Doubt and mistakes rule the “”If this Boat Is a Rockin’” episode of PARENTHOOD. Crosby has second thoughts about selling his boat, Sarah accidentally stays out all night with Gordon, and Adam’s anger is eating him alive.
Adam: Adam has been holding so much together for so long that I’m actually relieved to see him starting to fray. He needs to let some of that coiled tension out before it eats him alive. Now, hitting a guy in the supermarket is not an acceptable outlet, no matter how much of an asshole (that’s acceptable on network TV now? Did I miss a memo?) the guy is, but it‘s good to hear him admit it felt good. The scene between Zeek and Adam on the boat is one of the most powerful I can remember on Parenthood. Zeek listens and is as open and forthright as he can be, while Adam finally admits that he is boiling with rage inside because as much as he tries to be in control, he can’t be–not with his life full of Asperger’s and Gordon. Peter Krause plays this one well, his voice rising steadily and I like that we get little glimpses into what life was like with Zeek as a dad. We even get a sweet little scene with Zeek and Camille sitting and talking out of this, so this storyline could have some far-reaching consequences.
