Parenthood Cry-Cap: Swift Kicks in the Rear

  Every once in a while, what a person needs most is a good, swift, unapologetic kick in the butt. That’s what several members of the extended Braverman family got in this week’s episode of Parenthood , an hour grounded in what this show does best: depicting the relatable mini-dramas that arise on ordinary days, among moms, dads, kids, siblings, and friends trying their best to look out for each other.   Sometimes those mini-dramas involve a daughter who refuses to sleep at her dad’s apartment, and also asks her mother whether she’s “done her research” before coming to speak during Green Week. (I know Sydney is going through a rough time, but oh my God, she was being such a massive brat in this episode.) Sometimes they center on a grown man who complains about real estate agents using words like declutter , and also sticks his ear next to heating vents so he can eavesdrop on his parents’ arguments over whether to sell the house he’s loved since childhood. And sometimes, they’re about a man and his wife, waiting anxiously to find out if she remains healthy and cancer-free. (In case you didn’t guess, the scene in which Adam and Kristina got their answer to the cancer question was the big cry moment in this week’s episode.)  Read More... //www.vulture.com/2014/03/parenthood-recap-season-5-episode-16.html

'Parenthood' Recap: Old Patterns Die Hard

Boundaries get set and then immediately crossed in the course of one emotional and semi-infuriating episode of Parenthood . Kristina has her one-year check up following her cancer diagnosis, Sarah finds herself choosing between dating and her career, and Crosby gets in the middle of his parent's business. There is a lot of yelling and crying during "The Enchanting Mr. Knight," mostly by me, the viewer.   Read More... //www.buddytv.com/articles/parenthood/parenthood-recap-old-patterns-52826.aspx

Parenthood Season 5 “The Enchanting Mr. Knight” Review

Time for a weekly check-in with the Braverman family on NBC’s  Parenthood . *Sigh* Sarah I don’t care what career or hobby Sarah is currently pursuing. Generally, I don’t care who she’s dating. The only thing I want for Sarah is for her to live her life for herself. She’s weathered hopefully the worst of the storms with her kids and I’d really like to see her live whatever life that brings her happiness. Instead, what we’ve gotten is a character who never seems to be certain about what she wants and is always vulnerable to the whims and suggestions of others. Enter Hank. Carl invited Sarah on a dream vacation to Zimbabwe for a week. A rare opportunity, Sarah could have expanded her portfolio and enjoyed some great company. Of course, the trip would have required her to push back the project she’s partnered on with Hank. Unsurprisingly, Hank does not receive this news well, but begrudgingly accepts it until he finds out that Sarah is delaying the project to go on a trip with Carl.

Parenthood Review: All Clear

Promos are getting out of hand. As gut-wrenching as it was to watch the story of Kristina's cancer unfold, it was a cheap marketing stunt to use it to try to gain viewers by suggesting a recurrence. Instead, Kristina was given the all clear  Parenthood Season 5 Episode 16  and she was officially a one year cancer survivor. As happy as I was for the character, I couldn't help that nagging feeling in the back of my mind that NBC took a cheap shot at an otherwise beautifully written story.  Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2014/03/parenthood-review-all-clear/
