Parenthood Season 5 “Jump Ball” Review

The tears, the angst and the occasional moments of levity continued on last night’s episode ofParenthood.

I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but Ray Romano is so great on this show – when his character Hank is not paired up with Sarah. This is no fault of the actors, I’m just not sure what Sarah’s purpose is this season and rehashing any feelings between she and Hank never feels like a good use of time.

Although it was heartbreaking to see Hank not get a definitive answer as to whether or not he has Asperger’s Syndrome, I loved the moments that led up to his conversation with Max’s doctor. I also loved the exchange between Adam and Kristina as they pondered whether or not Hank and Max shared more than a passion for photography. I can appreciate them looking at Hank as a sign of hope for Max as he gets older, particularly after Max lost his only (young) friend last week.
