80% Drop Dead Diva: Season 6 (TV, 2009-2014) It's more about finding your soul mate than dealing with issues of weight. (If you can get through the premise, you're in for a real treat, mainly thanks to Elliott.) - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

4/5 95% This Is Us: Season 2 - The Wedding (TV Episode) So, it's nice that This Is Us ends the season on a mostly high note (oh, we will discuss the things), or at least a cathartic one. There is dancing and love and there is cake. We deserve the cake. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - The Car (TV Episode) "The Car" may not be as intense or dramatic as "Super Bowl Sunday," but it is just as emotional - maybe even more so. It is quiet and bittersweet, which, to be honest, is how I prefer my This Is Us. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

5/5 87% This Is Us: Season 2 - Super Bowl Sunday (TV Episode) From the Super Bowl to the Super Bawl, am I right? Sorry, not sorry: A cheesy dad joke just felt like the right way to honor the King of All Dads, Jack Pearson. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - That'll Be the Day (TV Episode) Like so many things with this show, what's actually going on isn't anything monumental, but every single scene set in the past has extra weight to it because we know what we know. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - The Fifth Wheel (TV Episode) What fresh, incredibly well-acted hell is this, This Is Us?

4/5 89% This Is Us: Season 2 - Number Three (TV Episode) Feels less like a pause to focus on a character in an ensemble, and more like a glimpse into a world where This Is Us is a show about a man named Randall Pearson, who we get to see at all stages of his life and sometimes his extended family visits. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT
