[Milo Ventimiglia] portrayal of Jack is the embodiment of masculinity combined with the tenderness of a warm soul, which could not be more evident than in... ,The Trip.

In other news, Olivia is terrible again. Or is she? Signs point to maybe not, but I only have enough emotional bandwith to handle one Pearson family member's crisis per week.

I'm also slightly relieved that my emotions will finally catch a break. Many people say that This Is Us tugs at your heartstrings. For me, this show has tugged, stretched, and tangled mine.

Although I enjoyed Olivia's snobbish, complicated character at first, it no longer feels real.

This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman loves a good Ghost Dad.
