I’m excited for this weekend, as I’ll be heading to Orlando for the annual Syfy Digital Press Tour. This is the first time I’ll be attending this event when there isn’t a set visit involved, but it sounds like they’ve got plenty of other fun activities planned in addition to hearing from the cast and creators of many of Syfy’s exciting new shows that will be coming later this year and next. But we’ve still got a couple more days before the weekend, and also that means another batch of TV recommendations…
Last week’s Parenthood was another emotion-filled episode as Zeek went in for heart surgery. As the family anxiously awaited the results of the operation in the waiting room, Amber went on a road trip with Drew to tell Ryan about the baby. Even though Ryan seemed all on board to be a father, Amber had to make the tough decision to break things off with him. Meanwhile, Sarah tried to bond with Hank’s daughter Ruby, but when Sarah saw her shoplifting at the store, she didn’t know what to do. Also, Crosby and Adam fought over how to handle a disastrous situation that threatened the future of the recording studio, and Julia finally told Joel that she was seeing someone else.
I originally just wanted Julia and Joel to get back together, but they went and made her new boyfriend a likaeable, great guy, and now I’m torn. This series always does a great job of pulling at your heart strings, and it was a tense and emotionally charged time last week with the family in the waiting room. Being its final season, this is a show that could have easily killed off Zeek last week—I still have my doubts he’ll survive the series, but it’s good to see the Braverman clan intact for a little while longer. I also suspect that Ryan will be back in Amber’s life before the end of the series.
On tonight’s episode, “A Potpourri of Freaks,” Max forms an intimate new friendship. Elsewhere, Sarah encounters Sandy and tries to understand the role she plays in Ruby’s life; Hank deals with a diplomacy challenge; Julia and Joel worry that their separation is having an adverse effect on their kids; and Crosby tries to avoid a crisis by going after Oliver.
Check out all the drama tonight on NBC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Bad Judge, A to Z, Bones, and Gracepoint.
