New Show Recap: Parenthood 5×22, “The Pontiac”

After a season full of surprises and heartbreak, Parenthood ends season five with the same theme. Haddie comes home from college with great hair and a girlfriend, Anna Beth Gish makes an appearance as Ryan’s domineering mother, and Joel and Julia hold hands. Oh Parenthood. I don’t even know where to start.

New Show Recap: Parenthood 5.18, “The Offer”

I had high hopes for episode 18 of Parenthood, especially about Joel and Julia’s storyline. It turns out, not too much happened there, but everyone else had plots that moved right along.

This week’s episode is all about Crosby’s bundle of joy, Aida, and her upcoming baptism. The show opens with Crosby and Jasmine discussing the upcoming ceremony with Jasmine’s mom.

New Show Recap: Parenthood 5×15, “Just Like Home”

Parenthood has returned from its Olympic hiatus, and presented just the kind of episode I love. It covered just about every storyline, and there were great scenes where most of the cast was together. The Braverman siblings shared a moment, and the grandkids are learning to lean on each other too.

A few hours before Thursday’s episode aired, a tweet went out warning viewers they’d be moved to tears at some point. The Twitter account was not wrong. This was one heavy episode.

New Show Recap: Parenthood, 5.05, “Let’s Be Mad Together”

There’s a lot for the Bravermans to be mad about in this episode of Parenthood. It starts with Crosby being mad at Adam for trading studio time for the rights to the songs for Ashes of Rome, and gets more dramatic from there.

New Show Recap: Parenthood, Season 4, Episode 15, “Because You’re My Sister”

This week’s Parenthood was the finale of the fourth season. How did that happen? When did finales start happening in January? ANYWAY. Season four wrapped up nicely, but without confirmation of a renewal for next season, there isn’t much left to wonder about over the hiatus.

New Show Recap: Parenthood, Episode 4.14, “One Step Forward, Two Steps Back”

This week’s Parenthood moves ahead a few story lines, ignores a few, and brings Ryan back for a second chance at work and love. At the end of the episode, things are starting to get back to the way things where at the beginning of the season. Which is a good thing, because there’s only […]

New Show Recap: “Parenthood,” Season 4, Episode 13, “Small Victories”

Just when you think Parenthood’s fourth season couldn’t get any heavier than Kristina having breast cancer and Sarah switching boyfriends, it does. This week’s episode’s title is Small Victories, and really, the most notable victory was that Max is now showering on a regular basis.
