Parenthood: This Week’s Chuckle, Cry and Cringe

Okay, so are you finally done crying yet, or have your tears at least subsided enough to read text on a screen? By the end of "Because You're My Sister," I was literally sobscreaming, a term I made up just now that means "belligerently weeping while yelling at your TV in a very humiliating and overwhelming mix of happiness and insanity." I'd like to tell you that Parenthood is the only show that does this to me, but I recently watched PBS' Animal Odd Couples and had a very similar reaction to this particularly moving segment about a goat and a horse. (Highly recommended.)

Parenthood is making it on to Best of 2012 lists, y'all. People are celebrating the Bravermans... influential people who sway executives to order more episodes and give extra money to shows. And after watching "What to My Wondering Eyes," is it really so surprising? My biggest complaint about this episode is that I don't get to sit around Zeek and Camille's Christmas tree (along with Max's sweet train) or wear new matching family scarves with the Braverman women. And where's my potty doll?

Welcome back to Parenthood! It's been so long since this show was last on, and now Sarah and Hank have a beautiful six-year-old girl together! Seriously, though, it's nice to have our show back, and so much time has passed that I wasn't even sick of Kristina's storyline at first.

Fair warning: It's kind of hard to read some of the notes I wrote during "There's Something I Need to Tell You..." because I'm bad at typing while hysterically crying. I probably shouldn't have watched a bunch of Google Chrome commercials before Parenthood came on (especially not this one), so that's partly my fault, but also this episode was basically a solid 40-odd minutes of heartstrings-pulling.

I was really impressed with last night's "The Talk." The episode wasn't great, but it did cover the N-word, our society's treatment of veterans, autism, bullying, breast cancer, adoption and the big Team Peeta vs. Team Gale Hunger Games divide -- not bad for a 40-odd-minute primetime family drama. I think Parenthood is laying it on a little too thick so far this season (with not nearly enough Camille or Amber, might I add), but given the fact that the episode ended with Adam making Kristina move up her surgery date, I don't have that much to complain about right now, so let's get to the nitty-gritty.

We did it everyone! Parenthood is back for at least 15 more episodes, and with any luck enough people tuned into last night's Season 4 premiere that there will be a lot more where that came from. Unless you're Bob Little... there's no way we'll ever see that sorry politician ever again.
