Critic Reviews for This Is Us Season 1

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (29)

It's that juxtaposition of ups and downs-those contrasting emotions-that makes this such a gripping show.

This Is Us is the kind of sentimental family-driven TV show with a tone similar to the likes of Parenthood or Brothers and Sisters. It sort of like a hug - warm and comfortable - but always bordering on being too much.

It's not often that my opinion of a series bounces around a lot as I watch the pilot and with this one, it definitely did-and that's a good thing, a very good thing.

Top Critic

A piece of television-interrupted by commercial breaks, no less-that actually succeeds in eliciting a good, old-fashioned catharsis-cry.

What starts as a well-made and sticky network drama becomes a stealth stink bomb, steadily emitting toxic fumes, until its stench -- rotten cheesy, fetid corny -- is overpowering.

The acting is top-notch, especially guest star Gerald McRaney as everyone's dream doctor, but is there enough of a network audience to keep such an effort on the air? "Parenthood" survived - but just barely.

The drama is easy watching with the desired emotional kick that leaves you feeling quietly warm inside. Similar to The Good Wife and Brothers And Sisters, it's a family drama at heart.

The seeds of the characters' arcs are planted, but it remains to be seen if they can grow to fruition.

This is Us is original and has a lot of personality. [Full Review in Spanish]

The show's overall interest is family, rather than scandal or shock. That's likely why it's scoring big numbers with viewers of all ages, included those elusive millennials.
