Imagine a world where This Is Us didn’t exist. An alternate reality where nobody talks, cries, or laught with this beloved series. A universe where there’s no Jack or Rebecca Pearson, nor their “big three”. Awful, right? Well, that’s how Kim Kardashian has been living all this time. But Justin Hartley is determined to get her out of her misery.
On Tuesday morning, Kim Kardashian did a small survey with her 58.8 million followers on Twitter about a momentous topic: This Is Us. Between taking care of her new born, baby Chicago, and becoming even richer with her cosmetics emporium, it seems that Mrs. West has been way too busy to keep up with the Pearsons—until now.
“I’m starting to watch This Is Us,” Kardashian announced on a tweet. “Who watches it? Is it good?”
The replies from her followers were overwhelmingly positive—as expected, duh. But among the endless fans recommending the series and the many warnings to have a box of tissues nearby (‘cause boy, oh, boy, you best believe she’s going to need them!), there was one particular testimony that stood out: that of Kevin Pearson himself, a.k.a. Number One, a.k.a. actor Justin Hartley.
“I watch it,” Hartley joked. “I think it’s worth a look. If it were me, I would watch it from the beginning. A good time to start if you ask me. Not too along in the series yet enough episodes to binge if you feel,” he kept going in attempt to make his case. “You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… #ThisIsUs”
Sure—some may say Hartley’s opinion is a bit biased. But anyone who has watch the series know that Justin is not lying—not only because This Is Us is in fact everything he said (and more!), but also because he is the son of Jack Pearson, meaning Kevin (Justin) was raised to be a good man, so he doesn’t lie.
So, Kim, take the advice. We’ll keep track of your Twitter, so please, feel free to let us know how you feel once you get to that dreaded episode. Now—let us go back to our corner and cry ourselves to death.
