Product Description

All 13 episodes from the first season of the US comedy following the lives of four siblings as they try to navigate the ups and downs of parenthood. Zeek and Camille Braverman (Craig T. Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia) have four grown children; single mother Sarah (Lauren Graham) is moving back to her parents with her two children, Amber and Drew (Mae Whitman and Miles Heizer); corporate attorney Julia (Erika Christensen) is trying to keep things afloat while her husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger), stays at home; Crosby (Dax Shepard) is finally having to face up to adult responsibility; whilst eldest son Adam (Peter Krause) and wife Kristina (Monica Potter) discover that their oddball son, Max (Max Burkholder), has Asperger's Syndrome. Episodes comprise: 'Pilot', 'Man vs. Possum', 'The Deep End of the Pool', 'Wassup', 'The Situation', 'The Big 'O', 'What's Goin' On Down There?', 'Rubber Band Ball', 'Perchance to Dream', 'Namaste No More', 'Solace', 'Team Braverman' and 'Lost and Found'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Created by Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights), NBC's Parenthood arrives with a roster of familiar names, including producer Ron Howard, who directed the original comedy. In the pilot, Adam Braverman (Peter Krause, Six Feet Under) learns that his son, Max (Max Burkholder), may have Asperger's syndrome; his brother, Crosby (Dax Shepard), finds out he's a father; and Sarah (Lauren Graham, Gilmore Girls) moves back to Berkeley with her kids, Drew (Miles Heizer) and Amber (Mae Whitman, Arrested Development). That leaves their sister, Julia (Erika Christensen), who struggles to balance motherhood with a career.

Until she finds a place of her own, the divorced Sarah lives with parents Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) and Camille (Bonnie Bedelia), who aren't as happy as she thought. She also reconnects with an old high-school boyfriend (Glee's Mike O'Malley) and considers a relationship with Amber's English teacher (Joan of Arcadia's Jason Ritter), while Crosby gets to know his son with Jasmine (Joy Bryant), a former flame. Adam's 15-year-old daughter, Haddie (Sarah Ramos), also starts dating, which causes her father and mother, Kristina (Monica Potter), no end of stress.

The cozy California setup--including overlapping dialogue--recalls Brothers and Sisters, except Parenthood moves at a more relaxed pace. The entire ensemble is strong, even Shepard, an actor best known for comedies, like Idiocracy. In their commentary on the first episode, Katims and director Thomas Schlamme say they shot the pilot with Maura Tierney, who had to drop out due to health reasons (they re-shot after Graham joined the cast). If Parenthood is rarely as funny as the 1989 movie, it becomes more emotionally involving as these 13 episodes unfold (a benefit of long-form storytelling). Interestingly, it's the second series to spin off the film--the 1990 version met with cancellation. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I bought the DVDs for the 1st series as it has not aired in the UK. Loved the Gilmore Girls but parenthood is just as good, if not better. All the characters are interesting,the actors are all excellent and the show is a realistic view of family life. Serious and fun at the same time. One of the best US series, just wish it were available on TV in the UK. Worth buying and will definitely buy season 2 (and 3 once released). Hope it wins some awards for the actors involved if it has not already done so.

This is an incredible show with a super-talented cast! Great writing and brilliant acting! Bring on season 3 because 1 and 2 were awesome!! And as always, Lauren Graham is the star of the show! Love it!! It's also very easy to relate to the characters and the storylines because it all seems so natural!

I was a huge Brothers and Sisters fan and was sad when it ended. Found this series through Amazon recommendations and am glad I bought it. The show revolves more around the siblings, all of them parents themselves, with some reference to the grandparents. The couples really steal this show and their kids and the situations they get into are both funny and realistic. The show also deals with autism in a sensitive and thought provoking way.

By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Sept. 2012

Three generations of California's Bravermans, this gentle series far removed from those bloated soapy family sagas where characters reel from one contrived crisis to another. Here feet are far more firmly on the ground - money more modest, storylines more plausible.

Admittedly there are some major concerns - excitable, obsessive little Max diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome; his uncle Crosby suddenly learning he has a five year old son (both themes developed sensitively). Mostly, though, situations are more commonplace, many with which viewers can identify - teenagers "going through a phase", a young daughter being coaxed how to swim, a lad encouraged to develop his baseball skills. Enjoy the sight of Braverman males struggling to bring a piano down from the attic!

The scripts have heart, emphasis on character rather than contrivance. Also with warmth is the fine cast headed by Peter Strause's stalwart Adam, he forever helping others negotiate life's challenges.

Throughout there are chuckles and much to like. Parenthood everywhere is a bumpy ride - little dramas (often more amusing in retrospect than at the time), misunderstandings, rows, reconciliations. Many will welcome a series which dwells, without mawkishness, on the positive side.

(13 episodes. Modest extras, mainly deleted scenes and a brief background feature. The Pilot has a most moving commentary. Well into filming, the actress playing Sarah learned she had breast cancer. The tragic news meant an urgent replacement and much re-shooting. Soon devastated colleagues learned she had died. The episode is dedicated to her memory.)

I bought this series at an amazing cost of £4.75, had no particular expectations, and I recognised some of the cast names and Ron Howard's (he directed the very funny film version of the Steve Martin film of the same name - highly recommended!).

I have to say that I really, really, enjoyed this DVD set, which hooked me every night, forcing me to watch the next episode. It's more serious than the film, though still genuinely funny - the humour is in the situations, and the interractions, rather than jokes or one-liners; it tackles issues those familiar with bringing up children will be aware of - sex, drugs, relationships, misunderstandings etc, and the ensemble playing is brilliant.

I only wish Series 2 and 3 were available over here, to buy at a reasonable price.

Format: DVD
Parenthood whilst based on the film starring steve martin is actually nothing remotely like it. Its not a comedy but a very serious drama that deals with very serious issues.

Craig T Nelson is fab as Zeke, old family patriarch and the very lovely Bonnie Bedelia plays his long suffering wife. Together they have 4 children, Adam, Sarah, Julia and Crosby. They also have 6 grandchildren, Amber, Drew, Haddie, Max, Sydney and Jabar.

There are great actors playing the other parts, Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Monica Potter (who i still reckon looks like julia roberts), Erika Christensen, Dax Shephard who is best known for his roles on Punk'd and yet manages to pull off serious acting quite spectacularly, Mae Whitman i think is the stand out actor on this show for me, her role as troubled and tormented teen Amber really does break your heart.

There are recurring guest appearances from Jason Ritter, William Baldwin, Minka Kelly, John Corbett who all deliver great performances.

This isnt your stereotypical family drama where everyone is perfect and nothing ever goes wrong, you see divorces, abuse, separation, dealing with teenagers, a young member diagnosed with asperbergers syndrome and the effects it has on the whole family, a couple struggling to conceieve a child, family role dynamics and the very real issue of what kids go through in a divorce and all the issues are dealt with in a very real, very normal way and everyone will see at least some of their family in it.

There are some funny light hearted moments in it and its not all serious all the time, it will make you smile, it will make you laugh and it will make you cry but it is one of the best cast ensembles you will see on television, its on par with brothers and sisters for me.

Worth every penny you spend on it, i have now seen both seasons and i will definitely recommend this for your shelf if you havent seen it.
