As ever I find myself way behind the times with TV series. Remember how I fell in love with The Gilmore Girls a few years ago, long after everyone else had known and loved the series? Well this time my heart has been kidnapped by Brothers & Sisters.
When this first came out in the UK several years ago I remember watching the first episode and just not really getting it. Well, the other week I spotted B&S Series 1 as a cheapo DVD in the supermarket. Always one to find something to watch I picked it up.
I was hooked. Completely smitten. Drawn in to every episode. Sitting in that kitchen. At that dinner table. Arguing with those characters. Laughing with them. Crying with them.
Yes a fan was born!
I’m now on to Series 3 and loving every minute.
That dinner table where it all kicks off at every meal
Rob Lowe is just so scrummy. Kitty fights like a polecat for everything. I adore her elder Sarah who I didn’t take to at first, but now think is wonderfully human. We’ve seen her as the focused business woman, loving Mum, pissed and silly and singing karaoke, in love and in trouble.
Sally Field – well what can you say. The woman is perfect. Now this one puzzles me, who is the actress that plays the bitch from hell, Holly? I know what her name is but what was she in before, I recognise her but can’t place her. Was it Dallas or something?
I love Kevin, can’t beleive the guy is English, he really has nailed the accent. Justin is just a dream, but I’ve never taken to Tommy. Sol, hmmmmmm lets not go there. The grizzled stubble put me off from the start and when he screwed up the company and left Sarah in the shit…….
Am I obsessed?
What on earth will I do when I finish the boxed set?
