This Is Us premiere spoilers is definitely a tearjerker, to say the least. This no nonsense, genuine heartfelt drama goes straight for your emo spot and make you laugh and cry at the same time.
On the pilot episode, you’ll get to meet the lovable cast. Initially, they don’t seem to have any connection at all except for the fact that they all have the same birthdays. Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and his hugely pregnant wife Rebecca (Mandy Moore) head to the labor room instead of going to his party.
Twins Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Kate (Chrissy Metz) also celebrate their not so fun 36th birthday. Kate is struggling with her own weight issues while Kevin is a TV star for a sitcom he knows is nothing but 100% nonsense. In the meantime, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) finds himself looking for his father on the day of his birthday. His father abandoned him in front of a fire station almost four decades before.
A Breath Of Fresh Air, Finally
Initially, watching the first part of the premiere spoiler will make you cringe. You may think it’s too earnest for comfort. But as you continue watching, you’ll understand why you can’t stop. The script is so good it will make you feel things you probably haven’t felt in a long time while watching a dramadey.
It’s serious where it matters, but the creators also know how to inject humor where it’s needed. Every character gives an outstanding performance. People in very different, very real situations you can actually relate to it. Indeed, series creator Dan Fogelman is a genius!
At the beginning of the story, it’s really hard to know how these characters are intertwined. Perhaps they will all get connected by an important event that is yet to occur. Nevertheless you’ll find that out at the end of the episode. It’s worth waiting for, by the way. The scope of the series is larger than you might think. Simply put, it’s a very good story. And you can’t put a good story down!
So for those of you looking for a fresh take on a new drama series, don’t miss out on its premiere episode. This Is Us premieres on Tuesday, September 20, 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
