One Step Forward, Two Steps Back



I seriously don't get why two grown men are fighting over Sarah. Yup....her. Why? Why? Why? Is it some weird neurosis that is telling them that SHE is the be all end all of womanhood? There is no reason on Earth why anyone in reality should pursue a woman like that, and yet it happens everyday. Are men that fearful of dying alone that they are willing to settle for someone that doesn't know what the f*ck is going on? I know this is just a show, but it does point out common themes that exist in real life and seeing these two pine after her is really sad and pathetic.

Okay, with that out of the way, time to dive into something that really irked me and that was Jasmine more or less sandbagging Crosby because she doesn't have the balls to stand up to her mother. Why would you hang him out like that and then to make matters worst, turn around and side with her when you don't even agree with the way she is running the house and criticizing what Jabbar eats. Not cool, not cool at all.

This was really Crosby's episode and I shouldn't have been shocked that he would be him and him alone that actually talked some sense into Julia about not giving up on Victor. I still don't like the character, but that's beside the point. I did like the scene that Crosby and Julia had. It was cool to see him step up and give out some advice that actually had merit.

As I mentioned before, I was in Crosby's position with my Ex. First, I was 4th in line to her listening, let alone supporting me (right behind, her Dad, her daughter, God, then me). So standing up to her parents she would not even entertain. Priorities when married where out of whack. I've seen it and get what is happening with Crosby and Jasmine. My case it did not work. I wonder what will happen to them.

Because You're My Sister



That's what you call reaping what you sow, Sarah! You're indecisiveness caused you to end up alone. I'm not surprised this is how they decided to end the Season with her cutting ties with Mark and choosing Hank over him and then having Hank bail on the relationship. How'd that work out for ya missy? I just hope that they do something better with her character next year like becoming a librarian and all she does is file books away. I don't think I can sit through another season watching her make poor decisions, one after the other again.

I liked the adoption with the entire family in spite of not really liking Victor. I thought the way that Crosby apologized was a pretty good one to bring up the news that he and Jasmine are pregnant again. When did they ever have time to get it on with Jasmine's mother constantly up in their business? Zing!!

Solid, if not perfect finale. And speaking of finale's....what the hell?! What's up with this 15 episode season? Where are the last 7 episodes? Why is this a shortened season? That can only mean one thing, NBC has zero faith in the show and this is a precursor to the show getting cancelled. The only thing working in favor of the series coming back is that they need 5 seasons or more for syndication deals. So, I do see this coming back but I think it's only going to be for 13 episodes...definitely not 22 and 15 would be lucky.

Huh, interesting you bring that up about the last show… WTF
So I’m trying to place my finger on it, but I find myself less and less interested what’s going on in Parenthood. I’m not sure if it’s because things tend to be too polished and put a ribbon on the various story lines or that I can fairly well predict what will happen next.

Last night’s episode should have been labeled F ucked-up Relationships. Both the obvious relationships and some of the bubbling under relationships. Some relationships turned out well Like Julia and Victor. I still don’t understand what happened there. Julia’s sudden change? Because of that brief moment outside the restaurant with her brother Crosby? While sweet… I think unrealistic. That is definitely a head turner… and then Victor I’m part of the family attitude? I don’t think so. But that was wrapped up nicely, don’t you think. Crosby and Jasmine worked things out nicely… but because of the baby news? Jasmine needs to start being herself and stand tall with Crosby, especially if she feels like he does and not undermine Crosby. Crosby needs to relax. The mom living there with her opinions were not that bad.

Boy Sarah, kicked Mark square in the balls… twice in one minute. Again, I saw all that coming despite it making zero sense. Go with Hank… Wait, Hank has other plans. Join Hank? Ya, right!

Phuck Drew and good riddance… he could not go away fast enough to college. More lameness to anything the boy does including saying goodbye to old flame.

Honestly I don’t know how Adam does it. He by far, has to deal with a host of personalities, that make the average guy say phuck it. I do not mean to ground Kristina’s issues by any means, but Adam does have to deal with her emotions… along with the rest of his family and immediate family.
But like I said, I’m on the fence about continuing to watch the show. Not like there is a bunch of other shows on at that time, but for the first time after it was over, I thought I wasted my time.

Well, I believe it will be coming back for one last season. It was actually on the bubble of being cancelled after Season 3 wrapped. So, when it does come back it will be for 10-12 episodes tops. Might as well see it all the way to the end.
