Let’s talk about Wednesday night’s TV!

THE GOLDBERGS: I loved the a cappella version of the theme song!

Oh my God, Murray and Adam teaming up to fake a camping trip and then blow it because the former was too lazy/cheap to buy a proper fish to fake their successful trip was incredible.

CHICAGO MED: I’m glad April’s secret is out, but, also, what a time to confess the truth. On one hand, super smart, because hard for your fiance to get as mad when you’ve just had a medical emergency. On the other, you can’t really do anything to defuse the situation when you’re stuck in a hospital bed.

I do worry Maggie and Ben got married too fast—their entire relationship has existed in a heightened state of trauma—but their wedding was ultimately very cute. Very curious to see if they can survive in the real world now that things are “normal.” [For more on the episode and what comes next, here’s what the EPs had to say.]

SCHOOLED: Lainey freaking out about there being another teacher at the school who could sing well…oh my. Her reaction was, well, a lot.

I am intrigued by both THE GOLDBERGS and SCHOOLED leaning into the musical elements this week. Sure, both shows have established music to be a part of their DNA from the start, but going from Erica trying desperately to be a part of the a cappella world to Lainey’s musical class made me wonder if it was just a happy accident or it was intentional. (Not bad either way; it at least felt natural.)

THE MASKED SINGER: I’m sure Bella Thorne wasn’t excited to be eliminated, but what a week to go—with two of her former costars on the panel.

CHICAGO FIRE: Ohhhhh, Casey talking about losing his (potential) son hurt. I do love the bond he and Gallo have formed, and the duo teaming up to make sure a son wasn’t taken from his mother was lovely.

I love that Stella might be focusing on raising the next generation of female firefighters up. Given the gender imbalance, what a difference that could make.

MODERN FAMILY: It’s reallllllly starting to feel like the end. And given how many series regulars they have to contend with, I’m wondering how they will stagger out the final arcs. Was this Alex’s real ending? In the pilot, when the show didn’t acknowledge they were all one big family until the Lily reveal, they were able to introduce the three families seamlessly. Now, because the kids have grown up so much, it’s hard to imagine they could really do the same in an episode. Going to make the final few installments extra emotional.

SEAL TEAM: Man, Ray comforting his daughter broke my heart.

I also really appreciate that the show continues to highlight Jason’s PTSD and him taking care of himself by going to therapy. The stuff Bravo Team goes through is absolutely traumatizing, and taking care of themselves is so essential.

(And #TeamGritty.)

CHICAGO P.D.: Well, uh, Voight doesn’t always play well with others. (Though the rest of the squad basically walking away after Voight delivered that end punch made me laugh out loud.)
