Parenthood Tackles Asperger's (March 1)
"I have Asperger's?" Parenthood plays out every parent's worst nightmare when Max learns that he has the syndrome by overhearing an argument between his father and his uncle. Adam and Kristina do their best to sit down and explain what Asperger's is, but they break down when Max asks if they have it, or if his sister has it, and they have to respond no. It's heart-breaking scenes like this that make us hope NBC is collecting compensation from Kleenex.
