I’ve never watched This Is Us, and based on the way its cast and creative team (Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, and creator Dan Fogelman specifically) spend week after week telling its legion of masochistic fans that being a viewer may, in fact, lead to their untimely deaths, I don’t see why anyone has.

Why watch a television show that’s actively trying to harm you?
