This Is Us: What did you think?

Posted on

We finally know the twist ending of the first episode of This Is Us, and it was a good one.

The series, starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, and newly crowned Emmy winner Sterling K. Brown, has been on everyone’s mind ever since the emotional trailer hit record-breaking number of views on YouTube. And, it seems, with good reason. The show follows several characters who are the exact same age and facing a turning point in their lives, and EW’s own Jeff Jensen calls it “a 21st century thirtysomething for a TV generation that likes a splash of high concept in their shows and isn’t afraid of melodrama.”

So is that you? Now that the first episode has aired and the cards are on the table, will you keep watching? Share your thoughts by taking our poll and sounding off in the comments.

This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
