This Is Us 2×10: “Number 3” Recap: All about Randall

The This Is Us fall finale, “Number 3”, brings us to the final installment of the “Big 3” trilogy. Much like how Kevin and Kate’s episodes focused on them, this one focuses primarily on Randall and his family. While the past follows Randall on his first college tour, the present focuses on the end of […]

This Is Us 2×09 “Number 2” Recap: All About Kate Pearson

Last week’s Kevin centric episode of This Is Us, “Number 1”, left us with the heartbreaking cliffhanger that Kate lost the baby. ☹ Now, “Number 2”, centers on Kate and the aftermath of that miscarriage. I’ll be honest, while Chrissy Metz’s and Chris Sullivan’s acting are fantastic, I didn’t get as emotional as I thought […]

This Is Us 2×08 “Number One” Recap: All About Kevin Pearson

The next three episodes of This Is Us, are deemed to be special as they each focus solely on Kevin, Kate and Randal – giving each of The Big Three their own episode. This week’s, appropriately titled, is all about “Number one” – Kevin Pearson. He was first born, first to walk, and the list […]

This Is Us 2×07: “The Most Disappointed Man in the World” Recap

A lot goes on in this episode of This Is Us, so I’m not going to drag out an intro. As usual, the show tugs on your heartstrings and makes you feel all the emotions. In the past, Rebecca and Jack experience the adoption process. We also see more of William’s struggles. In the present, […]

This Is Us 2×06 “The 20s” Recap: A Halloween Throwback

It’s Halloween for the Pearsons, but not in the present. This week’s episode of This Is Us aptly titled, “The 20s”, takes us back to Halloween when the big 3 were 10-year-olds and then when they’re in their 20s. The primary theme, however, is how rough your 20s can be. You can feel lost, stuck, […]

This Is Us 2×04 “Still There” Recap

In this week’s episode we dig a little deeper into Kevin’s backstory, and you’ll probably cry again. Randall and Beth also have a situation on their hands – Deja’s hair. Meanwhile, Kate has a secret… a big one that I’m not sure any of us saw coming. In the past, the Pearson’s have the chicken […]

This Is Us 2×03 “Déjà Vu” Recap – The Past Reflects the Present

As much as we like to believe the past doesn’t matter or that we should just let it go, that’s just not always true or the easiest thing to do. What happens in our past is what shapes us into the people we become. Some events we can grow from. Other events we can’t even […]

This Is Us 2×02: “A Manny-Splendored Thing” Recap

In a surprising turn of events, I didn’t cry like a baby during this week’s episode of “This Is Us.” That’s not to say it wasn’t emotional, because let’s be honest, every episode is emotional. “A Manny-Splendored Thing” just wasn’t tear-inducing emotional. Which is kind of weird since it was a family gathering of sorts, […]

This Is Us – “A Father’s Advice” and a Father’s Demise

I hope no one is expecting season 2 of This Is Us to be anything less than emotional torture because you’d be wrong. The first episode, “A Father’s Advice”, is proof of that. Heck, even that title makes you feel all the feels. The themes of the hour: being imperfectly perfect and how dreams can […]
