Did Anyone Watch Parenthood Last Night? An Aspiring Writer's Dream!

Wow!  I must have missed an episode because I had no idea that Lauren Graham's character, Sarah, was an aspiring writer!  Apparently she snuck a copy of her work into an English Professor's house expecting he would hate it. After watching the 38 year-old character Sarah struggle to find her career path this season, it was so exciting to see her work validated by the professor.  Having missed the parts portraying her writing, I was blown away by this scene. One minute she's interviewing for a bar manager position, the next - a playwrite!  Now we can all look forward to Sarah finishing the second part of her play. I can't think of  many modern characters that are portrayed as writers in a way that viewers can relate like this one. Did anyone else catch this?

  1. Sounds like a great show, I have never seen it, but now you make me want to check it out. Castle is a writer, but other than that, I can't think of anyone portrayed as a writer on TV as a profession, unless you count Brennans' character on Bones.

  2. I don't normally catch this show but always wish I can when I see previews. This episode I did happen to catch most of. It was cute how shocked and excited she was--and how she talks incessantly just like on Gilmore Girls. By the way--I happened to want to watch it for the part about the tween boy with an Asbergers/Autism diagnosis. It really struck me.
