This Is Us- is a good one.
It is different and that is a good thing.
I’ll be binge-watching through the upcoming 3 years.

It will be interesting to see it holds its steam.

((in like a lion out like a lamb)) ?? time will tell.
So far, it rocks!

I drifted away after 2 seasons. Just lost interest in the characters repeating the same lines and making the same silly decisions. But, having said that, I know what it’s like when you’re hooked on a series so a hearty congratulations to the actors and three cheers for all the fans.

I love the show. Oh good I get to see Justin Hartley for three more years.I hope he does some more comedies. Loved him in Bad Mom’s Christmas, he is one heck of a sexy and talented man.There have been times when the show has made me cry. I love Kevin.Who wouldn’t?I can feel his pain.Yes there are even times when he has made me cry. I can also relate to the depression story.It can be bad at times.Love Chrissy Metz too.

Story story story. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us care. And do not stay to long at the fair! Hopefully NBC/writers are writing with an ending in mind…it will be more of an impact knowing there is a road map. Beginning, middle,and an end. Keep us wanting more and loving the show as it ends the 6th season.
