The fall is the perfect time to get hooked on a brand new show. The weather is getting colder, there is not that many activities to do and school is back so you always need a good distraction. With all the fall premieres coming up its hard to choose which show you can really focus on because you can’t possibly get hooked on all of them. One show I do recommend that will be worth watching is this new show that just premiered 3 weeks ago called “This is Us.”
The show stars Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia and some other familiar and not so familiar faces. This show is definitely one of my favorite shows right now and is an awesome addition to prime time television. Here are a few reasons why I think you should give this show a chance:
- The Storyline!
The show follows a group of people with the same birthday, including a married couple who are expecting triplets, a handsome television actor and his twin sister who is dealing with being overweight and a successful businessman who wants to connect with his biological father. It’s a show that everyone could connect with because it deals with real problems. Yea I know you are probably rolling your eyes already because this all sounds so cliché. This leads me to my second point.
When you first watch the trailer you automatically think that this is a new mushy show that has a bunch of useless drama. But there is more to it I promise! I am only three weeks in and the show took me places I did not expect AT ALL. The show is constantly catching your attention. You are left speechless at the end of each episode.
- Different feel to TV
There are a lot of drama shows on TV today, crime shows, hospital shows, other action type shows. This brings a different light to TV and finally a new topic. It also looks different from other shows. It almost gives an Indie movie type feel, like you’re watching a little short film each week. The camera angles really play well with the storyline using a lot of close up shots allowing you to really connect with each character on an emotional level that you wouldn’t expect to connect with a character on a TV show. You will fall in love with these characters!
- Just watch the pilot
If none of these reason convince you to go home and watch this show, then at least give the pilot a chance. I can guarantee you by the end of the episode you will be looking at this show differently. If you hate it then I am sorry for allowing you to waste 45 minutes of your day on it but at least you gave it a chance.
