ONE CHICAGO, RIVERDALE, THE GOLDBERGS, A MILLION LITTLE THINGS

THE GOLDBERGS – “RAD!” – Erica thinks all of her singing dreams are going to come true when she lands a job at the new karaoke bar in town. But when she’s tasked with bringing in more customers, will Erica regret turning to Beverly for help? Meanwhile, Murray tries to teach Barry and Lainey how to be financially responsible adults, on “The Goldbergs,” WEDNESDAY, OCT. 10 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. (ABC/Ron Tom)

There are so many shows airing on Wednesday. Let’s talk about THE GOLDBERGS, CHICAGO MED, RIVERDALE, MODERN FAMILY, CHICAGO FIRE, ALL AMERICAN, and A MILLION LITTLE THINGS.

THE GOLDBERGS: Thank you GOLDBERGS for having Rick Springfield (AKA Gary) do a karaoke version of “Jessie’s Girl.” It’s a little bittersweet watching Barry and Lainey fumble through trying to plan their life together, when we know Lainey is a vital piece of the upcoming (’90s-set) spinoff.

CHICAGO MED: Will, Will, Will…you’re going to be in trouble.

Yikes, the new intern is going to be dangerous. While it, logically, makes sense why she did everything in her power to save the patient—who was unwilling to get needed surgery because it jeopardizes her “miracle” (ectopic) pregnancy—it ultimately wasn’t her call.

I understand why the new COO is worried about how a “bad” transplant could impact their numbers, but I’m guessing a suicide in your emergency department doesn’t look any better.

RIVERDALE: The show has always been out there, but that trial was so, so, so weird. It felt like it was something out of an entirely different show (those fans??), and you’d think the prosecutor would have had to offer their new plea deal to Archie before the jury came back?

Anyway. It’ll be interesting to see how long the show plays with Archie being in prison.

MODERN FAMILY: The Alex and Jay scene—where she discussed possibly moving away from science to pursue singing—was really great. It struck the right tone of Alex questioning her life, and Jay being supportive, but not dismissive.

CHICAGO FIRE: Aww, Herrmann got promoted.

Good for Severide and Stella digging further into the car accident and proving it actually was an accident versus an attempted homicide/suicide. (And I know Stella’s procedure in the crossover was minimally invasive, but she’s getting around well post-losing a tiny portion of her lung.)

ALL AMERICAN: I really, really, really enjoyed this pilot. Like I mentioned, it feels like THE OC meets FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS and I am so intrigued by what that end twist means. What is Billy hiding?? Oh, and Daniel Ezra should be a star.

A MILLION LITTLE THINGS: I really enjoyed the first two episodes of the show, but this episode was where things really started clicking into place for me. First of all, I appreciate that they didn’t hide the Eddie and Delilah affair from the other characters for a prolonged duration. Other shows would have waited until way deeper into the season to play that card, but getting it out there actually allows for the series to deal with the ramification of the relationship. Like Gary pointed out, this doesn’t get to neatly wrap up like a movie; it’s messy, and as an audience member, I genuinely don’t know where things are going to shake out. I also appreciated that Grace Park’s Katherine was finally allowed to have more depth and be more than just a workaholic absent wife. Even if the show doesn’t ultimately take the Delilah and Eddie relationship further, Katherine absolutely should be a well-rounded character. (Also, James Roday has been killing it on this show.)
