Brothers and Sisters: The Wedding

As usual, Brothers & Sisters has a million and one things going on and then sort of falling into place by the end of the hour. Lets get this out of the way... Rebecca and Justin kiss!!! how Adoreeeeable. You know you were waiting and hoping with fingers crossed for it. Ever since they met and especially when he was dating that horrible friend of hers.



Last week Sarah's modesty and determination to get all the blame for the bad deal when she could barely contain her anger with Saul started to annoy me. I am liking her Sherlock Holmes-y side with unraveling all her father's illegitimate daughters and sons! Lovely drama. Who's going to track them down and break the news this time? Let's hope Ryan's cute and falls in into a love triangle with Rebecca and Justin after going through that whole awkward phase with the family. Too bad there's no Holly II.



So yes, we are getting a little ahead of ourselves. Back to Kevin. The gay marriage was more than I thought it would be.. it was oddly touching as most TV marriages are not, since it wasn't over or underdone. Just when I was starting think Nora should have moved to DC so she could quit her persistent nagging, she comes out with:


"Because tonight, Kevin. You don't get to be guarded or cynical. You and Scotty deserve tonight to be as romantic and as memorable as anyone else's."


Best thing she says all season.

Has anyone else's sexiness radar gone down for Robert ever since he stopped running for President? He just looks lazy and retired now, with not a lot of smart things to say. The baby is going to turn him into a woman... but there's always next term.



Holly is turning out to be more cunning than I thought. The damage control merging of the two companies was devilishly clever. Whether she knew or didn't know Rebecca was not William's daughter before, she definitely played up to the assumption while it still suited her. If Sarah cuts Holly off though, won't she be screwing Rebecca over too? It's not like she has a job. Oh yeah, where is Rebecca staying?! NOT with the Walkers? Not in Justin's bedroom? Hah


Anyway, sentimental episode. I'm sure it posed an important message that gay pride is getting more accepted in the primetime TV realm. It's a big step and should be commended. Next episode... can we find out who Ryan is already?

I agree with you - Nora's character this episode was so perfect - she was getting a bit on the naggy side, but her supportive, loving side definitely shone through this week! That was the *perfect* thing to say and made all of her nagging tendencies seem less annoying!
And yes, Robert has turned into an old man in a retirement community- I couldn't have said it better myself. He definitely lost his sex appeal since he became so domesticated! Maybe it was the idea that a politician was being so honest and human that was such a turn on? In any case - Rob Lowe has had sexier days!
And it's no wonder that Brothers & Sisters won for the second year in a row Outstanding Drama Award at the GLAAD awards for being so gay-friendly! I'm glad they are willing to push the limits and make it so normal to have a gay character! :)
