Re: This Is Us - NBC Tuesday

Thought it was a great episode. Entering the Pearson No Fly Zone was great. Hope they do it again, because it needs to happen. Kate needs it next in a big way. Because she and her mom have issues.

And Randall? All his are daddy issues, totally different from Kate. And we have seen them play out more on screen since the first episode. Kevin still needs some closure, but Kate needs a major turn.

My OnDemand is way behind, so I just watched The Fifth Wheel last night.

Thought it was a great episode as well, but like Lawboy, thought it needed to continue further. Never been in therapy (probably need it), but without a doubt, our trio needs a lot more help.

Kate was totally devastated by the statement made by Kevin. That they all had that "addiction-gene".

Thought Randall was going to pop Kevin about Rebecca. 'Don't talk about my mother! Oh yeah, she's your mother too.' Glad I wasn't the only one to notice Randall was her favorite. She gave a reason, but I can't remember what it was.

I was taken aback by Miguel's comments to the other "outsiders". "I married by best friends wife." When you put it like that, just damn.

And Brdmom, now I know what you meant by Kevin's therapist. It was "Sally", from Scandal.

Re: This Is Us - NBC Tuesday

A solid follow up to last week. Some tough questions got asked and answered. I think this will really help Kevin pull some crap together, getting past some teenangst and baggage. And seeing it is ok to move on and be happy, in spite of tragedy.

I swear people watch this show just to cry, and to feel like they aren't as messed up as the Pearson kids are emotionally. It's like TV therapy for some people. My wife included.

Somebody - maybe here, maybe other comments place, said they thought Kate and Kevin's issues in particular would be more believable if they were 5 - 10 years younger. Should people in their late 30s be still dealing with childhood issues? Their dad died twenty years ago. My dad died when I was six, and it was definitely traumatic, but I had worked through a lot of my stuff by my mid-thirties.
On the other hand, my step-sibs took a long, long time to accept my mother, and they were in their twenties when their mom died, and their dad remarried about five years after her death.

It was a good episode, as always. I love Beth. She's a saint.

That was me. I said it because my parents divorced when I was 12, dad remarried when I was 20, and my mom still hasn't 35 years later. But we worked through those issues, and I found myself in my late 20s early 30s when it happened. 36 just seems really late to me is all. At least for all of them to deal with stuff. you'd think at least 1 of them would be over it by now.

Just my opinion. No idea. People are all wired different I guess.

I think you could make the argument that Randall had worked through his "stuff" (except for accepting Miguel), but it all got stirred up when he found his birth dad, which makes sense.

Do we know exactly how Randall finally found his birth dad?
