Barely recognize Chris Sullivan without his beard
7 episodes in. Fantastic show
My prediction for when the show resumes in January (spoilered for those not current):
The episode opens in the hospital room following Kate's appendectomy. The family is all gathered around her, laughing and joking. After a while the Mom reminds her that nothing bad ever happens on Christmas Eve. The natural sound is replaced with music as the family keeps interacting; Kevin and Randall are doing something goofy in the background and the Dad is making Kate chuckle. Scene transitions to the present time where Kate is talking to the doctor. Toby has died. Kevin and Randall are in disbelief in the background, clearly shocked and upset, though they're trying to be stoic for their sister. Kate collapses into her Mom's arms and asks, "I thought nothing bad ever happens on Christmas Eve?"
Cue This Is Us graphic.
My mom told my wife and I about this show shortly after the premiere given what we experienced this past year. She said there is a scene with a doctor that will just blow you away in the episode.
Honestly we were both nervous to watch as it would bring back a lot feels/memories of a tragic part of our lives. We finally decided to watch last weekend and my goodness it was so well done and the room was dusty for a long, long time.
We finished the last episode last night and absolutely love it. Definitely one of my favorite shows. The speech the doctor gave Jack was one of my favorite moments of tv. It really hit home.
Wife and I decided to check it out yesterday evening. Ended up staying up late and then got all the way caught up this morning.
I generally don't watch network TV but this show is great so far. Every episode there is at least one moment where it gets dusty.
if you have Netflix y'all should check out Parenthood
its generally the same thing except its all one timeline
One of the GOATs.
The Bravermans are amazing. That's actually how I got turned onto This is Us, because a friend was like "it's a lot like Parenthood, just a little 'different' in a good way"
Our living rooms get a little bit dustier starting back on Tuesday!!!
Every. Single. Time.
Man every scene with the Doctor got me
Why do I watch this show when all it does is destroy me emotionally
Why god why
Wife and I started this tonight. WOW is all I can say.
I thought this week's was the weakest episode so far. Previews for next week look great tho...lots of storylines in that one.
I will not be watching the Jack death episode
Had no idea that Toby wears a fat suit.
That was an awesome episode.
watched this w/ the wife over the course of the past week
damn this is good tv
don't know if i'll be more emotional for Jack or William's passing
The answer is Jack.
I made it all the way to the previews for next week and then godamnit. Why must they tug the feels every week?
I wouldn't blame Toby if he kills Duke and Kate.
Mandy Moore looked incredible throughout that episode.
That cunt Kate doesn't deserve Toby
I want a woman that looks at me like Rebecca looks at Jack
It'll be interesting to see what goes down in that situation. I know a few women at work that watch the show and Toby is their favorite character...if Kate fucks him over for that Duke guy, then there is gonna be a villain on the show in their eyes.
Doubt Kate goes through with it
She better the fuck not.
Oh she's with him, he pushed all the right buttons
based on the end of the ep it seems like
jack gonna fall off the wagon and die in a drunk driving wreck
Dang, that one was rough. Kevin definitely did what his dad would have though, props to him.
Yup. That was one of my favorite episodes.
Definitely seems like that's what will happen....so, it probably isn't. We are definitely headed to an ending involving booze with him tho.
next week is gonna be fucking brutal
William passing had me feeling all the feels.
got pretty dusty in my house last night
It was an extremely well done episode. Great way to send William out. Perfect that Randall met cousins that final day as well, since he always wanted to meet family.
That was a phenomenal episode.
this is me anytime I'm watching this show
it got me to find out he was straight and narrow and then his mom died and his whole world fell apart and the only thing that could make him feel better were drugs
also interesting that his mom probably had the same type of cancer, so I wonder if Randall has that gene
the music that was playing when they were showing the mom dying montage was fucking heartbreaking
Man, that was heart wrenching and perfect at the same time
watching the aftershow on this episode is great
most of the Memphis scenes of them in the barbershop, bbq restaurant, etc were improved in
and then Sterling Brown said he saw the actor and his real dad when he was doing the hospital scene since he was only 10 when he lost his real dad and wasn't allowed to be there since they thought he was too young
just makes you really appreciate just how great this show is
That was a tough episode. I'm glad William got one last jam session.
he lasted just long enough to apologize to and payback his cousin
"The two best things in my life were the person at the very beginning of my life and the person at the very end."
cue the fucking dust come flying off of the shelves and into my eyes
Just an amazing show and episode. So incredibly sad.
