November 6, 2018
It's a fine start to the season on a show that's never been shy of big emotions.

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 not quite perfectly imperfect as the show returns for its sophomore season, but it remains a compelling watch.

... the same strong, consistent and emotionally devastating format that it honed so well in Season 1.

The NBC drama has once again delivered an hour of television that prompted tears to fall across this great land.

It's only episode one and already [Mandy] Moore and Milo Ventimiglia are bringing it. Buckle up, kiddies. Season two is going to be intense.
