If you haven't caught ABC's Friday night sitcom Speechless you definitely should.  It's about a teenage young man, J. J. DiMeo, who suffers from cerebral palsy and his familial and school challenges that arise from his disability make for some rolling on the floor laughing situations  :lol: 

 

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5592146/

 

The actor portraying J. J. is Micah Fowler, who has cerebral palsy in real life.  Although not as afflicted as his character, Micah brings an unique perspective to the show.  As he has stated in several interviews, his biggest challenge to the role is that although Micah can speak and communicate well in real life, J. J. doesn't and has to utilize a speech board that lets a computer give him voice.   There have been times when Micah has wanted to just blurt out what he was feeling and has had to suppress that since the character doesn't speek :biggrin: 

 

Official trailer:   


My mind is software; I will reprogram it.
My body is a shell; I will modify it.
Death is a disease; I will cure it.
Extinction is ever-looming; I will fight it.

Well. . .N.C.I.S. managed to throw a couple of surprises at me in tonight's season ending episode.  The first was that Emily Fornell is an opioid addict.  The second, which occurs at the shows denouement, is the reappearance of Ziva David  :blink2:

 

And, if you didn't get a chance to watch the new series that followed, give Blood and Treasure a chance.  Sort of a mash up of Raiders of the Lost ArcMoonlighting and the Keystone Cops, it definitely keeps you hanging on the edge of your seat.  Set in exotic locations around the world, I especially liked the escape tunnel under the Vatican  :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

Has anyone seen the Netflix show Lost in Space that premiered last year?  The one with a female Dr. Smith  :blink2:   Although, from what I understand, she really isn't Dr. Smith and actor Billy Mumy (from the original TV show) portrays the real Dr. Smith  :confused5:
