher for myself. I know they were best friends but Owens turned on Zayn before. So what makes him think that it won’t happen again?? When it does, I really want to hear him complain about it. Which we all know he will.

I absolutely love what WWE does for charities and organization.  October is the month that WWE partners with Susan G. Komen to raise awarenss for brest cancer.

The review of the Woman’s title match from this past Sunday. If that match did anything, it signified that Charlotte had completely turned face and Nattie is the heel. Which the heel does look good on her.  Locker room segment between Nattie, Lana, Tamina and Carmella. It feels too scripted for me. All hell breaks loose between the entire women’s division.  I guess it is just the night for hell to break loose.

Renee interviews Baron Corbin who won the US championship title this past Sunday.  However, AJ styles has already cashed in his rematch clause. Unfortunately, Corbin has talked so much that I no longer listen.

Up next is Becky Lynch and Carmella. This should be an interesting match. possibly. It certainly has the potential to be a great match. I am not so sure why Elsworth has to be tied to the post like a dog. That is kind of degrading to men. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not a fan of No Chin Elsworth, or at least not anymore. I thought his bit with Dean Ambrose was comical at first. Now that he is aligned with Carmella, it is getting old.  Carmellas new outfit reminds me of a bathing suit. That pink outfit is really bright. I don’t understand why she has to scream so much. The crowd seems to be on Becky’s side while Carmella is taking control. But she won’t win that fast. Off topic here, is it bad that I see wrestling in the mindset of what the Sin Video on youtube is going to be? The CinemaSin guy? Carmella seems to be getting better. However, Becky wins by submission.

The Victorious Kevin Owens? He really wanted to be announced like that? At least he’s limping to the ring. I’m sorry, I really wanted Shane to win in that match.  I know that it is all a storyline and although they do really get hurt the things that are said and the winners are scripted. I have known this for a very long time. However, I do not ever agree with bringing someone’s kids into the story. Even if Shane said it was okay, I don’t think it was okay.  It is now time to tune out. Owens seems to overly talk way too much. So I only have to tune it every few seconds and he still talks about the same thing.  I see Sami Zayn coming out soon to agree with Owens and whatever. I understand Owens is a heel, but does he have to be a crybaby heel? These are things I question while Live Tweeting the show on Twitter….However, I have more thoughts than what 140 characters will allow.  Seriously Owens?? cutting in line at the pearly gates? I’m pretty sure they would only call you up from to kick you out.  Sami Zayn as a guardian angel? Kevin owens heaven? He is full of himself. However, I do still like Zayn’s music. You can’t help but dance to it. Even though right now I don’t want to like Zayn. Yeah Kevin you better be thanking Zayn. How is power bombing Zayn an eye opener? Ah this is where Zayn is turning heel. Just like Owens, Zayn has gone on this very long excuse for why he did what he did and why he turned against Shane.

Rusev and Aiden English versus Randy Orton and Nakamura is next. This is an interesting tag team. I like both Nakamura and Orton. However, the beginning of Nakamura’s entrance gives me a headache.  I do love his music tho and my daughter dances along with him which is cute.

Orton and Rusev start the match off.  Their rivalry hasn’t been what I had hoped it would be. Both achieving quick victories over the other.  Orton slams Rusev on the announce table and it doesn’t break. That is when it really hurts. If the table breaks, it doesn’t hurt as bad. It does hurt but not as bad as when the table doesn’t break. Every time someone is thrown on a table and it doesn’t break, I wince. Rusev and English have control of the match very early on. Rusev and English are working very well with each other. I guess English was tired of being a jobber. I mean it was so bad that we didn’t even know he had an entrance music. I’m not a fan of English’s voice, personally. It is very nasally for my liking.  Finally, Orton made a tag to Nakamura and here he comes.  I always wondered why they started calling him ‘The Artist’? Don’t get me wrong, he is a master in the ring. Is it still an RKO out of nowhere if everyone is expecting one to be done in the match??

Locker room segment with AJ Styles about his loss at the PPV. I realized that it is almost 9:30 EST with only 36 minutes left in the show and there has only been 3 matches. They haven’t even been long matches. There has been that much talking that it took up most of tonight’s program. Kind of like last night’s RAW. Not enough matches and too much talking.

Luke Harper and Eric Rowan have made their return. In a very interesting and kind of creepy video, creating a new faction. Interesting.

DL0gZvyVoAEv91e

Here comes Roode with his annoying, yet catchy song that you don’t want to hear but gets stuck in your head for a long time.  He comes out in these robes that remind me of Ric Flair.  I wonder if he does this on purpose. I may not be a fan of Roode but he was brought up from NXT to spice things up. Why is it a night of talking? Seriously? When did wrestling become more about what they got to say and less about what they can do in the ring? Dolph Ziggler. I’m not sure what his whole gimmick is supposed to be. I know he’s doing this I’m not gonna do a flashy entrance because my actions are better or something. Did he ever resign his contract? I thought there were rumors about him going to New Japan. Dolph thinks hes the greatest in ring performer, I think he’s exaggerating this a little bit. Dolph accusing Roode of being a cheater? From my point of view, Roode was only mimicking what Dolph had done before the reversal. Hey Roode I agree with you. I am kind of sick of the talking. There has been so much talking tonight its crazy. Dolphs hair is so long and pretty. I am a little jealous. I wonder how much hair dye it takes to keep it blonde? Go figure, Ziggler wants a rematch but doesn’t want it tonight. At least they stopped talking.

Up next, Is the US Title match between Baron Corbin and AJ Styles.  I want to be in the crowd to do the “One Fall” chant. Wait I will be next month This is going to be fun. So Baron Corbin came out during the break? The fans at home didn’t get to see him come out? Doesn’t the challenger usually come out first? Could this foreshadow AJ getting his title back?  Is this match really going to take 15 minutes? I’m not sure if Corbin constant rolling out to the outside is a good thing or a bad thing. I mean it allows him to regain his composure but it could also lead to AJ performing some risky moves which could really cost Corbin.  So earlier they used the split screen for commercial during a match.  Why are we on the main event and they went to commercial without the split screen? This doesn’t make any sense. Com on now WWE, keep up some consistency.  How does anyone keep falling for Corbins baseball slide out of the ring, round the post then back in the ring? Thank you AJ for catching him before he could do that baseball slide move again. From the sounds of the crowd, they are thrilled with AJ as well. Did Corbin get the name for his finisher from the Marilyn Manson song? Thats what I think about when I hear it.  Baron could have and probably should have capitalized on his finisher but didn’t. Corbin hitting the post sounded awful. Slamming Aj’s head on the mat is an interesting and effective way to break out of the calf crusher. This has been quite a brutal match with Corbin retaining the title. Which I actually thought that he would probably lose.

I am still baffled that there were only 4 matches total in tonight’s show. That is a little ridiculous. That means that there were more segments with talking than actual wrestling. Doesn’t the WWE creative team know that there are talk shows for talking. I understand the need for talking to communicate the story line but when it takes up most of the show then it is too much talking.  I hope you enjoy my recap and feelings on the show.  Like I said it is just way too much than the 140 characters that Twitter provides can handle. Let me know how you felt about tonight’s show. Is there anyone that you wanted to see tonight? Who did you want to win in each match? Look forward to hearing from you.
