This Is Us- Season 3
Since there was a thread on Season 2 and didn't see a thread about the current season, figured I'd start one.
Thoughts so far on this season?
For me, I've been enjoying it so far. It was interesting to watch nothing but a Jack episode in going to Vietnam and watching how they made Jack's father become a "bad" dad because of alcohol (or at least, that seem to be the interpretation from showing Jack's dad at the hospital saying that he doesn't drink).
Also, because it's tv world, do we think that Kate is going to a) get pregnant and if so, b) have a successful pregnancy and her and Toby will have a baby?
For Kevin, I'm not really sure why they have him kind of flipping out about not knowing about his dad's time in Vietnam. As a young child, you're probably not going to ask and maybe when you're in high school and studying about the war, then you might ask but it's also possible that you don't really think or care to ask. And then with Jack dying so young, it's not like Kevin could have talked about it with Jack when they're both adults. So, i don't think it's that weird that he doesn't know anything about Jack's time in Vietnam. If anything, Kevin should be able to go to his mom and ask her what Jack told her because even though Jack didn't like to talk about it, at some point in their marriage, they probably did eventually or should have talked about his time there. But if they never did, i could kind of understand that.
And now that Beth got fired and Randall doesn't have a job, exactly what is their source of income? Did Randall get like a years pay as part of a severance package or something? Just seems like they live an upscale lifestyle and not sure how they can really afford to do so with no apparent income (unless the show goes the Friends route and just doesn't feel the need to address it).
