Times have really changed since the 1980s, and I guess that's the best thing about Parenthood is it's a time capsule back to the late 80s when all those self important baby boomers were having babies of their own and they needed to let the entire world know it...'Baby on Board' OMG.
This episodic comedy centers on the Buckman family, led by one Gil Buckman (Steve Martin) and his wife Karen (Mary Steenburgen), who serve as the centerpiece for a dysfunctional family that includes Gil's hard-drinking father (Jason Robards), who took Gil to baseball games as a child and used to leave him alone and pay ushers to watch him.
