Critic Reviews for This Big, Amazing, Beautiful Life

This Is Us filled in the blanks of Deja's backstory.

The episode fills in some blanks in Deja's young life, offering perspective on scenes from earlier in the season.

It's remarkable the degree to which such a herculean effort succeeds.

Mar 9, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

It's a surprising choice for the penultimate episode of the season, but a beautiful story nonetheless.

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

This Deja-centric hour likely would've been successful even if it had followed a more straightforward narrative structure. But the episode elevates itself with lyrical montages that tie Deja's story into the larger story of the Pearsons.

This particular gem will live down as one of the show's best episodes.

How's this for an unexpected twist: One of the most moving episodes of This Is Us' second season features virtually no members of the Pearson family.

They're definitely showing her as part of the family now, and it will be exciting to watch them grow together, and her journey with her mom as well as Randall and Beth.

If there's anything we've learned from nearly two full seasons of This is Us, it's how the show's characters are strangely yet beautifully connected-in ways we least expect.

Mar 9, 2018 | Full Review…

For the penultimate episode of the season, This Big, Amazing, Beautiful Life was an untimely rare misstep for This Is Us.
