Hello people. I know exactly whether I will now give the following from me or a spade fell in Wyoming, it comes out the same. Anyway I got to increasing due to my psycho-hygiene. And so read, who enjoys it:
You can judge a series by three criteria: a) the story, b) the staging, c) the actors. OK, this "Parenthood".
To a) The story is so easy to see through, and predictable what's going to happen. Inexperienced members of Bravermans (I can no longer hear this name) show professionals, how is a thing to manage. This is of course nonsense. Looks and gestures tell from the outset how the action continues. This is no suspense but in the long run it is bored. Yawn. No suddenly surprises. And again, and again happy ending. Want to puke. Note for the story: below average, 1 star.
To b) Each of the directors leads the actors constantly on the same mental path. None of the characters evolved mental. That is unrealistic and stupid. There are too many scenes that are similar. Always, you have the impression that you have a perpetual Déjà vu. These directors have dialogues which are superfluous because they describe what we have just seen. For what? Note for the staging: average, 2 stars.
To c) Oh, man. Here, I don't know where to start. Why, everything in the world, chooses Peter Krause always roles of men who have no balls? By the way included a hallmark of all male members of the Bravermans. Joe included. So, you must really have a box of calmative agent on the Chair to not wake up with scream cramps the neighbors, when you see the female actresses. One dumber than the other. The worst of all Kristina. This woman is a pain. A misfortune. A punishment of God. In each episode, there is at least one reason to kill Kristina. This also applies to Sarah and her daughter. Sarah builds ever shit only in their whole life and so screwed up the lives of their children, but constantly confronts them with smart shits. Unbearable this. The only tough women seems (!) to be Jasmin and Heddie.
The grandparents are the cause of all evil. (Or Vietnam?) Zeek, a typical american? No! All over the world are Zeek´s. This intolerable and annoying species of better knowledgeable crab. Only congratulations at this point to Craig t. Nelson for the appearance of Zeek.- Totaly 3 Stars.
Again to Peter Krause: I hope he has not ruined his career with the role of Adam. This was not a serious spectacle of him. What a pity.
Conclusion: I've watched the final episodes only with time jumps because I could no longer see the faces and hear the words. It was a trip with the ghost train. On a formula: I've seen before yet never such a big bullshit.
