TV show description:
Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham) is a financially strapped single mother. She packs up her Fresno apartment and uproots her two inconvenienced kids, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew (Miles Heizer), to make a big move back home to Berkeley to be closer to her family.

Sarah is greeted by her larger-than-life and headstrong father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson), and her pillar-of-strength mother, Camille (Bonnie Bedelia). Unbeknown to Sarah, her stable parents are privately dealing with marital issues.

Meanwhile, Sarah’s sister and complete antithesis, Julia (Erika Christensen) is a successful corporate attorney who juggles work and motherhood, alongside her stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger).

Sarah’s younger brother is commitment-phobic Crosby (Dax Shepard) who must suddenly contend with accepting adult responsibility when an old flame, Jasmine (Joy Bryant) shows up unexpectedly and he must re-evaluate his priorities.

Still, it’s Adam (Peter Krause), the oldest Braverman sibling, who must relinquish his preconceived expectations about what constitutes a “normal” family. He, his wife Kristina (Monica Potter), and teenage daughter Haddie (Sarah Ramos) learn that eccentric little brother Max (Max Burkholder) is diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.

Although each sibling and family has its own share of life to grapple with, perhaps this reunion is the push they need to help each other pick up the pieces and focus on the everyday challenges that families face while raising children and starting over.

I was a faithful viewer until Season 5 finale.
Very disappointed that the gay virus has infected this show too.

If it comes back next season I won’t be watching … too bad, it was a good show up until this episode.

Hey NBC … not everyone is jumping on the gay bandwagon … please respect that.

Its ok that this NBC show excepted the family dynamics even gay ones. The whole point of this show is to be real and a lot of families have gay people in them.

This show is a must keep! It is arguably one of the best shows on. Anyone who has kids could relate to at leas to be of the characters. This show is like Gilmore girls, it’s witty and fabulous and you feel like the characters are your own family. This is not the type show that can just end if you must end you must give at least a year to finish up story lines or leave ppl hanging and mad. But ID recommend to keep it longer , bare min a year. Trust me!

Everytime I watch parenthood, I cry! It’s SO good! & addicting. I watched the first and second season straight through on netflix and was sad every time an episode finished even though I could just watch the next one. I’m SO hoping for a 4th season. If the show isn’t cancelled, you can guarantee I will be a dedicated fan and follower of the show!
