“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.
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. It also features more scenes of characters talking over each other than the rest of the XFINITY Watchathon Week shows combined. The people who bring the Bravermans to life are […]
“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, […]

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 […]
Everyone is on drugs in this week’s episode of “Parenthood,” ‘Trouble in Candyland.” Sarah (Lauren Graham) is such a frustrating character because she never learns from her mistakes. She’s incredibly realistic, but this week, she is hard to watch. There were several points when I wanted to grab her and shake her. DVR the Next […]
The Bravermans are a lovable fictional family, but, at times they are selfish and entitled. In this week’s episode of “Parenthood,” the biological Bravermen women, with the notable exception of Amber who continues to be more mature than most of the older characters on the show, spend the week mistreating the too perfect to be […]
