Parenthood

6 Seasons

Season 1
4.8 out of 5 stars (1,883) IMDb 8.1/10

Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham, Gilmore Girls), a financially strapped single mother, uproots her two teens, Amber (Mae Whitman, In Treatment) and Drew (Miles Heizer, ER), to move back home. Sarah is greeted by her father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson, Family Stone) and mother, Camille (Bonnie Bedelia, Heart Like a Wheel), who are dealing with their own marital issues. Sister Julia (Erika Christensen, Traffic) is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger, Eli Stone). Younger brother Crosby (Dax Shepard, Baby Mama) must suddenly contend with accepting responsibility when an old flame Jasmine (Joy Bryant, Antwone Fisher) shows up and he must re-evaluate his priorities. And eldest brother Adam (Peter Krause, Six Feet Under), must relinquish his preconceived expectations about what constitutes a "normal" family when he and wife Kristina (Monica Potter, Trust Me) and teen daughter Haddie (Sarah Ramos, American Dreams) learn that their eccentric son Max (Max Burkholder, Brother and Sisters), is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.

I enjoyed this show right from the beginning, but as each episode aired I fell more and more in love. The writing is intelligent and incredibly full of depth - the characters in this family have been developed in such a way that I honestly feel like I know them in real life . . . they mirror such traits that are so often found in everyone's family. The acting is absolutely top-notch. Peter Krause and Lauren Graham shine in every episode and do a nice job of anchoring as the oldest siblings. The younger two siblings, played by Dax Shepard and Erika Christensen, also give surprisingly poignant, and often hilarious, performances. As if that weren't enough, add in Monica Potter, Craig T. Nelson, Mae Whitman, and Bonnie Bedelia to perfectly round out the cast. One of my favorite things about this show is how it has lovely balance of drama and humor. Just as in real life, the most heart-wrenching of dilemmas will be quickly followed by a hilarious quip (usually perfectly delivered by Lauren or Dax) that instantly takes the viewer from tears to laughs. This is scripted family drama done to perfection. Also, the look and feel of the show is simply gorgeous - kudos to the set designers. I very much appreciate the journey I have taken with the Bravermans during these thirteen episodes, for I have very much come to care for this fictional family, and cannot wait for season 2 to begin in September.

Parenthood swept onto the airwaves mid-season this past year and filled in a void on television. As the title of my review says, the show was a real breath of fresh air. I have never been one for procedurals and doctors and lawyers, and we get a lot of that on network TV. So, it was nice to see a family show come on that was just about people. It's not flashy, or gimmicky, or trying to be hip and edgy(which most other shows fall all over themselves trying to be and end up looking and feeling like everything else). Given it's pedigree (coming from a wonderful 1989 hit film and a cute 1990-91 series)from executive producers Ron Howard, Lowell Ganz, and Babaloo Mandel, it had a lot going for it. So, let's jump right in....

The series is not about the same family in the 1989 movie or previous series. It's a whole new family. They are the Bravermans, and they reside in Berkley, California. The patriarchs of the family are Zeek and Camille Braverman(Craig T. Nelson, Bonnie Bedelia), and the family extends to their four grown kids and their families. The oldest is Adam(Six Feet Under's Peter Krause), married to Kristina(Monica Potter), and has 2 kids, Haddie and Max. Next up is Sarah(Gilmore Girls' Lauren Graham), who is a single mother to two teenage kids, Amber(Mae Whitman)and Drew. Next is Crosby(Dax Shepard), a single guy working in the music business who has a girlfriend and lives on a houseboat. And lastly, there is the youngest of the four, Julia(Erika Christensen), a lawyer, who is married to stay at home dad Joel, and has a little girl named Sydney.

Because it was a mid season show, the first season consists of only 13 episodes, instead of the usual 22 or so. Still, season 1 packs a lot into the shorter seasons.

I just started watching this series at the advice of many, many friends. I was so happy that I could stream via Amazon Prime and THEN overnight, 10 episodes in, the Prime streaming was removed. I am so disappointed!!!

This is one of the best shows on TV. Real-life drama that gets to your heart because it's stuff that actually happens in real life. You'll find yourself relating to these characters and yearning to find out what is going to happen next. Add in the subtle humor, great videography and there's not much more you need in a TV show. The actors/actresses all do a beautiful job in playing their parts. Can't wait to see what comes next in Parenthood!

I just started watching season one on Amazon Prime, was about to watch the 13th episode, and now you're telling me I have to pay for every episode?!? UGH! 5 stars for the show, 0 stars for whoever made the decision to remove it from Prime.

Shame on you, Amazon. We just bought Prime a few days ago and Parenthood was one of the main reasons. We have been enjoying watching Season 1 and then suddenly all remaining episodes are no longer free with Prime. This seems like a bait and switch move, as a loyal Amazon customer for years I did not expect this kind of total disregard for customer satisfaction.

Would give the series 5 stars, but right now I would give Amazon prime 0 stars. I might think twice before I do all my Christmas shopping on Amazon this year.

I hate sappy dramas like Brothers and Sisters with ridiculous plot lines, but this series is a breath of fresh air, and deals with real life issues and interpersonal relationships. It's a perfect balance of drama and humor, with characters both multi-dimensional and complex. It shows the daily struggles and triumphs of families today, with issues ranging from school girl bullying, single motherhood, Asperger's Syndrome, and more. The writing is smart and witty, and the actors are extremely talented at portraying the complexities of their characters. They are all outstanding but most notable are Amber Holt (played by Mae Whitman), Max Braverman (played by Max Burkholder), and Adam Braverman (played by Peter Krause).

I think this is one of the smartest shows on TV.
