If you were to tell me that I would enjoy an hour long family drama TV show, I'd probably laugh at you. Imagine my surprise then when I enjoyed Parenthood so much! The all-star cast shines even brighter because of the excellent dialogue. There are real-life conflicts as plot lines, but without the melodrama and sensationalism that distances so many shows from their audiences. Within only 13 episodes, I bonded with these characters and was moved to tears with joy during the final episode. With hilarious dialogue and memorable characters, this is a show that I would recommend to anyone!
