season premiere by Suzanne
Airing on NBC Tuesdays 8/7 pm.
Parenthood is based on a movie. They already tried to make one
show based on that movie, but it didn't work out. I can't judge either the movie
or other show because I havent seen them. This TV show is pretty good so far!
It is about a woman, Sarah, who is about my age (38). She is divorced from her
druggie husband, with two kids, who is forced to move in with her parents in
Berkeley (starting over, more or less). Her brother and sister live nearby. It
is really about all of their families.
Lauren Graham of "Gilmore Girls" fame plays the woman, and her dad is played by
Craig T. Nelson. Her brother Adam is played by Peter Krause. Julie Bowen plays
his wife. It's a great cast. Sarah deals with how to move on with her life,
including dating, and dealing with her two teens, who are sulky. Adam finds out
that his son may have Asperger's.
It is a really good family drama. I enjoyed it a lot. If you like shows like
"Brothers and Sisters", you will probably like this one. It has a lot of heart,
but it's not sappy. They use some good music in the show, too.
