There is very little that can be done to make “This Is Us” better. It is pitch perfect. But, somehow, Ellen Degeneres found a way. She was inspired by Mandy Moore’s legendary game of “Speak Out” to add something new to the show. We aren’t sure if it makes the show better or infinitely better.
Maybe it’s worse. I don’t know. That GIF is making me think it is a lot worse. But it really does add some humor to an otherwise appropriately dramatic scene. I give it a gentle Randall clap.
I was just hoping that they were going to have her tell Jack “A donkey bucked my mom.” That would have been amazing.
