Product Description

The most entertaining family on television is back. From Executive Producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Jason Katims, comes the second season of the critically acclaimed hit series Parenthood. The entire all-star ensemble cast returns, including Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls), Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) and Craig T Nelson (Coach), for 22 episodes that take you even deeper into the lives of all three generations of the colorful Braverman clan. Refreshingly original and genuinely funny, Parenthood turns the trials, tribulations and triumphs of family life into smart, heartwarming experiences you can treasure again and again.

NBC's Parenthood encompasses such a sprawling cast that the action can get a little hectic at times, but the show always delivers in the more dramatic moments. In the second season, the Bravermans are all jockeying for position. Patriarch Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) has come to an understanding with his wife, Camille (Bonnie Bedelia), but still tries to control situations with his kids when cooperation would make things easier. His oldest son, Adam (Peter Krause), on the other hand, gives up some of his turf when he offers his sister, Sarah (Lauren Graham), a job at his shoe-manufacturing firm, where she enters into a relationship with his boss, Gordon (guest star William Baldwin). Adam's 16-year-old daughter, Haddie (Sarah Ramos), meanwhile, struggles to assert her independence, but her father and mother, Kristina (Monica Potter), make it difficult when it comes to a school election and a potential love interest (Michael B. Jordan, from creator Jason Katims's Friday Night Lights). Her younger brother, Max (Max Burkholder), who has Asperger's syndrome, also contributes to their rapidly escalating stress levels. As for the other siblings: Julia (Erika Christensen) considers having a second child with Joel (Sam Jaeger, who really shines this season), while Crosby (Dax Shepard) decides to make things official with Jasmine (Joy Bryant), but an unexpected development brings out the judgmental side of the clan. It might not seem fair to single out one cast member, but Graham continues to do some of the best work, largely because her character, a single mother, has the most to lose. Other second-season guests include Minka Kelly as Max's tutor and John Corbett as Sarah's unreliable ex-husband, who returns to reconnect with their kids (Miles Heizer and Mae Whitman). Extra features include deleted scenes and four commentary tracks. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

    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!!!!

    I bought seasons 6,5,4,3 and finally have purchased the second season from Amazon. I bought all these seasons because I am a devoted Parenthood fan and am deeply sad for the show finale of its farewell season on Thursday. The reason why I have all these seasons and intend to buy the last one, season one, is because of the portrayal of family in such a simplistic everyday life. The show does a great job of showing daily life which and the little moments which make family and relationships worth it. Even though the show is a drama, its one of the few shows on television which depicts family realistic but in a way which wrenches your emotions when a character struggles to overcome an obstacle facing them. Even though I began watching the season well into its third season, I enjoy the acting of Lauren Graham whose from my favorite show, Gilmore Girls. This is such a well written and acted show that I still can't believe that such a fantastic show as this is in it's farewell season. I gave Parenthood five stars because I love the show because of the human emotion that the actors convey that bring the audience to tears at least once in every episode and the brilliant writing. This show captures the peaks and falls of the multiple relationships within three generations of one family; it's pure raw emotion that captivates thousands of fans. If you enjoyed this show you should watch a few episodes of Gilmore Girls on netflix. If you are a fan of this show and watched episodes while it was playing on NBC, definitely go for it and buy the seasons, as many as you feel adequate.
