I had to write a whole post dedicated to my new favorite TV series, This is Us! Everyone, including my Mother-in-love, Aunt Ca, and cousins from New York have been telling me that it’s a must watch show and that I would love it as much as I love my Hallmark Channel movies. They told me I may even like them better than the Hallmark Channel movies! What? No way!
Well, this past Saturday I made myself get off my blog and decided to watch the first episode of, This is Us. Guess what? I was hooked in the first 5 minutes! And so was my husband. He ended up watching all 16 episodes in less than 24 hours. What an amazing series. I can relate in so many ways to the characters in the show. Especially the fact that I lost a baby in childbirth, have three kids, and a great husband who in many ways reminds me of Jack. I could cry. I love how Jack will do anything to bring joy to his wife and kids. He has such a great heart. That’s why he reminds me of my husband.
And I can relate to Rebecca, trying to follow her dreams and sometimes getting lost in the day. She knows her husband is better than her in many ways, but I loved how she stood up for him to one of her band members. Every episode is sad and beautiful at the same time. I love Kate and Kevin’s relationship. They’re so honest and real with each other and I love watching the special bond they share, as only twins can. It’s heartwarming. And how about the time Kevin left his show, because he knew there was something wrong with Randall and when he found Randall he held him in his arms. Cue the tissues!
I love seeing how they started their Thanksgiving family traditions (Ranger Rick episode) and continue to do them in honor of their father’s memory. There are so many questions I have, like how did Jack die and how did Rebecca end up with Miguel? Well, I guess we’ll find out and see this family story continue to unravel since, This is Us, has been signed on for two more seasons. Yay for us!
I’d love to hear what you think? Have you been watching, This is Us? What was your favorite episode and which character do you love the most? If you haven’t watched the show yet, it’s not too late! Find it on On Demand and NBC.com.
P.S. I forgot to tell you that I’m on episode 14, so hopefully after this post goes live, I’ll watch 15 and 16 before tonight’s show.
Hope you have a lovely evening! XO, Desiree
