I am not a big drama fan especially when it comes to Indian TV content. They are long and boarding. But This is us is in a different league all together. I must say watching it was great fun. It was full of emotions, relation complexities and excellent acting by the lead. But the winner here is the screenplay and editing. Dealing with two to three generations and transition between different timelines is hard to achieve. Timelines are not organically shot and can get confusing.
From the acting point of view, special mention to Mandy Moore and Sterling K Brown. There were just superb. All the actors were good and did justice to their characters but these tow took it to the next level. It is also greatly enhanced by the fact that theirs was the two best flushed out characters.
This is a must watch for people who like to get invested in relationships and the series has potential to develop a great fan following. There will also be some awards coming its way and I will be waiting for the next season.
