For six beautiful seasons, Parenthood made us feel so many feels—actually make that all of the feels. From the glorious highs and the devastating lows, we've shed tears of joy and despair along with the Braverman family of the NBC drama. Before we bid farewell to the Jason Katims' beloved series, it's only fitting that we countdown to some of Parenthood's most gut-wrenching and tear-jerking moments. Grab your tissues for this one because you’re about to full-on ugly cry.
Pics: The 10 Most-Watched TV Series Finales Ever!
Season 1, Episode 1- "Pilot"
Max Braverman's struggle with Asperger's syndrome is a narrative that plays out through the entire series and guides many of Adam and Kristina's most emotional storylines. But it's in the show's pilot episode when Adam acknowledges Max's condition for the first time to Zeek— "Dad, there's something wrong with my son" — that brings the waterworks everytime. But in true »
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. Over the course of its run, Parenthood has garnered a reputation fairly unique among today’s television landscape: that of a quiet tearjerker. By observing many types of familial relationships, from aunts and nieces to grandparents and grandchildren, the show manages to elicit emotions from overwhelming joy to authentic sorrow. Below are the most affecting moments from each season, and a look at how each of these scenes prove what the show is capable of at its best:
Diner in the Rain: “Lost And Found” (Season 1, Episode 13)
The first season of Parenthood was wobbly. Much of the show’s appeal came from knowing these characters and caring about their often-minor exploits. That’s a difficult feat to pull off in thirteen episodes, »

Cargill and I step into the ring to go a few rounds with another first film by a prominent director. This time, we spar with Walter Hill’s Hard Times. Charles Bronson plays Chaney, a drifter with iron fists who rolls into Depression-era New Orleans and teams up with local hustler Speed (James Coburn). The two of them proceed to dupe and deck every pick-up fighter in the area. Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hours) demonstrates in his first outing a number of the thematic and character trademarks that would come to epitomize his work. Meanwhile Cargill and I make many of the inappropriate jokes and gleeful geek-outs that have come to epitomize Junkfood Cinema.

Charles Bronson was 55 at the time of “St Ives” (1976). He was just a couple years past his star-making turn in “Death Wish”, and was enjoying a surprising run of success. I say surprising because Bronson had, after all, been little more than a craggy second banana for most of his career. Now, inexplicably, he had box office clout as a leading man. In fact, Bronson reigned unchallenged for a few years as the most popular male actor in international markets. Yes, even bigger than Eastwood, Newman, Reynolds, Redford, or any other 1970s star you can name. Many of Bronson’s movies were partly financed by foreign investors, for even if his movies didn’t score stateside, they still drew buckets of money in Prague or Madrid. Some have suggested that his popularity on foreign screens was due to how little he said in his movies (there was »
