One of the best things about this show is how strong the characterizations are. The flashbacks are rooted in a deep sense of knowing, understanding and explaining who the characters are and how they came to be this way. Through the flashbacks they show us, piece by piece, things about the characters that they haven't spelled out about the characters in the present storyline yet (or don't talk about at all) but every moment seems important to understanding these characters. The family relationships are carefully crafted, complete with little family rituals, and showing how each and everyone relates (or related) to each other, in those little things you may have with your parents. The multiple threads are tied together surprisingly well, and rarely feel forced alltogether. So far I haven't seen a single weak episode. This Is Us really stands out from the crowd
