Editorial Reviews

In many respects, the third season of NBC's Parenthood revolves around new starts. In the wake of his layoff, Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter) have their third child, while he looks for work. Meanwhile, Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Jasmine (Joy Bryant) pursue new relationships, Amber (Mae Whitman) gets a job with a political candidate (Jonathan Tucker), and Julia (Erika Christensen) and Joel (Sam Jaeger) try to find a way to add to their family after the disappointments of the previous year. These developments present opportunities as Adam and Crosby open up a recording studio and Julia and Joel arrange an adoption with Zoe (Rosa Salazar, very good), a young woman without the financial means to provide for a child, but the unintended consequences include sibling rivalry and a series of inappropriate employer-employee situations. Adam and Kristina also decide to mainstream Max (Max Burkholder), who has Asperger's syndrome, by sending him to public school, which presents a whole new set of challenges. Unlike the other Bravermans, Sarah (Lauren Graham) revisits her past when she reunites with her ex-boyfriend, Mark (Jason Ritter, who took time off for The Event). If Bonnie Bedelia, the matriarch of the clan, continues to get short shrift, her grandson, Drew (Miles Heizer), becomes a more fully realized character as he prepares for college and falls in love for the first time. Despite a few tough moments and a few tears--Craig T. Nelson's Zeek has a particularly touching moment with his estranged mother--the year ends on an optimistic note with a wedding and another new addition. If the musical selections tend to err on the sappy side, the writing and acting continue to elevate Parenthood above most other domestic dramas. The extra feature offers deleted scenes and two commentary tracks with creator Jason Katims. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Parenthood returns for its third season with 18 funny, surprising and always true-to-life episodes.  Big changes and big decisions await the colorful Braverman family, from welcoming a new family member and celebrating a new business venture to dealing with family illness and preparing for the future.   Starring a stellar ensemble cast and featuring guest stars including Jason Ritter (The Event), John Corbett (Sex and the City) and music sensation Cee Lo Green, Parenthood may be the toughest job you’ll ever love, but it’s a whole lot more fun with this family around...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful season . . . May 26, 2012
This show is a gem. In season 3, the acting and writing continue to impress me in every episode. I really loved the relationship between Sarah and Mark and thought the return of Seth was handled perfectly. Adam and Kristina's new addition to the family made for some warm and charming moments. I'm a big fan of Jabbar, and was happy to see some great things happen for his family at the end of the season. Julia and Joel's desire to have another child was a poignant (and sometimes heart-breaking) journey. The Bravermans are perfectly flawed, and the amount of heart the possess make this show a must-see. I have been a fan from day one! Mostly because I think Lauren Graham and Peter Krause are two of the most talented actors out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME August 6, 2012
This the greatest show on modern TV. Everyone can relate to something that is going on in each and every episode. Amazing writers and equally great cast members. I hope this show has many more seasons to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant, bittersweet, and real January 7, 2012
I only started watching Parenthood because Lauren Graham, one of my favorite TV actors (from her days on Gilmore Girls) was in it. The show's storyline which is based on the Braverman family, explores the dynamics of being part of a large extended family, single parenting, teen angst, and marital difficulties. Also, this is one of the few shows on television that explores what it is like to have a special needs child. The storyline each week is interesting, keeps viewers engaged, and the acting by the ensemble cast has grown from strength to strength.

Craig T. Nelson plays Zeke, the patriarch of the Braverman clan, who is married to sweet and gentle Camille (Bonnie Bedelia). The couple have four adult children - Adam (Peter Krause, one of my favorite actors in this show), Sarah (Lauren Graham), Erika Christensen (Julia), and Crosby (Dax Shepard). Adam is a senior executive at a shoe manufacturing company and is married to housewife Kristina (Monica Potter) and they have a teenage daughter and a young son. Sarah is the 'problem child' who married young, moved away, and then gets divorced and moves back into her parents' home with her two teenage children, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew. Sarah has her own set of problems - can't seem to find a job that really brings out her potential, isn't sure what exactly she's meant to do, and her teenage daughter Amber is quite a handful in this first season. Then there's high achiever Julia, who is a hot-shot attorney, married to a building contractor turned stay-at-home dad, Joel Graham (Sam Yaeger), and they have a precocious young daughter. Finally, the youngest in the family is carefree, wild child Crosby who matures through the series, from an irresponsible, anything goes guy to a caring, responsible father and hardworking entrepreneur.

I love the characters in Parenthood. I heard that it was not going to come back and I think the way they ended it was good in that case. This was a great ensemble casting and I'm sorry to see it go!! We definitely need more family-oriented shows like this.

The music is awesome. The kids are always right, or at least have sane motives, while parents bumble around like idiots until you want to yell at them. I hope the screenwriters get paid double. It must be a lot of work to have four people talking at once through the whole show. But like in a soap opera, you start caring about the characters and then you're hooked. My wife and I will probably be watching it (and yelling at it) for a long time to come.
