Parenthood Renewed!

May 13, 2011

Yay!!! Parenthood was picked up for a third season by NBC this morning!!! I love this show. I love the characters, the writing, the sets (God, I’d kill for Joel and Julia’s house), the actors (Mae Whitman should be a household name)… I am very proud of them.

And that’s saying a lot considering that I didn’t even watch but a few episodes during their debut season. Based on a movie that came out eons ago, I said, “No, sir,” when I first heard about the show, despite it’s impressive cast. Then, one day at the end of last summer, as I was whiling away a Sunday afternoon, I discovered it on OnDemand. I watched every episode I could find and then delved in immediately as the new season started. The Braverman family is one of the most realistic ever portrayed in the medium of television. The way they constantly talk over one another – like people really do in real life – always makes me feel like I’m at home. The way they worry about each other, the way they dance like they were thirteen again… it’s just a brilliant show in a way too competitive timeslot. Hello, The Good Wife.

So, prepare yourselves… watch it on Hulu, Netflix, whatever, but be ready for season 3 and get that DVR ready. You’ll thank me later.
