So the big storyline so far on “Parenthood” seems to be Christina’s cancer. She has just been recently diagnosed with breast cancer. As of yet we don’t know what stage, or how far it’s spread. Adam told Amber about it, only because he was going to need her help a lot in the next few weeks/months, and she was wondering why he was treating her as more of an errand/servant as of late. Something tells me this story is going to serve to bring Haddie home from college. She’ll probably transfer to a local college, or simply take time off from school to help her mom and family.
Max has started to become as annoying as his sister Haddie in my opinion. I get his Asperger’s is always going to be a big part of the show, and that they are portraying it very realistically . . . but sometimes I’d rather see other storylines for a change. With Haddie now gone (maybe?), I worry he will dominate the storylines for a lot of the season. His constant fixation on the candy machine at school this week, the loss of a friend, and now his wanting to run for President is going to probably try my patience. Actually this whole show often does, and sometimes I wonder why I continue with it at times. Oh yeah, nice eye candy to look at!
I loved the storyline with Julia standing by in the parking lot all day while Victor went into school. It was so sweet! However something will end up derailing this family. I’m gunna guess that once Victor finally feels settled and secure, Julia will miraculously get pregnant now that she and Joel aren’t so fixated on that anymore. With a new baby, Victor may feel like he won’t count as much. Frankly I really want to see Julia and Joel to get more of a front burner storyline for a change. Last season they had one, but it involved that awful coffee girl and we knew it was going to end badly from the beginning.
I’m still not feeling Sarah and her new boss that much yet. My main issue is unlike much of America, I never loved Raymond . . . . So I’m having a hard time warming up to wherever this storyline is going.
In the latest episode Zeke faced some issues with his unrenewed drivers license and being arrested while the grandkids were in the car. Crosby had to finally tell his siblings that there dad has some heart issues, which we still have never learned the whole story about. We didn’t this week either. However I think the fact that they brought it up probably means bad news at some point this season for Zeke. I could see Christina winning her health battle, but Zeke being up in the air by the end of the season.
