Brothers & Sisters
« on: January 03, 2007, 12:07:49 AM »
Has anyone else been watching this show on ABC? It's replaced "Grey's Anatomy" in my affections. Good ensemble cast. Kinda on the mushy side, but that hasn't bothered me yet. Dave Annable, who plays the youngest brother, is droolworthily hot, and I find the Welsh actor Matthew Rhys, who plays the gay lawyer sibling, just adorable.

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

It's still Sunday night (10/9 Central). But they've been spacing the new episodes too far apart. The next new episode is this Sunday, the 7th. Can't wait.

Do you think they'll bring back Kevin's cater-waiter love interest, Scotty? I never liked him, I felt so jealous.

I never liked the TV anchor guy Calista had a fling with (he's been on many shows). His face seems stretched tiiiight -- bad plastic surgery and/or botox? I'll google it. Now Rob Lowe -- I thoroughly approve of Kitty (Calista) falling for him. I believe he's been signed on for at least six episodes. J.

And of course it's only a matter of time before the illegitimate daughter, Rebecca, will make an appearance.

My favorite moment: When Kevin gets cruised by that hunk in the military bar. (Of course that would be my favorite moment.)

Least favorite moment: When that annoying little girl, Paige, asks: "Did I get diabetes because I'm not Jewish enough?"

And there's a new episode next week and the week after that as well. Hurray! Here's hoping that since it averages 14 million viewers per episode, the show's second season is a guarantee.

Dave Annable (Justin) is heartbreakingly beautiful. I'd give him money for drugs in exchange for sex.  ;D Hey, maybe that should be a plot line...

Not sure I approve of Kevin's biphobia -- or bi-dismissal or whatever. ("Have you ever met a 70-year-old bisexual? That's why they say, Bi now, gay later.") I'm jealous of anyone Kevin's interested in so needless to say I don't like the Chad character.

Edited to add: They just kissed. This plot line is going to kill me.

I dont like how Chad was so casual  about it and the next day at the gym Kevin had to move aside for the girlfriend.  I dont like where the storyline is going.
I like Kevin but they have to tone down the makeup....looks like he always has lipstick on.
It took me a few episodes but Im really liking this show.

I accidently caught the first episode when it came on and have been hooked ever since. I think I've missed one episode because it didn't record on my DVR.  There was a deal in Parade Magazine Sunday, January 14, 2007 about Sally Field and the show.  She wasn't the first choice for Nora but has turned out to be the glue in the mix.  Glad they are going for a full season of 22 episodes.  And glad we are getting a new one weekly now.  They have even started streaming some of them on abc.com.

*GASP!*  How could Sally Field not be the first choice for anything?!  I just love her!  Can't imagine anyone else in that role!  Wonder who else they were thinking of?  I was also hooked by episode one and was crossing fingers tat the rest of the country picked up on it also to keep it afloat.

Sally Field replaced Betty Buckley, apparently. But Sally Field plays Nora to perfection.

They're giving us a new episode next week -- Chad (Jason Lewis, aka Smith Jerrod from SATC) wants to keep his encounters with Kevin on the DL of course. But after January 21, the next episode is THREE WEEKS after that, February 11. Damnations. But it is called, promisingly, "Valentine Day's Massacre."

For episodes missed, the season to date now available on abc.com.

Yes, Parade says that Betty Buckley was replaced at the "last minute" by Sally Field who "found it fascinating, so I took a leap of faith."    She does play Nora to perfection!  I can't imagine the show without her.  And I've always been a fan of hers.

Tonight's episode -- not so compelling I thought. But I sure enjoyed seeing Matthew Rhys shirtless in bed.

Here he's in bed with Kathleen Turner. West End production of "The Graduate."

Yeah.  Last night's episode was all hyped as being oh-so-sexy and steamy.  Ho-hum.  Not bad, but 'not to be missed' either.
