Critic Reviews for Nine Bucks

Because viewers again know someone is dead and again don't know how, whether or not the episodes recreate the same morbid puzzle as before could define whether or not "This Is Us" learns from its past and improves as a whole.

The third season premiere, alas, gave me little reason to continue watching and yet, I know I will.

The ambitious Season 3 premiere gave folks a lot of new information to chew on, including some interesting new information regarding the flash forward timeline

On the best episodes of This Is Us, it's the love that makes you cry, not the pain.

Let's be honest, if I didn't always see the potential in This Is Us, I wouldn't be so hard on them. I mean, you don't see me dissecting the minutia of Criminal Minds.

Y'all, it's gonna be a long, long season until they finally grant us this reveal.

Raise your hand if you think Jack and Rebecca Pearson's relationship is a little too perfect.

Deja's storyline is probably the best-written element of "Nine Bucks," but even that doesn't represent This Is Us at its strongest. All things considered, this premiere feels a bit like This Is Us on autopilot.

I do wonder how Kevin's white privilege will come into play in their relationship. I want these two to work because they seem super cute together, but that question remains in the back of my mind.

Oh, so that's who "her" refers to... KIDDING. You didn't really think that This Is Us, the show that spent two seasons making us clamor to watch a guy who'd already died die, was going to give up the goods so easily, did you?
