Storyline

Rebecca Pearson once had a difficult pregnancy with triplets. The resulting births occurred on the same day as her husband Jack Pearson's thirty-sixth birthday. The lives of Rebecca, Jack and their three offspring - Kevin, Kate and Randall - are presented at different points in time. The Rebecca and Jack stories generally take place during the early stage of their marriage, surrounding the birth of the three children, or at different phases of the children's upbringing, which was not always smooth sailing for any of the five. Separate stories concerning Kevin, Kate and Randall are also presented in their adult years, each who has his or her own baggage resulting from that upbringing: Kevin who was generally the neglected one because he had no outward issues; Kate who has always had weight issues; and Randall, the gifted one, being the visible outsider and being the "non-K" child. These stories may demonstrate the emotional ties that exist not only because of being family, but also ... Written by Huggo

Mixed - and very subjective - feelings on the pilot
29 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Little things can have a big effect on your enjoyment of a show. This one instantly alienated me with the opening song, which had a kind of sensitivity-indie-schmaltzy vibe. In general I'm not a fan of using songs to convey emotion, because it's usually a cheap trick, and starting the series like that was offputting.

But I pushed on through that initial dislike, because it seemed well written and was clearly trying for something interesting.

But then I kept getting distracting by the feeling that it was just checking a lot of "Emmy-award" boxes. Let's have someone hugely overweight because it's an underrepresented group. Let's have someone black because the series has this super-white cultural quality ala shows like thirtysomething and a little color will ameliorate that. Let's get in some tears and laughter and tragedy right off the bat and make everyone really nice because we're going to be positive and uplifting.

All of which is fine - good even - but kind of bugged me.

There were moments that were terrific, like the guy's inability to say no to the father he thought he hated, or the super charming guy who hooks up with one of the main characters at the OA meeting.

Then I thought the ending was really clever. In fact, five minutes before the end of the episode I thought I wouldn't watch another, but in the end I thought I might, because I was curious where they would go from that end. I'm not certain I'll get around to watching another episode - a few years ago I thought the ending of Those Who Kill made it worth checking out another episode in spite of being underwhelmed, but I still never got around to watching it again. So we'll see.

Maybe I've just seen too many of these thirtysomething-ish series. I used to love them, and maybe if I were thirty I'd love this one. But so far I'm stuck on the fence.
