I was really excited to watch this show because it
looked very good after watching the trailers on NBC.
This is a show about a group of people who share the
same birthday, who come into each others' lives in very
interesting ways. The cast includes singer and actress
Mandy Moore as Rebecca, and Milo Ventimiglia ("Heroes")
as Jack, a couple who face a family tragedy. The show
is very well written and the first episode has some very
This show draws you in
right away from the first episode. You will want to find
out what happens in the lives of these complicated
characters who have happy and sad times (just like real
life). "This Is It" is the best show I've seen on TV in
a long time. I don't want to tell you much about it, so
as not to spoil it. This new show is definitely worth
putting on your DVR.
There are also some cameo
appearances by Alan Thicke ("Growing Pains") and Mario
Lopez ("Saved by the Bell") I give this show 5 out of 5
stars because I think it will be a big hit for NBC it
is. It really is appointment television.
Sometimes life will surprise you. Starring Mandy
Moore (“A Walk to Remember”), Milo Ventimiglia
(“Heroes,” “Gilmore Girls”) and Sterling K. Brown
(“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime
Story”), this refreshingly honest and provocative
series follows a unique ensemble. As their paths
cross and their life stories intertwine in curious
ways, we find that several of them share the same
birthday, and so much more than anyone would expect.
From the writer and directors of “Crazy, Stupid,
Love.” comes a smart, modern dramedy that will
challenge your everyday presumptions about the
people you think you know.
Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan,
Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones also star.
Dan Fogelman, Donald Todd, John Requa, Glenn
Ficarra, Ken Olin, Charlie Gogolak and Jess
Rosenthal executive produce. “This Is Us” is
produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
