Parenthood Review: "Namaste No More"

at . Comments

At first we thought this installment of Parenthood was a bit slow, but things surely heated up quickly on “Namaste No More”, and by the end of the show the patriarch of this family was kicked out of his own home.  We don’t really know if we think Camille should forgive him.  Would you?

Crosby and Jasmine found passion in the bedroom, Haddie goes to Amber for relationship advice, Zeek comes clean about his financial woes, and Julia decides to coach her daughter’s soccer team.  Each Braverman story has many elements that you can make connections with; maybe that is why this show is such a huge success.  People enjoy watching others with bigger problems than they have themselves. It makes this show even a bit therapeutic to watch!

Great seeing things get spicy between the two new love birds, Crosby and Jasmine.  At first we were a bit reluctant, seeing all the sneaking around behind their son’s back.  But at the end, when Crosby admits to wanting a real relationship with Jasmine… we really couldn’t be more happy.  These two are destined to be together.  Do you think this relationship will work out?  We surely hope so! 

We can’t believe that after her cousin breaks up with her first real boyfriend, Amber has the nerve to start messing around with him!  What are you thinking girl?  We guess you really are NOT thinking!  Once Haddie gets wind of what’s going on we see this causing a huge rift between these two.  The preview for next week makes it look like Amber also sleeps with Steve.  Can we get anymore drama?

With the help and encouragement of his kids, Zeek finally tells Camille about their financial troubles.  It turns out that money is the least of their problems…  Zeek also can’t keep it in his pants!

Poor Camille, she breaks down to her daughter Sarah and tells her everything.  We know this must have been hard for Sarah to hear.  Do you think Zeek and Camille will be able to work things out?   What’s wrong with men these days?  Is it just in a man’s DNA to screw any woman given the opportunity? 

The previews for next week show an explosive episode.  We cannot wait!

Until then, here are a few of our favorite Parenthood quotes to keep you entertained:

Camille: I'm going to the market do you need anything?
Sarah: Could you get me a six pack of a different kind of intelligence.
Camille: What kind would you like? | permalink
Amber: Dude I'm so sorry. But believe me, if there's one thing I know, you don't want to cash in your V chip with a cliché, or a jerk, or douche. | permalink
Adam: I just want you guys to know the things I'm about to do with this blue cheese should probably be illegal. | permalink
Jabbar: Should I go back to bed and make believe I didn't see you?
Crosby: Yes, that's a good plan. | permalink
Crosby: This is the worst Adam, sounds like Dr. Phil wrote this. | permalink

Hmm...I think it's pretty lame. They are cousins - you don't hook up with someone your cousin just broke it off with a hot minute ago. It would be bad if they were friends, but blood? That's just gross and wrong.
I adore Jabbar!!!


I also like the dynamic between Amber and Steve, way more than the relationship Steve had with Haddie.. Yea the circumstances aren't great, but I feel like there's a real connection and Amber deserves to be happy just as much as Haddie if it's Steve that makes her happy, Haddie will find someone who's on the same page as her easily; it's not as if they were in a long term committed relationship. As for the rest of the episode, the cast keeps giving great performances. I love the kids too, they're great little actors.


@ Louise sorry about that. Updated to feature Lauren Graham.


Honestly I love Amber and Steeve! A lot more than Hadie and him. But maybe it's just because I really like Amber. :) I can't wait to see what's next between them even if the fact that she betrayed her cousin isn't a great start for a relationship...


No, the current cast photo features Maura instead of Lauren Graham.

It was a really good ep this week, Note to TV fanatic...can you please update the cast photo to a more current one?
