This Is Us

This Is Us is the runaway NBC hit about a family of fairly messed-up people and how the complexity of their lives are woven together into one tapestry of imperfect love. There is an intricate plot of time hops from what made them to what they became and plenty of drama and dysfunction to go around. […]

The Chicken Or The Egg

The powerful and terrifying weapons built […]
