Timing is everything in entertainment

Thursday morning I got to work and was getting ready to hit the news that a Willow sequel series may be coming to Disney+.

As I worked on finding a suitable image, I turned on Wednesday night’s The Goldbergs to listen to. In the episode, Adam (Sean Giambrone) is trying to rush through Mother’s Day with his mom (Wendi McLendon-Covey) so that he can get to a showing of Willow with Dave Kim (Kenny Ridwan). When his mom takes too long, he gets angry, because he has to see the film immediately as it’s going to kick off a trilogy.

Adam and Dave leave the film trying to convince themselves they liked the film. It didn’t work.

Of course none of this was planned, but the symmetry of it just made me laugh too much.
