This is "our show" right now. I talked about our addiction with Friday Night Lights a few months ago. Once we finished that series, we wanted a new one. We started watching seasons 1 and 2 of Parenthood on Netflix and are now trying to catch up to season 3 online. It wasn't until a few episodes into Parenthood that we realized both shows had the same writer. No wonder we love it so much!
Watching Parenthood is not only fun, but it helps me feel validated in my craziness. When Christina is hormonal and in tears and Adam just doesn't understand, I give Colt a "see-I'm-not-the-only-one" look.
This show has everything ... every character you could ever need. I cringe when I see one of the teenage girls do something so totally ridiculous and annoying that I did at that age. I roll my eyes when the husbands just don't understand how right their wives really are. (Okay, okay .... only half serious.) I get fired up when grandpa saves the day with one of his blunt, intense comments or speeches ... or punches. It's just so good!
If you're needing a new show full of emotion and comedy, this is the one. You won't regret it!
