THIS IS US is an American TV series airing on NBC Channel. It is created by Dan Fogelman, American television producer and screenwriter known for Crazy, Stupid, Love….Cars…..Tangled and a number of various TV series. The cast includes Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley and many more.
This is Us, is a refreshing break from the typical murder mysteries, or the hospital romances. It is a warm, comforting, brutally honest show which fills the gap “Parenthood” left us with.
This is Us, celebrates life. It is a sentimental drama where tragedy and happiness entwine. It is about family…..about life……how it connects us and how people who share the same birthday are different and alike.
I had been wanting to watch this series ever since the billboards were put up waay back in July and 7 episodes in, I am completely hooked.
You will be laughing and crying and the same moment. The acting is spot-on, the dialogues could not have been better and the twists choke you. Every episode ends with a twist or a reveal, satisfying and leaving you with wanting to see more at the same time.
It is a heart-warming, honest, shattering, beautiful series which makes you realize that we all are connected some way. Do keep a box of tissues nearby or get ready to blame the allergies for making your eyes watery, but trust me that every episode will make you feel happy in the end.
Do watch the Pilot episode and decide for yourself and if you do get hooked on liked me, let me know so we can sigh together and lets hope that it continues to deliver such sentimental moments.
With a rating of 8.8 on IMDB, 91% on Rotten Tomatoes and 8.6 on TV.com this is one series, you don’t wanna miss. You can also watch it on Hulu, YouTube, Amazon, Vudu and Google Play.
(P.S – I think Gerald McRaney deserves an Emmy for his role ALREADY!!!)
