Manfred just bit off more than he can chew
Jason Lewis, that's who
Let's be honest: Everyone could use a little Adam Braverman in their life. Since NBC's Parenthood debuted in 2010, we've watched Zeke and Camille's firstborn — played so perfectly by Peter Krause — grow from being a tad neurotic and overprotective to quickly become the family's shoulder to cry on and one of our favorite characters on television. Whether it was attempting to "hip it up" to get a rapper's business, wearing a pirate costume for his son Max (Max Burkholder), trying to find the perfect wig for his wife Kristina (Monica Potter) during chemo or unleashing his signature dance moves (aka "The Fever"), here are the 31 times (so far) we have adored Adam Braverman.
Parenthood's Season 5 finale could've easily served as a series ending, and a satisfying one at that, so much so that both the drama's showrunner and its stars wondered if the network would feel it was the right place to end. "I got nervous watching [the finale] because I felt like, that kind of leaves it in a place where the network can very easily say, 'Oh, that's a nice ending to a series," Peter Krause told a theater full of fans Saturday at the show's ATX Television Festival panel, moderated by this reporter. Added showrunner Jason Katims, "This year, I honestly was hedging my bets. More than any other [season], I didn't know whether the show was going to come back and I thought it was a good chance we wouldn't."
