"The Most Disappointed Man" ... felt more like an episode of Law & Order, flashing back to William's drug bust and Randall's adoption and giving us a peek inside Deja's mother's life in jail. The hour also had its fair share of TIU hallmarks.
Maybe its title serves as a warning, but "The Most Disappointed Man" is an unusually drab episode of This Is Us.
One of the things This Is Us does so well is present a narrative about each of the characters, then return to it with fresh angles, time periods, and perspectives-giving the audience the opportunity to look at them in a new way.
You're winning me over on Miguel, This Is Us, and Toby's re-proposal is endearing on its own, but don't press your luck.
It establishes a central theme-in this case, the legal and judicial system and all the complications therein-and hopes character development will follow. Unfortunately, it's a gamble that doesn't quite pay off.
Everyone means well in this week's This Is Us. Whether their actions actually achieve the ends they're reaching for? That's another story.
It's extra-heartbreaking when the social worker pulls Randall aside and tells him Deja's mom has refused the visit.
