Parenthood Season 3 Spoilers: What's Next for the Bravermans?
When last we left Parenthood's Team Braverman, things were finally looking up a bit, with Crosby's, Adam's, and Sarah's relationships all recovering from earlier bumps in the road. Julia seemed to be moving on from the thought of adopting Zoe's baby, Amber was ready to get out of the food service industry, and Drew had finally poked his head out of his shell enough to get a girlfriend and some confidence. As much drama (and melodrama) as the Braverman family had dealt with in season 3, it looked as if the storm clouds had finally cleared a little.
But wait! This is Parenthood after all, so the final seven episodes of the season are bound to amp things up. That amping up looks to be starting with Braverman partiarch Zeek, generally a peripheral character that tends to pop up in other people's »

Veteran comic book artist Luis Eduardo Barreto has passed away from complications of meningitis. He was 57.
Born in Uruguay, Barreto’s work was seen most often in DC Comics titles in the 1980s and early 1990s. He may be widely known for his run on The New Teen Titans, but it was his more noirish work where he truly excelled, bringing a darker touch to Superman: Speeding Bullets, Batman: Scar of the Bat, Batman: Master of the Future, Batman/Daredevil: King of New York, The Shadow Strikes, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, The Phantom, and my personal favorite, Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography.
Later in his career, Barreto took over the long-running newspaper comic strip Judge Parker before being diagnosed with meningitis. Most recently, he drew the Superman Retroactive: 70′s for DC, and he and his son Diego succeeded Peter Krause on Mark Waid’s Irredeemable for Boom! Studios.

Sure, Alexandra Daddario’s Kate may have gotten blown up by a bomb on White Collar (and yes, we’re still not over it) but on Parenthood, it’s her turn to cause some (emotional) explosions, specifically between Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter).
Last week, we were introduced to Rachel (Daddario), Adam and Crosby’s scantily-clad new secretary and office assistant, who unknowingly caused ripples between Adam and Kristina. (Kristina, who has been dealing with post-pregnancy stresses and insecurities, was not too happy to meet her husband’s hot, young employee.) But tonight, as Daddario teases, things may get a little more intentional. »

They've opened up shop and welcomed their first customer with Grammy winner Cee Lo Green. Now Adam and Crosby's burgeoning business is getting a receptionist on Parenthood. Enter, Rachel (Alexandra Daddario).
"She's a young girl who is sort of figuring out her life and really wants to go into the music business," Daddario tells TVGuide.com of her multi-episode arc starting on Tuesday's episode (10/9c, NBC). "She comes in and she sort of causes a little bit of drama for Adam (Peter Krause)."

This season of Parenthood has decidedly taken the Bravermans into uncharted — and slightly darker — territory. Sarah (Lauren Graham) is struggling to help her ex-husband Seth (John Corbitt) sober up, Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter) have a new baby and no money, Julia (Erika Christensen) has hit more than a few snags on her quest for another child with Joel (Sam Jaeger), and Crosby (Dax Shepard) is looking for any way he can to stay afloat. And that’s just the adults.
Well, as the show moves into November sweeps (a critical month for television shows), things are only »

Criminal Minds Gets Dirty, Sexy, Money for Hotch?
One former Dirty, Sexy, Money star just landed a brand new gig. Her name is Bellamy Young, but you may know her as Ellen Darling from the ABC dramedy, which also starred Peter Krause, Donald Sutherland, Natalie Zea, Lucy Liu, and Blair Underwood, among others. Dirty, Sexy, Money may be over, but Criminal Minds on CBS is still going strong. The series just landed Ms. Young as a guest star.
When the actress comes to the Bau for a visit, she’ll be portraying Beth, a museum curator. Beth has a meet cute with Hotch, a.k.a. actor Thomas Gibson, in the park during some triathlon training. Will there be romantic sparks? As we reported previously, actor Charles S. Dutton will also appear in this episode as a boxing trainer.
What’s the skinny on Hotch this season? According to EW, »

Season three of Parenthood has been all about new beginnings, but it was no more abundantly clear than last night, as Kristina gave birth to a baby girl named Nora with Crosby in the delivery room. Now's the time when things get more interesting, since a new baby will certainly have ramifications that affect the rest of the family as a whole and Nora was born to two tightly wound perfectionists that have barely been holding it together these days.
Now that Nora is in the picture, where do we go from here?

Now that "Friday Night Lights" has finally been recognized by the Emmy voters, we're going to start campaigning for NBC's touching family drama "Parenthood" as the most underrated, exquisite show that's deserving of far, far more awards attention.
On tonight's "Parenthood," the Braverman family will invite a new member into the mix. We just hope that baby girl is enjoying her last peaceful moments, because once she pops into the world, she's going to discover that being a Braverman comes with a whole lot of baggage.
In the meantime, we've already watched tonight's amazing episode, so here are the top five reasons you should, too.
1. Adam Braverman (Peter Krause) "hips it up." After Crosby (Dax Shepard) asks his big brother to loosen up his tie for their meeting with a hip hop star, Adam takes things just a little bit too far. Actually, sorry, we're going to need to amend that. »
One of the most interesting things about this season of Parenthood is that the plots that were introduced at the tail end of season two are being wrapped up fairly quickly. Instead of stretching, say, Kristina's pregnancy or Julia's search for a baby for the entire 18 episode span of the season, Parenthood has chosen to focus not on the event itself but on the aftermath of the event and what effect the event has on the family unit.
On next Tuesday's episode, it looks like we'll finally get to meet the newest Braverman and, as expected, she has to make an entrance.

Fire up some Huevos Braveros because Deadline is reporting that NBC has ordered two additional episodes of Parenthood. While the show may not be a huge ratings hit, it's been consistent since its debut last spring and has become the network's top-rated drama. The show originally had an order of 16 episodes, but I wouldn't be surprised if it eventually gets a full season order of 22 episodes or 24, with these two episodes added in.
Telling the story of the Braverman family, led by Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) and Camille (Bonnie Bedelia) and featuring siblings Adam (Peter Krause), Sarah (Lauren Graham), Crosby (Dax Shepard), and Julia (Erika Christensen), Parenthood rose in the ratings last week in its Tuesdays at 10:00 timeslot. To check out promo for the fourth episode of the season ("Clear Skies From Here on Out"), where Zeek gets a commercial, Camille does some soul searching, and Drew goes on his first date with Amy, »

Parenthood season premiere review
- Lynette Rice
The third season of Parenthood has seen the Braverman family in a bit of a tizzy. Everyone's life is in a bit of an upheaval at the moment, from Adam's new baby/business to Julia's baby desperation, Sarah's luck in love/problems with Amber, and Crosby's torch carrying for Jasmine. The last 10-15 episodes of the show, dating back to the middle of last season, have continued to pile things onto the Bravermans and it doesn't look like things will be slowing down any time soon.

The show's executive producer Jason Katims revealed that Daddario will appear in "at least several episodes" but her debut is expected to be in the season's eighth instalment.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Alexandra Daddario — who has played Neal’s now-and-then girlfriend, Kate, on-and-off over the past three seasons of the USA Network hit — is joining the NBC family drama’s third season. The actress first appears in Episode 8 as Rachel, the new receptionist at Adam (Peter Krause) and Crosby’s (Dax Shepard) new business venture, The Luncheonette.

Tuesday's episode of Parenthood took the baton from the solid, transitional premiere and ran with it, presenting 42 minutes of plot development that launched us into the next phase of each respective Braverman's life. Sarah and Mark are over the moon, despite some initial trepidation; Adam and Crosby are finally following their dreams and pursuing a career path that could be fulfilling as well as lucrative; and Julia is trying to find any bit of rope to hold onto in her quest to adopt a baby.
In "Step Right Up", the upcoming third episode of the 16 episode season, it seems that change will continue to be the name of the game for Team Braverman. This time, though, it's all about adjusting to the differences in your life and making due with what you've got.

(This review may contain spoilers for Parenthood seasons 1 and 2.)
Parenthood is thankfully back for a third season – considering that at one point during season 2 its continuation seemed like a long shot. The critically-praised family drama has returned to see three generations of the Braverman family deal their ever-changing lives and the surprise announcement at the end of last season.
When we last saw Adam and Kristina Braverman (Peter Krause and Monica Potter, respectively), Kristina had just given Adam the news that, as a byproduct of one too many margaritas, and well…you know – she was expecting the couple’s third child. Unfortunately, this otherwise happy news came on the heels that Adam was fired from his job at Tsn, the sneaker corporation he ...

On Tuesday, Parenthood returned for its 16 episode third season with an episode that encapsulated all that is good about the show. After an extended hiatus, we were thrust back into the lives of the Braverman family, where Adam is thinking about a career change, Julia wants to adopt a baby from the coffee girl at work, Crosby still isn't over Jasmine, and Sarah's trying to come to terms with turning 40, losing her child, and reuniting with a former flame. Not to mention, we've already seen arrests, a dance party, and the emergence of Drunk Haddie, and it's only episode one.
With a series of new storylines opened up in "I Don't Want to Do This Without You", where could things go for Team Braverman?

Chicago – There’s something comforting about a family like the Bravermans. It’s a blend of perspective and identification that allows us to look at the clan at the center of a family drama like “Parenthood”. The show returns tonight on NBC at 9 p.m. Cst (and the second season of which was just released by Universal on DVD), and both relate to their situation and be happy that our lives aren’t as complicated. With one of the strongest ensembles on television, “Parenthood” has developed a loyal audience for good reason. There are still frustrating flaws with the screenwriting and storytelling on this show, but I like that there’s always at least one family drama on the fall schedule. It’s a TV staple that will never go away.
TV Rating: 3.5/5.0

NBC’s Parenthood kicks off its third season this Tuesday at 10/9c, and thankfully there’s no shortage of family drama. Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Jasmine (Joy Bryant) are back out of love — but for how long? Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina are baby-bound — but will complications ensue? Sarah (Lauren Graham) and Mark (Jason Ritter) are in puppy love — but there’s a twist. And that’s just a third of the Braverman clan!
Showrunner Jason Katims answers TVLine’s questions about what to expect from the heart-wrenching drama’s new year.

I had hoped to have a full review of tonight's fantastic Parenthood season opener ("I Don't Want to Do This Without You"), but unfortunately I'm being pulled in a thousand directions at the moment, so you'll have to settle for a glowing (if brief) recommendation to tune in tonight when this remarkable and emotionally powerful series returns for its third season. Five months have passed since we last saw the sprawling Braverman clan, and change is in the air for nearly all of the family members. Adam (Peter Krause) is still out of work and has been reduced to loafing around the house and going on interviews for jobs that he doesn't really want and is over qualified for, having lost his purpose and identity as the family's breadwinner; Kristina (Monica Potter), meanwhile, is quite pregnant and quite capable of bringing home the bacon, having gone back to work.
