One of the things that I have always loved about the NBC series is how unflinching it has been since Max's diagnosis about the effect his condition has had on his long-suffering parents and, by extension, the entire Braverman family.
Change is not always easy to embrace - even good change. And that fellow Parenthood fans, is where we get our weekly drama.
The show did a nice job balancing the stories, even if some of them weren't that solid. That has always been a plight of the show.
Yeah, there's a lot of good stuff here, and it ends with the double whammy of a military homecoming combined with a surprise proposal, but it's also an episode that features Kristina deciding to run for mayor in a moment that made me say, "What!?"
On a show with a big cast like this, the premieres have to do a lot of expository heavy lifting, but any hour that can give us the Amber/Ryan moment is fine by me.
No show makes you feel better for turning into a blubbering mess. It's great to have it back, regardless of the night.
