    Anyone watching Parenthood?

    I'm not a big TV fan, but for some reason this show has me hooked. Anyone else? It premeried a few weeks ago after the Olympics and I think it's been better every week. It has its definite cheeseball moments but the storylines and characters are very 'real' and compelling to me...
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
    -Walt Whitman

    My wife loves it. I've only watched a few minutes but it seemed decent enough.

    Between Parenthood, The Good Wife, Southland, and Justified, there are some good shows on at 10 pm on Tuesday.

    Being the DVR-less fossil I am, I'll catch Parenthood on reruns.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    My wife is intrigued, I haven't seen it yet. Our son has Asperger's, it made a good connection.

    I watched the first episode and it was a little too schlocky for me. But that's probably because I don't have kids.

    My wife had it on last night and I had to walk out of the room. It was your typical prime time soap opera, full of illegitimate kids, overly dramatic arguments and lots of pouting. Parenthood in real life ain't that tough
