Critic Reviews for Six Thanksgivings

Jack himself embodies many of the values Thanksgiving celebrates, so to have a good chunk of the episode centered on him is a smart move.

The show managed to sneak in some excellent moments while also sticking the landing with its touching final montage - so we'll indulge a six-storyline episode just this once.

Six Thanksgivings. Four great stories... And while I admire the attempt, six was just too many, especially since only four of them made an impact.

The title of This Is Us' Thanksgiving episode promises "Six Thanksgivings," and you can bet your turkey feathers that the show delivers every single one of those feasts.

While this Thanksgiving episode is no Pilgrim Rick origin tale, it's full of the sentimental holiday moments (and drama) that butter the "This Is Us" bread every season.

This Is Us again experimented with form this week in "Six Thanksgivings," offering a collection of short-stories before tying them together - inevitably, effectively - in a big, emotional montage.

You can feel [Randall's] relationship with his mother implode. The walls are caving in and Rebecca can't stop it. It is by far the best scene of the series.

Leave it up to 'This is Us' to celebrate Thanksgiving with equal amounts of sadness and joy.

Six Thanksgivings" is a quiet, impressionistic outing with a lot of emotional maturity; it offers slice-of-life storytelling while resisting the urge to tie everything together into a neat bow.
