Rebecca Pearson once had a difficult pregnancy with triplets. The resulting births occurred on the same day as her husband Jack Pearson's thirty-sixth birthday. The lives of Rebecca, Jack and their three offspring - Kevin, Kate and Randall - are presented at different points in time. The Rebecca and Jack stories generally take place during the early stage of their marriage, surrounding the birth of the three children or at different phases of the children's upbringing, which was not always smooth sailing for any of the five. Separate stories concerning Kevin, Kate and Randall are also presented in their adult years, each who has his or her own baggage resulting from that upbringing: Kevin who was generally the neglected one because he had no outward issues; Kate who has always had weight issues; Randall, the gifted one, being the visible outsider and being the "non-K" child. These stories may demonstrate the emotional ties that exist not only because of being family, but also because ... Written by Huggo

During flashbacks to the 70's and 80's that are in grocery stores, the products on the shelves are often in modern packaging. Only products that no longer exist are shown correctly. In one scene Jack is next to single serving plastic bowls of Kellogg's's cereal. These didn't exist in that time period. Only single serving boxes were available. See more »

It's 4:57 am here and In all the years of my life, this is my first review.Only because I was so amazed by this little piece of art that I just want to write.
17 October 2019 | by jasmann-narangSee all my reviews

Let me just begin(or geek out XD) by saying this show is absolutely phenomenal, for someone who can tolerate intense drama or maybe everyone. Even if you don't have a taste for drama and you start watching this show I think you'll love it. All the small moments leading up to the big ones are just timed to well, at the end of the day when I'm tired,instead of watching those sitcoms with the same stories I just watch this show to be amazed, By the warmth of the characters, their acting and of course their timing everything just so damn perfect. It's really amazed me that even after 3 seasons the flashbacks and the story that's going on in the present just make so much more sense. You know in other shows it's usually the finale in which I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and shocked,but "This is US" damn it every episode, I feel so shocked, amazed, and excited at the same time. To be able to maintain this for almost every episode is just fantabulous (*inserts more made up words). The amount of issues this show deals with is also quite vast and honestly surprising at the same time because it's so darn good. If any one of you is reading this review do know I've seen shows from Sherlock,BB,GOT to Stranger things and Sex Education, but this my God, it's just so amazing! The reason I didn't give a 10 is partly because I wanted to give 9.5 and it doesn't allow me to. The only thing that sometimes I wonder about is, the only possible"discomfort" that the critique in me could find in this is that sometimes they do not give us adequate time to deal with the sudden buildup bursting withing seconds, what I mean is, sometimes their buildup is so devastating that when it comes to rest we need a minute to react and the next second the scene has completely changed. All things aside, I'd recommend you to watch the pilot at least and then you'll understand what I mean ;)
