A Shared Connection

I am not really a television watcher, not at all really.  However, recently I purchased Hulu for a month to watch a documentary series.  After finishing the series, I began to watch a show I had heard many of my friends talking about– This is Us.  If I’m being honest, I usually think sitcoms are […]
