Parenthood, “The Pontiac” (5.22)-TV Recap

Even though this is from Victor's prize winning essay (titled "The Pontiac", which is where the finale gets its title from) about him working on Zeke's GTO in relation to Joel and Julia's marriage falling apart, this quote could be easily talking about season 5 of Parenthood as a... Read More »

After three stellar episodes in a row, this week's episode, "Cold Feet," not only does the double meaning of the title better than last week's episode, but was also a literal interpretation of where the season is at before the big finale. The episodes revisits a bunch of the more... Read More »

Noah Review – NP Approved

Noah is a difficult film to talk about. But then again, Darren Aronofsky has never taken the easy route with any of his films. Whether it be tackling math equations, drug addiction, eternal recurrence across the cosmos, a washed up wrestler seeking redemption or a mentally frag... Read More »

TV Recap: Parenthood, “The Enchanting Mr. Knight” (5.16)

Despite the episode's title ("The Enchanting Mr. Knight") and the NBC promotional department declaring this a "special episode", this is an episode that I would describe as more "blah" than amazing. After last week's episode that dealt with Julia on her own and the siblings comin... Read More »

TV Recap: Parenthood, “You’ve Got Mold” (5.13)

Usually I put the best line of the episode at the end of the recap, but in this case, I felt like it needs to be right up front. Because ultimately, I feel that this line, which comes at the end of probably the most stellar episode of the season in quite some time (maybe even si... Read More »
