Twenty Years of Parenthood

The Cast of Parenthood

I don’t have time to write a full post right now, but as I was getting ready to leave my apartment, I caught a rerun of the pilot episode of NBC’s Parenthood.  I couldn’t turn it off, even though it was already halfway over and I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on and who the characters were.  It totally sucked me in.  The characters are raw, the emotions are real, and the acting is really quite impressive.  I was totally transfixed by an emotional scene between Lauren Graham and what I take to be her teenage son.

Parenthood is based on a 1989 movie starring Steve Martin.  A TV series based on the movie hit the airwaves in 1990, but it didn’t last very long.  Now, 20 years later, director Ron Howard is at it again, and it seems like he may have something promising on his hands.

If I get the chance to watch the show as it progresses, I’ll keep sharing my thoughts.  Either way, I recommend you tune in.

Especially noteworthy are two of my fave TV actors, Peter Krause (Six Feet Under, Sports Night) and Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls).
