  1. There are precious few signs of trouble or uncertainty in the polished, instantaneously seductive finished product on display in its first episode.
  2. The promise of grown up storytelling is alluring. This is a series to watch to see if it grows.
  3. Despite cast changes, rewrites, and producer musical chairs, this brainy soap checks in with promise.
  4. The pilot has a "Steel Magnolias" feel to it: Too many stars, too many faces, too many names, a cornucopia of character business.
  5. 10
    Not a single note in the premiere of "Brothers & Sisters" rings true.
