Storyline

Six Thanksgivings, covering close to fifty years, are presented, listed below in chronological order. One is in Vietnam, Jack recently having arranged for Nick to join his company as a medic. Nick is harboring some anger, the reasons unknown to Jack. That reason may come to light as Jack tries to help a struggling family in the village consisting of an old man, a young woman and the woman's adolescent son. Two is in 1997. With Shelley having taken their kids, Andy and Amber, to have Thanksgiving with her family, Miguel is invited for the first time to spend Thanksgiving with the Pearsons. Miguel has largely been an absent father in trying to provide for the family, Shelley who he believes is now turning their children against him. Seeing the happy Pearsons may be too difficult for him to handle, today which is affected by Randall working on what he considers the flawed question he has to answer for a college entrance application. Three is the first Thanksgiving spent together by ... Written by Huggo

Just when you thought Jack was the perfect man...
4 November 2019 | by oznozSee all my reviews

This show, man... sheesh... Jack has been giving me a high man-standard bar to aim for since day one, but this episode we get new MVP entries from Toby, Miguel, young Jack (at least twice, maybe three times being a better man than I could ever hope), young Randall, and, right at the top of the show, adult Randall sending the dad-bod underwear standard stratospheric. Also Kate does good, Tess drops bombs, and Kevin and his not-girlfriend-who-are-totally-falling-in-love take strides together. This is nearly Capra-level down-home goodness, but it's not just good it's really well done, annman, I love it.
