Parenthood is a dramady that premiered on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 at 10pm on NBC. The series is an updated version of the 1989 film of the same title. It is also the second TV series based on that film (the previous series aired during the 1990-1991 television season).
This contemporary re-imagining of the blockbuster film depicts the colorful and imperfect Braverman family -- four grown siblings sharing the headaches, heartaches and joy of being parents. When Sarah Braverman, a financially strapped single mother, returns home to her parents and siblings in Berkeley, Calif. after packing up her Fresno apartment and uprooting her two inconvenienced kids, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew (Miles Heizer), she is greeted by her opinionated father, Zeek (Nelson), and strong mother, Camille (Bedelia) who are privately dealing with their own marital issues. As Sarah is reunited with her siblings -- sister, Julia (Christensen), and brothers Crosby (Shepard) and Adam (Krause) -- all struggling with issues of their own, it's clear that the Braverman reunion is just what they need to face the everyday challenges of modern family life.

RG's Views
Parenthood is a show that I liked right from the start. But I fell behind in season 3 and have yet to catch up. I guess that speaks to it's draw. That being said, the seasons that I watched were good. Great family drama. And one of these days I will sit down and have a marathon.
