A family tree with Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) and Camille Braverman (Bonnie Bedelia) serving as the patriarch and matriarch. After forty-six years of marriage, they've managed to keep their foundation intact by burying their problems underneath the surface for the sake of their now-adult children. Adam (Peter Krause) is the first-born and the ripest apple the tree has to offer. He runs a shoe company, has a supportive wife, two children (boy and girl) and a beautiful home to share with them. He's a dog short of "The American Dream". Sarah (Lauren Graham), is the unstable daughter returning home at thirty-eight years of age with her rebellious daughter and sensitive son to live with Zeek and Camille. Crosby (Dax Shepard), is a happy-go-lucky bachelor living in the now, on a docked boat. He has no idea that his frivolous life is about to change tremendously. Then there is Julia (Erika Christensen). She is the bread-winning shot-calling lawyer, whose husband mans the stay-at-home-dad duties. Each family will face their own challenges, but how they propose to deal with them is what will keep them together or tear them apart. —Jordan Ray Allen
The Good, The Bad, and Parenthood
I was very impressed with the Pilot of this show. I am glad Lauren Graham has the chance to do such emotional acting. I was kind of worried about her in this role, because i thought she was just going to act like Lorelei from Gilmore Girls. The bottom line is, she is great. Peter Krause is good just like he is good in everything he is in. Craig T. Nelson is just as good. Dax Shepard is pretty good along with the rest of the cast. The plots they come up with are mildly engrossing, but I am watching it because I like the characters. The story revolves around this single mother (Graham) who has to move back into her parents house along with her two kids. If you like to watch family dramas, than Parenthood is a must see!
