A year after his father's fatal accident, Joe Roman returns to Philadelphia to collect his share of his Dad's estate, a car customizing business. His reunion with Claire and his half-brothers is a little rocky. Despite her best efforts, Claire is struggling to keep the business afloat. Fifteen-year-old Matt, tormented by a number of teen crises both real and imagined, harbors a lot of resentment toward Joe. And Andy, a wildly imaginative seven-year-old, can't quite hide his need for a father figure. It doesn't take Joe long to realize how much he's needed, so he accepts Claire's offer to move in and work in the family business. Downstairs in the garage, Joe works alongside his father's pit-crew chief, the slightly scrambled Lloyd, and Lou, a feisty conceptual artist/mechanic.

Hey, Lou, you still having those wild dreams about me?

An excellent show that never should have been cancelled
Brotherly Love was a show that innocently taunted the dramas of being a teenager and played with the idea that two co-workers would come to realize their love for each other. It was funny, honest, and had an excellent cast (especially Liz Vassey as Lou Davis and Michael McShane as Lloyd Burwell.) Cancelling such a great show was a mistake and I look forward to the weekend to see reruns.
