Sure, it may be a chick flick extended out over a series of one hour vignettes on television but does that make it a bad show?  It some eyes, yes.  But, Brothers and Sisters is a surprisingly poignant show about a family so dysfunctionally real that it can only be described as…real.  The acting is great and the writing is done with such a clarity that I haven’t seen since the shortly lived One & Again with Selma Ward.  If you are looking for mystery, watch Lost.  If you are looking for a thriller, watch 24.  If you are looking for a comedy watch How I Met Your Mother.  If you are looking for a deeper drama without the soapie elements, head to Brothers and Sisters.
