On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, Catherine and Terri check in on Speechless, continue watching The West Wing, and try out an episode of Lost on the Challenge Round. Here’s your road map:
00:40 Speechless — If you're not watching this delightful ABC sitcom, we recommend you rectify that situation right away. It’s a family show that just happens to be set in Terri’s “special-needs bubble,” but it’s funny no matter what bubble you happen to be in.
11:50 The West Wing — In this week's episode, "17 People," Toby finds out about a big secret; and thanks to the corresponding West Wing Weeky podcast episode, Catherine finds out what the term "bottle episode" really means. (Mentioned: seventeenpeople.com.)
21:30 Challenge Round - Terri challenged Catherine watch her first-ever episode of Lost, “The Constant.” Surprisingly, Catherine felt like she could actually follow what was going on, and she was even tempted to continue watching the series. Next week is Oscar weekend, so Catherine challenged Terri to watch the 2013 winner, Argo, which is available for rent on iTunes among other places. (Mentioned: Lost fan theories by EW's Doc Jensen.)
For next week, we'll cover that movie, the 2017 Academy Awards, and The West Wing's "Bad Moon Rising." Join us!
