This Is Us

This is real. This is love. This is life.

I have to say that after the first episode I was reluctant to watch because I just knew I would be crying. Tears do not explain how I have felt getting through this first few seasons.

Seeing these babies grown with thier own problems and families shows us that what we does as parents matter. The mistakes, the things we thing we’re hiding, kids know it all.

I’m not giving any spoilers, but I am saying that if you love a drama that reminds you of a Nicholas Sparks movie, then I don’t know why you’re not watching this show. I am not all the way caught up, but this was something I knew I needed to review. This is more than love, this is real, this is life.

This show has the right people playing the right parts Ryan Tymensky is a great casting associate and Ken Olin is an awesome Director. But I have to give props to the writers on this one. Dan Fogelman (the creator), Kay Oyegun, Jas Waters, Aurin Spears, Isaac Aptaker, Elizabeth Berger, Vera Herbert, K.J. Steinberg, Bekah Brunstetter, Joe Lawson, Donald Todd, Laura Kenar, Don Roos, Shukree Tilghman, Tyler Bensinger and Rebecca Brunstetter are amazing writers who have created amazing story that has taken all of us by our hearts.

People always give a lot of credit to the actors or the directors but none to the writers who spend many hours creating and discussing whats going to happen next before the the actors even know. The writers capture the voice and stories that each character carries over to the cast and the director.

I am at awe at the whole story behind this and cannot wait to see where it takes us. I am definitely along for the ride.
