The Good Enough Parent | Ep. 3 | Fatherhood

Learning that it’s OK to make mistakes isn’t easy. Watch as Hank Azaria talks to friends and experts about getting through it all.

About ‘Fatherhood’: Hank Azaria’s touching, humorous, and often enlightening journey from a man who is not even sure he wants to have kids, to a father going through the joys, trials and tribulations of being a dad.

Let me just add this. The story about the subway at around 2:40 is one of my WORST nightmares. Fortunately it has never happened to me:

Hank Azaria, Kevin Bacon and Bryan Cranston on fatherhood

Celebrity dads including Kevin Bacon, Bryan Cranston and Mike Myers open up to Hank Azaria as he quizzes them about fatherhood in this candid documentary series.

It’s not often you’ll see Hollywood personalities speaking so openly and honestly about such an intimate subject, but Hank ‘s frank questioning encourages his friends to speak from the heart.

Hank is best known for his work on The Simpsons. He provides the voices for Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum and Comic Book Guy.

Although his work is loved by children the world over, Hank had never seen the appeal of having kids of his own. He’d reached an age when many of his friends had started families and so he set out to make a documentary about what makes someone want to be a father.

But in the process of filming Hank’s girlfriend discovers she is pregnant causing Hank to rethink the documentary and turn it into a very personal and touching record of his journey into fatherhood, as he seeks advice from his famous friends.

And what is the deal with men needing to be civilized? That needs further explanation:

We hear it all the time: “America is patriarchal!”, “American women are oppressed!”. Well, a lifelong feminist and former National Organization for Women member, Tammy Bruce, is tired of hearing it–and she has a solution laid out in our newest video: Feminism 2.0. One that tells women that they should be proud to act feminine. One that tells them that simply copying men and masculine traits is actually demeaning to women. One that honors all responsible choices, including becoming a wife and mother.
