Chances are, if you have had any form of social interaction within the last three or four months, you’ve heard of NBC’s new hit show “This Is Us.” Just in case you’ve been living under a rock and have missed out on this, let me fill you in. (Warning: spoilers ahead.) The first episode left some people confused as it followed what seemed to be two separate story lines — Jack (Milo Ventimiglia of “Gilmore Girls”) and Rebecca Pearson (Mandy Moore of “A Walk to Remember”) during the delivery of their triplets, and that of three random 30-somethings, Kate,...
