Families: You can’t choose them, so you might as well get used to them. For some, that means awkward and forced dinners a few times a year; for others, like the close-knit clan on Parenthood, it means poking around in just about every aspect of each others’ lives. Tonight, Amber (Mae Whitman) hopes to get some child-minding practice in before her baby arrives by looking after Max and Nora. But the results are less than perfect and Sarah (Lauren Graham) is called in for support. Then, Joel (Sam Jaeger) and Julia (Erika Christensen, above) come close to making a decision on their relationship.
