From the facts and figures of history to little-known answers to peculiar questions, what are the most recent searches in your Netflix and Google history?
*I’m part of the Netflix stream team and this is a question I was asked for my most recent blog post for them.
Are you sure you want to know this Netflix? Because I think I’m a little embarrassed by my recent search history.
Ok, whatever. I’ll tell you what my recent google searches were based on a Netflix show I’ve been watching. In fact, it’s a show I’m SO obsessed with at the moment and I can’t stop thinking about it. From the storyline to the characters, it’s been consuming my brain like a school girl with a crush!
Oh my god. I think it’s because I do have a crush. On one of the characters. What is happening? Is this normal? Is it normal to love a character in a show so much you can crush on them?
Well whether it is normal or not, this is what my recent searches have been while binge-watching the first season of the hit series This is us on Netflix.
Everyone told me I was going to love this show. They didn’t tell me I was going to get so consumed with it and the entire first season was going to take over my life!
In addition, this is the first show I’ve watched that makes me cry my eyes out every. single. time. In fact, I watched the last episode of the first season three times and cried each time! I have never done that before!
So what is this show about and why am I so obsessed?
Here’s a little synopsis:
“The series follows siblings Kate, Kevin and Randall as their lives intertwine. Kate and Kevin were originally part of a triplet pregnancy, conceived in the bathroom of Froggy’s, a bar, during Super Bowl XIV. Their due date was October 12, 1980, but they were born six weeks early on August 31; their biological brother was stillborn. Their parents, Jack and Rebecca, having expected to bring home three babies, decide to adopt another newborn: Randall, a black child born the same day and brought to the same hospital after his biological father abandoned him at a fire station.
Episodes weave through the stories of the past and present of the characters, with most scenes taking place in 1980, 1989–1995, and the present day (2016–2017).”
What this synopsis doesn’t tell you is the characters are relatable and flawed and just so perfectly imperfect. They’re human ( it doesn’t feel fake at all) and their interactions will break you open. You will need a box of tissues beside you because you will most-likely start bawling uncontrollably during an episode or two.. or three.. or four. You will feel all the feels. You will feel empathy. And like me, you may fall in love with a character or two. And then… you may start googling them because you can’t stop thinking about them!
This Is Us is one of those shows I feel like I could have written! Ok, maybe not that well. BUT… I really love how the show goes back and forth from the past to the present showing us glimpses and memories of how their upbringing has defined and shaped who they became and are becoming as adults, the struggles they face, the connections they have, and the ones they`re making.
I love how the flashbacks to the past and present are so seamless! The show is really well done.
The show covers topics such as parenting, adoption, fostering, body image, insecurities, addiction, relationships, death, grief, connection, and above all; love!
It’s a Styling the Inside feel-good show!
