Tv Season Info

Series 2 of the drama finds the extended Braverman brood facing an assortment of challenges. Adam (Peter Krause) deals with difficult bosses (William Baldwin, Anthony Carrigan) at the shoe company, offers sister Sarah (Lauren Graham) a position there and frets about his future. Kristina (Monica Potter), meanwhile, fears that the stress of raising a son (Max Burkholder) with Asperger's syndrome could wreck her and Adam's marriage, and seeks to strengthen it as a result. Daughter Haddie (Sarah Ramos), for her part, enters school politics, begins a relationship with a recovering alcoholic (Michael B. Jordan) and makes an accidental, embarrassing phone call to her folks. Of course, with an extended family as large as the Bravermans, those aren't the only characters and stories explored. Youngest brother Crosby, for instance, works on his relationship with Jasmine (Joy Bryant), though their perceptions of it may not be in sync; and Sarah (Lauren Graham) struggles with rebellious daughter Amber (Mae Whitman).

Parenthood is a show that touches on the real issues faced by many families today. A show that has us laughing our loud and simultaneously reaching for a tissue - and we are so happy that it is back!

I said it before and I'll say it again, I'm a fan of Amber and Drew's relationship. It's solid and chock full o' mutual respect.

Each week, I become more invested in the lives of the Braverman family.

As the series has proceeded, what initially looked like a bunch of talented but disparate actors has cohered into a believable clan.

This well-constructed drama is something to treasure on the TV schedule -- it's a show that respects our everyday experiences and emotions and yet also manages to entertain.
