Parenthood

6 Seasons

Season 3
4.8 out of 5 stars (894) IMDb 8.1/10

Last season, Adam and Kristina got a (mostly) happy surprise when Kristina became pregnant. They already have a full plate dealing with a teenage daughter and a son with Asperger's Syndrome. So, a new baby -- whew! Julia and Joel, unable to have another child of their own, have decided to adopt. They can't help but be a bit jealous about Adam and Kristina's news. Sarah is fast approaching 40 and doing it all on her own -- working, dating and raising two kids. If only she could move out of her parents' home -- life would be grand, wouldn't it? Crosby and Jasmine are at a crossroads in their relationship -- do they have what it takes to stay together as a couple? Or will custody be the only thing that they share? Whether it's growing up, growing older or growing apart -- life is always interesting with the Bravermans.

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.

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.

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 do not normally watch T.V. shows or series, but I really enjoyed this one which I watched through season 4. I would have punched season 5 and 6. However, the cost for season 5 is extremely high and unreasonable. It is double the cost of season 6 so it appears that I am through watching this series. This type of entertainment is not important enough to me to wait for a price drop so I can finish watching the series.

Love the everyday problems they face and work thru.also the amount of what's going on in every body's life and how intricately they are conveyed. I didn't know anything about aspergers and now I do.I also can relate with many of the situations that go on with that family. I cry and laugh and think about them when I'm away from the tv.

This is a quick review on the entire series, not on one particular episode. My wife and I started watching it about a month ago, and are so impressed with the writing and acting that we've already finished 3 seasons.

This is the type of series designed for the whole family to watch together. It's a very realistic portrayal of a California family, along with all of the ups and downs of everyday life. It's very easy to relate to the situations that the characters find themselves in and it's emotional yet funny at the same time. If you're a member of Amazon Prime, the first 4 seasons are included with your membership.

I couldn't rate a TV series any higher than this. It's top-notch entertainment all the way.

While I basically enjoyed seasons 1 & 2, but by season 3 I've grown very tired of how the family CONSTANTLY talks over each other instead of to/with each other.

I'm also ticked at how Sarah became so stupid as to even consider making a baby with this guy she's only been dating for a few months. (Their relationship is boring and lacks chemistry.) Sarah isn't even thinking about marriage, just a baby. And to top it off she's contemplating picking up and moving to NY with this guy when her son graduates HS... like she's just going to up and leave him on his own at that point. She doesn't even know if he'll be going to college (and she certainly can't even afford to send him to community college). And she wouldn't ask her dad to take care of them while she flits away with this new guy... She's always been a mom whose kids were everything to her but in this season her son is seriously upset at the idea that his mom is even thinking about having another baby - another "family" etc. and it doesn't really seem to "register" with her. It's like she's taking the attitude of "oh well, he's just a sensitive kid - but he's almost through HS so I don't need to care about him at this point, just me - which is not at all who her character is.

I don't know, it's like the writers took a big hit on the head and forgot who their characters are. (Fortunately, the writers come to their senses in the final episode of the season - but getting there was rough, and there's still the thing with them talking over each other going forward...hopefully that tones down some).

Still an interesting show with great acting (for the most part) but this season wasn't as good as the first two.
