The Bravermans return this September for another season of angst, tears and scenes where every character talks at once. The cast and creator of the show offered some tantalizing hints about the fifth season of “Parenthood” including marital strife for Joel and Julia, romance for Amber and a time jump.
If you’re looking for a good cry, binge watch “Parenthood.” The family drama is filled with well-written tearjerker storylines about Aspergers Syndrome, cancer and adoption.

Your neighbor does it. Your boss does it. Your mom does it, even though it’s hard to believe she’s even heard of it. You do it all the time, and you refuse to be ashamed of your habit. We’re talking, of course, about binge watching. Waiting a whole week for a new episode of a […]
“Parenthood” has been a “bubble” show since it debuted, never assured of being renewed for another season at the time its finale aired.
