    A clutter of clunky dialogue that sucks the life out of [Flockhart] and other usually skilled actors.

    The show wants to mix in big themes (politics, money) with a family soap opera, but it just feels bloated and vague. [25 Sep 2006, p.43]

    It's the sort of talky tedious drama that is far less intelligent than it clearly thinks it is.

    The show seems as if it desperately yearns to be a worthy companion to "Housewives" but lacks the requisite bite, despite political references meant to feel edgy that prove mostly banal.

    If you're looking for the deep emotional truths that the creators of ABC's would-be heart-tugger imagine they're after, well, pro wrestling might be a good choice.

    Not a single note in the premiere of "Brothers & Sisters" rings true.
