Parenthood 4.01 Sneak Peeks: Sarah Gets a Job and Doesn’t Fight for Mark

parenthoodOf all the Bravermans (and there are a lot of them), I think that I root for Sarah the most. Her flightiness, lack of direction, and general inability to remain stable, financially or otherwise, might all be character flaws, but they’re also reasons to pull for her on every episode of Parenthood. You want Sarah Braverman to finally put it all together and get to live her life for herself, not her children, not her parents, and not her lover. However, each time that you think that the mother of two might have unlocked the secret to happiness, she finds some way to set herself back.

The season premiere of Parenthood, titled “Family Portrait”, finds Sarah going in opposite directions with her professional and personal lives. The former will be on the up-and-up, as she’ll be going from a writing career that stalled to having a new job at a photography studio. Of course, Sarah has no photography experience or anything, but she does have experience in dealing with people and that’s something that her new boss might need a little help with. Hank’s cold, cynical, and doesn’t treat the customers great, but if he can have someone like Sarah around, he might be able to bring in more business.

Her personal life is kind of all over the place, however. Though she did end up accepting Mark’s proposal, there’s already a problem that has come up between them – the family portrait. Namely, Camille has an unwritten rule that only family members are allowed to take part in the photo and Mark, only being a fiancee rather than a husband, has been left out this year. To make matters worse, Sarah didn’t really fight for him with Camille, so not only does the Braverman family not seem that into Mark, his own fiancee isn’t willing to stick her neck out for him, either. Will this cause more problems in the future for the once-happy couple?

The fourth season of Parenthood will premiere Tuesday at 10:00 on NBC. You can check out four additional sneak peeks of the episode here, as well as spoilers for the season here and the TVOvermind Parenthood discussion forum here.

What do you think about Sarah not writing anymore? Will her new job at the photography studio work out at all? Do you think that Mark should be in the family portrait?
