Amongst the plethora of a hundred family-friendly sitcoms, ABC has really found charm in the budding and quirky Speechless, a humble show that was then sitting beside The Real O’Neals (sadly cancelled), Modern Family (thriving), American Housewife (quietly existing), there comes a time when a teen actor steals the show.

In most recent memory, this comes in the form of the juvenile meteorite, Ray DiMeo, joining my existing TV top five favorite characters (a questionable list that includes Roger Smith of American Dad, and Elliot Alderson from Mr Robot)..

Played skillfully by actor Mason Cook (introduced to the mainstream during Spy Kids: All the Time in the World, this youngin has proven time by time that he is of sass and quality, and comes with a display of heart.

Ray’s quirks have gone on full-display in so many great episodes of Speechless’ masterful first season.

Ray’s mild manners that jollied with sophistication also established the character as the butt of the joke, which lead to golden moments in the DiMeo household.

It could be argued that the last actors (despite the obvious age gap) to accomplish such feats are Rico Rodriguez and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons who respectfully plays Manny Delgado and Lily Tucker-Pritchett on Modern Family.

I argue the foreseeable future when the Ray character actually grows older into the form of Parks And Rec’s very own Ben Wyatt (played by Adam Scott).

Of course, it’s also impossible to deny Minnie Driver’s grace as Maya, John Ross Bowie (known to most as TBBT’s Barry Kripke), Micah Fowler as the heart-ful J.J., Kyla Kenedy as hyperactive Dylan, and Cedric Yarbrough as aid Kenneth.

Now, join me in watching Speechless’ second season when it premieres on ABC during the last leg of September. I am supes excited. 🍿
