My Dad is Jack from this is us. The man we can't stop talking about. The man who everybody relates to in a I wanna be like him kind of way. The strong, the steady, the pleasing. The loving. Jack, is my father.
If you take away the alcoholic part and the he died after the fire part, he is still my Dad. And in realizing this while sobbing through the super bowl episode, followed by last night, I realized why this realization matters. Why this show is so important. And not just to me, but to 40 million viewers.
