  1. I've only seen one episode of the show Parenthood, and I wasn't sure if I liked it. But, a member on a local listserv just posted this link :

    This link connects to commentaries written by two local folks from Emory University about the portrayal of Asperger's Syndrome in the show. I've read a few of their comments, and they resonate with me!

    I've been watching this show since it started, and before the character's diagnosis I was already sitting there going "That's my kid! Are they going to have some magical sitcom-y transformation that is no help to me, or will there be something I can learn from this?"

    I tried to watch this show because of the Aspie storyline but I despise the one from Gilwhore Girls so much that I can't watch it.
