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?
Do you think Kristina is going to die? I don't know, y'all. A few episodes ago, I would have given you a definite "no," but there are only six episodes left in this season (unless NBC orders more) and I'm starting to think that if the Parenthood writers believe this is the end, they'll go out with a bang and the saddest final silent montage in the history of this show. Maybe with Bob Dylan's "Simple Twist of Fate" playing over Adam coming home from his wife's funeral? I'm getting a tiny bit emotional just thinking about it, though to be clear I really just want her to get better and for her next storyline to be about like, I don't know, deciding to go back to school to become a nurse.
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.
I was really hoping last night's "Everything Is Not Okay" would open with Kristina and Adam learning that the lump isn't serious, and that the very idea of her even having cancer would propel them into a season-long story arc where they grab life by the horns. As you can imagine, I was sorely disappointed.
