Brothers & Sisters *Season Premiere* - "Home Front" - 9/30/07

"Home Front"
Spoiler:
The Walker family struggle to find cheer in celebrating Kitty's birthday. Sarah fights to salvage what's left of her failing marriage; Kevin learns the hard way about the sacrifices that true love brings; Tommy is at a loss as to how to provide the emotional support needed by his overwhelmed wife, Julia, after the death of their newborn son, while Kitty gets a first hand look at the challenges of being engaged to a U.S. senator. Meanwhile, Saul questions his identity after a visit from an old friend, and the family's newest member, Rebecca, tries desperately to find her place in this very complex family puzzle.

One of the shows I'm really looking forward to tonight. It will be interesting to see how this season progresses since Greg Berlanti has left as showrunner to work on Eli Stone.

I'm there. This has become my favorite show, and I'm actually watching the First Season DVD, as we speak. This, and Desperate Housewives, are what Sunday night television are all about!

I'm actually scared... I LOVED the first season - easily the best thing on television last year! But with Berlanti only a supervising producer instead of a show-runner I'm scared as to how this show will progress (EVERWOOD was still good in seasons 3 and 4, but it just didn't have the same strive the first two seasons had when Berlanti was in charge of things). Personally I wish networks would put show runners under contract for a number of years - like the cast.

But despite my fears I'm pshyced for tonights episode! Only 2 hours and 29 minutes :-)

Wow, this episode has been awesome, so far!

The fight between Nora and Kitty, in the dress shop, was great!

LOFL! The whole family arguing while waiting for a seat at the Mexican restaurant! Nora yelling at the group of guys, telling them all about her family problems, and saying, "So, if you could all move your drunken asses out of the seats, maybe my family can enjoy a damn burrito, and end this miserable evening!" Great stuff!

This was a "classic" episode for the series. I really liked the bookends with Sally Field and Emily Vancamp - it added a perfect sentimental tone to the episode.

My one complaint with the episode though lies within Kevin. Now I know many of my friends havn't really enjoyed his character - but for one reason or another I've always kinda liked him. But tonight he kept pissing me off, I had never realized how whiney/needed his character had become...

Oh, and it was nice to see Tommy and his wife finally get some screentime, let alone their own story-arc in a non-sweep episode .

The series has not lost the momentum that it started in season 1. Great writing, Funny scenes, heartfelt emotions and great dialogue.

I know it's Los Angeles, but still... does every man that Kevin dates have to look like a model?

While I found alot of the family annoying this episode, I think Kevin had the annoying dialed up to 11 this episode. Jeez.

The fight in the wedding dress shop was pretty funny.

Otherwise good episode. Great stuff watching everybody go at it at the Mexican Restaurant.

Well in his defense, he IS supposed to be Rob Lowe's brother. Besides I think we know that Kevin is pretty much shallow enough to only date "hotties".

On another note, I saw that John Pyper-Ferguson was listed as a guest star in this episode which I assume means he is no longer a full-time cast member on the show. Guess it is bye-bye Joe Whedon!

I read he was demoted to guest star and will be recurring.
As for Kevin dating Hotties, have you ever thought he just attracts them? Kevin is not bad looking.

I don't think Kevin was any more annoying than any other family member is at times.
