I’ve blogged quite a bit about so many TV shows and movies already, all of them being important to me in different ways. But, there is one television show that I have yet to talk about… it is of course not any less important to me, though. A former friend of mine introduced me to
Parenthood, and I then kept watching it on my own, and eventually re-watched it with Gen. Even better the second time around, I think! There was something so beautiful about this show, it allowed you to watch a huge family go through their life, all the ups and downs of it. The way they portray all their story-lines is so unique, I feel like they do it all very sensitively. A really good job was done with showing all the emotions the characters go through. I can’t (AKA don’t want to) tell you how many times this show made me cry! For example, their entire story-line with Max was incredibly well done. Showing a family cope with an autistic child is not at all easy, so what they did is a huge success. They way they were able to show how the entire family was effected was very respectful and sensitive. Along with this, all of the unique characters and their relationships were all very touching.
When the show ended about two years ago, it was really hard to say goodbye to these “new friends” of mine. I know that this is not yet anywhere close to being a certain thing, but I was so happy when I read that the creator of this show, Jason Katims, has thought about the possibility of a REBOOT. This news seriously made my day, because being able to see more of this family’s journey would be really awesome. Then, to top off this huge piece of good news, I also saw that Lauren Graham would be into the idea too. Lauren Graham is someone I am a huge fan of, so having her be a part of a reboot would be very cool. I fell in love with Graham when I saw her in Gilmore Girls… her and Alexis Bledel were a great duo in that show. Seeing her in another role made me happy, and Mae Whitman (who played her daughter Amber) was a great match with her too. In fact, all the actors/characters in the show blew me away. Really really hope there will be a reboot! 🙂
