This Is Us smashes barriers in its exploration of mental health and addiction.

Where This is Us truly shines, though, is in the story of Randall. In his childhood flashbacks, an awareness of his race - and of the larger implications of being Black in America - brings with it stories of gradually coming-into-Blackness.

The plot thickens.

Please take this as a warning. One moment you could be chuckling with joyful abandon. The next sucker punched in the left ventricle with some heart-wrenching scene. And it bloody hurts.

It's a fine start to the season on a show that's never been shy of big emotions.

Nov 6, 2018 | Full Review…

The strong performances across the board, and the sense of quiet intrigue provided by a tragedy looming in the distance, renders it a family affair worth sticking with.

This Is Us isn't a particularly good television show, but it's an excellent pressure release valve. And couldn't you use a pressure release valve?

When you add butter, food tastes good. This Is Us makes people cry, even me, and, as far as I'm concerned, that's serving a public purpose.

Feb 21, 2018 | Full Review…

This Is Us has, in its short lifespan, morphed from a likeable, interesting drama into a treacly mess of trumped-up angst underscored by the requisite sad acoustic-guitar-strings soundtrack reserved for "heartwarming" family dramas. Enough already.

Feb 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This Is Us is really about consequences, cause and effect and how one seemingly small moment can make a lifetime of an impact. The fact that it's so popular, emotional or relatable will turn some people off, but I say take the show for what it is.

    Picking up where it just left off, This Is Us continues to hold our attention, our hearts, and our emotions hostage. The spectacular cast of actors and actresses ensure that we are in for a roller coaster of emotions.

    "This Is Us" continua a ser um dos melhores dramas na televisão com inúmeros momentos comoventes. O elenco é estupendo, especialmente Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown e Ron Cephas Jones. A produção e as histórias que envolvem os personagens continuam a ser espetaculares.

    Such an awesome change from the constant violence, drugs, sex and crime we get from most other series. It's easy to love these characters. Great acting, great directing.

    A Maudlin pile of nonsense. the wave of emotion that engulfs season 2 feels ARTIFICIAL and contrived at every turn.

    season 1 was amazing. My wife and I are midway through the 2nd season and it feels like a different group of writers took over the 2nd season. the writing of the 2nd season is Certainly of a lesser quality than the 1st season. The long soliloquies by rebecca and jack wear thin especially since most of the content of the DIALOGUE is unbelievable. the dragging out the death of jack grows tiresome. By episode 4 (season 2) I find myself praying for jack's death so we can move on. I am not sure if me and the MRS. will stick around for season 3. However, if they tease that season 3 will finally explain why jack and rebecca's gene pool created such a morbidly obese offspring I my stick around. Kate's morbid obesity is infact one of the most unbelievable aspects of the show. The genetic aspect of obesity is well established. The parents and grandparents from both sides of the family are seen and N O N E of them are obese. So, maybe she was mixed up in the hospital....????

    *Spoliers* This show, while it has some amazing moments,I can't help but feel like this season has fallen apart. I can't watch a single episode anymore without getting depressed for hours after it ends. There hasn't been a one good thing to happen in this season to provide any kind of balance to the amount of soul crushing events featured. Kate gets pregnant? Just kidding, she miscarries an episode later. Randall finds peace in fostering children? His bitchy wife constantly jumps down his throat and their foster kid gets put back in the bad situation as soon as she starts to heal. Kevin scores a great role on a movie? Nope, an episode later he gets so hurt he ends up addicted to pain pills and washing them down with liquor, and loses his ex wife AGAIN. Every flashback to Jack and Rebecca's young life, which season 1 tried to convince the audience was perfect, features 3 completely unruly children with so many problems and hatred for seemingly no reason at all. There are a few completely unnecessary comments to throw in a liberal propaganda line such as "Hillary should have won" that have no merit to the show and honestly, just seems ridiculous and forced. While I love that it tackles some deep issues that are hardly ever shown on television; such as eating disorders in a heavily overweight woman as well as a skinny woman that turns out to be bulimic, a successful black man as the lead, and sexual exploitation in Hollywood; this season has done nothing but constantly bring people down.
