My initial thoughts on Parenthood was that it was being set up for failure. It was just too close to Gilmore Girls with Lauren Graham. I watched it and still felt the same way, it was ok but not great. Lately though I find myself tuning in anyways. Is it on the same level as my beloved GG? Nope.
Maybe it’s just because there is nothing else on Tuesday nights. GG was also on Tuesdays but it was actually good. It’s just weird to see Lauren Graham in a single mother role without the crazy cast of Stars Hollow characters. Everytime I see the daughter I think “You are not Rory”. Plus this week there was a sweet moment between her and her daughter’s teacher when he gave her a book to read. Then there was a mother/daughter fight about the teacher. Sound familiar? I think Lauren must be having some serious deja vu.
