Parenthood Thoughts and November Spoilers

Parenthood Thoughts and November Spoilers

Posted by Dustin on 10.27.2010 at 8:00 pm

So it’s been awhile since I blogged about “Parenthood.” I still watch and still love it, though some of the characters I just want to scream at. Some quick thoughts, followed by the spoilers for the next new episode (in two weeks).

I loved the Halloween episode with Max taking to Trick-Or-Treating, even though his mom worried he wouldn’t and she herself hated the holiday. Boo to her!

Julia and Joel have been aggravating me. I felt she was making great strides in treating Joel like an equal partner and saying she’s respect his need to work as well and not be the house mom to their next kid . . . . then this week’s episode happened and she was basically back to square one. Joel finally got a chance to do a small private job, and when she was needed to deal with their kid, she just couldn’t handle it. In the end her true feelings came out when she blurted out something along the lines of “I am charging 600 dollars an hour to a client, I can’t watch the kid so you can grout some guys tub.” OUCH! Start slipping her some birth control on the side Joel, otherwise you’re gunna be raising this next kid with no help from mom! In a way though, it’s great that they’ve completely turned the gender roles around here. (Mental note to self, use this as a lecture example in class next week).

I’m so happy that Crosby and Jasmine are tying the knot. From the previews, I feared she might say no! However it was Jabar who was basically not all that impressed. Crosby’s family was happy . . . no word yet on how Jasmine’s family will take the news. I am hoping Renee will support it . . . in a previous show she basically told Crosby he should get married to Jasmine . . . actually I kinda felt what she was saying was “Your the man, control that woman, she should be home with her kid and not running across Europe dancing!”

Haddie has a part time job at a homeless shelter, where she seems to be falling for one of the employees. However based on the spoilers below, it seems like he has a secret. Amber joked at the end of the most recent episode “Are you falling for a homeless person?” Is that what is going on?

Sarah has been having an interesting love affair with her boss Gordon. However much like Julia, Gordon is a “stress and rage inducing character.” At times he’s great, for example dealing with Amber’s drunk partygirl friend. Other times he’s just a jerk, like having Adam fire his employees for him. It will be interesting to see where things go for them. It’s too bad “The Event” is sticking around NBC, because I liked Amber’s teacher and Sarah together (Jason Ritter stars on that show now).

Amber’s one and only friend, Haddie the drunk party girl, is now estranged from Amber. Sarah told Haddie’s mom what happened on Halloween, and of course it had to be bad Amber’s influence, and her rich perfect daughter would never ever act like that! Something tells me Haddie is going to end up in the ER shortly having her stomach pumped and mom will come to a shocking realization. That or both Haddie and Amber will end up in jail.

Read on for spoilers for the next show!
