|IMAGE VIA PARENTHOOD ON NBC.|
So I normally stray away from blogging about TV and media (except as a total sidenote, when I first started blogging, I had a What I'm Watching Wednesday post series where I would talk about movies/TV shows I watched and liked), this is my blog and I'm going to spend an entire blog post chatting about a TV show series ending.
Yes, I am that girl. And yes, I DO love Parenthood and will keep on shouting it out forever and always.
If you've never watched Parenthood, I'll try and forgive you and then I'll try and
But here's some backstory--I started watching Parenthood when I first started college and was living in a dorm. My dorm experience was not, well, the best and so I used lots of minutes (back when I had limited minutes and no texting!) and TV to help me cope with life away from home. #homebody
I remember looking at the family tree of the Braverman clan on the show website and was intrigued by the huge cast and interesting set of characters and actors. Mostly, I was intrigued that there was a TV show coming out about a family. #familygirl
And here I am 6 years later still stuck on the Bravermans. They stuck with me those six years of craziness called college and worklife and here I am learning from them still.
I've learned that family is there for you--always. I already knew this, but I loved being able to relate to such an awesomely close-knit family who, well, valued family.
I learned that life is to be lived. I learned that I really want kids. And that I think Joel is kinda sorta attractive. And that I want to have a house like Adam and Kristina. And that crying is a-okay. That Amber's character is strong and courageous. That love is real. That I want to be a Braverman. And that I dream of the day when they do a show reunion or spinoff with the grandkids (right, Jess?).
But most of all, that time is precious. And that you need to love your family, your friends, and your loved ones and enjoy the time you've got with them.
So let's chat about Parenthood, okay? Did you watch the finale? Did you predict everything that happen to happen? Did you like where they took the characters into the future? What are you going to watch on Thursday nights now? And it's okay if you join in if you've never watched it!
