  • I wish I belong to the Walker family…

    This is officially my first review for “Brothers & Sisters.” What can I say? Bravo to the writers!!! So far, you have never failed me. And to the actors as well, splendid! What a great cast! In this episode, Nora invited Holly and Rebecca for dinner. And I admire Nora for the humility she showed, welcoming Rebecca at her house. During the scene, you can really sense that Nora is struggling with the situation -- accepting that Rebecca is real and forgetting her own pain and hurt. It must have been very hard for her to embrace the truth that her late husband had a love child; and even more difficult, dealing with Rebecca at the dinner table - as Sarah said “This dinner has reached a new level of weirdness” and more so, imposing on her kids to get to know the 6th Walker sibling. Among the Walker siblings, Justin seems to be the mature one when it comes with dealing with the half-sister. He was the first one to really reach out to Rebecca and make her feel like she is one of them – a Walker. I am really starting to dislike Sarah. I know that she has a lot of things going on with her life, the prospect of running the business without Tommy and her troubled marriage to Joe, but seriously??!!! Of all people, I expected more sympathy from her -- for one thing, she is a mother and for another, she too, has a step son. I hope that as I go through the rest of the episodes of the season, I will witness a more "mature and compassionate" Sarah…

    As for the rest of the Walker kids, I am getting tired of Kevin’s relationship with the movie star, the constant bickering – I don’t find it cute anymore. As for Kitty, well, hats off to her for being so bluntly honest about her feelings to the Senator – well, she wouldn’t Kitty if she isn’t like that. I am so looking forward to watching the remaining episodes of season 1. I do hope the writers keep up the excellent work!
