Anyone else up to date??


For some reason I always saw Julia's storyline going that way but still it made me so sad, I imagine that there would be people in that situation in real life and it would just be heartbreaking.

Yes. I agree it was so sad especially Joel's face since he asked her flat out two episodes ago.

not on free to air, this is at Us pace, but I would think that it can't be too far away here.  It is usually paired with Rafter isn't it?

So you want to know what I was talking about?  




Look away now if you still haven't realised this will have SPOILERS!!







Julia is going to adopt Zoe's baby (the coffee cart girl)  they get all friendly and Julia basically takes care of her and Zoe even moves in with them for a while, they sign all the documents etc and then Julia is with her at the birth of the baby (a boy).  Zoe doesn't want to see the baby, or hold him or anything, and then you see Julia, Joel and Sidney coming to the hospital all excited to bring the baby home  to find Zoe in the nursery with him, looking at him with that look of love for a newborn and we realise that she has changed her mind and they will not be able to adopt him after all.  It was just so sad because you could totally relate to both women in that situation, one desperately wanting a baby and one totally in love with her newborn and not able to contemplate giving him away.

I imagine there will be more next ep as that happened right at the end of this ep.

I was wondering that too, must have doubled it or something to make Adam get so serious about it, I can see that this will cause a big rift between them though.

I didn't like the follow up episode much, they have a habit of not dealing with the hard stuff on this show, and I would have liked to see Julia dealing with the loss a bit more, not just her saying goodbye to Zoe.  And wasn't it convenient that another child is available already for them?  Not sure how true that sort of thing is, adoptions like that, super quick ones.


I like Drew and his girlfriend though, I wonder where that storyline is going.

Drew was cute... hope they used protection wink.gif I feel it is a little funny though how much drama there was about Hattie's first time and how it seems to be okay if it's guy...

didn't like the Mark and Sara thing... He wants to do things in the right order? how about dating a little more? (also read that Jason Ritter was cast in a new pilot from the same guy who does Parenthood, so if that takes off, things are looking bad for Mark and Sara anyway)

And Julia and Joel, I know it is really heartbreaking what happened but you never see their daughter in all this... They DO have a child and yeah I hate TV shows where adoption just happen within the span of a day or two.

But in saying that I still love the show and hope it gets renewed...
