has been so good this season, I hope you’ll forgive me if I express some disappointment with its season — and what sometimes looked like its series — finale. For a show that at its best likes to keep things unkempt and frowsy, this hour was a mite too neatly tied up with a pretty bow.
To be sure, this hour also contained many great pleasures. AND HERE I WILL SAY, SPOILERS AHEAD.
Foremost among these pleasures had to be Kristina in her pink wig, going a little Gwen Stefani circa 2000 on us and inspiring the Adam Wide-Eyed Look, which is the Parenthood-approved signal that Adam is officially turned-on. This fashion move also occasioned a double-barreled Crosby joke in which he accused his brother of enjoying an “afternoon delight with Strawberry Shortcake.”
