News & Interviews for This Is Us: Season 2
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
