How funny was it when Nora got 'dressed up', and went to that party!

Senator McCallister lets me have hope one day we can have a real nice guy for a president. Yes, its only on TV!

Looking forward to next week when Rebecca and Joe have some kind of intimate moment! Personally, I can't stand Sarah, she is just too evil for my liking.

I like this show too. I do have some turn offs though -- I don't like Calista, and I don't like Holly. I'm not sure if for either, or both that it's the actress herself or the character she plays, but I don't like either one.

I am just so glad it was renewed. What a fantastic show. I think it is my very favorite. It beat out Grey's Anatomy that I think has lost their good story lines lately.

I just love this show. I love the love and the family. Makes me wish I had a loving disfunctional family like that growing up.

There is definitely going to be another season--it's been renewed.

Thank god...I can't imagine not watching that show every week. It's one of the best things that's come along in a long time.

I'm going to miss it over the summer!!

I wish there would be more new shows in that genre, and cut down on everything being a Reality show...

This show has something for everyone. Yes the summer will not be the same without our favorite shows.

I guess this summer it is BB all day ~ all the time. LOL

As a Mom of premature twins, the episode before the finale was really emotional for me. I think I cried the entire episode. It was very well written and acted.

I love love loved the finale. The end was wonderful. I cried my eyes out with Justin's leaving, then I laughed with tears at the end in the pool. I will miss the show too.

The only thing that seemed amiss to me was Saul. With that wonderful, liberal family, I'm not quite understanding why he would hide that he's gay, or hide having had a gay relationship. Guess I'll just have to wait for next season. In the meantime, I'll be watching all over again in the reruns. :)

I watched the first 4 eppys and now have the rest of the season to watch. I really liked what I saw. I still have to watch LOST and I fear I'm not going to make it before BB starts. :disappointed:

I am more than a little excited.

This has been one of my all-time favorite shows. I've watched every episode from the opening one (sometimes taped).

It's an absolutely great dramatic series..reminiscent of the style of earlier dramas.

Brothers and Sisters

by Rhoda Charles

The War At Home

Episode Recap: "Home Front"

As Brothers and Sisters jumps into its second season, it's nice to see that the neurotic and argumentative Walkers are still just that. The little quirks that made us love them last year are all back in full force. They talk over one another, pick at each other, hold mini-grudges against each other, get drunk together and they worry about each other. Tonight it was the worrying that was at the crux of the show.

Justin, still on active duty in Iraq, has not been in touch for 21 days. Is he okay? Is he injured . . . or worse? Starting the show off with Nora recording a video message to her son was an effective way of catching us up with the family and keeping Justin's off-screen character as much a part of the show as the rest of the family. One of my favorite moments was just after Nora signed off and her game face immediately reverted back to the mask of concern that we know she's been wearing since that tearful airport good-bye in last season's finale. There's no wondering in my book why Sally Field won the Emmy.

The whole family is concerned about their baby brother, but life goes on. It's Kitty's birthday and she has come home from campaigning with the senator to not celebrate. Of course, this means there's going to be a party thrown by none other than Rebecca, the interloper in the family as far as Kitty's concerned. That's no surprise, however, since Kitty is constantly surly. For some reason, Kitty feels it's her prerogative to be flat-out rude to Rebecca. Granted, the girl is living in Kitty's room. Can someone explain that? The Walker manse is expansive and we know, since Kitty slept on its hard mattress, that they have a guest room. And Rebecca has a mother! Sure, they had a spat about Rebecca's "tryst" with Joe, but I find it hard to believe that the strong-willed Holly would just let that situation continue for three months.

It could be that Holly is biding her time, since she has more or less absconded with Tommy. Tit for tat. I doubt it though, since she and Nora are building their own friendship. Awkward as it may be to find your husband's mistress one step and a giant flower arrangement ahead of you when visiting your dead husband's grave, it was a nice moment to see them both get their backs up as they suspected an approaching busty brunette of being yet another woman in William's life.

The question, as Tommy so appropriately raised, is this: "Are we over hating Holly yet?" It certainly seems like the writers want us to lose some of that distaste that she engendered last season, but I'm just not sure that we've seen the last of Holly's vindictive side yet. Who knows? If Holly becomes the woman scorned again now that Saul is trying not to make eyes at Milo, Holly may just bare her fangs once more. Before you hit "submit" on your comment . . . I know that these two have put their burgeoning relationship to bed, but still, I'm sure Holly would like Saul to pine for her just a mite bit longer before moving on.

Speaking of pining, we have Tommy's wife, who has been mourning the loss of their baby son, William. She doesn't want to be around her rambunctious in-laws. Understandable. But when word comes that Justin's unit was hit by a roadside bomb, she puts aside her grief to be there for the family. That's great. Maybe next week I'll remember her name.

So yes, after endless worrying about Justin's lack of communication and arguing with Kitty over not asking the senator to use his connections to get news about her son, the senator broke with his ethics and pulled some strings. He informed the family that Justin was fine and was returning from a mission and would be in touch soon. Two minutes later
