'Parenthood' - 'The Big O' Recap

(S01E06) "Wow, Crosby, you're a dad." - Zeek, after hearing about Crosby's son for the first time

I'll admit it. 'Parenthood' has been a hard show to read. It tries very hard to connect the audience with the human drama of the American family, but at the same time, it expects you to understand and appreciate every problem they come across.

It drags you through their cornfield of sadness and expects you to come out feeling as happy and reserved as the characters do in the end. It makes me wish life actually worked this way. Then it just makes me angrier.

'Parenthood' - 'The Situation' Recap

Tyree Brown as Jabbar and Dax Shepard as Crosby Braverman in 'Parenthood' - 'The Situation'(S01E05) It's really getting hard to watch 'Parenthood,' and not in a "Gee, this show is so painfully real that it makes me question the true nature of love and family devotion" kind of way.

It's quite the opposite.

The seams are really starting to show as the episodes try to stretch across an entire season. It now feels so unbelievable because of the lackluster characters and dialogue that I'm starting to feel just as bored as the people look on the screen.

'Parenthood' - 'The Deep End of the Pool' Recap

(S01E03) "You know Crosby, however hard you think it is having a kid, just double it." - Adam to Crosby as Crosby cleans kid puke out of his car

This week, things have slowed down a bit, compared to the land speed record that last week's episode achieved. And the show has started to grow on me a little bit.

It scored some great moments of sentiment and honest drama that were endearing and drew me a little closer to the characters, but it's still lacking in that other, all important area of the dramedy: the comedy.

NBC Ratings Still Good After Olympics

The NBC logoSure the wall-to-wall Winter Olympics left a lot of people wondering why they should give half-a-crap about ice dancing, but NBC has bounced back with its post-Olympic lineup.

NBC's two new prime time series, 'Parenthood' and 'The Marriage Ref,' won the ratings game against their competitors, and even Jay Leno's triumphant return to 'The Tonight Show' beat David Letterman's 'Late Show.'

Of course, this is just the premiere week for these shows and it's not known if they can retain the numbers that have helped them back into first place for the first time in a good long while. At least the executives can breathe a little easier and Jeff Zucker can rest assured that he won't be losing his job anytime soon as opposed to maybe losing his job by some kind of divine intervention.

What to Watch: March 2

'Parenthood' (10PM, NBC) series premiere
She's back! Though, like many a 'Gilmore Girls' fan, we're still holding out hope for a 'GG' movie that will update us on the citizens of Stars Hollow, we can definitely get behind the prime time return of 'Gilmore Girls' mama Lauren Graham. Graham plays a struggling single mom who moves back in with her parents (Craig T. Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia) in this TV remake of the 1989 Steve Martin movie. The series has had a storied trip to NBC's schedule, as original star Maura Tierney had to drop out to focus on breast cancer and the series was pushed from the network's fall schedule. But with a cast that also includes 'Six Feet Under' and 'Dirty Sexy Money' alum Peter Krause, Joy Bryant, Mae Whitman and Erika Christensen, here's hoping the family dramedy will prove to be worth the wait. PS -- This marks the second attempt at a TV redo of the movie; a short-lived 1990 series featured David Arquette, Ed Begley Jr. and, in one of his first roles, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Shows We're Looking Forward To, Now That the Olympics Are Over

by Gary Susman, posted Mar 1st 2010 3:00PM
Now that the Olympic drama of icebound athletic competition (and tearjerking backstories) is over, TV is ready to resume airing real drama. And by real drama, we mean, of course, fake drama, scripted by writers and performed by actors.

It seems like most of television went into hibernation during the Olympics, with only 'Lost,' 'American Idol,' and a handful of other shows daring to take on the unstoppable might of Bob Costas. Now that the games are over, however, March will see the long-awaited return of some favorite series and the premieres of some anticipated new shows.

There are some big events this month, including the return of Jay Leno to 'The Tonight Show' (tonight on NBC), the Oscars (March 7, ABC), and March Madness basketball (starting March 18 on CBS). There are also reliable old favorites returning, including 'Gossip Girl' (March 8, the CW), 'America's Next Top Model' (March 10, the CW), 'The Celebrity Apprentice' (March 14, NBC), 'South Park' (March 17, Comedy Central) and 'Dancing With the Stars' (March 22, ABC). You can see a list of the whole month's notable TV premieres, finales, and specials here. Among these are a handful of new and returning shows we're especially looking forward to in March.

What to Watch: March 1 - 7

The Academy Awards - Sunday March 7, 8 pm, CTV/ABC

Most years, there are five best picture nominees and I've usually seen one or none of them. This is due in part to the fact that the noms are usually released in theatres about five minutes before the ceremony, and the fact that I'm a lazy bum who never goes to theatres. But this year there are ten nominees in this category. Guess what? I've seen one of them. Go 'Inglourious Basterds'! As far as I know, you are totally the best picture!
