Me, Myself and I - Pilot - Advance Preview: There is just a little of magic here



ICYMI #PeakTV is happening and once again this fall we get bombarded with a bunch new shows. And it isn't surprising that we get pickier with each year, especially regarding comedies. Me, Myself and I has a wicked setup but an unbelievable dose of magic that captures you without even noticing.

Back in the day when this project was announced I was slightly curious but even more skeptic towards the concept. Planning to continuously tell a cohesive story throughout 3 different time periods is a major stepping stone and seems like a suicide in the making. But (there is always a but), Me, Myself and I uses this stepping stone as its biggest weapon creating a truly compelling and relatable Pilot. The real question is will it work in further outings?

And while the episode takes time in all 3 time periods the Present time story is in the forefront. And there we meet a 40-year-old Alex Riley, played by Bobby Moynihan. The role is perfectly cast, Bobby really has a great feel for the role and transports the everyday struggle perfectly. 40-year-old Alex is at a low point in his life and life keeps hitting him from the right and left. During the present time scenes, we also meet his best friend and business partner Darryl, played by Family Matters' Jaleel White, Alex's daughter Abby (Skylar Grey) and last but most important his stepfather Ron, played by powerhouse Brian Unger. And the best scenes of the episode involve Brian's Ron as he plays Ron in present and past.


Speaking about the past, the story around 14-year-old Alex (Jack Dylan Grazer) is the funniest part of the episode. A lot is revealed in the first trailer but the scenes are filled with sincerity and great dynamics. Just as Present time Alex struggles to accommodate to his new life, so does the 14-year-old version. Alex moves with his mother from Chicago to LA, cause she is about to marry Ron. Ron has a son out of his first marriage, Justin ( Christopher Paul Rickards ). And Justin is just hilarious I enjoyed his pushy 39-days older brother attitude and the way it annoyed Alex made their interactions just more compelling.

Still, Alex has time to fall head over heels for Nori. The perfect crush and I really enjoyed how the incorporated Alex dorkiness into their interactions, making the story again very relatable to the audience.

Last but not least we meet 65-year-old Alex at another crucial time in his life and he makes a bunch of life-changing decisions. "Old" Alex gets the smallest amount of screen time in this episode but just having John Larroquette playing the role is a big plus in my role and something that makes me look forward to each future episode. Kelen Coleman plays Alex now Adult daughter Abby and her interactions with Alex is on point. They share good on-screen chemistry and show off another very relatable relationship.

So this it from me! Hope this preview intrigued you enough to tune in on Monday, September 25th and enjoy just a little bit of comedic magic. And of course feel free to share your thoughts about this preview and how I've "abused" the word RELATABLE in the comment section down below and I surely wanna know if you plan to tune in next Monday.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
