‘This Is Us’ is an NBC drama series which originally aired in 2016 and created by Dan Fogelman. The series stars some big name celebrities including Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, Milo Ventimiglia, etc. The series is about the lives of several families who are connected by nothing more than sharing the same birthday. It showcases that despite them having the same birthday their lives are so different yet similar in some cases. The series starts by following the twins Kevin and Kate and their adopted brother Randall. Kate and Kevin were the two that survived birth in a triplet pregnancy. Interestingly, they were conceived in the bathroom of a bar as Super Bowl XIV was being watched in that same bar. The parents who are hell bent on bringing home three babies decide to adopt a third named Randall who was also born on the same day at the same hospital, but his father abandoned him.
