“One Little Island Girl” | This is Us
It has been a week, darling readers, and considering today is Monday, I’m trying really hard not to talk about last night’s Oscars because we’re saving that for next week. (Thankfully, Katie’s got us covered with the one moment that we all can’t stop buzzing about, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s performance of their Academy Award winning song, “Shallow.”) Madam Secretary kicked off the week with a great return, Black-ish was delightful as per usual, The Magicians crushed our souls in an indescribably fantastic way. (It was so hard to choose between this episode and the one I went with. So hard. I can’t even explain.) Brooklyn Nine-Nine reminded us of what a fantastic team the 99th precinct is, and I’ve finally started Netflix’s One Day at a Time. Please don’t sleep on this show, darling readers — believe the hype, it deserves a renewal, and frankly, I’m so tired of fighting for the shows that we all ask for yet somehow neglect. The representation on this show is astounding, I’m not even caught up and I already know I’ll have multiple episodes I’d want to talk about in Year-End reviews. But for This Week’s Most Exquisite TV Moment, Beth’s journey on This is Us hit me the hardest.
