In spite of all the negative media buzz and behind the scenes changes, I still felt compelled to tune into last night’s series premiere of ABC’S BROTHERS & SISTERS. No, not for Calista Flockhart – rather to support ALIAS alum Ron Rifkin.
Thankfully, Rifkin’s character, Sloane, sorry… Saul Holden, is already up to his evil antics, mysteriously moving around [family] funds from the company pension plan. Rifkin’s character aside, I found myself surprised with how much I enjoyed last night’s premiere. The pilot was well acted and enough questions were raised to keep me hooked. Whether or not I stay tuned will depend on the quality of the story-telling, but with Greg Berlanti (EVERWOOD) at the helm, I have faith that the show will remain must watch throughout the season.
