Critic Reviews for Parenthood: Season 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The show is still a quality piece of drama worth your time.

Parenthood... [is] a lighthearted, often sentimental, but never saccharine drama that seeks to form an emotional bond with its audience. In essence, Parenthood is the kind of drama families should be watching with one another.

I enjoy it for its mix of tones as much as I do for the terrific performances from the cast.

A sprawling, multigenerational ensemble series, Parenthood might look like a soap opera, suspiciously overstocked with sequences of family members dancing in the kitchen. Yet it's one of only two great dramas on network television.

Having too many compelling directions to take a series in is far better than having too few.

September 13, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Parenthood works because the show has kept up with the times.
