What a year to remember. The 2013-2014 film season will undoubtedly go down as a highlight for black TV and film. Lupita Nyong’o won her Oscar as did Steve McQueen, as a producer for “12 Years a Slave,” and John Ridley for penning that movie’s screenplay.
“Parenthood” should probably be sponsored by Kleenex. The drama is the rare show that makes you want to have a good cry then hug your family.
“Parenthood” has been a “bubble” show since it debuted, never assured of being renewed for another season at the time its finale aired. Though the show looks like a lock to be picked up, thanks to strong ratings for recent episodes, the writers probably had no idea whether we’d ever get to see the Bravermans […]
Remember how amazing last week’s episode of “Parenthood” was? Are you wondering how Drew is doing after helping his girlfriend through her abortion and then getting dumped? Well, you’ll have to keep wondering because Drew is not even in this week’s episode and there are no references to the storyline whatsoever. Instead, “One Step Forward, […]
This week’s brilliant, heartbreaking, daring episode of “Parenthood” begins with a warning from NBC that it contains “mature subject matter.” That could refer to its treatment of abortion, or it could be a reference to language used in this week’s comedic subplot.

“Parenthood” rang in the new year with a brand new episode Tuesday night. It was a doozy. In fact, it may have broken the “Parenthood” speed record for moments from the start of show to the first tearjerker moment. Plus, Sydney proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is the spawn of Satan. […]
The fall finale of “Parenthood,” “What to my Wondering Eyes,” was a sentimental tearjerker of a present thanks to Kristina’s illness, a sad but necessary break up, a potential future baby Braverman and a visit from Santa. Also, someone wears an elf costume and has sex, possibly at the same time. DVR the Next Episode […]
One of the funniest scenes in “Parenthood” history was in Season 2 when Adam (Peter Krause) accidentally ate a marijuana-laced lollipop. This week, it’s his wife’s turn to smoke pot, though she has good reason.
Kristina tells the rest of the Bravermans that she has breast cancer in this week’s episode of “Parenthood.” Their reactions very from “altruism” to “freaking the hell out” to the ever popular “montage.” “South Park” was right: they really do work for every occasion. DVR the Next Episode of “Parenthood” Amber (Mae Whitman), learned that […]
All of the Braverman men find themselves dealing with the sort of sensitive issues that used to make for Very Special Episodes on this week’s “Parenthood.” Surprisingly, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) turns out to be the one who is not a self-absorbed, clueless, entitled, jerk. Adam (Peter Krause) and, especially Crosby (Dax Shepard), I am […]
