Grown-ish - Messy - Advance Preview: "It Started With A Party"

I am very excited for people to see this next episode of "Grown-ish". I know I say that every time, but this, in my opinion, is one of the strongest episodes they've had so far. In terms of acting, everyone on the cast brings their A-game; in terms of writing, it's all intertwined so that the audience has the chance to form an opinion, or simply allow people to hear other thoughts on the matter.

Do you remember Cash Mooney? Zoey's ex boyfriend? CAlU's super athlete and star on the rise? Well, he's the center of attention this week and not for something that you would call pleasant. This week, "Grown-ish" tackles the topic of consent, something that we don't see very often discussed on television. Not tackled or represented, discussed. Because Zoey and her crew spend the majority of the time talking about their different (yes, different!) take on what it means and how someone else can feel about it.
As I said, Cash Mooney finds himself in a very difficult situation, one that makes campus implement something called "Enthusiastic Sober Consent". I'll leave the explanation of this policy to Zoey.

The majority of the episode is centered on the debate over this new rule that the administration has put in motion. The discussion is pretty lively, everyone bringing their different points of view to the topic. I'm not going to say who says what, because those are the most interesting parts of the debate.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this episode. It feels very different from the others and it certainly feels different from any other episode of TV I've seen in a long time. Debate is necessary in these times, maybe more than ever, and to see that on a TV show is refreshing but also important. When TV does something meaningful, it moves minds and creates cultural understanding.
The topic tackled in this episode is so relevant right now, we need to be talking about it more. I am so glad that "Grown-ish" is giving the audience this much needed conversation.

Favorite line:

Ana: "First off, it's "May I?". Nothing's a bigger boner killer than bad grammar".

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.
