Sad sad

Parenthood, I miss you already.

Your final episode sits in denial on my DVR, as if not erasing it will bring back the series next season.

Could it?

You Bravermans were that perfectly imperfect clan — often close to imploding but always ending up even closer together.

I’ll miss the endless baseball games and backyard gatherings under the twinkly lights. Everyone singing or dancing for some reason or other. And giving sudiences the first indepth conversation about Asperger’s syndrome on network TV.

Over your six seasons, my obsession with characters morphed and changed with the storylines.  But I will always love Julia and Joel, and be grateful for the addition of Hank, because Ray Romano is a wonderful dramatic actor (which I discovered in Men of a Certain Age) and I loved what he brought to Parenthood.

I’m rambling because I hate to say goodbye. Let’s just say, “See ya later…”

Because I will be watching again soon.

Ray of hope

Dear Ron Howard:

Thank you for adding Ray Romano to the cast of Parenthood this season.

I love his character, Hank.  I love the relationship that Hank has with Sarah Braverman, played by Lauren Graham.

Heck, I even love his glasses.

As devastated as I was by the cancellation of Romano’s wonderful TBS series Men of a Certain Age, this new role almost heals that wound.

Almost.

If Hank ends up having a limited run, though, the weeping will no doubt start anew.
