This Is Us

The schmaltz continues in the second episode of the US drama, but it’s got us hooked.

In the 1980s, Jack and Rebecca are struggling with parenting eight-year-old triplets and are beginning to drift apart. In the present day, the siblings are all struggling with their own issues.

Kevin is facing up to the consequences of quitting The Man-ny, Kate is having a hard time with her weight, and Randall’s family are dealing with the presence of his biological father in their life.

It’s the supporting cast who add real light to this series, however. Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy matriarch Gemma) appears as Kevin’s no-nonsense agent.
