DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

IT’S re­ally help­ing me keep up with where the adop­tion’s at, what brand of cof­fee Ju­lia Braver­man’s drink­ing. The one she’s drink­ing right now isn’t from Zoe’s trol­ley, there­fore we can take it she’s not get­ting her baby from Zoe ei­ther. It’s an enor­mous cof­fee, it should keep her go­ing, in the same way she should be sat­is­fied with the big, healthy daugh­ter she’s al­ready got at home. But these Par­ent­hood peo­ple, they en­joy noth­ing more than mak­ing them­selves mis­er­able then talk­ing about it for ages.

I mean, I don’t want to sound all ’ 70s here but how long is Kristina (Mon­ica Pot­ter) go­ing to sulk be­cause her hus­band smooched his sec­re­tary? I didn’t see last week’s episode but from tonight’s re­cap it didn’t look like much. Rachel, the girl, de­scribes it tonight as ‘‘ one drunk mis­take’’, so she’s prob­a­bly not go­ing to turn all Fa­tal At­trac­tion. But Kristina’s still push­ing Adam (Peter Krause) to knife her, and hire his sis­ter Sarah’s daugh­ter Am­ber, who is about to throw her­self un­der a bus if she doesn’t leave her cafe job, like, to­day. Gos­sipy aside here, Peter Krause is go­ing out with his screen sis­ter Sarah in real life, Lau­ren Gra­ham. And who used to be much more fun when she was Lore­lai on Gil­more Girls. She’s still see­ing that guy Mark on Par­ent­hood, he seems into her but he’s too dull. They babysit Adam and Kristina’s baby tonight. Mark loves it, takes heaps of videos, it’s a bit alarm­ing re­ally.

‘‘ This is of­fi­cially the lit­tlest baby I have ever held,’’ he says. Sarah wants to roll her eyes but doesn’t. I’m only guess­ing. It’s nice she’s got a boyfriend at last, I sup­pose. Maybe Adam and Kristina should’ve got them to look af­ter their son Max in­stead, but Kristina’s all giddy with ex­cite­ment about go­ing back to full­time em­ploy­ment and skirts and ac­tual footwear.
