I’ve watched since the beginning but I do feel the show has run its course and should go out on top. I’ll miss the wonderful acting, especially from Chrissy Metz and Susan Kelechi Watson, and the soulful work of Mandy Moore and gorgeous Milo Ventimiglia. I wish them all well in future endeavors. I also loved that Rebecca was such a huge fan of Joni Mitchell. Me too.

Me too. And if you have not yet seen the Kennedy Award dedication to Joni that aired shortly before Christmas this year, you should seek it out. The whole show was pretty fantastic but it does begin with the dedication to Joni.

Oh Margherita, I usually hate those shows because the singers they choose normally butcher the songs. But I was pretty happy with these, especially the divine Norah Jones. Joni is such an important part of my life (and countless others), she deserves great treatment. However, I was dismally disappointed over the Bette Midler “salute”. FRIENDS was sung out of tune by, not one, but THREE awful singers and Billy Porter was too over the top. And how do you honor Bette without mentioning her second Oscar nomination in FOR THE BOYS and no one performed her Grammy winning classic THE… Read more »

I agree on the Bette tribute for I learned how to play the piano by being inspired by THE ROSE. I would race home to play it and sing it at the top of my lungs, in both my home and at sleep away camp – that was very very unfortunate misstep and I’m guessing Bette wasn’t happy about it either. Though she definitely deserved the honor.

Kudos to you, Margherita, as well as Soaphound. I am with you both regarding Bette.

Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun’s love
In the spring becomes the rose” 🙂

Margherita, looks like we’re kindred THE ROSE spirits. After 40-plus years, it remains my favorite pop record and ONLY by Bette. I prefer the soundtrack version to the single because it’s just piano & vocal. And though I never got proficient in piano, I can still play the melody of THE ROSE. At the end, when it gets very quiet and Bette sings…”lies the seed that with the sun’s love..”, I still get chills at the awesome beauty of it. Oh, and I watched GL for about 38 years, until the sad end. Still miss Reva and Kim Zimmer. BTW,… Read more »

I really love This Is Us, the characters, the cast, the stories. And I realize I need to have a very large supply of tissues on hand for this season. I’ve got them ready. Bring it on.

I too think the show has run its course. I will go further and say that in my opinion 2-3 seasons would have been enough. After that its felt as if its lost its original story – not wording that very well – and I’m sure I’m in a huge minority in saying so.

It had 5 seasons–
It should have concluded after the 2nd-
It didn’t seem like it was meant to be a long-running show-
The 1st two seasons were good-
After that, it was downhill for the following three seasons-
Now there is the 6th season–
I might watch the last 2 episodes of season 6 just to see the ending.
I wish the actors a great new beginning–

I hope Mandy Moore gets some recognition this season. She should have won an Emmy for at least two of these seasons.

I think six is the right number, and I still live the show every bit as much as I did when it started. Last season, IMO was one of its best seasons.
