Critic Reviews for The Most Disappointed Man

"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.

Mar 9, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

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.

Mar 9, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

The writers have really dropped the ball.

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.

It was a pretty rough episode for Kevin, and I'm really hoping things turn around for him soon. It's heartbreaking to watch him struggle, and I was really rooting for him and Sophie.
