Jack and his wife – who is very pregnant with triplets – have just moved into their new home in Pittsburgh. Successful and handsome television actor Kevin is growing increasingly bored with his bachelor lifestyle. Randall – who was abandoned at a fire station by his father as an infant – is a stylish New York-based businessman working to raise two daughters with his wife, Beth. These people are among a group, several of whom share a birthday, of seemingly random individuals whose lives intertwine in unexpected ways.


  • Absolutely ENDEARING and binge-worthy show (+1)
  • Great characters & dialogues (+1)
  • I teared up (but mostly, that’s allergies) (+1/2)
  • Wonderful, family-friendly stories (+1/2)

On a friend’s recommendations, I checked out the first episode of this show. I half-expected it to be sappy and trite, but it turns out the characters and their stories are absolutely endearing. The story is told through a series of “now” and flashback moments that could easily be confusing as hell, were it not for clever storytelling, editing, and direction. Binge-watched 2 seasons in a week. Absolutely delightful if you are okay with sappy family-value TV shows.

Score: 8/10
