An okay show, but there are funnier shows of its ilk
30 July 2012 | by (Ladson, SC) – See all my reviews

"Brother's Keeper" is a fairly mediocre sitcom that just isn't in the same league as "Perfect Strangers" or "Two and Half Men". It doesn't have any of the slapstick of the former, or any of the charming humor of the latter. Needless to say, I can see why it was cancelled. Oscar and Felix are no Charlie and Alan, and certainly no Larry and Balki (The stars don't exactly have chemistry). Also, the character of Deena is completely unnecessary, whether you find her interesting or not. However, this show is worth checking out at least once. This was one of 5 TGIF shows to get the ax after a full season. "Two of a Kind" was also dull, but at least the Olsen twins brought some interest to their show.
