Family dramas always have been one of television's most difficult genres to do properly, without getting too sweet, too overwrought, or much too predictable. Parenthood, like Friday Night Lights, is as good as the family drama genre gets.

Man, is it ever heartbreaking to watch.

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.

It's going to be an exciting year on Parenthood.

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!?"

September 27, 2013 Full Review Source: AV Club

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.

September 27, 2013 Full Review Source: HitFix

No show makes you feel better for turning into a blubbering mess. It's great to have it back, regardless of the night.

Moments of intelligence and revelation never add up to long-term character change or even the slightest revolution in family dynamics.
