Movies and TV shows that follow different people at the same time (usually) do well, and it鈥檚 not hard to figure out why; it鈥檚 really interesting to see how the lives of the characters intertwine. This Is Us follows two triplets and their family, all of whom have very unique personalities. The show definitely pulls on your heartstrings, and those of us who miss Parenthood have a pretty good substitute. The show is still on air though, which means you have to wait in between episodes (boo!). Here鈥檚 what you can watch while you wait.

IF YOU LIKE DRAMEDY, WATCH YOUNG AND HUNGRY

young-hungry

Gabi, Josh, Sofia, Yolanda and Elliot have their own kind of family. Gabi is a struggling gourmet chef who can鈥檛 seem to catch a break, until she meets Josh, a billionaire inventor who doesn鈥檛 have the time to cook. Elliot doesn鈥檛 like Gabi, Elliot and Yolanda don鈥檛 like each other, and Gabi and Josh like each other TOO much. You don鈥檛 have to worry about getting too attached to this show just to have it taken away; season five is starting on March 17, so you鈥檒l have plenty to watch. Watch it on Netflix.

IF YOU LIKE ULTRA-CONNECTED CHARACTERS, WATCH SENSE8

sense8-1

We guarantee you鈥檝e never seen characters connected like this. Sense8 follows eight characters from all over the world. Things get crazy when they suddenly become 鈥渟ensates鈥 鈥 people who are mentally and emotionally linked. The show has received positive reactions, not least for its portrayal of its gay and transgender characters (the woman who plays the transgender character is trans in real life, and one of the show鈥檚 directors is transgender as well). Even though the characters are all from drastically different lifestyles, the way they connect is all at once heartwarming, heartbreaking, surreal and believable. Watch it on Netflix.

IF YOU LIKE FAMILY DRAMEDY, WATCH SPEECHLESS

speechless

The DiMeo family is one to watch out for. Mama Maya is a force to be reckoned with, as is her no-nonsense daughter Dylan. Ray is the brains of the operation. You might cut yourself with the wit of JJ, a high schooler with cerebral palsy and a clever sense of humor. Jimmy? Jimmy doesn鈥檛 care what you or anyone else thinks, which is a pretty good attitude to have, although the neighbors don鈥檛 agree. You鈥檒l laugh and choke up, especially at JJ鈥檚 connection with the school鈥檚 groundskeeper. If you can鈥檛 get enough of families, this one鈥檚 the one to watch. Watch it on Hulu. (Photo via ABC)

IF YOU LIKE UNCONVENTIONAL FAMILIES (AND SOAP OPERA-LEVEL聽DRAMEDY), WATCH聽JANE THE VIRGIN

jane-the-virgin

Jane Gloriana Villanueva is not here to listen to your crappy opinions. She鈥檚 a strong Latina woman who has a loving family, a plan鈥 and an accidental baby. But she鈥檚 still a virgin! If you think this sounds telanovela-y, you鈥檙e right 鈥 it is. They even appropriately have a telanovela-esque omniscient narrator. You鈥檒l laugh at Jane鈥檚 well-intentioned mishaps and her rivalries with the insufferable Petra and Scott (not to mention her own mom鈥檚 love interests), and you鈥檒l cry along with her every time she鈥檚 heartbroken. And with the latest plot twist 鈥 well, let鈥檚 just say you need to watch this one ASAP. Watch it on Netflix. (Photo via The CW)
