    It’s a good show but not in the same league as the heavy hitting cable shows. Not even close. It has a good premise and some great performances and kind of fills the Parenthood void for some people. I think if they streamlined the show a little more and reduced Kate and Kevin’s storylines, it would improve the show. I could see why this show would turn some people off though. It’s emotionally manipulative and a little too sentimental. I’m a cynical person by nature so I am wired to not like this show, but I do for some reason. Doubt it will be anywhere near my top 15 shows come the end of the year though.

    Anyways, we have to beat the drum loudly for this show at the Emmys! Tell us all you can about its campaign!

    You can trust that the drums will beat very, very loudly for “This Is Us” here at the Derby. We/I’ll be doing GD hangouts, more spotlights, and Marcus and I will be doing the carpet at the upcoming PaleyFest.

    And of course I’ll keep you all informed of all the campaign info (in the separate thread I created) I not only get as a voter, but any insider stuff run by me like Moore being Lead. It’s only fair if I know that you all do as well – unless I’m sworn to secrecy or it’s a GD exclusive that can be turned into a blog post, then screw you guys.

    It’s a decent show, but not the greatest in the slightest.

    It’s stellar to me. Your mileage may very, which is irrelevant to my enjoyment or appreciation of the work in question.

    Stellar gets banded about way too much in describing good shows. I loved Westworld but wouldn’t describe it as stellar. TV in general is at all time high levels of quality. Either about 30 shows are stellar, or we have to be more conservative in labelling everything as amazing.

    Like I said previously, your mileage may vary. I’ll call the show stellar if I damn well please if that’s what I deem to be the case, which it is for “This Is Us.”

    But this is a thread exactly on that topic, yet you haven’t clarified what constitutes it being a stellar show, just that ‘it’s a stellar show’. What mileage are you using?

    The characters are interesting and well fleshed out in a very limited period of time.

    TBH, critics do not have sway in the TV awards like they do with film. I wouldn’t call them out of touch, but they always seem to want to push their favorites forward and jeopardize other shows credibility because they want to have just as much relevance in the Emmys race.
