If you don’t know me by now, I’ll let it slide, but also let you know that I continue to hate TV, especially now that NBC’s track record fails to impress. Community has gotten way too soft, even after the disastrous premiere, Revolution‘s lost its spark, but Parenthood keeps on trucking, because it’s a big ol’ truck with lots of gas and… mileage… and family values? Look, I’m trying to say NBC’s renewal of Parenthood ensures I’ll have something to watch on Hulu come Fall, now that The Office is wrapping up.
Entering its fifth season, Parenthood continues the journey of the massive Braverman clan. Sure it’s melodramatic (Cancer! Adoption! Etc.!), but it’s my melodramatic. On top of Parenthood and Revolution, NBC also submitted 22-episode orders for Grimm, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Chicago Fire.
