I know you guys might be sick of me gushing over everything Jason Katims on this site, but I can't help it, the dude is one of the best television writers out there. It's because of him that I start my day by looking in the mirror and saying "clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" (Okay, okay-- I don't really. Or maybe I do...) So, if you miss Friday Night Lights as much as I do, I urge you once again to start watching Parenthood. Not only has the show made me fall in love with Dax Shepard (yes, the guy from Punk'd) but it's given me my realistic married couple fix in the form of Adam and Kristina Braverman. This fight scene screams Emmy nomination.
Here's the back story. Adam just hired this hot new assistant to work at his recording studio. He told her that she doesn't need to dress so provocatively, because she's smart and beautiful on the inside, but she took that the wrong way and kissed him. When Adam told his wife Kristina about the kiss, she asked him to fire the assistant. Here's what happened when he couldn't go through with it:
This fight seems so real, right? I'm def Team Kristina on this one. I love when she says that every other women in her situation would feel the same way (I've used that line in many an argument). And the whole hot girl in the workplace does bug me out a little bit. I mean, a former Bachelor contestant just started working at my H-bomb's company. What if he comes home one day and tells me he gave her the final rose and I end up getting interviewed by Chris Harrison in some After the Final Rose show where we're surrounded by candles and terrible flower arrangements and a studio audience? This is the kind of shit that keeps me up at night.
Anyway, please start watching Parenthood. It's the best drama on Broadcast TV.
