"Friends and co-workers have been raving about the show to me non-stop... Apparently the show is simply a still shot of a dog dressed like Santa Claus."

If you’ve been anywhere near the internet lately I’m sure you’ve seen the buzz around the NBC drama series “This Is Us”. Friends and co-workers have been raving about the show to me non-stop. At first I was hesitant. Could a network drama really be that good? Didn’t shows like “Breaking Bad” and “The Sopranos” mark the virtual death of network drama? Finally, I buckled down and decided to check out “This Is Us”. Apparently the show is simply a still shot of a dog dressed like Santa Claus. Although, I may have Googled the wrong thing.
“This Is Us” has been receiving glowing reviews in its first season. The show has been hailed as the premier family drama of this generation. The heartbreaking intertwining stories of its characters have left many in tears whether from sadness or joy. For me, I think it’s fine but in the end it’s just a still photo of what seems to be some sort of boxer dog dressed as Santa Claus, the Christmas character who delivers presents for children. Again though maybe I just typed it in wrong.
I’ve always been angry with friends of mine who abandon great shows only a few episodes in. I know as well as anyone that it takes a few episodes for a show to truly get on its feet and find its voice. “This Is Us”, however, doesn’t seem to be moving in any specific direction. In fact, it doesn’t seem to be moving at all. From all I can see it is simply a photograph of a dog dressed as the jolly seasonal elf we call Santa Claus. Maybe I Googled the wrong thing though. I’m not gonna check.
