They were far from perfect and didn't always see eye to eye, but the love they shared with one another was genuinely beautiful. There wasn't a school play or family dinner that a Braverman missed. So, of course, everyone had to come together for Hank and Sarah's wedding on Thursday's series finale - even Haddie (Sarah Ramos), who hadn't been in an episode since coming out to her parents in season 5.

29 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the beginning of a new year comes the end of Parenthood, the warm family drama that has lived through six seasons on NBC despite average ratings and mild critical attention.
