Doom, gloom and dystopia have been all the rage both on and off the screen in 2016 so it’s little wonder that everyone’s falling head over heels for new US drama This Is Us.
The family drama with a cracking time turning twist has been winning hearts in the USA since it aired earlier this year and now Mandy Moore (who’ll you’ll remember from pretty much every other 00s teen film and as the voice of Rapunzel in Tangled) and Milo Ventimiglia (of Gilmore Girls and Heroes fame) are melting hearts in the UK too.
After a tough year, the sometimes saccharine story was JUST what the doctor ordered when it aired on Channel 4.

The clever writing and witty dialogue didn’t take long to draw people in.

And when the plot got pretty emotional, the viewers did too.
