With so many characters, it can sometimes be easy to overlook some of the biggest details these writers have cleverly mapped out for us to enjoy.
This Is Us first aired back on September 20, 2016, and has successfully won the hearts of the critics and the nation. It has already been nominated for several awards, including a Critics’ Choice Award and a Golden Globe, but just what is the show about? This Is Us follows the lives of the Pearsons. Parents Jack (portrayed by Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (portrayed by Mandy Moore) are tasked with raising their three triplets: Randall, Kate, and Kevin (portrayed by Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, and Justin Hartley respectively). However, life in this family home isn’t all it seems. One of the triplets was actually adopted after Jack and Kate suffered a stillborn birth, in addition to a further loss in the family. The traumatic events that unfold throughout the series push this family unit to the brink as they must come together to work through the tough times. Will they be able to make it?
