This is Us
« on: January 07, 2018, 03:28:04 PM »

Has anyone watched this series? I have been watching it on Netflix and find it interesting. The topics of adoption, inter racial adoption and the dynamics between the adopted sibling and the bio siblings is interesting to me. Also the whole story of finding the birth father and all this brings up is interesting to watch. I tried to get my kid, who is almost 14 to watch it but he isn't interested. Anyone else watch it?

I watched it in the beginning, then got sidetracked.  I've seen a few episodes recently.  I really liked the interaction with the adoption storyline as well.

I binge watched the first season on demand and really liked the transracial adoption narrative but the show as a whole was too negative and sad for me. I also liked how it addressed issues of masculinity and fatherhood. I didn’t find any of the female characters compelling.
