TV Spotlight: This Is Us
Wed, 10/11/2017 - 1:51pm by manz
This Is Us is now airing its second season on NBC, but you might want to start with season one. I have thoroughly enjoyed this show much more than I thought I would, and the buzz around the show is fully warranted. I recommend reading as little about it as you can, and then just dive in. Not knowing much about the premise or the set-up will pay off in the end. So, with that in mind, here's the gist.
The show is about family, relationships, and life. But it's done in such a creative, thoughtful way that interweaves lives and timelines as the season progress. The characters are so lovable, you can't help but root for them as life's challenges come their way. Every episode had me both smiling and crying. The show recently picked up two Emmy Awards for acting and casting, because wow, these actors do an amazing job and there is such chemistry among them on screen.
I can't wait to watch this!!!
