Not only did this TV Addict not make it home in time to catch the return of my favorite fictional BROTHERS & SISTERS, I woke up early this morning only to discover that GlobalTV [the Canadian Network that simulcasts the show] had hijacked the ABC HD feed and worse still, didn’t even bother broadcasting the show in high definition. Something which by the way I pay big bucks for. Needless to say, Global TV should expect an angry email in their inbox this morning [because that will show 'em!]
Moving on to the first half of BROTHERS & SISTERS — I’ll simply say this. Can we finally put an end to Senator McCallister’s Presidential aspirations? Sure it was a handy device to integrate the dashing Senator further into the Walker clan. But now that he’s trapped… err, I mean married to Kitty and let’s face it, the show’s focus has long stopped being on Kitty’s political career, why bother? This isn’t THE WEST WING and unless the show’s planning on sending Robert and Kitty off to Washington, which by the way would a fantastic spin-off idea — the show needs to find something else for Robert to do.
Sadly folks, that’s all I got folks. My sincerest apologies, but since I’m a television snob who couldn’t get through the entire episode in [gasp!] standard definition, the rest is up to you. What did you think of the second half of BROTHERS & SISTERS? Somehow I have a feeling Nora didn’t go to Washington and the episode ended with Rebecca holding onto the envelope containing her [double gasp!] DNA results. Post away. And while you’re at it, feel free to chime in on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES as well.
