This Is Us: Something Resembling Lemonade

We’re nearly at the end of the fifth season of Giant Geek vs. Mega n00b, but there’s still a lot we haven’t done (just you wait). This week, we talked about the super-zeitgeisty new TV show “This Is Us,” and — unlike most weeks, when the n00b enters with very little knowledge — that zeitgeistiness put Emily and myself at odds from minute one.

In case you’ve missed the polarizing cultural discussion, “This Is Us” is a dramedy about the intersecting lives and families of four people with the same birthday. And that’s all I’ll say about it because, in my opinion, you should not read anything being written about the show. Just go watch it and decide for yourself!

For this episode, we watched the first three episodes of “This Is Us,” which are called “Pilot,” “The Big Three,” and “Kyle.” You can stream them from Hulu or buy them for $2 each from Amazon, iTunes, Vudu and Google Play. Or, at least at the time of this writing, you can also stream those episodes for free with advertisements from the NBC website.
