Trivia

Unusually for a show that turned out to be a critical and commercial hit, in the weeks before the first episode aired, this show went through several cast and crew changes. The Walker family matriarch, Iva, played by Betty Buckley in the original pilot, was recast with Sally Field and renamed Nora. Walker brother Bryan, played by Jonathan LaPaglia, was recast with Matthew Rhys, renamed Kevin, and given a new back story (instead of Bryan being an ex-husband and father who was newly out of the closet, Kevin was a never-married lawyer who was more comfortable with his homosexuality). Marti Noxon was replaced as the showrunner by Greg Berlanti because of "creative differences." See more »

Just excellent
26 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Just excellent!!! I don't know why TV companies are trying to hide some talented actors just like Flockhart...She is an outstanding actress..and from her first 10 minutes of the show I knew I was going to love this show..with all of its relations and characters... This show is a breath-taker and I just love it...and I can't wait to see the more of it... we are all waiting... The characters and their problems were interesting to know! Calista Flockhart gets to use her very real acting ability portraying a character who has very little in common with Ally McBeal. Tom Skerritt and Sally Field are great as the parents, and each of the brothers and sisters has his or her own problems to deal with, and yet the story doesn't have the feel of a tear-jerking melodrama. The ending of this episode was a shocker, and it will be interesting to see if the writers can maintain the tension in future episodes
