It’s hard to find a great show on TV nowadays. There are a few I watch on a regular basis that are actually surviving and thriving, like Once Upon A Time (Don’t judge me. LOL), Blackish (Love this show!), and Survivor (Yup, I still watch it.) to name a few. There are quite a few shows I thought were really good, but despite my opinion they were canceled after one season, like Stalker. Remember that one? Oh and I’ll never forget when they canceled American Dreams after the third season without a series finale. I absolutely loved American Dreams and looked forward to watching it Sunday evenings. It was a wholesome family show that was centered around two families in the 1960’s. Even though I watched it faithfully, it was canned for poor ratings. 😦
Ok, so now I absolutely love a show that started last month called, This Is Us. Here’s a synopsis copied from Wikipedia: The series follows twins Kate and Kevin along with their adopted brother Randall as their lives intertwine. Kate and Kevin were originally part of a triplet pregnancy, however their biological brother was still-born. Their parents, intent on bringing home three babies, decide to adopt another newborn (Randall) who was brought to the hospital after his father abandoned him at a fire house.
The cast is great, which includes Milo Ventimiglia, who also starred in American Dreams. HA! Imagine that. Also starring: Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, Ron Cephas Jones, Chrissy Metz, Chris Sullivan, and Susan Kelechi Watson. I won’t spoil the episodes by writing spoilers, but I will say my favorite thing about this show is that it’s centered around family. Just regular people dealing with life. No pimps, prostitutes, or basketball or hip hop wives. And so far, the ratings are good.
If you’ve watched This Is Us, tell me what you think about it. If you haven’t, give it a chance and then tell me what you think about it. LOL 😀
Just blogging it out . . .Oh, and Happy Tuesday Night!! 😀
