With the success of reality series such as Teen Mom and High School Moms , TV is no stranger to teen pregnancy. However, it's still widely the exception rather than the rule that a scripted character — on a network show no less — will have an abortion. But after riding a wave of critical and commercial success thanks to its honest-to-life depictions of breast cancer and post-traumatic stress disorder, among others, Parenthood tackled the issue head-on in last week's episode. One minute, Drew ( Miles Heizer ) was worrying about college acceptance letters and the next, he was watching his girlfriend walk through the door at Planned Parenthood to take care of the unwelcome surprise. "We attempted to tell the story in a way that was balanced and would be fair to people watching the show who might have different points of view," showrunner Jason Katims tells TVGuide.com. "We've really been able to tackle difficult subjects in a way that is very honest and that's what we really were trying to do."

NBC wasted no time jumping into the final four episodes of Season 4 of " Parenthood ." The New Year kicked off with a new look for Kristina, who made a bold decision in her battle with cancer. After realizing that the chemotherapy was starting to take her hair, Kristina decided to take matters into her own hand and she shaved her head. "It’s one thing [for you] to know that you have something, but it’s another to walk around and have everybody in the world know," showrunner Jason Katims told TVLine. After reacting poorly -- and from shock -- upon seeing his wife without hair, Adam tries to make amends by buying her a new wig. The red locks attract the attention of a younger man, which helps Kristina feel better about the situation. There are no easy answers in this situation, and in true "Parenthood" fashion, the show simply shows the complexities of what the characters are going through, and keeps it as real as possible. Season 4 of "Parenthood" moves toward its conclusion in three weeks, Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on NBC. TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser. http://feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/zF7ub7_2sKw/parenthood-kristina-drastic-change-video_n_2394232.html
