    Watched it, loved it and can't wait for the next episode. It reminded me so much of Parenthood, which was one of the GOATs.

    Very good again last night. Interested to see what happens to the Dad. He seemed to be sober and in a good place at the pool.

    show is a really tough watch with the strained relationship between the brothers. i guess the truth is a tough pill to swallow.

    i was at least hoping that the two brothers would have a rough start due to their differences, but overcome those differences and bond like brothers. looks like that never happens. not a fan of that dynamic of the show.

    There's still time going forward to reconcile, but they established in the pilot that those two were not close. I think it adds a great level to Kevin's (and Randall's) story.

    also, the show is *killing* it in the ratings. got a better rating than CBS & ABC combined last night during its hour.

    *Killing it is a relative term to NBC/today's media landscape.

    So is Randall's biological dad dead or was that a look into the future as Kevin was talking about death? I took it as the latter and assume they would have made a bigger deal of his death.

    I think Kevin was foreshadowing but when they were cutting to others I think they were showing the future, like when Randall was folding up them clothes and crying.

    been telling my parents to watch this show since it debuted. finally got them to watch the pilot (and watched it with them). they, obviously, loved it. was fun watching the pilot knowing what was coming this time.
