Critic Reviews for This Is Us Season 3

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

After two seasons, we knew full well that This Is Us loved to shake-weight our hearts, but that didn't make the impact of last night's Season 3 premiere any less intense.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The way this series portrays human frailty and imperfection, especially as its male characters express those traits, makes it unique among TV dramas.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

I'm sticking with This is Us - fandom, like family, is built on forgiveness, after all. My only hope is that the writers will take the upcoming winter break to remember something Kevin said in season 1: "Life is full of color." And not all of it is gray.

Nov 2, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

This Is Us finds a way to tell schematic stories in a way that underlines how easy it can be to get sucked beneath the water by history's never-ending undertow.

Oct 22, 2018 | Full Review…

"Vietnam", is significant on two fronts: It establishes Jack's relationship with his little brother Nicky, who's also serving in the war, and opens a new storyline that will play out for the rest of the season.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

On the one hand, the series has finally defaulted to delivering melodramatic twists - spoilers to follow - but on the other, it avoids jumping the shark by grounding each reveal in the characters' deeply personal journeys.

Jun 24, 2019 | Full Review…

The [show's] subtle handling of emotions... manages to continue to remove the five central characters' layers to uncover their pain. And, every so often, their triumphs. [Full review in Spanish]

May 13, 2019 | Full Review…

This Is Us returns with its form intact, giving its fan base what they want, while offering everyone else an hour of weekly TV full of love, hugs and tears.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

For once, Dan Fogelman didn't have fans crying during the season three premiere of This is Us.

Audience Reviews for This Is Us: Season 3

  • Mar 29, 2021
    This is us continues its winning streak with its expansion of a comforting family in a layered story.
  • Dec 31, 2020
    God i was bored this season. Binged the first two ones and this one was a pain to finish.
  • Nov 24, 2020
    Easily the best drama I've seen aside from Six Feet Under.
  • Jun 11, 2020
    I gave it up. I just got so tired of going forward, going back, going further back and flying forward. Nothing ever seemed to be resolved. I just stopped caring and wanted them to all go away.
  • Feb 08, 2020
    I just cannot stand people who insist on having children dispite the high risk to themselves and to the potential child. The pain and suffering is NOT moving. It's well-deserved.
  • Jan 29, 2020
    I think this season was a turning point for the TV-show! If you thought it couldn't get any better than season 1 and 2.. well, you were wrong! The writers and the actors are just amazing and make you feel part of the Pearson's family. If you want to know more about these incredible characters, this season won't let you down!
  • Oct 10, 2019
    I love this show. I love Beth and Randall. I think this is a great show to watch and enjoy. Emotional but wonderful. Happy tears! Simple.
  • Oct 10, 2019
    Still moving with unexpected twists. Becoming more PC and sometimes this hurts story line. Pretty much every character has some sort of serious issue, including ptsd, alcoholism, obesity, clinical depression etc. it's a little too saccharine sometimes, but still has great acting and good storylines. Spoiler Saw the final episode and they had to go pc and political with a Ginsburg doll because boys need strong female figures. Kind of ironic. Anyway, there is no chance their girl would have gotten a Scalia doll. Please leave the politics out
  • Sep 08, 2019
    How they still manage to show more and more raw emotional sides of all the central character. It's some next level of story writing
  • May 28, 2019
    Their some great episodes but the season are less than what i expected and also making more three seasons not a good idea I think storyline not handling more than four seasons
