    I disagree. Sterling K. Brown is brilliant as Randall. I do agree that Mandy Moore deserved a nom, though.

      It’s not that Sterling wasn’t brilliant but Justin and Milo were showcased much better last season.

        • [spoiler:2x5apdne]This Is Us Season 3 Will Spend A Lot Of Time With Jack In Vietnam

          The new season will "break all the rules" and jump into decades it never has before.

          It has been way, way, way too long since the Pearsons were last on our screen, although the hiatus has at least given us time to recover from the emotional rollercoaster of that finale. Season 3 will premiere on NBC next month, September 25, and a few new details have begun to emerge thanks to executive producers Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker.

          We’re breaking all the rules,” Aptaker told journalists at the Television Critics Association press tour today (August 8), teasing that the third season will jump to decades that the show has never tackled before. And given the flash-forwards that were newly introduced towards the end of last season, you can assume some of those new decades may be is the future.

          “[Season 3 is] bigger and more ambitious on a production level,” Berger said, confirming that a substantial part of the new season will take place in Vietnam. Last season brought glimpses of Jack during his military days in the Vietnam war, along with the revelation that he had a brother, Nicky, who served alongside him. The role of Nicky has been cast, and while the producers weren’t ready to announce the actor yet, they confirmed that “we’re going to be spending a lot of time in Vietnam this year.”

          The show has hired novelist and Vietnam veteran Tim O’Brien, who is known for his semi-autobiographical books about the war including The Things They Carried, as a consultant on Season 3. “Since most of us were not alive during Vietnam, we wanted to have someone who was an authority,” Aptaker said. “He’s shared so much of his experience, which goes back to this idea that our show is best when it comes out of someone’s real experience.” Season 2's finale ended with a glimpse of Kevin on a flight to Vietnam with his new love interest, Beth’s cousin Zoe, suggesting that the new season will spend time there in the present day as well as flashbacks.

          Season 3 will also pick up on the Big Three’s 38th birthday, following the show’s established tradition. “In a show that plays around so much with time, there’s something nice in that [consistency], it grounds everyone,” said Aptaker.

          • [spoiler:it2xuz33]I love how they refuse to completely remove Jack from the show. Hope they don't overdo it with the Vietnam scenes, though.[/spoiler:it2xuz33]

            • I've binged the front half of S3 over the last couple of weeks and enjoyed it much more than I expected. I'm not normally a fan of war storylines but am totally invested in this one, mainly due to Milo playing a blinder (though I don't care about Nicky one bit).

              Highlight of the season so far has been the Tess stuff, the actress playing her did a fantastic job with the coming out storyline.

                  It's still airing. Personally I'm not a fan of this season so far. The Vietnam storyline is boring af and the twist there was predictable. Hopefully it's just a one season slump for me as the first two seasons were a really solid family drama with a very unique approach.

                  • I feel like it’s definitely lost some of the joy that the first two seasons had. Also, I feel like they haven’t done much with Rebecca this season.

                    • Season 3 is finally on Amazon Prime in the UK so I’m gonna catch up.

                      I heard it was renewed until season 6!

                      • I’ve only really watched the first two episodes of S4, I do wanna keep watching it but it’s just not on my must-see list (as good as it is). New Amsterdam is my new This Is Us.

                            Aw, I’m sorry to hear that. I can understand why, the show certainly pulls on the paternal heartstrings.

                              • I loved this show in S1 and S2, but S3 bored me. The Vietnam storyline especially. Haven't started on S4. Kind of forgot about this show. Might catch up over summer after the season ends.

                                • I’ve just finished season 3, it got so much better in the second half once they left Vietnam behind. Jack’s brother really was a pain in the ass.

                                  I’m so glad Randall and Beth stayed together, Kate’s baby lived, and I loved seeing the little reveals in the flash forward.

                                  Rebecca as an old ill woman though... so sad.

                                  • I don't know why I stopped watching this show, perhaps because it made me cry too much LOL. Gonna catch up soon.
