I have an issue where I tend to get way to emotionally attached to fictional characters. I do it with books and television shows. Last week the NBC family drama Parenthood came to an end. After watching faithfully for 6 seasons I had to say goodbye to the Braverman family. I would say that over the last 6 years I have cried at 85% of the episodes. My husband will claim it's 100%. But I don't think I cried as hard as I did watching the finale last week. My kids were worried about me.
I loved this show so much because it was about a family who loved each other through all the drama that happens to real families. Through it all the matriarch and patriarch of the family were there to help their children and grandchildren through it all. This last season was particularly emotional and the ending was beautiful and real and heartbreaking. When I was still crying 20 minutes after the show had ended I realized I was so sad because what this family went through on the last episode happens to all families. And it will happen to mine.
This show was beautifully written and filled with emotion. If you haven't watched it head over to Netflix now and start binge watching. Also if you are a fan of Friday Night Lights you will see a lot of your favorites on this show. Even Jason Street makes am appearance in the last 5 minutes of the show.
Have you ever become emotionally attached to a show?
