What to Watch:‘This is Us’

By Celest Castellanos Posted May 9, 2018

“This Is Us” is a show that first aired two years ago on NBC. The show is watched by twenty-six point eight million people and is rated a 9.3.

With many great reviews, it is about the Pearson family’s generational story, talking about all the drama and emotional events that take place. The show has earned many awards such as the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series, and the People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama.

In the show, there is a lot of love and care that all children receive from their parents Jack and Rebecca. The kids are triplets, Kate, Randall, and Kevin. Once they grow up, they find out about tragic events that happened in their past childhood. These are some of the many storylines that happen today.

A very tragic event that happens is when the triplets’ dad dies in a fire that started in their house while they all slept. The father passed away by getting his whole family out of the house and going back to save the family dog. Once this tragic event happens, the mother, Rebecca has to take care of the children and struggle with the pain.

While watching, you have to acknowledge many different scenes, because it switches from the triplet’s childhood to adulthood in every single episode.

There are two seasons so far but more seasons are being filmed. Season one has 18 episodes and season two has 17 episodes. “This Is Us” has a sad, unique storyline to it, and will take an hour to watch each episode.

After each episode of “This is Us”, it will give you a feeling of being more appreciative of life and everything you have. I am glad a show like “This is Us” is on television because it gives us a sense of being more humble but also to relate to life events. It is sometimes nice to watch a sad TV show.
