Life was better for some Bravermans than others this week, and while it was definitely more upbeat than the last episode, there's still no happy dance party at the end.
Jasmine wakes up next to Crosby, realizing her mom will be there with Jabbar. She proceeds to act like a child instead of a grown-a– woman who spent the night with the father of her child.
So, she forces him to get up and run, while he's trying to discuss the situation. At least she didn’t make him go out the window.
As much as I like to joke about Braverman family get-togethers and dance parties, this episode could have used one. There was very little comedy going on in last night's episode, and many members of the Braverman clan needed a good laugh.
You know how I’ve been saying this whole "adopting the baby from the office coffee girl" thing isn’t going to go well? The other shoe's about to drop.
We begin with Joel, Julia and Zoe waiting at breakfast for the baby's father to show up. He blows them off, supposedly because he got called into work.
This week there was no mention of Seth (thankfully) and we were spared Crosby-Jasmine-Dr. Joe drama as "Parenthood" focused a bit more on parenting issues.
Sarah opened the mail to find Drew got a D in math, which has never happened. When she goes to talk to him about it, she finds him in his room with Amy. She thinks the fact he has a girlfriend is the only change that explains his grade dropping, and she forbids him from seeing Amy during the week.
Because, you know, he couldn't possibly be having problems because his wayward drunk of a father drifted back into his life, went through rehab, and left town again.
I think the title of this week's "Parenthood" - "In Between" - must mean some of these people are in between a rock and a hard place, either at work or at home. Let's start with Adam, who is, or will be, up against it at home because of work.
Crosby and Adam are still trying to find a receptionist/assistant for the studio. They interview some sketchy characters, including one who probably couldn’t find his way home.
The one person who doesn’t seem crazy and actually knows about music is young and very cute. Adam seems reluctant to hire her, claiming he didn’t notice she’s hot. Crosby says perhaps Adam is scared about Kristina objecting. As well he should be!
The title of this week's episode of "Parenthood" is "Forced Family Fun," but they very well could have stopped at "Forced Family." I'm not sure anyone had any fun.
That's not to say Kristina didn't try. She made chocolate chip pancakes for a special “we can take the baby out of the house” breakfast, which everyone but the baby bailed on. You could feel the epic Kristina meltdown getting closer every minute.
And after they piled into the car to go to mini golf, there it was: Mini-Van Maxi Meltdown!
In this week's episode of "Parenthood," Max was having a hard time dealing with his punishment for fighting with Jabbar.
He has to spend a week on lunch detention, which means he's supposed to eat in a classroom away from the other students. Kristina gets permission to have a family member sit with him, and she asks Amber. This is both to help him work on the apology he has to write and so he has someone to make him feel comfortable.
In reality, it's Amber's who needs someone to make her feel comfortable.
