Let’s be real. “Best of…” lists are always subjective, I can’t possibly watch everything, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to make one. I still watched a hell of a lot of TV this year, so without further ado, here’s my list of 2014 TV superlatives:
It’s summertime, which means vacation – the beach, road trips, camping and all sorts of other travel shenanigans. Not all of us can be jet-setters though, so if you’re planning a staycation or just need something to do when its raining or when you are so sunburned that going outside is out of the question, here’s a handful of vacation episodes from your favorite TV shows to enjoy.
Happy Thanksgiving y’all. I’ve got a lot of things to be thankful for this year – and no, those things are not TV related (I do have a life outside of the box), but in the spirit of this blog – here’s some entertainment for your turkey filled day.
NBC just extended Parenthood‘s season three to 18 episodes. While that’s not a typical 22-episode order, the addition of two episodes just three weeks into the current TV season is certainly a showing of good faith.
Parenthood is loosely based off the 1989 movie of the same name starring Steve Martin, but the series was reconceived by Jason Katims, of Friday Night Lights fame. Katims involvement alone should be enough of a reason to watch this show, but it also stars some pretty great actors including Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Mae Whitman, and Craig T. Nelson just to name a few.
And while NBC’s Parenthood is defined as a drama it certainly finds the right mix of humor and lightheartedness to make it one of those rare feel-good shows that still manages to reflect real life. So yeah, I am totally recommending that you check this series out.
Although it’s not essential to watch the last two seasons to understand what’s going on, I always recommend it. But if you don’t have time to completely catch up, here’s some essential episodes I recommend watching:
Parenthood airs on NBC at 10pm on Tuesdays. The last five episodes of the current season are always available on Hulu.com and the first two seasons can be found on DVD.[via Deadline]
