This is Us provides a provoking life lesson in each episode

The recently created show, This Is Us, has become a new hit show. It stars Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia as a young married couple. It airs every Tuesday on NBC. This is the first season of This Is Us, and it has already accumulated 10 million viewers each week. The show has just announced that it has been renewed for at least two more seasons.

The show consists of two story plots. The story lines are the past and present of a family. It starts with a young couple that has three triplets (Kevin, Kate, and Randall), later referred to as “The Big Three,” and their family life as they grow up. The second story line includes “The Big Three” grown up to the age of thirty-six, and includes the ups and downs of their adult lives. Randall has a family of his own, Kevin is working in the entertainment industry, and Kate is battling with a treacherous journey to lose weight. It is not only intriguing to see each life for each individual, but also how they all connect together.

Throughout each episode, there is a different theme or life lesson that is taught through each character’s current living situation. Whether the lesson is to “forgive others because they forgive youa�� or that “love conquers all,’ each episode ends, making you think of something .

This Is Us has become a show that my mom and I watch together each week. It is a time for us to sit back and relax, but also reflect on events that happen each day. Before we started watching the show, we were told that once you start, it will be hard to stop, and I agree that that statement is one hundred percent correct. It has become an addiction, and I give it a 10/10, and recommend it to any people even slightly interested.

“First came me. Dad said ‘gee.’ Then came me. Mom said ‘we.’ Then came me. They said ‘that’s three.’ Big three, big three…”
