brothers and sisters

Thanks for all the great words of encouragement, everyone. You don’t know how much they mean to me. *hugs* I’m feeling so much better now that I got some of that “stuff” off my chest.

Plus, I’ve been comforting myself with… TV!!!

I finally sat down and watched 6 episodes of Brothers and Sisters today on and it’s SO GREAT. The cast is fantastic… Sally Field, Ron Rifkin, Calista Flockhart, Rachel Griffiths… they’re just ALL incredible. The siblings and really, the entire family, all have amazing chemistry and their interactions are genuine and real. The storylines get complicated and messy but they never become too dramatic and “soap-y.”
It doesn’t hurt that there’s some great eye candy in the form of Balthazar Getty too. Love him! It’s funny, though, I’ve watched about half of the episodes that have aired and I don’t have a favorite character yet. Right now I love all 5 siblings equally. They each have their little quirks that make me love them. I do know that I’m not crazy about the matriarch of the family, Nora Walker (Sally Field’s character). She means well but she can be so aggravating.

Anyway, I’m so excited Emily VanCamp is joining the cast of this show because I don’t think I would have started watching it otherwise. It’s a great find. You should watch it too!

I’m also excited that Jonathan Rhys Meyers is going to be on TV soon. His show, The Tudors, premieres April 1 on Showtime. I saw this picture and swooned…
