What I Watched This Week: 30 Sep 2018

This Is Us – “A Philadelphia Story” (B)
Tries to do way too much, including some necessary flashbacks to ’98 and some unnecessary ones to Randall’s dad pre-reunion. But that last moment, as Randall here’s a devastating off-hand comment from Kate (via Kevin) as the Fox fanfare plays, is perfectly done.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – “The Gang Gets New Wheels” (B)
Would have been much better if this was just “Dennis Loses His Mojo.” The other subplots are funny, but spreading each member of the Gang out on his/her own adventure dilutes the best and funniest story.

The Good Place – “The Brainy Bunch” (A-)
Yes, it felt a little weird, with all the events happening on Earth, but I find Adam Scott as the evil Trevor so irresistible, I was in stitches the entire time. And yet again, the show upends the rules we just thought we were used to, as Janet and Michael defy the entire system.
