>The family drama Parenthood (NBC, Tuesdays) could be called The Overshare Show. Parents, kids, lovers—they’re all trying, with stammering earnestness, to stake their ground on thorny emotional issues. This drove me batty when the show premiered in 2010, but as Lauren Graham and a large, excellent cast perfected the show’s ensemble rhythm, it became endearing. The show is a birdhouse full of woodpeckers. []
