Amongst my top 10
15 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

When I first saw the preview for this show called Sisters I thought it was a new show. It started airing in the new prime time season (where I live) and so I assumed that it would be prime time. But it was shown just before prime time. Later I learned that it was actually reruns of an old (well, not that old) show. I would always watch the end of the Sisters episodes, being right before prime time. And I liked it so I started watching the episodes from the beginning and made it part of my television schedule. Sisters is a wonderful drama about... well, sisters. Four of them, with boys names: Teddy, Alex, Georgie and Frankie. I missed a lot of episodes (including the pilot) but I still got the hang of it and I love it! One thing that is great about Sisters is that the four sisters always remember themselves as teenagers or young children. It is kind of hard to explain what the younger versions are for, but in a nutshell they remind these siblings of the past, of what's important and can give them a whole new perspective on things. At few times it tends to get a bit too mushy but it is still very enjoyable. The acting is superb. Some of the best acting I've seen in a drama series. Sela Ward (who can now be seen in a show which still hasn't aired where I live, Once and Again) is great as Teddy and probably the character with the most life. Swoosie Kurtz, (Alex), Julianne Phillips (Frankie) and Patricia Kalember (Georgie) are also all wonderful, most the supporting cast is great, which includes the then not so famous Ashley Judd. I'd highly recommend that if you see Sisters in your TV guide that you watch one episode, worst thing that can happen you turn the TV off, though I'm pretty you sure you won't.
