    Yeah I felt that was a little too gratuitous “cry now” tug at your heartstrings moment. Didn’t think it necessary.

    yeah... it's like they're taunting the audience with his death. Like... oh, everything seems GREAT, but remember, Jack... Is... GOING TO DIE AND YOU WILL CRY!!!!

    Not like that at all. It’s just a really great family drama.

    I cant get into it at all anymore, since the Super Bowl episode. I'm not sure why. It went from must see to DVR clutter in one episode. The episode was good too! Anyone else?

    I was thinking this past episode showing the montage of cross-comparisons of life similarities was lame until they made me choke up at the end with Randall and Deja on the bed. So good, This Is Us, so good . . . you got me again.

    A little bit.

    And I was stunned when they said next week was the season finale. For some reason, the show has felt a little scattered this year.

    And I’m starting to feel like Mandy Moore is criminally underused. Or maybe she just has been this season. But she seems ENTIRELY defined by Jack. They need to give her room to breathe. At first I thought maybe that’s just because they loaded up on Jack until his death, or maybe this season loaded up there, but she’s magnetic on screen and they need more of her.
