Such a good show! I cried during Kevin's monologue about death and when they put the hat on Jack's urn. My husband laughs at me for being too invested in the show!

I saw something that said if you didn't like "Parenthood" then you probably wouldn't like this either. Thus I have not as yet watched it as I really did not like Parenthood at all. Those who have - would you agree with that statement?

I really wasn't a real big "Parenthood" fan but love this show.

Love this show, hubby won't watch we me though, so I sit with a glass of wine, watch the show and text one of my friends during the commercials because she's doing the same thing.

I couldn't place the actor playing Jack and then it hit me, he's Luke's nephew, Jesse, on Gilmore Girls!

Did anyone happen to catch the ending of last week's show where Randal is in a bedroom packing up what appears to be his father's belongings? Does this mean that his father passed away?

No. It was a flash forward according to an interview with the creator.

Good. I'm glad to hear it's a flash forward because I like the storyline and would hate to see it end so soon.

He also played Peter on Heroes

Watched the first two episodes last night, and now planning how to catch up on the other ones over the weekend. The entire time I was watching, I knew I'd seen Kevin somewhere before -- thanks for pointing out he was on Y&R!

I wonder, is there any way they could show more commercials? I have no television "routine" at all (the last show I watched every week was West Wing), so maybe my perspective is off, but it seems like they are constantly interrupting the story line. The location of the "mute" button is now part of my digital memory.

^^^^^This is why I set my DVR and watch it the next day, so I can fast forward through. I did watch one episode on the NBC app, but of course had to watch commercials on that to gain access to the content. There are definitely a lot a commercials.

I have a 6th sense about how long commercials will last.....i'm a channel-flipper and am good at getting back in time to not miss anything. (Speaking generally here....i haven't seen the show ya'll are talking about.)

I just binge watched this show! This is my favorite show at the nothing in the and hope it stays. Too often I get invested and they cancel a show.

The Thanksgiving episode was SO good! I finally had a chance to watch it on Friday afternoon. I cried, I laughed! I told my husband he has to watch it (then I can watch it again too!)

Talk about awkward! Poor Kate had no idea what she walked into.

It is one of the best shows ever. I do struggle a little bit about with going between past and current.
Still totally worth watching. I did see that next week is the final episode for the season. Hopefully it comes back after the 1st of the year.

I don't see how it could be canceled. It has generated so much buzz. Seemingly only an actor contract dispute could derail the show at this point.

So I finally got all caught up on the show this weekend. I cried so much on these last three episodes because I can relate to this so much. As an adoptive mother I can relate to the mother's feelings about not telling Randall that she knew his father, but also understand Randall's feelings of being lied to. If there is one thing that is stressed in adoption now in the 2000s vs. the 90s and earlier is openness because it helps the child know who they are and where they came from.

I can also 100% relate to Kate's struggle with weight loss. I had gastric bypass surgery in October 2015 it was the hardest and best decision I ever made. GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW!!! I really hope they bring it back.

Only one character is perfect, Randall's wife who loves and admires her dorky husband fiercely, so it remains somewhat credible. However, they are already starting to stretch for story lines [spoilers deleted].

I agree. Too many side story shockers at once. They don't feel necessary and the pacing is far from natural.

As much as I love the Randall/William storyline, I don't think they've become so close yet that William would bring a friend for Christmas unannounced. And Randall's wife needs to be developed more as a character. Right now she is so one dimensional....and way too supportive of all the drama. I'd be kicking people "out my house" at this point.

Wow, I think they got their groove back!

While I don't think Kevin's "exit" was credible, enjoying a play or movie requires the "willful suspension of disbelief." It was incredibly poignant.

Now, there's only one twin I can't stand. grin
