I'm a big fan of the show, but it can get a bit cheesey at times. Don't get me wrong--I think it does an excellent job of highlighting different family dynamics in general. I study a lot of psychology and sociology in school, so I pick up on a lot of things that the casual watcher may or may not. They're entitled to their dramatic license, of course. I really like Craig T. Nelson in the show, especially now that he's kind of losing it (which isn't really supposed to be funny, but I think it makes things interesting). I wish Adam would be more patient at times, but then I know he's under a lot of stress too. The characters are a bit exaggerated--but hey, that's what makes them interesting.

The spoilers for next week are quite interesting, too.

I can't believe that Amber actually broke up with her boyfriend. I could've sworn that she would've been hanging all over him and trying to 'fix' him. She showed so much strength by walking away, even though it obviously hurt her.

I love this show . I missed a couple of episode's last season. I cant wait till the new season starts I hear Ray Ramano will be making a couple of appearances. I love how you can relate to certain topics in this show.

I really like this show. I've always liked the family dramas like Brothers and Sisters etc It can get a bit cheesy at times but I think that's its charm

I like Parenthood a lot. It is wonderful to see the closeness of the Braverman family. I'm definitely looking forward to the new season.

No, I haven't even heard of it! Who is in it? What channel does it air on? It sounds like it could be very interesting. Does it get too heavy or do they keep it light even when it's serious?
While I haven't actually seen the show, I am curious to watch it because it has the mother from Gilmore Girls in it. I sometimes pick up new shows because they have a beloved actor from another show in them. I know this show was nominated for a Network Television award along with Grey's Anatomy. Parenthood may have one, I cannot recall. It seems like a very beloved show, and I think it is on Netflix

I didn't watch when it first came out because the commercials for it where so boring. I started watching it last year on Netflix when I ran out of other stuff to watch, and once I got past the first few episodes, I fell in love with. I love the family dynamic, four 30 or 40 something siblings, with kids of their own, and their parents. I like that the family seems real, they have problems, they fight among themselves, but they always come together. I'm just sad that now that I've gotten into it, this is the last season. I hate to see it go, I think there's still a lot they could explore. Oh well.

Just watched the series finale. Boo! I hate to see it go. I've really gotten invested in the Braverman's and their lives. However, I have to say, they did a really good job of finishing the series. I was sad to see Zeke die, but we knew it was coming. I really like the way they wrapped up each of the characters lives, and showed them at different points in the future. We see that there will be a new generation, and that they are all doing well. They will stay a loving - sometimes fighting - family. It was well done.

I have to give them props for the finale, too. They did right by it by finishing up several of the story lines and show how they will move forward with their lives. I don't feel cheated by any crazy twists. They really did it as a "they live happily ever ever" ending...but also kept it realistic that lots of twists were still to come for them down the road.
