I will give you that this is not a show where exciting things happen several times an episode. Rather, this is a show that does its best to imitate real life with its ups and downs, and consequently most of the storylines evolve gradually over the course of a season. However, that is what I love about this show. Much like "Six Feet Under" or "The Wire", where you need to watch several episodes to know whether or not you will like it, "Parenthood" takes a little bit of time. The viewers get to know the characters as three dimensional, flawed and lovable people much like their real life family members. Shows like "House" or "True Blood" are exciting at first, but quickly become routine as the viewer grows bored with the constant tricks and emotional thrills. As someone who watches a lot of different types of TV shows, I can say that for me, "Parenthood" is one of the best: a show that cares deeply about the integrity of its characters and does not sell its audience short by relying on cheap thrills and rollercoaster plot development.

As the second season of Parenthood comes to a close, it is clear that this show is simply THE best hour on network television. This is the most genuine, layered, heartfelt portrayal of family life and parenthood in primetime. Every week, the plotlines, writing, and character development are thoughtful and relevant... there is no need for melodramatic, soapy stories when the production and acting are top-notch. The way that the multiple storylines weave into one another is artful and carefully considered. There is a perfect balance between authentic heart and witty humor, thanks to the producers' insistence on improvisation between the actors. Bravo to the creators & production team!

Further, I am floored by this beautiful and talented cast of actors... from the stunning Lauren Graham, who has me in tears every week with her portrayal of flawed but brilliant Sarah Braverman, to the fantastic Peter Krause, whose rendering of Adam Braverman's role as a father is remarkable, down-to-earth, and not at all over-the-top (he so reminds me of my dad). Bonnie Bedelia and Craig T. Nelson handle their roles with such thoughtful skill and grace. Among other standouts are the marvelous Monica Potter and a remarkably talented group of young actors, including Mae Whitman, Sarah Ramos, and Max Burkholder.

The storylines in season two continue to prove that there is much creative energy left in this show... there is so much potential for further plot and character development. It is without question that the entire team behind Parenthood deserves serious recognition (where are the Emmy's?) and of course, a third season. Get watching-- you will be blown away.

Another reviewer said "I can say that for me, "Parenthood" is one of the best: a show that cares deeply about the integrity of its characters and does not sell its audience short by relying on cheap thrills and rollercoaster plot development."

I completely agree that this is not some cheap raunchy sitcom that throws some scandalous characters together for some "drama" and so-called "laughs". If you want that check out Modern Family or Desperate Housewives. The quality of the acting and insight to each character is fantastic. With each episode you feel more and more like you know the Bravermans, and it leaves you wanting more. My husband even loves the show because we can relate to it. It is an honest, well acted, well directed, well rounded cast that NEVER fails to entertain us. So if you can appreciate quality in acting and are not one that craves the scandalous junky drama, etc.. then you'd appreciate this show about a modern family that is colorful and imperfect, and so heartfelt. I give it 5 stars!!!!

PARENTHOOD is bringing back to television something that has been lacking for a while and that is a drama about regular middle class families and the trials and tribulations they deal with. There have been other family dramas over the years but often those were families with money where it was not a realistic display of day to day life. The ensemble cast here is also superb with Lauren Graham and Peter Krause shining in particular. The show will make you laugh and make you cry but most importantly you will be able to relate. Season one wrapped everything up with the final episode and here with season two the show truly hits its stride on all levels. The show also looks and sounds excellent here on dvd. The only weird thing is that the title song has been changed. Obviously they didn't have the licensing which is bizarre. But if you want to watch superb acting, excellent writing and story lines that represent every day life there is nothing better than PARENTHOOD. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed the first season and breezed through it pretty quickly, but at some point halfway through season two, I forget during what episode, I suddenly had the realization that this show was really annoying. I watched a couple more episodes just to make sure my feelings hadn't changed, and sure enough, I can't watch any more of this. I came to the Amazon review section for this season to see if anyone had the same experience as me. Turns out I'm not the only one; there are others here who voiced the same complaint. That's why I'm giving this season two stars--many of the other two-star reviews had the same grievance as me in that they liked the first season but were turned off by the second one.

When I thought about what it was that began to irritate me, I pinpointed the fact that the show had devolved into a vicious cycle of arguments and tears. That's all it is now. The first season had a lot more subtlety. This show has a giant ensemble cast and the first season had the advantage of being able to take the time to introduce us to all of them. There wasn't a need for non-stop screeching drama. There were a lot more quieter moments that not only progressed the narrative, but also little by little revealed different facets about all the characters. That's what I loved about season one: I slowly got to know all the characters in the show and how they interact with each other.

Season two lost that luxury. We are already familiar with the characters. And the narrative about their lives continues to move along but it's done in the most irritating fashion. Every episode is now the same. There are loud arguments and bitter tears, and someone is always either saying 'we need to talk' or 'I don't want to talk right now.' Like I said, I loved getting to know the characters, but once the writing became predictable and irritating, I now hate just about every character on the show because of all the annoying things that come out of their mouths.
