Why Parenthood is Better

I prefer Parenthood over Modern Family. I believe it is a better show and that it will be remembered more positively in the future. Both series deal with dilemmas faced by families at present as so many shows in TV history have boasted of doing. What separates Parenthood is that it is about communication instead of miscommunication. In the Braverman universe, miscommunication still exists except here it is not the chief plot device. Here, at a speed and manner resembling life, characters learn. That seems to be the idea of Parenthood, that people can learn and grow. Characters in other shows learn too but usually it’s little more than to laugh at themselves because there is little hope of actual personal improvement. Modern Family may well be the best sitcom on television but Parenthood aspires to and acheives something greater.
