‘This Is Us’ Christmas Special on Star World Premiere HD!
With Christmas right around the corner, Star World Premiere HD is all set to play Santa with the mid-season finale of ‘This is Us’ – a Christmas special episode that keeps with the hit show’s tradition to make audiences laugh, cry and swoon, all at the same time.
The mid-season finale titled ‘Last Christmas’ is directed by Oscar Winner Helen Hunt of ‘As Good As It Gets’, ‘What Women Want’, ‘Cast Away’ and ‘Project X’ fame will air in India on Star World Premiere HD this Saturday, December 10th at 10 PM! The episode is certain to punch you in the feels at least five or six times as it showcases Christmas celebrated by the Pearson family back when Jack was alive and in the present time. And guess what? Each character gets their own story, all in this episode!
Sterling K. Brown shares why he thinks that the Christmas special episode is one of the best-written episodes of the season. “I thought that it was one of our best-written episodes of the season. I felt the way in which we flipped the structure writing-wise — it functions like six one-act plays, instead of going back and forth between the storylines through the show — gives it a breadth that you’re constantly wondering what’s going to happen next. Are we staying with this story line? Are we not going to see everybody today? And then, slowly but surely, we see the cast unfold until we all come together at the end of a pretty nice Christmas — for the most part.”
The “bloody episode” as remarked by Milo Ventimiglia, opens in the past where Kate comes down with appendicitis on Christmas Eve and so, the Pearsons take her to the hospital. As they stand by during Kate’s surgery, the family runs into Dr. K, the doctor who delivered Kate and Kevin, who they realize needs some faith and support since he is dying.
Meanwhile in the present, Kevin is at the Hanukkah celebration with Sloane’s family, Kate and Rebecca visit a doctor to discuss the life-changing surgery that Kate wants to go through, there is a shocking reveal about William’s sexuality and Toby suddenly collapses and is taken under surgery immediately.
