Yeah, that would be almost as big a leap as everyone significant in Star Wars having a direct relationship to the Skywalker family.

re: This is Us Season 5 thread
Watched it last night. Caught myself not paying attention a number of times. I'm not sure I'm going to stick with it if there's a lot of Covid, politics, racial tension etc... I can watch the news for that, but I don't. I'm tired of it all. I was looking forward to the Pearsons, but it wasn't as interesting as I expected.

This. It was fine, in the first few seasons, but after they explained how Jack died they should have just focused on the now. I don't need to know every detail of these characters. I feel like I know enough.

And Randall's mom being alive is such a yawn to me. I assume Randall will find her just as Rebecca is dying.

Of course Randall’s mom is alive. Guess they were desperate for plot points. Stupid


How are they going to explain that she never went back to her home/apartment where William continued to live after he thought she had OD'd? There's supposed to be a believable story line that she is revived, goes to the hospital, sobers up, then just leaves the hospital to start a new life somewhere with just the OD vomit clothes on her back?

I agree. I just shook my head. It's getting less and less believable. Just tell us what you need to tell us about Rebecca and Miguel's love story that's supposed to be so jaw dropping or moving or whatever and then I can move on to something else.

While I’m not crazy about this storyline they covered this last night. He didn’t get off of the bus at his apartment, Insinuating that he never went back to that particular apartment.

It was the same apartment. He stayed there for decades.

I'd bet Laurel realized it was a toxic situation and made the decision not to go back and hopefully got cleaned up.

Just watched it. I lived 2020 - I don’t need a show reminding me of everything in it. I found myself not paying as close attention this episode as it was slow.

The biggest crap scene to me was Randall being pissed at his sister who has been 100% a loving sister for his entire life that she never broached the subject of police brutality with him EVEN THOUGH HE NEVER BROUGHT IT UP EITHER.

Plot twist: she had oxygen-deprivation-induced amnesia.

See, I found Kate's "white gurl BLM ally" schtick tedious, yet 100% on-brand for what is likely the most loathsome prime time character on network television. That's exactly how west coast white liberals act, so I wasn't even shocked.

I think this plot device is one of the worst aspects of the show. Would not surprise me at all if the finale is that the mom actually gave birth to twins and Randall has a twin sister somewhere. Honestly the show should have ended with Jack's death, at this point they are just dragging it out.

They are going to go all in on BLM and Randall's family struggles as they have been the fan favs. It will drive a lot of people away but its really the only direction the show can go in that makes any sense.

Everyone hates Kate.
Kevin isn't really an interesting storyline.
The mom is about to die.
They have told Jacks entire story.
The season was always going to be about Randall. I don't know how he can be the focus and it not also be about BLM given the current situation in the country.

I think this is the main problem with the entire movement in this country right now.

On top of that, when people do start realizing the injustices & WANT to be a part of the solution going forward-they are told to shut up, stop appropriating, stop trying to atone for your white guilt to make YOU feel better. So, what's your actual end goal for your movement? Better be careful about that end goal(s) be/c there are still realities of race population majority & the "power" status.

What? Kevin is the most complex character on the show, and the only adult who actually learns from his mistakes and exhibits any degree of growth.

quote:

The mom is about to die.


Rebecca doesn't die for at least 10-12 years. Look at the age of Kevin's twins. They haven't built house above the cabin that Jack design. Kevin's 100% silver fox in that flash forward to being beside Rebecca's bed. Nicky gets married.
quote:

They have told Jacks entire story.

There's still a lot in the tank regarding Jack, particularly his and Nicky's relationship with their dad. Pops Pearson was a loving, attentive father up until the point Nicky was born. When Jack & Nicky are middle school-aged, we see their dad has made the transformation to full-on alcoholic a-hole.

We don't have an explanation for that transformation.

Bump

I liked how they’ve got the kids up to going through puberty.. curious to see how that goes and how kates insecurity grows even more from that age

I love Kevin’s character, he’s my favorite of the big 3.

Randall getting nervous AF with the girl who wanted to kiss him.. felt for him there...

Sooo Randall’s mom almost dies and then goes to Vietnam?


Alrighty then.

Is this dumb show still milking the hell out if the dead father and is that fat ugly land whale still getting screen time?

Still don’t get the appeal of this schlock.

re: This is Us Season 5 thread
Yeah they are doing way too much with Covid

Kevin taking a “ socially distance selfie” with a fan made me want to walk into traffic .

Kate and her stupid redneck teeth mask was so dumb . She looks like a Lincoln Navigator from behind. She really is huge

Kevin is amazing. Every episode with Madison makes me like her even more.

Randall doesn't deserve Beth. His playing 4 decades of catch-up to rediscover his blackness is exhausting.

I'm assuming that the woman in the picture with the Vietnamese grandfather on the boat is Randall's mom.
