Critic reviews for The Big Three

This show, never short on twists, slapped us with a huge one in the last scene of the episode.

It continues with the same heart and humor displayed in the premiere, delivering warmth and comfort as handily as though it were a bowl of matzo ball soup fresh out of the kitchen.

Overall, it was a surprisingly tear-free episode that fleshed out the characters and gave them some depth and some vices - to borrow a word from the episode - but was relatively uneventful.

All of which is to say I was a little nervous to sit down and watch the second episode of This Is Us. But, thankfully, "The Big Three" not only lived up to "Pilot," but introduced an intriguing new wrinkle to the story.
