PAR­ENT­HOOD

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

Chan­nel 7, Tues­day, 9.30pm ★★★★ If you were a fan of Broth­ers & Sis­ters, but haven’t dis­cov­ered Par­ent­hood, give it a go. It’s a fam­ily drama that con­sis­tently de­liv­ers a high stan­dard of writ­ing and per­for­mances. Key to its suc­cess are stars Peter Krause and Mon­ica Pot­ter and how they’ve ne­go­ti­ated the emo­tional stress of their son Max hav­ing Asperger syn­drome. It’s an is­sue that rocks the house­hold in tonight’s episode, which looks at Max strug­gling to com­pre­hend the pun­ish­ment for an al­ter­ca­tion with an­other kid at school. There are more fire­works when Sarah (Lauren Gra­ham) ar­rives home from a date to find her drunk ex­hus­band Seth (John Cor­bett) in the gar­den. DD
