Our Thursday nights won't be the same now that "Parenthood" and the Braverman family have concluded Season 5.
Although the NBC drama is still on the bubble for another season, the past several episodes prove there are still plenty of stories to tell.

Whether it's Sarah's (Lauren Graham) new relationship status with Hank (Ray Romano), Julia (Ericka Christensen) and Joel's (Sam Jaeger) unresolved marriage struggles, or Amber's (Mae Whitman) pregnancy test, viewers can't wait to find out what happens next in their favorite "Parenthood"characters' lives.
As we bid farewell to Season 5, we’re taking a look back at the transformation each Braverman family unit has undergone throughout the series. We’ll try our best not to make you too emotional.
Adam and Kristina Braverman
Nothing can break apart Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter)! From Adam’s firing at T&S Footwear to Kristina getting diagnosed with cancer, the couple has handled every obstacle in their life with optimism and love.

The episode, "Breaker of Chains," in a nutshell:
* Daenerys prepares to take over Meereen * Tyrion's trial moves forward, with Tywin choosing a surprise judge * The Night's Watch debates how to fight the wildlings
Body count: Dozens
Nudity count: Three
Dragon sightings: None
New people and places: None
Best line: "Say what you will of Cersei, she loves her children. She is the only one I'm certain had nothing to do with this murder, which makes it unique as King's Landing murders go." — Tyrion
Joffrey is dead, and pretty much nobody cares except for his mother. The world keeps turning, and in Westeros, there's no time to grieve a selfish, awful idiot — even if he was the king.

"Orphan Black" came back with a vengeance (Season 2 airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on BBC America) with every single clone (all played by Tatiana Maslany) feeling the pressure. Co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson teased the next level of the show's conspiracy, but we didn't think Cosima — and Sarah pretending to be Cosima — would go so deep into Dyad so quickly. So what's next? Keep reading for some spoiler-free teases... and more on Felix's (Jordan Gavaris) amazing first scene back.
Felix in the club was amazing — the a--less chaps! Graeme: We like Jordan's butt, what can we say? [Laughs.]
John: [Laughs.] It's true. We do. We always wanted to put Felix a little bit more in his element, in the club, out with his friends… what's really fun about that is to bring Sarah into an environment like that, looking like a drowned rat, freaking out, can't get a hold of anyone, and find Felix in a--less chaps high on ecstasy, at the worst possible time. That's just me and Graeme kind of having a little fun with the characters.

SPOILER ALERT: This recap of the "Orphan Black" Season 2 premiere contains character and storyline spoilers.
They're baaack! Open your crafts closet, grab a glue gun, and design a big ol' thank you card, because our favorite clones — including one we didn't expect to see again — finally returned in "Orphan Black's" thrilling (and hilarious) second-season premiere on BBC America.
Like the series premiere — when Beth took off her heels and jumped in front of a subway train — "Nature Under Constraint and Vexed" got off to a fast and furious start. It picks up moments after the season finale, with Sarah frantically searching for her kidnapped daughter, Kira, and her guardian, Mrs. S.

Take everything you remember about the Salem witch trials from history class and English class readings of "The Crucible" and add in ghouls, some very randy, decidedly un-Puritanical sex scenes, and actual witches doing witchy things, and you have the new WGN drama series "Salem."
WGN's first scripted series, created by Adam Simon and "Star Trek," "Terra Nova," "24", "Cosmos" producer Brannon Braga, spices up the old school story of the Salem witch hunts not only with sex and scary supernatural creatures, but with actual witchcraft. In "Salem," witches do exist, and they're the ones egging on the witch hunts, for their own purposes.
But this fictional spin added to juice up the series doesn't mean the names you remember from high school are MIA. Cotton Mather, Tituba, and Giles Corey are among the real world characters who pop up in "Salem."

"Orphan Black" is finally back for more clone-tastic action (Season 2 premieres Saturday, April 18 at 9 p.m. on BBC America), and co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson promise exactly that in Season 2 — more action! Yahoo TV caught up with them to see what they'd tease about this bigger, badder season, new threats, the possibility of more clones, and the next level of the show's conspiracy.
The end of last season basically exploded, and everything we knew was in question — what can you tease about where we pick back up in Season 2? John: Well we always knew that the huge cliffhanger of Kira missing, and Mrs. S. missing also, that we were going to pick up right where we left off, with very little lapse in time. We just wanted it to kind of come out of the gates with a roar, you know? That was really important as a launching point for Season 2 — action!

"Game of Thrones" heartthrob Pedro Pascal (who plays the Red Viper, Oberyn Martell, on the HBO series) is generating new interest for "The Mentalist" as FBI Special Agent Marcus Pike , quieting fears that the CBS drama wouldn't be able to survive without its seasons-long Red John arc. In fact, last week's episode actually did a little better in the 18-49 demographic than the climactic episode where the killer was revealed.
Pascal , who has already appeared in one episode out of his (as of now) five-episode stint, is throwing a wrench into the smooth-running engine that is the chemistry between Simon Baker's Patrick Jane and Teresa Lisbon, played by Robin Tunney. The pair's flirting has grown more serious since the dark shadow of Red John has left the show, but fans hoping that they would get together after almost six full seasons may be in for a disappointment.

Huck and Quinn are moving up the ranks to become the most complicated relationship on "Scandal" — and that's saying a lot. From co-workers to co-torturers to lovers, these two have been through it all. But now that Huck's family is back in the mix, and Quinn said those three little words, where does the fan-favorite duo stand?

'Kitchen Nightmares' Producer on Amy's Baking Company: 'You Can't Help People That Can't Help Themselves'Robert Chan at Yahoo TV2 days ago
The first word you think of when you hear the name Gordon Ramsay is probably "shouting." But according to executive producer Kent Weed, that's not the reason people watch "Kitchen Nightmares."
In this exclusive clip from this week's special two-hour episode, Gordon has his host taste their own food with unpleasant results.
He doesn't yell, and the chef isn't being put through a series of grueling, manufactured challenges. The drama of the show comes from the real, organic challenges of running your own restaurant. "It's the nature of the show," said Weed. "We follow the action as it happens; we never know what's going to happen next. And that was a case in point. We had no idea that she was going to start choking."
Unlike some of Ramsay's other shows like "Hell's Kitchen" or "Masterchef," "Kitchen Nightmares" doesn't rely on competition to create drama. This means that shouting is unnecessary; his tactic is simply to hold a mirror up to a failing restaurant and give them "a wake-up call, a dose of reality, if you will," Weed explained.

Wait, does Westeros have coffee shops?
An eagle-eyed fanof "Game of Thrones" spotted a hilarious mistake in rehearsal footage from King Joffrey’s wedding. The Lannister family is lined up in the front row — and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is seen holding a coffee cup!
But that's not all – he's holding it with this right hand, the one that was cut off and replaced with a gold prosthetic. So, not only does King’s Landing have paper cups and a coffee chain, it has a facility for regrowing limbs. It's an even more magical place than we'd originally thought.
Of course, this is just from rehearsals, as "Game of Thrones" is meticulous about details. In any case, it's a fun little goof for fans — almost like an Easter egg, just in time for Easter.
"Game of Thrones" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
