    This show remains nothing short of incredible. Writing and Casting are so damn good! It hits all the feels every damn show... Wow... get me some Kleenex... again!

    This show was still very good this season but just wasn't packing the emotional wallop for me the first season did... until those last couple moments tonight with the reveal.

    That got me misty eyed.

    The Jack and his dad bit really hits me hard. My dad skipped out on me and my two younger bros when I was 5... didn’t see him again until I was 21. He’s dying in a hospital in Missouri. Saw him a few weeks ago. Emotions all over the place... he’s dead broke and alone. I fight the anger and bitterness. My bros will do what we need to for him. But man - it ain’t easy.
    Anyway, I love the entire show. They nail it every damn time!

    Sorry about your Pops, 82. I consider myself beyond lucky to have grown up with the best man I've ever known as my father.

    But it wasn't the Dad of it all that got me, but the other shoe that dropped during the final flash-wayyy-back/ looking at the old letters moment.

    Oh yea... that too. My wife and I were guessing whether or not Jack’s brother may have been killed in Vietnam?

    Looks like Kevin is about to take a real, vicodin dive. I'm wondering if Randall will rescue him, just as Kevin rescued Randall last season..... Sophie might just go bye-bye, too....


    Me and the bride are just crazy about this show.....

    OK, I never watched this show until the wife and I watched every episode in the last week. Whew, what a great show!!! Not sure what to say 82, but is seems like you turned out like Jack, in spite of the odds. And that doesn't happen by accident.

    Thx buddy. I don’t believe things “just happen” in our lives... you can call it Karma, or “spirits”, or whatever... but the way and the timing of how I stumbled onto this show is incredible to me, particularly since I don’t watch network TV - EVER!
    The show is therapy for me, literally... and I love every second of it... wish it were on every night.

    Welp... that's the second straight episode that got me teary-eyed and next week's got Delroy Lindo in it!

    Just an impressive show from top to bottom, on network TV no less!

    Really think that the show even has the SB spot on NBC after in the hopes of driving more viewers. And really not just critically but it is the #1 show over NCIS I heard.

    Seriously... the writing, casting and acting is off the charts! I can’t believe how riveted I am during every second of the show.
