There’s only one month left before Lauren Graham‘s T.V. show Parenthood premieres on NBC! Allison Waldman of TVSquad posted another promo from the show and asks if Lauren’s role as Sarah Braveman is just a remix of Lorelai Gilmore. A TVSquad staff member saw the pilot and has this to say:
According to Joel, who saw the pilot, Sarah is no Lorelai. She’s not chummy-chummy with her children. She’s a lot tougher and more of a mom than a buddy. That would definitely be different from ‘Gilmore Girls.’ Lorelai and Rory’s relationship was unique because they were really best friends… most of the time.
That might be true, but after watching this promo, I feel much like Allison does: that the way Sarah talks to her children when they walk away from her was Lorelai-esque:
I think that Lauren just owned the Lorelai character so well that now, unfortunately, we’ll always think of that when we watch her in other roles, even in drastically different ones (like say, her turn on Bad Santa). What do you think? Does this clip remind you of Lorelai?
