Critic Reviews

  1. Brothers really is not that bad a show.
  2. Reviewed by: Verne Gay
    Neither offensive nor particularly funny, it's merely another average, laugh-track-addled sitcom. The four leads are fine; they just need better material.
  3. Brothers starts with a noble idea: Bring two estranged adult brothers together by forcing them to live in their parents' house again. It just doesn't quite achieve either poignance or real comedy.
  4. Strahan's not yet up to his cast mates' level and the writing's uneven in tonight's back-to-back episodes--producers need, for instance, to figure out just how serious Weathers' character's forgetfulness is meant to be--but there are a few great moments.
  5. The balance between humor and pathos is a hard one, and this show teeters on the edge and occasionally falls flat.
  6. 50
    A peppy but mediocre sitcom.
  7. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry
    While the idea doubtless looked good on the chalkboard, Brothers turns out to be all game plan, and no game.
  8. 40
    Watching this show was the worst kind of sitcom experience--mediocre material, piercing laugh track noise, wasted talent, and a memory-impaired father who is fascinated by the fact that some men shave their “wiggly-dos.’’
