After last night’s episode, I think I’m ready to proclaim BROTHERS & SISTERS my new favourite show of 2006. Wait, or is it STUDIO 60 or HEROES? Okay, let’s just say that BROTHERS is in my top three. That said, I thought I’d offer up a few rules for my dear readers, in case you ever stumble upon the Walker Clan.
Rule #1: The food may be fantastic, but never, I repeat NEVER, accept an invitation to the Walkers for dinner. You’ll invariably end up in the middle of an incredibly akward family fight that will have members of the family asking to be excused early. For the record, I can’t believe Tommy asked his brother Kevin for a ‘donation’. What seems like a good idea now will no doubt lead to an incredibly sticy situation in the future.
Rule #2: There are no secrets in the Walker family. Spill something to one family member, the entire family will inevitably find out (over dinner!). How Saul thinks ‘Rebecca’ would remain a secret is ludicrous. Casting recommendation for BROTHERS & SISTERS executive producer Greg Berlanti. Please cast (EVERWOOD ALUM) Emily Van Camp as Holly’s not-so-secret daughter.
Rule #3: Choose your rendezvous spots carefully. Be it the family ranch, the attic, or the old tree house. With upwards of 10 family members walking around, odds are you’ll get caught, that, or fall out of the decades old tree house!
Rule #4: This will seem obvious, but judging from last night’s episode, it’s worth repeating. If any of you readers are having an affair — do not take photos of your secret love-child and leave them around for your family to uncover. Photographic evidence of your affair will only lead to heartbreak, or one messy divorce.
