However, this show is too smart to let itself only be about anger and sadness and isn't afraid to be silly or snarky. The lighthearted moments demonstrate how important humor is in any aspect of life, even you're grieving. They also make sad moments all the more devastating.
The show's tone often turns on a dime, which means the audience doesn't always get a chance to really appreciate every sarcastic one-liner or crazy gesture. Let's change that and take a look back at some of the times A Million Little Things wanted us to laugh through our tears.
