{this is us} 19/31 #sol17

The March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers.
Join us for a month of writing!

Ok. We are late to the party. Life is busy and we really don't watch much TV. Some HGTV or a Blackhawks hockey game. 

"Oh, did you watch This Is Us last night?" My friend questioned.

"You don't watch This Is Us? Oh, you need to!" My neighbor said.

"I can't believe you don't watch it. You really should." My colleague suggested.

So many conversations about this show. Even Loralee mentioned it in a slice this week.

This prompted me to ask my husband last night, after the girls were in bed, if he wanted to watch it.

He was game. We started with one episode. We were hooked. What an ending! We had to watch another episode. 

We have never binge watched TV before. Jon even stayed awake past his usual nap time at 8 o'clock. 

After two episodes, it was late. I was getting sleepy. But we made it through another episode. Three episodes.

Thank you all for the suggestion to start watching. Here we are again tonight watching episode number four. 

{Update after finishing episode four. My husband quickly says: "Please tell me one more. This show is just too good." We just started episode five ... }

We'll get caught up soon enough to chat more about ... This Is Us.


  1. Ha! Ha! Some shows are so addicting! Happy binge watching!

  2. I haven't watched a full episode yet, but I have a feeling that if I give myself the time, I'll be hooked.

  3. Don't you love how the characters are related? Such a well-written show!!

  4. I haven't watched it either. But it sure seems like a lot of people are talking about it.

  5. It's great that both of you wish to watch the show.

  6. Three teachers told me I HAD to watch "This Is Us." It wasn't until the activity bus driver told me that I thought... okay. It's time. My hubby and I finally caught up last night. We love how it emphasizes that EVERYBODY has a STORY. Enjoy the ride!

  7. We haven't watched it either. Guess we need to see what it's all about. Love ya, Mom

  8. Michelle! I giggled when I read this slice!
    I love that you are enjoying the stories of the Pearson family together!

    1. I was so happy when season 2 started! :0)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
