One of my favorite things in life is knowing that aside from a few outliers, I can usually find common ground with someone who watches television...
Dear Jack and Rebecca, When George brought you that Crock-pot, it was a truly kind gesture. He was moving and wanted to provide you with something to make your life's a little bit easier as your family grew. It's the kind of 90s neighborly gesture that has become less common in these tumultuous 2000s. But you … Continue reading Dear Jack and Rebecca
Dear Fiona, In your world, when good things happen they are almost always followed by an ongoing spell of truly bad luck. At this point, you should be braced for the misfortune, but if you had that can’t do attitude you probably wouldn’t be the beloved matriarch of the Gallagher clan.

So in that sense, I can understand how you (and others) have strong feelings about the potentially incestuous undertones of your relationship. You used the term “complicating factors” when describing why Jackson’s suggestion that you two get drinks wouldn’t … Continue reading Dear Maggie
Dear Betty, You have the adorably pesky habit of always finding your way into someone else’s business. It’s pathological at this point. Ideally, you would direct your meddlesome energy to stop Archie from his new and weird relationship with the FBI agent who is so clearly not an actual agent for the government or any … Continue reading Dear Betty
