I was very impressed with the Pilot of this show. I am glad Lauren Graham has the chance to do such emotional acting. I was kind of worried about her in this role, because i thought she was just going to act like Lorelei from Gilmore Girls. The bottom line is, she is great. Peter Krause is good just like he is good in everything he is in. Craig T. Nelson is just as good. Dax Shepard is pretty good along with the rest of the cast. The plots they come up with are mildly engrossing, but I am watching it because I like the characters. The story revolves around this single mother (Graham) who has to move back into her parents house along with her two kids. If you like to watch family dramas, than Parenthood is a must see!
