Storyline

Five specific periods in Jack's life are presented largely in reverse order: late 1971, late 1970, 1969, 1955, and October 18, 1948. Each successive time period shown provides some explanation as to what happens in the later years, from his unhappy and bitter home life with his abusive father to his decision to enlist in the Vietnam War in spite of the fact that he had a medical exemption. But everything done in Jack's life up to this point in time is largely in service to one specific task: to be his younger brother Nicky's protector, with the reason behind him taking on this role with all fiber of his being explained.

Boring!
18 October 2018 | by tombohache10-152-872423See all my reviews

I LOVE this show, so I was so disappointed by this episode, which was extremely boring. Did they have to devote the entire episode to the Jack back-story? One of the best things about This Is Us is the way they intercut the various stories and time periods. This seemed like a whole different series. It would've been better if they had let the story of Jack and his brother unfold, instead of throwing so much at us all at once.
