Parenthood, What's Goin' On Down There?
(S01E07) "Would you boys like to come over for a play date?" - Yoga girl to Crosby

I love 'Parenthood.' Yes, there's a lot of people to keep track of, but it's all good. The show has some great players, but really, all I need is Peter Krause and Lauren Graham. And Dax Shepard and Jason Ritter. He reminds me of his dad, which makes me both happy and sad, but mostly happy.

The kids on this show are awesome, too -- Max Burkholder, Mae Whitman, Tyree Brown ... ok, since I'm filling in for Danny, I'll stop crushing on all the actors and get to the review. Follow me after the jump.

Crosby Gets in Trouble on 'Parenthood' (VIDEO)

Crosby Gets in Trouble on 'Parenthood'So what is the purpose of a "play-date" with your children, anyway? Well, for the adults, you're probably not meant to be on an actual date, or to get some "play." (Ahem.) On the latest episode of 'Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC), Crosby (Dax Shepard) gets in a little trouble for messing around with a hot mother while on a play-date with his child.

'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.

Crosby Becomes a Father on 'Parenthood' (VIDEO)

Crosby Becomes a Father on 'Parenthood'The drama 'Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC) is all about family -- in case you couldn't have guessed that already from the title. But sometimes, parenthood can take many unusual forms. On the latest episode of the show, Crosby Braverman (Dax Shepard) introduces his son to his parents (played by Craig T. Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia). Things don't go necessarily as everyone might want, but that doesn't mean that things go badly.

'Parenthood' - 'The Situation' Recap

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 31st 2010 9:29AM
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.

Katie Learns About Crosby's Son on 'Parenthood' (VIDEO)

Parenthood, Crosby tells Katie about his sonHaving a baby is a big step, but it's even more complicated when you learn that your partner already has a child you knew nothing about. Imagine Katie's surprise to hear that Crosby has a son on 'Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC).

"I'm sure it was confusing, but you've also been sneaking around and hiding him, and keeping him from me for over a month," she says. And she's right, of course. Crosby should have told her as soon as he learned the truth. We're with Katie on this one.

'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.

(S01E02) "I can deal with anything: disease, illness, broken bone. Give me something I can fix, but I don't know how to deal with this. This is for life." - Adam to Kristina after learning that Max has Asperger's Syndrome

Ferris Bueller once said, "Life moves by pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

And while that bit of movie trivia is actually true (unlike say "Stupid is as stupid does" or "Pain don't hurt"), if actual life went at the speed that 'Parenthood' does, stopping to look at it would require some kind of anti-lock braking system.

Parenthood, Dax ShepardYou're minding your own business, strolling down the street, when all of a sudden, you see your ex standing there. No problem, you think. A little friendly chatter and you'll be on your way.

Not so fast there, our clueless friend. If your ex calls for her son to come over and meet "his dad," your life as you know it is over. Just ask Crosby on 'Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC). He'll tell you.

Dax Shepard Tells Bonnie Hunt His Dad Is a Costco Bully (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 1st 2010 9:41PM
On Monday's 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Dax Shepard revealed that his father regularly gets into shoving matches at Costco over food samples. "Like there's a limited amount, you're at Costco, I'm sure they can find more," Shepherd quipped. "But he's in panic mode. He'll regularly call me: 'I got into it with this clown over at Costco, he's trying to get all the pigs in a blanket'." What's worse is when his dad recruits him for backup in case there's an altercation at a gas station. Better pump up, Dax!

After what has been a long time coming, NBC's new version of 'Parenthood' is finally premiering tomorrow night. And if the anticipation wasn't already high, TV Squad received an unexpected, very nice little invitation to tune in from Opie himself. Or Richie Cunningham if you prefer.

Yes, that's right, Ron Howard, the executive producer of 'Parenthood,' did a handful of shout-outs to the media and we were included. Aren't we special?

First look at Lauren Graham on NBC's Parenthood

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 9th 2009 9:34AM
Parenthood was supposed to be one of NBC's fall shows this year. They really could have used it too, since it's actually good, and "good" seems to be in short supply at NBC these days. However, star Maura Tierney had to stop filming early on due to health reasons. Eventually she needed to leave the cast permanently, and re-shoots had to be done with her replacement, Gilmore Girls' Lauren Graham.

NBC has just released the first two promos for Parenthood, which is now premiering in March, after the Olympics. The first one features Graham as Sarah, a single mom to two difficult teenagers. Her daughter is played by Arrested Development's Mae Whitman. It's a short clip, but it's a pretty good indication of the character, which is basically what would have happened to Lorelai Gilmore if Rory hadn't turned out so perfect.

TV Squad previews NBC's new shows (part 2)

Parenthood NBC
NBC seems to be sending out their screeners in dribs and drabs, so I'm making my way through their fall offerings very slowly. I've already given you previews of both Community and Trauma, and now we've got Parenthood, a new series based on a movie that was already turned into a series nearly twenty years ago. Who says Hollywood is out of ideas?

Parenthood is basically a less-melodramatic Brothers & Sisters. It follows the Braverman clan, a family in Fresno made up of four siblings: Adam (Peter Krause), Crosby (Dax Shepard), Sarah (Maura Tierney), and Julia (Erika Christensen), along with their children and parents, played by Craig T. Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia. They all have their share of drama, but at the end of the day, they're all brought together in the most suburban of pursuits: Little League. Say it with me now: "awwww."
