For so long, Joel was a rock in constantly troubled waters, staunch in principle and consistent in action. So why is he being such a dick?

Phew! NBC Finally Renews Parenthood (for a Final Season)

Parenthood's Season 4 Finale: Engineered for Your Sobbing Satisfaction

Parenthood S04E15: "Because You're My Sister"

I feel okay talking about this since Parenthood has been doing so well in the ratings lately that I don't feel like I'm jinxing it. This isn't the last episode and, barring any kind of insanity from NBC, it's near certain to be renewed. But what would the last episode of this show have to be?

Most series would put a button on all their storylines to show that the current chapter of the characters' lives is over. But Parenthood is basically about the mundanity of life set to tears. So how does this show end spectacularly? How would the series finale bring it in a way that other episodes have not?

Based on the 1989 film of the same name, 'Parenthood' is a 45-minute long comedy-drama produced by Jason Katims, Ron Howard, and Brian Grazer. The show depicts the modern challenges of raising a family in this post-technological world, addressing issues that affect both children and parents. The Braverman "clan" depicts three generations with patriarch Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) and matriarch Camille (Bonnie Bedelia) adjusting to their empty nest as their four adult children form their own families. Adam (Peter Krause) is the oldest son and married to Kristina (Monica Potter) with two children (a third arrives soon after). Sarah (Lauren Graham) is the eldest daughter and has two children with an ex-husband who periodically appears. Crosby (Dax Shepard) is the youngest son and learns he has a son with Jasmine (Joy Bryant). Finally, Julia (Erika Christensen) is the youngest child and has two children with her husband Joel (Sam Jaeger). The show has captivated audiences with a deeply connected and personable cast and emotionally-driven, realistic storylines touching on all aspects of family life. The series is set in Berkeley, California and is filmed in Southern California.

The show has 10 wins and 18 nominations. In 2013, Monica Potter won a Best Supporting Actress in a Drama award from the Critics Choice TV Awards. The show has also been nominated for a Golden Globe and for a Primetime Emmy.
