Show Summary

Sisters introduced us to a group of sisters, Alex (Swoosie Kurtz), Georgie (Patricia Kalember), Teddy (Sela Ward), Frankie (Julianne Phillips) and Charley (Jo Anderson & Sheila Kelley). They dealt with life, love, children, death, divorce, marriage and virtually everything else. All through they were held together by their mother, Bea (Elizabeth Hoffman).

The show became a hit with viewers. In the first episode we saw Teddy write the word 'Slut' on her sister Frankie's car, and in the last episode we saw the sisters deal with the death of their mother. The audience got to know and love these sisters...

During it's run, Sisters earned one Emmy, which went to Sela Ward in 1994. In total, it received 5 Emmy nominations. Sisters was nominated for two Golden Globes during its six season run: in 1993 (for Best Series-Drama) and in 1994 (for Best Drama Actress-Sela Ward). Kurtz was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award in 1995 and Ward was nominated in 1996.

  • Forget DVDs Hulu/Netflix/Amazon prime, please

    Every Nov. 6 I bring this show up because a special surprise was supposed to happen on the show that night, and I wound up in the hospital waiting to have my first child. He's 20 now. I had forgotten to set the VCR, so it took me 6 years before I got to see that particular episode. This show kept me company when he was in the hospital after he was born (for a month). Georgie's "Some Tuesday in July" speech hits home. They became my sisters, living in my state, going into my city. With a husband who worked the second and third shifts, and a newborn at home, this show was my best friend, sometimes. I would love for it to be on DVD, but I would be even happier if some company put it up to stream. It is an NBC/Universal/USA show, so as soon as they decide it is in their best interest, maybe we will see it. Please, please, please???

  • Bring it to dvd!!! I looked forward all week long for this show. I was so disappointed when it went off the air. A wonderful cast, great story lines and very enjoyable to watch.moreless

    Bring it to DVD - Please!!!!! They have brought shows to DVD that were on TV in the 50's.... what's the hold up? I am an only child and although this was fiction it was a source of entertainment and it gave me a much needed break from being a new mom. The story lines were believable and heart breaking at times as well as funny and heart warming. I didn't have a favorite character or story line; they were all great. I can say that I was especially entertained by John's character. All in all, I miss the show terribly and would very much like to purchase the series on DVD.moreless
