This Is Us, the series that broke the most viewed trailer record, debuted yesterday in the USA. With promises to be the new Parenthood, the premiere was long awaited by the audience.
This Is Us it has a cross-life style plot. In this pilot, four people are celebrating their birthday on the same day - and all of them are turning 36. Each with its history and its problems. Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) is about to be the father of triplets, who are already starting to mess up wanting to be born in the middle of the intimate celebration of Jack and his wife, Rebecca (Mandy Moore). Kate (Chrissy Metz) it's your brother Kevin (Justin Hartley) are going through an identity crisis when they turn 36 and realize that they don't like their lives, she for being obese and he for being an actor known for an empty role. Finally, we have the problem of Randall (Sterling K. Brown), who on his 36th birthday managed to locate his biological father, whom he resents for being abandoned.
At the beginning the episode seems very cliché, with the famous personal problems of each one, of the dramalhão type. However, it seems that this was only used to introduce the characters, the main focus is the link between the three stories. Throughout the events, we realized that their bond goes beyond their birth date, but we will find out more about that in the future.
The pace and theme of This Is Us give the impression that the NBC is trying to rescue two of his old series, Friday Night Lights and Parenthood. I do not doubt that both were an inspiration for the creation of this beginner and there is no problem with that! Both series have left orphans who will love to see something that looks like them.
This pilot starts in the drama, but as events unfold, he shows a beautiful and positive side. Even with misfortunes happening, the message is clear, always look on the bright side and overcome the problems.
With a simple yet captivating storyline, This Is Us presents your proposal well and leaves a final strategic hook, which does not fail to whet our curiosity and leave us anxiously waiting for the next episode. If the series can keep pace, we have a very promising season ahead.
