Good news! Television drama series, This Thing Called Marriage season 1 is now available for free streaming. The producer(s) of the show recently uploaded every episode from the first season of the show on their YouTube page. Prior to making the complete season available, only the show’s pilot was made available to the audience. It’s hard to say this decision won’t be reversed, so, I’ll advise you avail yourself the opportunity while it lasts.
This Thing Called Marriage is a Nigerian Television drama series that debuted in the year 2015. The series was created, produced and directed by Nigerian producer, actress, and writer, Blessing Effiom-Egbe for B’Concept Network Productions. The series, as the title already gives away, focuses on the union of marriage, its intricacies and complexities. According to the producers of the show, “This Thing Called Marriage is a drama series based on REAL LIFE marital situations faced by couples. Each Season will throw light on common issues faced by two married couples and other extensions.”
This Thing Called Marriage season 1 focuses on two marriages, each battling their own peculiar issues. One shows us a husband growing increasingly dissatisfied with his wife’s busy schedule and resultant lack of time for him. The other shows a husband having troubles with the sudden ‘embarrassing’ behaviors his wife starts exhibiting in pregnancy. But, on a lighter note, men too get wahala sha! The second season of This Thing Called Marriage focuses on two couples battling the issue of childlessness in their marriages.
Blessing Effiom-Egbe, judging from and previous and recent works, appears to have a particular interest in marital issues. The project through which I came to know her, her feature film, Two Brides And A Baby, was maritally inclined. Same as her popular television drama series, Lekki Wives, which dramatizes the not so pleasant experiences of “Lekki Wives.” Her latest offering, The Women, likewise, borders on the topics of relationships and marriages.
This Thing Called Marriage season 1 stars Ufoma McDermott, Femi Jacobs, Alex Adapoyi, Tana Adelana, Kiki Omeili, Enitan Akanni, Darlene Benson Cobham, Linda Ene, Uduak Akrah, Keira Heywatch and many others in its first season.
