Before we begin our review of Parenthood, I would just like to state that nothing tops last week's scene showcasing Adam Braverman as the cutest stoner in all the land.
I love Adam for the patriarch that he is, but to see my future husband involuntarily let loose was a treat. ILYAB.
I missed Camille this episode. Where was my voice of reason when Zeek pushed Seth against the car? And wasn't Zeek the one who called Seth a few episodes ago to tell him that he needs to call his son? I'm not pointing fingers, just saying...
Meanwhile, Michael Emerson guest-starred as an adult with Asberger's syndrome hired to perform a bug show for Max's birthday.
I can't believe Adam and Kristina didn't realize that Andy had Asberger's right away. For people who are around it all day, every day, they're not as sharp as I thought they were. I called it as soon as Andy got out of his bug car. It was a good lesson for the Braverman family.Zeek was psyched to learn that a person with Asberger's can fully function within society and even run their own business. "That's a nice rig," he said to Andy. "I bet you get the ladybugs with that one."
After that, Zeek was fully committed to making sure Andy had enough space to set up his famous bug show. (P.S. Did anyone catch Kristina rocking the plush bug Andy gave her in their backyard? At one point she was patting its back.)
And how about Adam's intro to "Amazing Andy And His Wonderful World Of Bugs?" When he sang his lines to the tune of "Three Blind Mice," it was like last week's episode all over again. There are hearts popping up over my head.
It's great that Kristina was cool with Julia and Joel fornicating on her bathroom sink, all in the name of a baby. You best disinfect that area tonight, though, girl.
Red flags surround Gaby every time she's on an episode of Parenthood. Nothing good will ever come out of her and Crosby a) Flirting b) Having sex. Crosby is engaged. True, he's going through a rough patch with Jasmine at the moment, but he's behaving way worse than Ross Gellar ever did. He totally wanted to kiss Gaby over margaritas, and when he saw Gaby talk Andy into starting the show fifteen minutes earlier, he decided he needed to bed her.
