    TV desperately needs a straightforward drama that explores family dynamics without some imposed gimmick, and Brothers & Sisters could just be the show to fill that bill.
  2. The promise of grown up storytelling is alluring. This is a series to watch to see if it grows.

    Meeting the Walker clan and getting a glimpse at their personal lives... is like being led to a table of tantalizing appetizers. Even as you take a sample of these introductory delights, you’re wondering whether the main course will live up to your expectations.
  4. 75
    Once "Brothers & Sisters" gets started, it works, and it works well.
  5. 75
    With fun, familiar faces like Field, Flockhart and Griffiths on board, attending a family reunion with the Walkers every Sunday could be a lively, entertaining way to end the weekend.
  6. There are precious few signs of trouble or uncertainty in the polished, instantaneously seductive finished product on display in its first episode.
  7. 80
    A network series potentially good enough to be on HBO.
  8. Despite cast changes, rewrites, and producer musical chairs, this brainy soap checks in with promise.
