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 5×15, “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.
