Parenthood

As winter approaches its time for my wife and I to check out a new show on Netflix. Last year we finally started watching The Office. And who doesn’t a winter full of “Thats what she said” and constant pranks between Dwight and Jim. Good choice.

This year we are getting ready to welcome our baby girl into this crazy world in Feb 🙂 So we decide to start watching “Parenthood” on Netflix. Figured it would be appropriate.

All I can say is WOW.

After 2 days and 7 episodes later we are hooked on this show! It follows the Braverman family. And every branch of the Braverman family tree has a different REAL life problem. From Aspergers to a single mom to a workaholic. 

I was skeptical at first about how the show would be all lovey dovey and everything is always fine after an hr episode. But this show kept it REAL and thats what I love about the show.

Just wanted to spread the world and to all those expecting parents and even current parents. Check it out you wont be disappointed! Here is a brief summary…

Parenthood is a one-hour drama inspired by the box office hit of the same name. This re-imagined and updated Universal Media Studios/Imagine Television production follows the trials and tribulations of the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family.

Parenthood FamilySarah Braverman (Lauren Graham, “Gilmore Girls”) is a financially strapped single mother trying to raise two teenaged kids, the bright but rebellious Amber (Mae Whitman, “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”), and sullen and sensitive Drew (Miles Heizer, “ER”).
Parenthood FamilyOn the home front, Sarah and her kids live with Sarah’s larger-than-life, headstrong father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson, “Family Stone,” “Coach”), and pillar-of-strength mother Camille (Bonnie Bedelia, “Heart Like a Wheel”), who are dealing with their own marital issues.
Parenthood FamilyMeanwhile, Sarah’s sister and complete antithesis, Julia (Erika Christensen, “Traffic”) is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her loving but increasingly restless stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger, “Eli Stone”).
Parenthood FamilyCommitment-phobe Crosby (Dax Shepard, “Baby Mama”), Sarah’s younger brother, is helping raise a five-year-old son he had out of wedlock with former flame Jasmine (Joy Bryant “Antwone Fisher”).
Parenthood FamilyHowever, it’s Adam (Peter Krause, “Six Feet Under”), the oldest Braverman sibling, who has had to relinquish his expectations about what constitutes a “normal” family, as he, his quietly forceful wife Kristina (Monica Potter, “Trust Me”) and independent-minded teenage daughter Haddie (Sarah Ramos, “American Dreams”), struggle to cope with their eccentric son and Haddie’s little brother Max (Max Burkholder, “Brother and Sisters”), who has Asperger’s Syndrome.

Although each sibling and family has its own share of everyday challenges to grapple with, they still manage to be there for each other in their hours of need.
