Betches Love This Display: 'This Is Us'
This show will give you all of the damn feels–from sobbing uncontrollably to giggling, and then back to sobbing uncontrollably( but happy tears this time ).

is great in the fact that not all of its characters conform to the conventional standards of beauty.

It addresses the uncomfortable stuff( like, am I a super shitty mother? Am I a sociopath girlfriend ?) but manages to do it without attaining the spectators feel uncomfortable. Fucking genius.
Added bonus is that Milo Ventimiglia( aka Jess Mariano) appears shirtless fairly regularly. And Mandy Moore singing is a flashback to the — back before we detested Anne Hathaway, of course.

And everything is just so good that if I had any emotions( which betches plainly don’t) I would tear up just thinking about it.
