Punching a Stranger in the Face on 'Parenthood' (VIDEO)

Punching a Stranger in the Face on 'Parenthood''Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC) deals with family drama and generational conflict. Through all the dysfunction, one man is the rock-steady leader of the Braverman clan. That man is Adam Braverman -- father, husband, employee. But what happens when this "rock" finds himself in a very hard place?

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Adam (Peter Krause) is facing trouble at home and at work. He has a boss who doesn't respect him, a kid suffering from a developmental disorder, and an occasionally overbearing wife. Adam's eight-year-old son Max (Max Burkholder) has Asperger's syndrome -- a form of autism which makes it hard for him to interact socially.

When Adam and his dad (Craig T. Nelson) go to the supermarket, Max sees a stranger put seventeen items in the "10 Items or Less" checkout lane. Max starts patiently removing the seven extra items, one by one -- and over and over again. The annoyed stranger yells, complains, then snaps and calls Max a "retard." Which is when Adam also snaps -- and decides he's not gonna be a nice guy anymore.

'Parenthood' - 'Perchance to Dream' Recap

Parenthood: Perchance to Dream(S01E09) "Get it off me! Get it off!" - Adam, after discovering that the Victoria's Secret bra is his daughter's and not his wife's

Well, I'm totally with Adam on this one. Sure, Haddie could wear the bra -- there's no crime in a girl wanting to feel pretty -- but I wouldn't let her leave the house with her shirt hanging off her shoulder and her bra strap showing. It's not a double standard! Drew didn't have half his underwear showing!

Besides that, Haddie and her boyfriend were making out on his bed (without her bra on, since she took it off in anger before leaving the house!). And, hello?!! Parents shouldn't let teens be alone in a bedroom with the door closed. Ok, I feel slightly better now.

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.
