Parenthood Thoughts: Crosby And Joel Grow Pairs

Parenthood Thoughts: Crosby And Joel Grow Pairs

I really liked the latest “Parenthood” because two of my favorite characters stood up to those around them that were beating them down.

First, Crosby finally put Renee in her place, reminding her not only was he Jabar’s father, but it was unfair of her to punish him for the relationship she had with her own kid’s father. Loved it, and loved that Renee realized he was right. Crosby might not be a dad on the level of Adam or Joel in terms of responsibility, but he has stepped up when others wouldn’t have.

I also loved that Joel finally told off Julia for making decisions about their family and their future without respecting or asking for his input, especially when it would impact him the most. I loved when he said she’d have 9 months and maybe 2 months maternity leave, but then she’d be back to her amazing job and he’d be the one taking care of the kid on a day to day basis. He made her agree that she would have to give a little more this time should they have a second kid, which she agreed to do, and he agreed to go for kid number two.

The story with Sarah and her daughter and the rich friend was cute, but I really liked her relationship with Kevin Alejandro (Jesus gets around!). It should be very interesting given Adam’s boss (and now Sarah’s) also likes her.

I am hoping Adam’s story gets a little more interesting. The mom obsessing over Max and Hattie is getting on my every last nerves.

  2. Not sure, he’s clearly on next week, but they’ve been billing the Baldwin as her major love interest for the season.

  3. I loved this episode for the same reasons. I’ve been especially glad to see the way they’ve been developing Joel’s character more; I like where they’re going. It’ll be interesting to see if Julia holds up her end of the bargain. I see that being a real struggle for her.

    And hurray for Crosby as a father I say!

    I find Hattie especially annoying. But then, she’s a teenager. She’s supposed to be. *G*
