It has been nine months since viewers last saw the Bravermans. When the new season of “Parenthood” premieres on September 11, almost as much time will have passed in their lives. “There’s a five month time gap because we try to stay pretty close to where we are in the calendar year,” showrunner Jason Katims […]

There are more happily ever afters on this fairytale conclusion than on an entire season of “Once Upon a Time.” Why not? The show has yet to be renewed — though it is one of NBC’s highest rated dramas so its future seems secure […]
Dating your boss is always a bad idea. Dating your politician boss is an even worse idea. So of course Amber, after being appropriately freaked out by kissing city councilman Bob Little (Jonathan Tucker) in the previous episode of “Parenthood,” decides this week that she wants to put on a sexy dress.
Hey, guys, would you like to wreck your happy marriage in six easy steps? Adam Braverman (Peter Krause) is here to show you how in this week’s episode of “Parenthood“, “Mr. Honesty.” Step one: let your sexy new secretary kiss you. Step two: do not tell your wife. If you still are not clear how […]
This week’s “Parenthood” features one Braverman striving to do the right thing in a complex, emotionally delicate situation, and the rest of the Bravermans achieving new personal bests in the field of self-absorption. This episode should have been called “First World Problems,” but it’s actual title is “Forced Family Fun.” Sarah (Lauren Graham), the only […]
What’s the one thing you never expected to see on “Parenthood“? A dinner scene where none of the Bravermans talk over each other? Don’t get crazy. That is not going to happen. However, something nearly as unlikely transpired in the October 18th episode, “Tales From the Luncheonette”: celebrity stunt casting. “The Voice’s” Cee Lo Green […]
“Parenthood” fans, Tuesday night’s episode was a shocker. Things actually happened! That’s things, plural. It’s like the producers want people to tune in next week because they find the plots compelling instead of just out of affection for the characters. The promos gave away that Kristina (Monica Potter) was going to have her baby in […]
NBC hyped this episode of “Parenthood” as being a high-stakes, tense battle for Alex’s (Michael B. Jordan) future. If you expected him to be dragged off to jail in handcuffs while Haddie’s bad perm sobbed, well, it’s pretty much the exact opposite of that. Sarah (Lauren Graham) spends the whole episode making excuses to drop […]
The second episode of this season of “Parenthood” was all about the Bravermans being presumptuous, rude, and ignoring social cues. Max has Aspergers, but what is everyone else’s excuse? The episode opens with Kristina (Monica Potter) staring at Max (Max Burkholder) while he sleeps. That’s taking helicopter parenting too far, Kristina. It’s Max’s first day […]
