I've shared before that I started watching the entire series of Parenthood back in January. I just finished this weekend. I crammed six seasons of thirty-nine minute episodes into six weeks! It was ridiculous! I was eating, sleeping, and breathing this show. Once I got close to the end I was determined to see how it ended as quickly as possible. Tab would get home and laugh. I watched while I cooked dinner. I watched before bed. I was watching all the time!
If you haven't watched this series, I strongly recommend it!! It might make you want to have four kids and a big table outside under some pretty outdoor lights, but you won't regret it!
If you don't want to hear endings or things that happen, stop reading here. Check out this post after you've watched.
Today I'm sharing my top three (eh...I think I had four or five) favorite moments or things about the show, Parenthood.
#1 Amber's life
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way Amber's life turned out!! She seemed to be fighting an uphill battle almost her entire life. A bad relationship with her dad, a fiance who had some major issues he had to work through, a big break-up, being a single mom, and on and on...I was so excited about seeing her married with another kiddo! And...I was so glad Ryan was a part of her son's life!
Look how happy she is!!
Also...we watched Friday Night Lights and were big fans of that show too. I loved seeing all those guys throughout this series!
I had to include this picture. Don't they look so gorgeous??
#2 Crosby's sense of humor
I can't be alone when I say that was one of my very favorite parts! He brought the sarcasm throughout the show and I loved it!
#3 Joel and Julia
I couldn't find the exact image I really wanted. When Joel showed up for Aida's baby dedication, I was a blubbering mess. My heart was so happy. He messed up. She messed up. But I was so glad he took that little step and came to the baby dedication. It was 10:30 p.m. and I was sobbing in bed. No lie.
What team were you on?? I definitely thought they both messed up, but I have to say I was Team Joel! What about you??
Awe!!! Look how he's looking at her! So glad they got back together. This was definitely one of my very favorite story lines/moments.
#4 Kristina, her mom worry, and her family
Especially the beginning seasons, she was definitely one of my very favorite parts. I'm sure all moms could relate to Kristina.
I remember way back in the beginning she calls Adam (who is at work) and asks, "Where do you want to go for dinner tonight? I was thinking A (can't remember the names) or B."
Adam responds, "Oh, let's go to A."
She quickly says, "Really? I thought B would be perfect tonight." (And she continues going on and on about why they should go to restaurant B.)
All the while Adam is busy at work. He could care less about where they're going to dinner later. I could totally relate to Kristina! Poor Tab! I do that to him all the time. He could probably care less, but he humors me. :)
#5 Braverman Family Dinners....do I need to say more? :)
Seriously, ladies!! If you've watched, PLEASE tell me your favorite part! I'd love to hear all about it! I was a HUGE fan of this show!! Team Joel or Team Julia?
I also need your help about what to watch next. What do you think?
