When The Fuck Did Sarah Become A Super On Parenthood?
We haven’t talked about Parenthood‘s fifth season at all yet, but things are mostly business as usual: Haddie is a ghost and you can feel her presence throughout each scene that takes place in her former home; Julia and Joel cannot so much as speak to a member of the opposite sex to whom they are unrelated without having the other one become jealous, which seems insane until you realize that they cannot so much as speak to a member of the opposite sex without being emotionally inappropriate with that person, so the immediate jealousy actually does make some sense; Amber is going to marry her army boyfriend who continues to show signs of crippling emotional instability; Drew accidentally learned about Joni Mitchell; Adam talked to a rapper and now he wants to turn The Luncheonette into a recording studio record company publishing advertising distribution house, which Crosby is unsure about; Victor still can’t read; Sydney is still an unbelievable asshole; so is Zeek; Camille should seriously just divorce him and live the life she wants and deserves to live; remember when he CHEATED ON HER?; Kristina is running for mayor and her campaign advisor keeps spending so much money on juice; Max is good at taking photos and Ray Romano believes in him; Jasmine doesn’t have a plot line other than that she is tired because of her new, awful baby — blah, blah, blah, it all makes sense. Except, wait, oh, right, yeah, Sarah:
SARAH IS A SUPER NOW? Whaaaaaat?! HOW DARE YOU, PARENTHOOD. UNLESS I JUST MISSED SOMETHING. How dare you return for a fifth season and jump right into Sarah, former bartender, former shoe assistant, and former photography assistant, acting as the SUPER OF AN APARTMENT BUILDING. A JOB THAT SHE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO DO, OBVIOUSLY, SO THEN WHY DOES SHE HAVE IT AND HOW DID SHE GET IT? DO YOU EXPECT US TO JUST GO WITH IT? “OH RIGHT, A SUPER, SHE WAS PROBABLY ALWAYS A SUPER? DID WE JUST FORGET? SHE MUST HAVE GOTTEN THIS JOB LAST SEASON AND WE’RE ALL JUST FORGETTING,” IS THAT WHAT YOU EXPECTED?! HOW DARE YOU. YOU EXPLAIN TO US WHY SHE IS A SUPER! YOU GIVE US AT LEAST ONE LINE OF EXPLANATORY DIALOGUE! “UGH, WHY DID I EVER, GOD, I DON’T KNOW, APPLY FOR THIS JOB AFTER I SAW THE LISTING IN THE NEWSPAPER AND THEN GET IT BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL SUPER DIED AND I LIED AND TOLD EVERYONE THAT BEFORE HE DIED HE TOLD ME I WAS THE NEW SUPER.” SOMETHING! PARENTHOOD! ARE YOU LISTENING?!?!!? Please participate in this poll:
