Drew best get a personality.

Adam's final argument was precision. How could they not drop it. Especially the whole, uh, there were plenty of underage kids drinking.

I was very disappointed in Amber cracking and calling for mommy because of rat. I was hoping her independence to hold strong. But no, they need to keep the umbilical cord attached.

I did catch that remark about the underage drinking and that may have been the deciding factor for them to dropping the lawsuit. If Parents are so quick to condemn other kids, then they better hope their own kids are squeaky clean. And that's impossible. Kids make mistakes.

My son who watches this too, had problems with this. He didn't understand at all how this became a big deal. I told him, it probably happens more than you think. This was not unusual parent would react like that.

Clear Skies From Here On Out



Ouch. Drew just got c*cked blocked by his Sister. But then again, his shyness is incredibly hard to sit through. I've been there a couple of times. We all have. That uncomfortable silence that seems to derail a lot of potential. And true to form, all it takes is just one thing to break through, even if it's unintentional as in the case of the pic of his Mom and Mr. Cyr making out in the parking lot and the rest falls into place. So, I was happy in seeing Amy make the next move and go to see Drew at night and invite him out for a walk. Very cool.

We are only 4 episodes into the new season, but dare I say it. I think they will be hard pressed to top this episode for the rest of the season. Clear Skies hit on so many emotions while watching it that I felt like I was on a Roller Coaster ride. From Jabbar being forced to eat lunch with Max at the expense of withdrawing from his own friends to the ensuing fight between the two and the confrontation between Crosby and Adam was definitely a "Rock and a Hard place". The corker for me of course was first watching Alex break up with Haddie, and then having to say goodbye to Kristina (Haddie's Mom) and watching him break down like that. He knew he didn't just lose a girlfriend, but an entire family. Heartbreaking. I guess now that they have gone their separate ways, Michael B. Jordan (Alex) will no longer be on the show as I don't see them writing his character to just hang around. Sucks if he is in fact gone.

This episode was so good that even Zeek and Camille got to shine in their little scenes together.

Definitely some major emotional scenario’s going on, but as you say, very real and something we can relate too. Crosby got screwed with regards to how everybody is blaming him for what happened. I will say, he said to much (and maybe the wrong way) to Jabbar about Max’s problems, but then again, it is true. To make Crosby the scapegoat is too easy for everybody.

I think it will get better. Last night’s episode was kind of a gate to open up all the new things that are on the horizon. Drew’s changes, Crosby and Adams new future, the birth next week, Sarah and Mr. Cyr. Oh, it’s gonna get even better.

I think Zeek is becoming my favorite character. He has changed so much and become true role model. At least for me. Everybody else is just **** crazy  ;D

I guess that's probably due to the Crosby/Adam recording studio?

Nora





Adam D.M.C. ftw!!


I spoke too soon. THIS is the best episode of the season...until next week of course. I went through another emotional roller coaster. So much stuff went down. Good. Bad. Ugly. And it was all AWESOME!! Some very unique pairings that we have never really seen before. Amber and Max. Crosby and Kristina. Julie and Zoe. And of course Adam and Mistah R.A.Y. With these hookups, they gave us some incredible scenes. Just wow.



I thought it was kinda selfish in a way to just dump Max onto Amber like that and then kind of insult her in the process by saying she was a "last resort". But out of this, Amber was able to do something that no one really has been able to do since Gaby left, and that was to get through to him and teach him empathy. Crosby and Kristina had a knock-down, drag out shouting match that was a loooooooooong time coming and it was INTENSE! And out of this mess comes an amazing scene that they will now be connected in a way they didn't see coming when he helped her through giving birth to Nora. When Julie invited Zoe into her home to stay the night, the writing was on the wall that she would see what an amazing family they had and would eventually tell them she wanted them to raise her baby. Mission accomplished. And then there is Adam trying to whoooo  Mistah R.A.Y. and convince him to record at the Lunchonette. Adam's honesty about how he felt about R.A.Y.'s music, curse words and all is probably the key that gets them the contract. I thought this was such a cool moment not only for Adam, but for the show as well.

The ending was powerful without even having to really say anything when Sarah just shows up to rescue her Ex-Husband played by John Corbett, reprising his role from last season. Her just...being there, says a lot. So much so, it more or less puts her relationship with Mr. Cyr in jeopardy. I need to watch this episode again before the week is over.

In my rave of Nora yesterday, I had completely forgot to mention Aloma Wright's appearance as the Nurse who oversees the baby's delivery. For those that don't recognize the name, she played Nurse Laverne Roberts on Scrubs. It was so cool to see her pop up on the episode, more or less "in-character", like she never left for the great beyond. This was definitely the most unexpected, surprised guest-staring role to come across in a while for me.

Cee Lo’s part in Parenthood was cool, timely, and fit in nicely with the story telling. His soulful rendition of Janis Joplin’s Piece of My heart was decent, it was not great.

I still cannot get use to, what appears as an increase in, conversations overlapping each other. We typically watched Sarah and Amber have conversations this way. What a chaotic mess. Now we are seeing it more with the other family members. Just one of my small gripes about the show.

I did not understand Crosby’s dragging his feet getting the studio rocking and rolling. Was he put off by Adams enthusiasm or even his part in the studio activities?

I also don’t understand Sarah’s reverse thinking about helping her ex-husband Seth. I’m with Zeek on this one. He has been given chances. What makes today any different. I’m all about forgiveness, but what we have not seen are all those years and times Seth let the family disintegrate. Time to move on. But Sarah seems to consistently make bad decisions despite good intentions.  Mark is pretty smart and with-it kinda guy. He’d be stupid not to see the writing on the wall and move on.
