Parenthood is a heartfelt and emotional drama that originally aired on NBC from 2010 to 2015. The show revolves around the Braverman family, a multigenerational clan living in Berkeley, California. At the center of the family is patriarch Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) and his wife Camille (Bonnie Bedelia), who have four adult children - Adam (Peter Krause), Sarah (Lauren Graham), Crosby (Dax Shepard), and Julia (Erika Christensen) - each with their own families and personal struggles.

Adam is married to Kristina (Monica Potter) and they have two children, Haddie (Sarah Ramos) and Max (Max Burkholder), who has Asperger's syndrome. Sarah is a single mother to two teenagers, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew (Miles Heizer), while Crosby has a son named Jabbar (Tyree Brown) with his ex-girlfriend Jasmine (Joy Bryant). Julia is a successful lawyer and mother to Sydney (Savannah Paige Rae), but struggles to balance her career with her family life.

Throughout the series, the Bravermans face a variety of challenges and obstacles, from financial issues to health problems to relationship struggles. Parenthood explores universal themes of love, loss, family dynamics, and personal growth, making it a relatable and emotionally resonant show for audiences of all ages.

The ensemble cast is outstanding, with stand-out performances from Peter Krause as the responsible and devoted Adam, Lauren Graham as the free-spirited and independent Sarah, and Dax Shepard as the charming yet sometimes irresponsible Crosby. Monica Potter also shines as Kristina, as she battles breast cancer and navigates the ups and downs of marriage and motherhood.

One of the standout aspects of Parenthood is the authentic depiction of family life - the show's writers and producers have created a world that feels fully realized and lived-in, and the characters' interactions and conversations feel natural and real. The show also tackles important social issues, including autism, adoption, and fertility struggles, with sensitivity and nuance.

Parenthood is a show that will tug at your heartstrings and make you laugh and cry in equal measure. Its themes of love, family, and the complexities of modern life are universal and relatable, and the Braverman family will feel like your own before you know it.

Parenthood is a series that is currently running and has 6 seasons (103 episodes). The series first aired on March 2, 2010.
