    A network series potentially good enough to be on HBO.

    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.
  3. Despite cast changes, rewrites, and producer musical chairs, this brainy soap checks in with promise.

    The good news is that "Brothers & Sisters" isn't even remotely a disaster. The bad news is that it isn't even remotely a success either.
  5. "Brothers & Sisters"... has all the traditional themes of unhappy marriage, unmet parental expectations, unexpected financial chicanery and (possibly) unfaithfulness. It deals with them convincingly, though not with any great depth or insight.
  6. Based on the first episode... we're talking predictable prime-time soap.
  7. 10
    Not a single note in the premiere of "Brothers & Sisters" rings true.
