Shout out to my new favorite TV Show...Brothers & Sisters
I've decided I have a new favorite TV show....ABC's Brothers & Sisters. While I'm still a die-hard "Grey's Anatomy" fan, for me, "Brothers & Sisters" has officially become the best show on network television. Any series that features my favorite 80s stars (hello Rob Lowe), and Patricia Wettig from "Thirtysomething," throw in Sally Field, who was in one of my favorite tear jerker movies of all time ("Steel Magnolias") sprinkle in Calista Flockhart - who is actually more likable as Kitty than she was as "Ally Macbeal" and then surprise me at the end with Ken Olin, another "Thirtysomething" alum and there you have it. The perfect ingredients for a show that has me hooked. It doesn't matter that it's on Sunday nights when I'm completely pooped from the weekends' festivities. I relish the fact that everyone is already in bed and I can curl up with my blanket and watch this delicious show. Tonight I wept right along with Nora (Sally Field) as Kitty and Robert tied the knot. Loved the tension between the brothers, the humor, the guest stars (Chevy Chase and Danny Glover), Rachel Griffiths - who nails the frazzled working mom role to a tee and completely lit up when Ken Olin made his surprise appearance. Something tells me that he's going to be sticking around for awhile and I couldn't be happier. So if you haven't checked out this show yet, it's time you tuned into Brothers & Sisters - this one's a keeper - the stuff that Emmys are made of.
