parenthood (the show)...weekly spoilers

Like Tree41Likes

Pretty good episode this week. (but not as intense as the last couple in my opinion )

Did you guys know that they tried to make this show in the 90's and it was cancelled after one season? And that the whole thing is based on a movie with the same title?

Spoilers:

I want Crosby and Jasmine back together right now! I think that by saying that she should be with the doctor makes it clear that he truly does love her and Jabar. He only wants the best for them and he can see that the doctor is a good man and will treat them right. This shows that he has grown up and matured and is ready for their relationship! I hope Jasmine realizes this (Although I can see it being hard to get back with a man that cheated on you). Maybe the writers can make the doctor move away or something....Haha

I'm glad Christina and Adam made up. I'm also glad Christina took the high road with Rachel, I thought that was very true to her character. The boy who plays Max is a wonderful actor especially for his age!

Hope Amber does well at her new job!

agree that i like christina and adam and loved when they said "you're my best friend"...and i also agree that max is SO believable and annie's reaction was also realistic!

i still feel bad for julia! i hope that girl comes around or she's going to lose her chance for getting her baby a good home. i think she'll leave him on her doorstep or something dramatic. she's a bit unstable. still wanting that boys love when it's not there. i am confused, is julia unable to get pregnant again? was she pregnant with her daughter or did they adopt?

so sarah and her guy might have a baby? eek! exciting. what's there age difference? i just remember she turned 40 this season and had that party.

Adam and Christina's emotional scenes are so good! Adam also says the sweetest things.

I forgot about Sarah and the teacher! Maybe they will have a baby... I mean, he is younger (idk by how much either) and she'll probably feel like he deserves the chance to have children. Maybe she'll think it'll be better this time around since he seems like a stand-up guy compared to her ex-husband.

The pregnant teenager, Zoey, is very unstable. I hope her boyfriend doesn't do something crazy. (He's controlling and Zoey says it's because "he loves her"...classic excuse. I can see him getting angry very quickly). Did a little digging and....Julia was told that she had scarring on her uterus and that it would be hard to get pregnant again.

@greenjumper, the show is based on a Steve Martin comedy from late 80's-early 90's. Great movie. Bittersweet. I get choked up everytime I see it even before I had kids!! I was pretty young first time I saw it and it really opened my eyes to what parenting is really like (through humor).

The show is great though. I didn't think I'd like it as much as the movie but I do!

I like how Crosby is growing up. I hope they can work it out even though Dr. Joe is being sooo nice. I don't know how Julia can remain so calm and civil when that girl keeps putting them on this rollercoaster ride! I think she'll do something dramatic too -- leave baby on doorstep... Speaking of babies, little Nora is soooo cute!

I bought the DVD from season 1 (on sale). I can see some evolution of the show. Zek seems to have mellowed since then. Adam was in deep denial about Max. Crosby was a complete idiot.

Soooo, I kind of like that Amber has a (seemingly) good guy interested in her but how old his he? He has to be at least 28 or something and I'm leaning more toward 30's if he's running for office! Did they ever say how old he was? And how old is Amber? I mean, whatever, age is just a number at least she's not in high school (and I believe Hadie had an older boyfriend too, almost forgot about him and I didn't really mind that for some reason).

I'm sort of in between about the whole Jasmine and Crosby thing. I like his new girlfriend and I kind of think Jasmine is mostly feeling this way because he is with someone else. But maybe that's what it took for her to realize what she was missing? Plus they had their sort of "reconnect" a couple of episodes before so...ahhh, I'm torn.

I'm glad Hadie gets to go to the college she wanted.

I feel bad for Zooey. Giving up your child must be so hard. I can hardly imagine. Did they ever talk about an open adoption? Maybe then she could give her baby the watch herself.
Amber is either 18 or just turned 19. Not sure how old he is.
Well, he could very well be younger-- 25ish-- but I still think it's bound to cause problems. Hopefully this will be a turning point for her. I love her character, but she doesn't always make great romantic decisions. I really look forward to seeing how she deals with this.

Stolen.
Not being able to afford the ivy league school your kid just got accepted to, ugh. Dagger!!! That was just painful, for both parents and Haddie. Got husband and I talking about what we would do for our boys. It's tough!

And what the heck is jasmine thinking?!?Double date? Have new GF get me tickets?!? What?! I like jasmine but that's just crazy!!

The dynamic between Sarah and Drew kills me. My kids are in preschool but it saddens me to think it'll be like that some day.

i think the guy can be a positive influence on amber but not if he tries to date her. he's a young and up and coming guy. probably not 30. maybe closer to 25/26. i don't know though, he was driving a volvo, not something a young guy drives. i hope his influence causes her to focus on college and longer term aspirations. interesting that she turned down his dinner offer. i was surprised she did that. he does seem to really value her. this job has been great for her esteem. hmm...what will happen?

drew will really pull away if sarah has a baby with her boyfriend but i hope she will after they had that talk. i like him, he's a nice guy!

jasmine was wrong for pushing up on crosby's date. i wish crosby had just said he didn't feel comfortabledoing a double date or asking his new friend to get tickets. dr. joe saw her feeling bummed that jabari was smitten by crosby's "friend". the girl seems nice. i'd like to see her stick around just as much as dr. joe. all these extra partners are just real life.

i think with the adoption, it would be hard to have a close open adoption, where they sort of jointly raise the kid. i mean maybe she could see the kid at some point later but it might be harder for all involved. most likely the kid will want to meet his real mom though. that's a tricky one though. i wonder if the girl will change her mind at the very last minute. tricky.

as far as hadie, if your parents really can't afford to send you to a school i feel that should be considered. i don't have kids yet but i'm sort of on the fence about kids expecting parents to take out loans or make other huge sacrifices to send them to expensive out of state or private schools. state schools can also provide a wonderful education and parents can help but maybe the kids should have to get the loan or financial aid. i don't know what the right answer is.

so are the parents going to play a lesser role next season while they travel the country?

This week's episode was so good! Looks like Jasmine isn't so sure about moving in with Dr. Joe and may be dragging her feet hoping Crosby will say something. I'M hoping Crosby will say something!!

I like Amber and Bob! It is kind of scandalous but he's sweet and she's really growing up. She should get back in school, quit her job and then officially date him. I know the job is a good opportunity but it is derailing her from school.

Sarah is in a tough spot but I don't understand why she's pushing to have a baby with him. She already has kids so its not like this is her only opportunity. Shouldn't he be the one? I think I would just enjoy my younger boyfriend with no babies or toddlers around!!! I'd go to morocco!!

I don't understand the whole baby thing either with Sarah...why push the baby when they haven't talked of marriage or anything else longterm?

I love the whole Jasmine/Crosby thing.....I kind of hope they don't get back together...like the dynamics with everything.

I don't understand the having to pay for an ivy league school....say this is the money we can afford...get a scholarship or loans to pay the rest. We'll help you where we can? I know she deserves it but their are state schools that are just as good...

I like the Amber/Bob thing...although I hope this is the push she needs to get a college education. I'm hoping it doesn't blow up in her face..if she does let the relationship go forward... The press can be evil... I like how she is handling it though

Love! Love! This show!!

re: the baby thing, sarah's guy was the one that blurted out that he wanted a baby first. so then she thought about and was on board. they re-discussed and he said it's what he wants. i think she's bringing it up because men don't always understand women's delicate fertility window, challenges, etc. i totally get what she's saying, if they want to have a baby the window is really narrow with her being 40 right now so even if they are fine with marrying later (for whatever reason), having a kid later might not be an option and yes she has kids but he does not and he said he wants them so i think it was good of her to just say it. if he'd said "i'm not ready right now, i want to do xyz first" then she could have backed off. he said he was ready, i think he is i mean sure those high school buddies got to recalling the "good ole days" but he genuinely seems to enjoy his life now with sarah. looks like from the preview she might be preggie!!!

i really don't know what to think about jasmine/crosby. they both seem to have pulled back because the other seems to "want the best for them" and they think that means not being together. i like dr. joe, nothing really bad to say about him and he's fine as hell but i was sort of put off him asking jasmine to "move in" rather than marry. if you're so sure, marry me! i mean it's not like it's just her, it's jabar too. he deserves a real commitment not just a new address. what do you girls think of that?

oh boy on amber and bob. i totally think he's sincere and i think she's smitten but it's an unequal relationship. it's never a good idea to date your boss even if you're both educated and around the same age. he's ambitious, if the ish hits the fan, i am certain he will chose his career and image over amber, at least publicly. she really can't win in this situation and i wish she were close enough to someone to tell her to 1) go to school and 2) do you job and don't date your boss. it seems her aunt (terrible with the names) will intervene on this since she's been tipped off.

Amber should have learned that from her mother. Remember when Sarah was dating Baldwin's character?
Another great week!! I still don't get Sarah pushing for the baby when they don't even live together. I totally get that her clock is ticking but he mentioned it once, casually and she took it and ran. Now they both talk about it and seems like they're working on it but she's driving it and there's no solid commitment -- living together, engagement, him being around her kids etc. I dunno, seems all backwards to me but that's how a lot of things go in life. We don't always make the best decisions. Very realistic which is why I like the show so much.

Amber!!!!! What the h*ll?!? Big trouble. I like the guy. I like the flirtatiousness but now it seems dirty.

Luvmylocs, did you see previews? Jasmine professes her love for Crosby!!! Can't wait to see what happens there.

Max usually drives me nuts. He's so good at that part but he had me crying and boohooing with his new friend. So sweet. The parents killed me. Having kids has made me such a softie!!

I really liked the last Max scene where the other family came over and the parents were so happy that their child had a friend (and of course Adam and Kristina were just as happy!). It was really sweet and I'm happy for Max. I can't imagine how awful it would be to feel like complete outcast especially at that age.

The mysterious ages of Amber and Bob Little have been revealed! Christina screamed that she is 19 and he is 28.

I feel sorry for Drew.


I think next week will be a great episode! I wonder were Zooey is...I hope she didn't run off with the baby! Or die in childbirth! Ahhhh, the possibilities.

you're right, sarah and her guy....life is messy. ex and drew are bummed about her wanting a baby. wow...

i agree, the thing with amber and bob...even though they are both adults, it just feels wrong and unbalanced. her aunt busting in on her was a bit embarrassing but it was probably needed.

jasmine/crosby....WOWSERS!!! why do i feel like crosby is going to reject her?! the dr. is so damn fine but she still loves quirky crosby. i wonder if she's thinking through what life as a family with him would be like again. could it work? what about his new love? is she just jealous? they can't keep going back and forth for jabar's sake. i can't wait!! i'll be out of town next week and having business dinners but i hope i can see this!

max, yes sweet and even the parents got to see they are not alone and other parents feel having a kid with special needs.

zooey probably ran off with her baby. that girl is unstable. she will probably end up leaving the baby on their doorstep as a season cliffhanger. she can't really take care of him and i'm beginning to question her mental state but of course she feels connected to the child growing inside her. hmm, maybe the baby will die at birth or something really tragic though. of course she'll feel guilty even if its not her fault. how many more episodes?

I read on Eonline that there are only 2 episodes left and they will be packed with drama. Two big things happen, one happy and one tragic. Said to get tissues ready. My guess is the happy is Crosby and Jasmine get back together and the sad has to do with Julia and the baby. I guess we'll see. Can't wait!!
