It's like a murder-mystery dinner but stretched beyond one evening.

One thing A Million Little Things doesn't do so far is unduly dawdle. Revelations and recriminations come at a fast pace.

Top Critic

A weepy wannabe from the This Is Us playbook that doesn't build much of a case for caring about the characters, much less weeping over them.

Looking for another show to crack your heart open the way This Is Us did? Here's one.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

A Million Little Things draws you in and, thanks to a couple more wait-what-just-happened moments in the first hour, persuades you that there might be enough more than meets the eye to this series to make a longer term relationship viable.

Nov 9, 2018 | Full Review…

That last episode pours its heart out about Jon, but I think we just hit the tip of that iceberg too. The man has some more stuff to reveal, I am sure of it.

Mar 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A Million Little Things instead sprawls in a million different directions and blows almost a million opportunities while balancing on the precipice of sheer soap.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

I strongly disliked the pilot episode... But it's dramatically evolved into a compelling soap opera. It's a heartfelt character-driven drama about a close-knit group of friends with secrets.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The cast keeps this show grounded but it's the show's ability to tackle tough subjects in a satisfying way that makes it truly stand out.

Nov 24, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Weepy drama explores mature themes like suicide, infidelity.

Oct 3, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's no crying in hockey -- unless you're the bros who wear their broken hearts on their jersey sleeves in A Million Little Things, ABC's tear-stained and soapily addictive answer to This Is Us.

A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 1 probably had you reaching for your phone around the same time it had you reaching for a box of tissues.

Audience Reviews for A Million Little Things: Season 1

    This show is so bad, I can't believe it got renewed again. Like seriously how much bad stuff can keep happening to these characters and how much do they need to cry and mope around. It is trying to be depressing but really it is just irritating and obnoxious. I can't stand any of the characters.
  • Jun 08, 2020
    All hope for what would otherwise be an interesting premise is dashed by characters who don't act or speak in a believable or logical way. "You cheated on my husband? Hey, no problem, we should arrange a play date for our kids! I'll be right over for the pizza party! Oh, what's that? You ruined my friend's marriage? Let's get together and play a hockey game!" It's that bad.

    Excellent series - loving every minute of it!!
  • Jan 18, 2020
    The only thing "deep" about this show is the outright written-by-committee, melodramatic manipulation forced on the audience in a sad attempt to mimic "This is Us." Got through 3 episodes before throwing in the towel and deleting it from my DVR.
  • Dec 11, 2019
    I've watched this series from the beginning. You do get to know the characters pretty good, though not all are predictable. Binge worthy!
  • Oct 31, 2019
    I absolutely love this show. Incredible cast and very well written. Binge-worthy and every episode leaves you wanting more. It is just the right mix and amount of emotion. I hope this show goes well...

    I absolutely love this show!! What a unique center to base the show off of, showing how the people closest to us can come together in a new and stronger, yet different way, as a result of a tragedy, in the midst of sorrow. I really like the way they portray what good friendships are in real life, everything that's happening in the show, are things that are completely realistic and could really happen in someone's life. Well done, great plot, and excellent acting!

    Why does everyone on this show have the most dramatic life ever!?
  • Oct 13, 2019
    The show started off interesting and intriguing with a curious plot line. Unfortunately the women are extremely whiney and they had to add in a plot line for an annoying kid who nobody really cares about unless they are pandering to the LGBT+ community. With the main storyline, the kid is simply wasted air time while his sister is totally forgotten. A well meaning investor male with vast restaurant experience is made to be a cold businessman because some woman has an issue with strong men with brains trying to help. If that was reality this dumb woman's restaurant would die.

    Addicting show, powerful message.
