This Is Us

Don’t watch this show. It’s emotionally manipulative from beginning to end.

We started watching it years ago and I put the brakes on a couple episodes short of the end of season 2.

My wife recently picked it up again and is watching it from beginning to end.

I’m not.

I stopped watching it for good reason and every time I sit with her for a few minutes to see what’s going on, I’m reminded of why that was and why I’m not watching it now.

The show is designed to tug on your heartstrings and make you cry. I’m not talking about season ending dramatic climaxes or anything. I’m talking about EVERY SINGLE EPISODE.

I’ve done the math. At an average of 1 tsp of tears per episode, this series will cost you A FULL PINT OF TEARS.

It’s not worth it.
